PROJECT BLUE #3


I saw this Blue bench tonight when my husband and I attended a "Free Healthy Picnic" at our local park. It was put on by the City of Rocklin. The picnic is part of a nation-wide movement to encourage improving the healthy lifestyle through recreation and good food. We were served grilled chicken, lots of veggies and fruit and water and fruit juices. It was really a lovely evening with a great turnout. We had a chance to meet some of our neighbors and we sat at a table with the mayor of Rocklin. So, I got a great Blue picture and FREE dinner too.
Be sure to check out Anna's daily photos in my Favorites link to see the many others participating in Project Blue.

Nifty blue bench. Hope the dinner was good as well as free, though free goes a long way with me, especially these days. I like the angle you took and the light and shadow. I love shadows.
