Who's going to yield?

As the saying goes, "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade." For many days now, on and off but mostly on, we've been handed rain, so of course I photographed snails! (No, they did not end up on my plate.) I brought these two guys/girls (I think snails are hemaphrodites) up to my balcony for a photo. I placed them on the railing facing each other, and they 'argued' a bit about who would yield. One just slid down the side of the railing and let the other pass, how civil.

Sometimes the snails are civilised then us.. here in Belgrade.

"Comme nos voix ba da ba da da da da da da
Chantent tout bas ba da ba da da da da da da
Nos cœurs y voient ba da ba da da da da da da
Comme une chance comme un espoir
Comme nos voix ba da ba da da da da da da
Nos cœurs y croient ba da ba da da da da da da
Encore une fois ba da ba da da da da da da
Tout recommence, la vie repart

Combien de joies
Bien des drames
Et voilà !
C'est une longue histoire
Un homme
Une femme
Ont forgé la trame du hasard."

Superbe photo d'amour

oh I love this. Especially in sepia, which is warmer than b/w.

I'm shocked by your weather. Argh!

Too cool for words! I love it.

....and both ultimately wound up in a pool of melted garlic butter, even if not on YOUR plate!

Cool shot, Bibi!

Rebecca said...

Un petit bout de salade au gagnant et au perdant?

WE used to put numbers on their back when we were kids and make races holding a piece of lettuce in front of their nose!!!
