A Quiet Moment
A Quiet Moment

Returning to my car down the side streets of Washington DC, I came across this scene amongst the buildings. There were no people around anywhere and it was very quiet and peaceful. A very different atmosphere than the tourist scene I had been in only a few moments before. It was a very spiritual moment for me.

Peace to all here at BP this Good Friday Eve. Enjoy a quiet moment in this busy world of ours.

Thanks for this quiet moment Susan. I love the symmetry and lines in this - and the bench is very welcoming for weary souls to take a rest and reflect. I'm glad you saw this and shared!!! : ) -mm

I like this a lot, Sue--thought I had commented before but I see now that I hadn't. There's great impact in the design elements here and I love the variety of textures.
In fact, I'm very pleased to see EP's on your last three entries as I thought they were all very strong.
