Lazy, Rainy Afternoon

It was raining by the time I was finished with my 'to do' list today and did not feel inspired to go out to take photos. Instead, I've dusted off a couple that are fun anyway. The one below I caught from across the street - it is a beauty shop for gentlemen - including facial treatments and manicures.

The photo below is a park in District 7 that had been beautified recently when the Ramada Inn took up residence in the neighborhood. The playground is particularly well equipped and car traffic was reduced a great deal in the neighborhood.

Fenix - OH, YES!!! THANK YOU for the suggestion. Just look at the difference in the photos. That was very generous of you to help.

Great photos. I love that you leave them in large so when enlarged you can see so much more detail.

Grooming for males? Not such a bad idea for special occasions.

My pleasure. Big difference, yes. :)

I felt the same and used an old photo, too. Must be spreading around. :)

Clueless - it was Fenix who told me HOW to make them appear larger than the initial small frames that were automatically assigned by the program. :) I love the difference too.

j. Andrew - for a moment I thought I would fib and pass them off as new, but the budding trees in the first photo and the rich foliage in the second were too much of a giveaway :)

Fenix :)

Thank you all for visiting.

I like the big photos too. Do you care to share how you did that? I upload my photos are large, but they still appear small in my blog.

WoW...some very beautifully captured shots....

about your query on my site Calcutta DP, those are bangles of gold studded with jewels.Thanks!

Isadora, I think Clueless in Boston meant that he loves that, when clicked, the photos enlarge to 1600 pixels.

AVCR8TEUR, I just checked and your blog template needs to be wider to accommodate larger photos. So first you have to change or widen your template. You can choose a wide template from "settings" or change the width of your current one manually (do a search on "how to change blog width").

I have had a lot of those rainy afternoons. Nice pictures.

The playground must be wonderful, for city children.

And anything which slows/reduces traffic, is good for that reason, alone. :-)

This playground (+ Ramada Inn) is in the district 9 :)

:) Andrey! you got me - I still get confused about that, but you are right. Since it is your neighborhood you'll keep me honest.
