eye candy

isn't this lovely
i saw it this morning standing so straight and tall and beautiful
i waited til this afternoon so the light would be just right.

to me,
the background (light)
is as important as the subject
i was trying to explain that to carlos, our spanish gardener.
i wish you could have been a fly on the wall for that conversation
i don't know how to say words like:
focus, subject, bokeh
in spanish
so i gave up and weakly smiled and said,
que bonita si?
that's pretty yes?

that's pretty yes!!
i call this eye candy
something sweet for our eyes

hope your thursday has been a sweet one
i was so happy to spend the afternoon with laura and sebastian
went for a drive
then came back here for lunch

we had one scare though!
she had brought lola her Chihuahua with her
and as we were gathered up sebastian, bags etc
suddenly, moto, our crazy island dog came barging in the house
(which he never does!!)
with full intention to rip lola to pieces
i was so scared that i lunged to grab moto, 
and stepped on sebastians hand!!
laura grabs lola who was quivering madly in her arms
sebastian is crying!

total mayhem and chaos!
we were all shaken up
such is life when you own a guard dog

that is why it was so nice to go for a quiet stroll through the garden
after they left!
