Steal my Sunshine

Posted by
Mooie (Vancouver, Canada) on 7 September 2012 in Lifestyle & Culture.

It's still warm out during the day, but the mornings and evenings are cooling off considerably. At least I'm not the only one trying to squeeze the last drops of good times before the weather turns for good. Lately one of my guilty pleasures has been this pop tune from back in the day... :-)

I am not sure how or when, but posting on this blog has become my most accurate platform for creative expression. It's so inspiring to browse through other blogs and every comment is very appreciated!

CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

Your volley ball scene has way more feel and style than the one I put up today

7 Sep 2012 10:48am

@CElliottUK: Perhaps in some eyes... but perhaps that's because I don't have the option of taking the crystal clear action shot that you managed :-) Many thanks either way

Dana from Tarzana, CA,, United States

Love the flare. And the warm energy of this beach scene.

7 Sep 2012 12:14pm

@Dana: Thanks a lot!

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Love this scene ! They are playing with the sun as their ball. Yeah, squeeze every last wonderful drop out of the weather, the daily gift of life, the MUSICal Universe... and hit reset each morning to do it all again. Great Len track, bringing back good radio memories.

7 Sep 2012 3:11pm

@Rick: Yeah I guess they are making good use of that big fireball :-) I don't always want to hit reset... but the last bit of weather has been great! Glad you liked the Len... I often wonder what sounds you'd match with your sights :-) Thanks for sharing your thoughts :-)

Sue-Ann from Quebec, Canada

some team should be disadvantage by the sun... great sunset shot...

7 Sep 2012 10:33pm

@Sue-Ann: I never thought about that, but you are probably right! Thanks for the comment :-)

Baldwin VW from Bejuma, Venezuela

Amazing beach scene ... lighting and colors are just wonderful !!!

8 Sep 2012 1:35am

@Baldwin VW: Thanks a lot... though I have to admit I saturated a little :-)

gerard1948 from Santiago de Compostela, Spain

A beautiful image, the players are in silhouettes. Face the sun is very strong, this is a beautiful picture, I love

8 Sep 2012 4:37pm

@gerard1948: I'm glad, thanks a lot!

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Hello again : on matching sounds with sights, it may seem odd but I prefer to leave the visual alone so that viewers can perhaps "hear" something of their own, although sometimes I envision a perfect sonic match. I guess I like it when others do it, but won't do it myself ;)

8 Sep 2012 7:12pm

@Rick: It's not odd at all... just a different perspective ;-p If you ever change your mind... know that there is at least one photo blogger who is curious

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

A pretty late afternoon. Nice!

10 Sep 2012 5:34pm

@Steve Rice: It was actually getting cold already!

Abena from Maseru, Lesotho

That's one real beautiful image! both the title and the image remind me of how I feel whenever we have to leave the beach when holidays end... I like the light a lot!!

11 Sep 2012 7:58pm

@Abena: Yeah, the beach is hard to leave when it is nice and warm outside... especially if you know you won't be back for a while. Thanks a lot for the visit :-)
