Weekly Photo Challenge: FUN DAYS

12/08/2016

“When you start recognizing that you’re having fun, life can be delightful.” Jane Birkin

Weekly Photo Challenge: FUN DAYS – A Series of Fun Days!

I love this week’s photo challenge on FUN! We all need to make time to kick back, chill out and enjoy the delightful events that swirl around us. As I thought about the exercise, I decided to pull together a collage of fun days or fun moments that have put a smile on my face. Each clip in the collage is a stored memory of a pleasant outing, sighting, or event that I still cherish.
Take for instance, the poster above that showcases 4 plays that were going on in Paris. They include a hilarious play: Couscous aux Lardons which when the poster is translated, tells us about the play which in English is called  – Couscous with Bacon – starring Farid Omri at the Montorgueil Theatre, Paris and also in Lyon (69) in August 2016.  It is about: A wedding, two cultures, two beautiful mothers … This show is their story: Rachid likes Marie – Sophie Marie – Sophie likes Rachid! Life together is already complicated, but when it comes to a mixed couple that becomes crazy. A confrontation of cultures approached without bias, but, however for our greatest pleasure, with derision. That is what I call a fun memory and outing.

 

“You can be childlike without being childish. A child always wants to have fun. Ask yourself, ‘Am I having fun?’ ” Christopher Meloni

Next, look at the Lollipop Ladies and their candy colored outfits. they were spreading their charm and joy at Blogger Bash last year and I couldn’t help but be drawn to their fun, bubbly nature and vibrant costumes. The Naked Cowboy is a Times Square, NY fixture and this shot was taken from a tour bus, as we were given a hilarious ride to enjoy the characters, sights, and sounds of this great city.
The two actors gaming it up with funny faces were entertaining everyone gathered at Columbus Circle for a free frozen banana dessert treat courtesy of Bluths and I laughed so hard that day. The message in a circle next to Snoopy invites you to join him for a Happy dance and I must admit, I did and loved every minute of it… It speaks to what Meloni meant in his quotes above, when he said – be childlike not childish. We must let the little kid inside come out to play, and then we must spread some of that fun at least once a day! For the story behind the remaining photos, do come back for the rest…

How do you define FUN? It doesn’t matter how you choose to describe it as long as you are having your share of daily fun. Did you laugh today? Go make something fun and spread the joy. Come back soon for more.

 

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: FUN What Fun! I love a serious or metaphorical theme as much as the next photographer… but this week, let’s just have some fun. This week’s theme is simple: share a photo of something fun! Let’s all shake our booties, literal or figurative.

 

Positive Motivation Tip: Enjoy each day as if your tank of fun never empties, and then spread same to others.

    I laugh every day. I believe that’s one of the keys to staying youthful. I find fun in a lot of everyday activities that I do.

    I define fun when I’m not thinking 100 and one things at once. Usually when I’m just sitting down watching a movie or playing with the kids after unplugging from all electronics.

    What a fun post. I think it is so important to consciously make the effort to be happy and have fun. Life is too short to waste on bitterness. Find the silver lining!
