Julia is a good friend of my wife. She lives here at Residencial El Bosque, and daily joins my wife to walk around the neighborhood at 04:30 a.m. (yep, that’s right, in the morning), to keep their body in shape. They usually walk about an hour a day. That’s pretty good, considering that my wife is 66 and Julia is approximately 84—she’s tightlipped about her age, as most women do.
Yesterday, as a kind gesture of friendship, she gave my wife a pair of ceramic ornaments. They are one of the most beautiful pieces of ceramic I’ve seen in a long time. At the bottom they have a little metallic plate that reads, “Santini, Italy style.” We are proudly exhibiting them on a small table in our living room for all visitors to see. When Diana visits us, she will enjoy her donation, sparkling in our living room as an expression of friendship.
While sitting in the living room, taking a break from the computer, I took a closer look at the ornaments, and thought they would be excellent subjects to photograph. In less time than it takes to blink an eye, both pieces of the brightly colored ornaments had been captured by my ole Canon PowerShot A720 IS.
These are the lovely presents. Here we go.
