Big imposing, a lot to take in. What catches my attention, are all the interesting geometric details, with the fading light, I lingered here and there with my eyes, chasing shadows that were by now long and wide ready to call it a day.
Although my husband and I were both taking in the scene, our focus and attention was drawn in totally different directions. The time was spent by each of us in his own “world” at that given time. The crowd gathered at the picnic tables, were oblivious to our wanderings, and really, that is how it should be…. if you are paying attention to other activities besides the one you are “involved” in, then you are not being “present” in the moment, with the people you are meeting with.
My husband and I are aware that each has his/her own “interests”, we respect and allow that to happen, when we are back in the car and on our way, we share the “adventure” and often get a new perspective to entice and draw us back.
Like the birds, we will fly by and explore another time
