ABC Wednesday "X" is for....

I was stumped for an X-word for my maritime photo, so I Googled "words beginning with X," and on http://phrontistery.info/x.html I found:


--xebec, a small three-masted pirate ship;
--xeme, a fork-tailed gull;
--xanthometer , an instrument for measuring color of sea or lake water. (Not river water, apparently.)

None of these are in my photo, so I'll just call it "X is for tables with legs like X-es."

Happy New Year!

Very clever. The boat below the X-shaped chairs adds a lot of visual interest. Excellent composition. Best wishes for a happy 2009.

Very clever 'X' indeed. It's always a hard one.
Wishing you and your children all the best in the New Year. You are in my thoughts.

X is one of those letters that have no meaning or nearly so, but the medicine I have to inhale and inhaled every four hours while in the hospital is Xopenex an inhalation solution. I think your photo shows some x's too.

I hope to see you in 2009. Let's forget 2008 like we forgot 2007 and 2006. Things should be much better in politics and hopefully the environment will be treated with more respect, care and tolerance. Happy New Year.

As you know I love discovering new words so this is a gift. That's a very peaceful image too.

I love the misty background and tack sharp foreground, all the horizontal lines and that funky rhythm the alternating tables and chairs create. The white, black, red, and gray, and that chocolately water all work for me, too.
