Palaver: idle talk; also, to talk idly


Had an idea for today, but was I swept away by movies, so here's another from vacation.

These were our guides on the Isle of Mull, John and Kevin (L to R). I spoke more with John, who was very talented at painting watercolors in miniature while waiting for us crazy photographers to wrap up at a location. He had his own travel watercolor kit that was the coolest thing I'd ever seen. I asked if he would paint one to give away, and a few weeks ago I received in the mail my own small watercolor from him. It made me cry. He is the sweetest man.

In this shot I was resting in the van talking with John, and I raised my camera to take a picture while he was leaning--and he immediately stood up straight and posed. I laughed and lowered my camera, asking to lean in again as that was the picture I was trying to get. He happily obliged. :) I love this picture because it brings back in a bright swoosh the feel and memory of the place, and the love I had for the company and for being there.
