Looks like an excellent place for a coffee and a phone conversation.
Richard Trim: This is actually the River Thames Martin ... all be it the upper stretches of it. Just a small stream compared with the Colorado I guess. cheers richard
A lovely scene nicely framed. I'd like to be there. Shall I do some paddling in that nice canoe, or head off into the countryside on the bicycle? I'll decide after coffee...
Richard Trim: Wow Petrushka ... you already sound seriously 'chilled out'. cheers richard

Excellent - what in my mind (sans mobile) is a very english scene. The trees, the boat, the water, the cups and someone relaxing. Not sure how things like this get stuck in the brain, but it happens.
Richard Trim: Interesting and romantic perception of life in Britain Louis ... Now I wonder how close to the truth you are? cheers richard
Wonderful relaxing shot Richard. Did the pigeon taste the coffee? Richard
Richard Trim: Pigeons are scavengers and yet are surprisingly discerning. richard
The ubiquitous mobile! Still at least she reads the Independent! Love the pigeon!
Richard Trim: Looks like three forms of communication then Bill ... if you include pigeon post. ;-) richard
I have a new favourite in the series!
Richard Trim: Couple more to come yet Stephen... so don't completely make up your mind yet. richard

This is a great shot, love the scene and the DOV and pigeon, I hope she did not have to call her friend with the message that the coffee was getting cold.....
Richard Trim: English summers aren't that warm these days so I expect it was. richard

Good shot. With the pigeon nearby !! Very good shot, Richard.
Richard Trim: I'm no real friend of pigeons Fabrice ... but I totally agree it does become part of the composition. cheers richard

Richard Trim: Thanks Tim ... Yes you have a good memory ... it was the same stretch of river as the guy holding the umbrella ... remember?

Love this one Richard. It has such a relaxed feeling and the inquisitive pigeon is a bonus. The overturned coffee cup is a nice detail too.
Richard Trim: Thanks Ingrid ... it is only in the last few months that I have appreciated the value of those added little extras that are in photographs. cheers richard

Lots of good things in this shot richard - the extra cups, the pigeon, the tree that frames the subject, the glimpse of the face, the casual body language, the bikes, the water etc etc. One of your best.
Richard Trim: ... and all there staring me in the face. Thanks for your generous words Mike ... they are much appreciated.richard

Richard Trim: Bloody pigeon ... now becoming a star ;-) cheers mal. richard
Another one, like yesterday, with the interminable mobile phone in play. Good picture though Richard, like the slight tone you have applied.
Richard Trim: Just read you comments for the whole of this series. Many thanks and much appreciated .... Hope you don't mind if I don't reply to them all individually. Cheers richard
