Lovely. Wonderfully subtle shadow too.
Thanks a bunch, Alex!
a perfect setting
Thank you DM. This was taken in my favourite park in Zagreb – the one I feature always for “changing seasons” challenge 🙂
nice hue. was it raining? ( a person with umbrella in the distance?)
mine is a bit of a cheat 🙂 – it was anything but quiet on the other side of the arch – “The Brussels Love Bugs Parade gathers together more than 130 VW Beetles for a day packed with activities!”. but it is not that obvious, is it? 🙂
😀 It is not an umbrella, but I can see how you might think that. I guess that branches look wet too. I don’t mind if you are cheating. Photograph is about what is shown, not about what really happened. FYI, my capybara from Thursday’s Special wasn’t really cold 😉
This is a very serene shot, Paula, reflective too. A little sad perhaps? Hope you are feeling a bit better. xx
Yes, it is a little sad and sad music was added to enhance it. Thank you, Tish 🙂 I am on a path of recovery I think….
It feels like raining but so quietly it could also be the moment just after the last raindrops have reached the ground… You definitely have created a very powerful mood (set) with the photo and music, Paula. Beautiful with the hinge of sadness deep down inside…
I thought for a while and decided to go this quiet way: https://esengasvoice.wordpress.com/2015/02/22/black-white-sunday-quiet/
It made me think you are the second person thinking it was raining.. Did you see an umbrella too, like Klara? There isn’t any umbrella in this pic, and though the ground was muddy and wet, there was no sign of rain in the air. It must be my editing and intent to give it this feel of sadness that you have recognised. Your entry for this Sunday has made me go WOW 😀
I noticed the person on the other side (or i had the feeling there was a person) but not umbrella. Just the glow gave the feeling the ground has been recently touched by raindrops. But then undertone for me was sadness…it could be felt in a few ways.
Thank you, Paula, I always enjoy to give it a try with your challenges and see where they take me. 🙂
Tranquillo , un poco triste, ma perfetto per il tema trattato….

I wanted it to be sad. Could you hear the music?
I can imagine….
Luckily I could hear the music: simply great!
Theme from Schindler’s List played on a cello by great talent from Croatia (Luka Sulic). His father comes from Dubrovnik.

The music is very lovely, and wholly adds to the scene. A study in tristesse. I missed it the first time around. Here is my ‘quiet’ with a rather different mood; http://wp.me/pKVAM-1bB
That’s a very intriguing shot, Tish. The covered figure that I can only identify as feminine. Is she a nun? The glow around her makes her look almost holy 🙂 (you are full of surprises – I like that in people)
Yes, the coat does look like a habit seen like this. Sarah, in Goth mode, added a lower tier extension to her black coat – to go with the rather robust boots 🙂
Martens boots? 🙂
Oh yes – those are the ones 🙂
Cool! They are my favourite 😀

I’m glad to surprise you Paula 🙂

As soon as I saw this weeks topic, I knew it had to be a water shot for me. I see you chose water too Paula – it’s a beautiful shot with perfect musical accompaniment 🙂
I’m just back from my US trip, so I’ve chosen a shot from Santa Monica pier. Hope you like it 🙂
I really do Debbie 🙂 Thank you.

Well, here goes for my first Black&White Sunday: http://suejudd.com/2015/02/22/black-white-sunday-quiet/
The most original entry Sue. Thank you again 🙂
Thanks, Paula! I’m looking forward to your next prompt!! 😄
Brill’ I do love black and white and your classical sounds to go with it… 😉
Much appreciated Gerry 🙂
A really peaceful image and music, Paula. 🙂
Idyllic and peacefully… 🙂
🙂 that’s my place
Beautiful image. It really is so peaceful and serene looking

Beautiful, peaceful image, Paula. Looks like a person with an umbrella in the rain in the distance.
It’s not an umbrella 🙂

That is the kind of quiet I can never have to much of and I enjoyed the other entries too.
What a stunningly beautiful photo Paula. You’ve inspired me to see what I can come up with.
I hope you find something Suzanne 🙂 Thank you.
I haven’t as yet – or rather I’ve found ones of lakes but don’t want to copy you 🙂 I’m trying to think up a different approach but the brain’s not co-operating.
I didn’t manage to get away from the water but I did come up with something different http://artifactsandfictions.com/2015/02/25/the-quiet-life/
NICE!!!!! 🙂 🙂 Thank you very much, Suzanne!
The music gives the feel of the image the magic touch. 😉
Oh yes, beautifully played by a Croatian talent.
Even frozen over, it looks like a wonderfully peaceful place.
what’s the name of the piece in this post?
Hello Dhyan, it’s the theme track from Schindler’s list. This particular piece is played on the cello by Luka Sulic.
hey, thank you for this quick reply
and for introducing me.
My pleasure 🙂 You can find all sorts of music here (but only the good kind :D)
Oh,there are some lovely shares here, Paula! I’ll have to go visiting 🙂
Hope you’re still coping. Can’t be much fun. Hugs!
I’m pooped, have just finished working. You can expect an email Wednesday night regarding your post (I hope to schedule it for midnight). You are supposed to.reblog it then (not to publish it from your blog).
Ok, hon. I was going to ask 🙂 Early night sounds a plan xx
BANG POTS AND PANS! MAKE NOISE! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!
You weren’t a quiet one at school, were you? 😀
Actually I was!
Maybe there was some pots banging for Carnival there too 😉
Wonderful quietness in those reflections. “Quiet” is a conceptual theme for a photo. None of my recent photo-subjects qualify. Twins are definitely not quiet, unless they’re asleep or up to mischief.
Sounds like fun 😀

Such a pleasure to enjoy your blissful quiet Paula, thank you!
The ‘quietness’ has been captured well Paula.
🙂 Thanks, buddy
Thank you for sharing such stunning serenity Paula! Love every one of the entries as well 🙂
So serene… Lovely shot…
You should hear the music…. Thank you, Lumar.
