Great batalay 2009-03-25 2:54

Hello Rikk,

This is a genuinely engaging shot, with psychological and social content. Given a chance to 'soak up the sun' these people have positioned themselves almost equidistantly, except of course where they have arrived in pairs. The slope of the hillock seems to be just right for lying out in comfort. Spring, at least on the calendar, has arrived. Many years ago in Washington, DC there used to be a similar patch of land, on a slope, that attracted lunch time workers to make picnics and catch the rays of the sun, "P-street beach" it was called.

Warm regards,

Hello Rikk,

I am happy to hear from a professional sociologist a confirmation of my remark. Take a look at Nivaldo's Just like humans, which I critiqued right after I saw your image. If you have time, look at the critique.

Warm regards,
