Here's a larger view of yesterday's post. The residence for this horse farm is still out of sight, to the left.

The guy on the bench is nicely juxtaposed with the American flag.

Seems to be in a relaxed mood. Of course the place also looks like to be relaxed in.

The lush green view in the 2nd picture is very inviting. Would love to visit such a place.

I dunno, what is he waiting for? Awhile?

I saw the house in the first pic--I'll still take the barn. LOL

No lakes freezing over in Western Washington, at least where I live. In Eastern Washington where is get much colder you could go ice skating.

I have pics of our dog on our frozen pond. But she was a little dog and the ice creaked and wobbled and I worried about the dog. but she was an adventuress. MB

Some times you just feel like sitting. I bet he's in that mood.

He looks like he's just watching the world go by. That second photo, what a nice looking farm. Those horses have a pretty nice place.

Any way they take me in as a horse?

This could be a universal scene. Could be Minnesota, Wisconsin, Texas, California...... could be most places in the US. For some reason it is hard for me to see as being Florida. I guess I am blinded by thoughts of the keys hen I think Florida.
It is an amazing view.

Maybe he's just waiting for something to happen!

Not a breeze to stir the flag. Was it hot?

Halcyon said...

Waiting for a second wind perhaps?

Jacob said...

@ Brattcat - You betcha!

Jacob said...

@ Lois - That could take forever in Ocala! ;-)

I like the photo of the guy waiting for.... And thanks for the longer view of the horse farm. It really could be a horse farm here. ;-)

Your photography is just starting to snap and is so crisp I would guess you got a new expensive camera? I am certainly impressed again.

I invite you to stop and look at my Canon camera photographs. They are some of the best I can or have taken. My Canon Blog

Where is Godot anyways?

Ilse said...

Seems as though Florida is enjoying the same fine weather that we have here in New England. Cloudless skies & crystal clear sunlight.

Per Stromsjo said...

Even the flag is waiting. For a gust of wind...

jusdealem said...

Nice! He's sitting there gazing at the sushi place wondering, "How do people eat that stuff??" Well, that's what I'd be doing, anyway. LOL

Maybe he is waiting until someone comes with a horse to pick him up. (; Nice shots!

Jarart said...

Nice little place they have there!
The guy? He was waiting for someone to take his picture and post it on a blog.

Becky said...

I think he looks like he's just enjoying the afternoon. (Or morning, whichever!) He's enjoying the moment, really.

Marie-Noyale said...

Or just may be enjoying some cooler air..
and watching the passers by...

You got a Posty: I want to give 15 postcards :)
