Sweet relief

Posted by
Mhelene (Villiers-sur-Marne, France) on 29 August 2012 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

After working day or at home, it is a sweet relief to meet friends in the evening to play cards or dominoes .

I submit this photo for the current theme on AM3 "Sweet Relief "

Après une journée de travail ou à la maison, c'est un doux soulagement de retrouver les amis le soir pour une partie de dominos

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

A gathering of friends is always enjoyable. I do not know about the theme Sweet Relief. Where did you find out about this?

29 Aug 2012 8:03pm

@ruthiebear: Thank you Ruthiebear .I found it in the last newsletter from Aminus3 of August :"August Community Photography Theme Sweet Relief Life is a balancing act between two poles. Like negative space and positive space in photography, one (or the lack of one) defines the other. Sometimes there is a moment, when the stress or tension lifts, and we find ourselves taking a soothing breath of deep gratitude. The Aminus3 community theme this month is to capture that moment, that expression of sweet relief. Some possible ideas A stretch after a good workout, a cool swimming pool on a hot day, the relief of sending the kids back to school after summer holiday, springtime after a cold winter - let's see your interpretations. Deadline for submitting an image is Saturday September 1. Thanks also to all who participated in last month's theme, Determination.
