Lens-artist’s Photo Challenge #57: Taking a break

Tina has asked us to find some images that illustrate taking a break.

Here are a few ways to unwind, some I may use myself, some that I have seen others enjoy:

A short break for coffee (and I was enjoying coffee as I took this image):

I find time spent in a garden is a great way of taking a break from everyday life, however short :

This group of friends were enjoying a break playing a game of cards:

A break by the beach in the evening light:


I love to see people enjoying a break painting a scene – this man was certainly engrossed:

  1. A good selection, Sue. I always like to find a nice bench when I’m out and about. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Enjoyed them all Sue. The light on your beach shot is superb and I really liked your composition on the garden stroll. Well done!

  3. Amy

    Wonderful photo selection for this theme, Sue. To the beach, playing games…. ways to relax. 🙂

  4. I am always happy to find benches right when I am wanting to sit down. I wonder who figured out how far apart to space them.

  5. A good mix, Sue, and I have made notes on how to take a break 🙂 I know you take it a little easier these days, but you’re still not much better at resting than I am

  6. I love finding artists painting in the open air.

  7. I love the beach shot too, and the gentleman painting 😆

  8. Hi, Sue. I share many of your “methods” for taking a break. Your beach shot is a stunner! Beautiful light and composition.

  9. Excellent selection and variety.
