Shot on a hazy afternoon in Santa Barbara. Submitted about an hour before the challenged ended, this is strictly straight out of camera, with only a border added.

Don't laugh, but when I saw this I though he/she had a watering can and was tending to the plants around the lifeguard house... Really quite idyllic! And congrats on a new #2 on your top row, too.

Oh I love this. I have a soft spot for those lifeguard stands - my dad was a lifeguard at Huntington Beach back in the late 30's and early 40's. Some of the same ones are still there. (sigh) Thanks for a bit of nostalgia.

7 - Very nice. I like the silhouettes. Undecided on your red border, especially with your title, but it grows on you and does complement the image, especially the right side of it. Perhaps a little less of the foreground as that seems to compete for center stage too much with the lines and silhouettes and color.

I like the use of the haze here to give the image a soft look. Great warm morning colours, the single figure looks like he's getting ready for the day.

Just read the title, but I choose to stick with my start of the day interpretation :)
