Quiet Contemplation

Click to enlarge to better see him
One day when photographing flowers at the Botanical Gardens, I turned around and saw this gentleman across the way sitting in the sun, his Tim Horton's cup beside him.
He seemed lost in quiet contemplation.
The letter is 'Q' this week at Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday.
If you're a gardener, I hope you'll read about a fun giveaway here.
