#249 beating the Monday blues

249/365 beating the Monday blues, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

I was really happy about today’s Daily Shoot assignment to get me out cycling, even with a grey, overcast sky.

Welcome the new week (and holiday in the US) by making a bright cheery photo outdoors and posting it today.

I went looking for some vivid colours to cheer me up! I am not a great fan of Mondays in general, and I really needed some brightness after the totally bland Sunday I spent yesterday.

I love autumn colours, and every day now, there seem to be more of them around. One side of this giant maple is already quite spectacular. Looking at it, makes me hear some Vivaldi playing in the background, and see tiny Disney fairies flying about with their magic brushes to add more strokes of red, orange and yellow here and there.

The cycling helped – I gathered a lot of energy, and feel good and optimistic about the week ahead now.

    Loved your description and recipe for chasing away the blues. Our trees are not quite as colourful yet – but they are starting.

    Disney’s Fantasia is one of my all-time favourite animations. I look forward to seeing autumn in Montreal, Susan, through your photos.
