I love the hanging candles in the second image and how the bottom of the table disappears behind the grass in the first image.

I adore that first image especially...feel as if Jane Austen or one of her characters is about to appear.

i must disagree with henry james. i think the four most beautiful words are "a free summer afternoon". when you're stuck in a cubicle on a summer afternoon, it's not so beautiful. ;)

lovely shots btw.
