Picture Perfect : Zest : Zest for Life

Zest for Life.

Whenever I hear these two old planes pass above me, I look towards the sky and watch the pilots putting them through their little rolling, banking, or tandem flight paces. The pilots give a great example of their Zest for Life when flying these little beauties in the skys above my home.

The photo was taken at sunset on the beach, using my Canon IXUS 70 with the zoom at max and set on auto. I have named it, framed it and downsized it only.  Enjoy my take on Zest.

  13. Excellent shot dear Milli! I live on an old airport and love shooting the biplanes and planes of day gone by. You are so right in that they have such a zest for life. http://rumbledoll.multiply.com/journal/item/32/ZESTFUL_Vortice_of_Rome_-_FF_-_71708 P.S. I was almost named Milli after my aunt... but my aunt decided on another name for me instead. Love my aunt Milli

  54. I am thrilled to have another of my photos chosen in the top ten and that in itself gives me much enthusiasm and added enjoyment in the pursuit and capture of a great photo. This particular photo was such a fortunate capture on a balmy evening at the beach in the beginning of this year. To those wonderful friends of Picture Perfect and to the diligent organisers of these high spirited Challenges I want to Thank You All. I will be back next week looking forward to another challenge and looking in awe at the wonderful photos and creativity shown by all who enter. Now Come fly with Me into that wonderful sunset... WITH ZEST.
