Paul and Teresa, thank you so much for your kind comments! And Paul, I actually had that as a title and then wasn't sure so decided to ask for some suggestions! Great minds think alike, they say! :D And a happy New Year to you both! #6975217

Awesome shot, Carol! Great use of full frame, nice colors and textures, too- what a fun find :) #6975331

Lauren P. Krajenta January 03, 2009

Very nice shot...How about the title "Siesta Time"...the colors look of mexican heritage and being hung on the wall shows whomever taking a break.
Just a suggestion..lol I like the colors and the texture of the shot! #6975380

A P January 03, 2009

I'll be diplomatic..I like both "Hanging Around" and "Siesta Time" as I can never help out in that area. But I do like the lines, textures and effect of your capture, Carol. #6978097

Colleen Farrell January 13, 2009

Hanging Around is my vote. Great capture, Carol--I love all the lines, shapes, colors and texture. I think this will be a winner for you! #7024757

Carol Teal January 15, 2009

Thank you everyone for your kind comments and for your help with the title. Lauren, I like Siesta Time too but I think I will go with popular vote (plus I had actually thought of this one from the start but just wasn't sure) and call it Hanging Around.

And thanks for the vote of confidence Colleen. I will definitly cross my fingers! #7033052
