Theme Day - Yellow

Today started gray and rainy, but quickly changed for the better. While enjoying the morning paper and coffee, a sudden rush of sunshine came pouring through the windows and flooded the bookcase wall. A tattered, yellow fabric rose that our granddaughter had left atop a shelf caught the sunlight and my eye as well. So there it was then, a better photo for theme day than I had prepared. Nice when serendipity peeks in the window.

The City Daily Photo blogging community is posting its theme of yellow from cities around the world.

Serendipity is the photographer's best friend. It was fortunate sunlight that gave me my yellow. This is a very delicate delightful image.

Flower and book, Nature and Culture. Two elements for a nice photo.

Synchonicity in action. It seems to always happen when you least expect it. Lovely photo. I like the lighting.
