Where is the best place to live?

Many people say London is the best city in the world? Do you agree?

Where is a better place to live a big city with all its pollution, crowds and noise or a remote rural area by the sea?

Good mood or bad mood?

I normally don`t like this kind of photo but this one caught my eye. I love the facial expression and feeling of joy she displays. It contrasts starkly with the ugly hairy camel sitting beside the girl.

Winter Blues

This is a great photo of the misty, dull sky that we often get at this time of year. 

I like the close- up of the tree branches in the foreground, providing some interest and colour. It is bleak and cold but there is a hint of Spring and better, warmer days.

  • I'm having a really peachy time!
  • I'm walking on air!

Living by the sea

There is a lot to be said for living in a warm climate and close to the sea. This must be what they mean by Jumping for joy.
