6:30 AM: took my daily picture of the sky over 5th Ave. Turned on the computer, read among other things: DPC rush challenge. Had to go to do my taxes at 1PM. Took a quick picture before leaving (my tax return solidly in my mind), plopped the sky in the background. Errands, work, etc.
Got chocolates on my way back for husband, son and daughter in law, reduced photo. Dinner was ready: risotto with funghi porcini, arugula salad, champagne. Call it a day.

I thank to all who sent me a word. Yes Susan, I do think that I tried to do too much. Before adding the sky the shadow was the little confused monkeys was more prominent. The little heart that I added bothers me a bit though but if Michelle loved it I am happy.
But I stand behind the rest!
Does not want to explain the image since if the idea is not clear I failed some of my viewers and words are a bit too late and superfluous.

Don, Having you for an audience is a joy! Thank you!

There's something about this that is weird and yet really cute at the same time. I do like that shadow with the heart in the background.

Surreal, quirky, odd.

think you tried to do too much, the two separate images compete with each other. Good try though.

Love the light here, but unfortunately I don't quite 'get' this image.
