The figure shows a great atmosphere. Rocking chairs highlight the fact that haste is not, but it's time to enjoy.

Beautiful ornate detail in the design of the porch's posts making it very quaint!! A very calm place to "sit a spell." A very nice contribution for your community's fundraiser. I yearn to be outdoors.

Elaine Hancock from Rockville, United States

Gorgeous light and color. I love porches with rocking chairs. This is such an inviting image! Sometimes when I drive out into rural Maryland, the houses in the old towns are right on the street. People sit out on their porches and while I drive through the town I love to wave and they wave back! I think that this was a perfect picture for the donation.

18 Apr 2013 12:23am

@Elaine Hancock: People here wave to passersby too. We get a lot of walkers on our street and many stop to chat. ALthough I do not have a porch, we have a set of adirondack chairs on the lawn which we sit on and visit.

Lydia.Dd from Paris, France

Beautiful place to have a rest in the sun ! I like this picture .

While it could be anywhere, this evokes the mood of a country front porch.

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

I accept the invitation, and would love to "sit a spell" and visit.

Michael Rawluk from Williams Lake, BC, Canada

I hope you saved the rocking chair for me to sit in.

18 Apr 2013 4:56am

@Michael Rawluk: My porch is not big enough, but we do have adirondack chairs for visiting on our lawn overlooking the river.

I really like sense of anticipation in the photo as if the chairs were waiting to be rocked.
