A time of love...and a time of peace...Ecclesiastes 3: 8

To read the beginning of the story, if you haven't already, please check back to the previous picture.

I did this grab shot through the car window on the passenger side, as my husband and I were waiting for the street lights to turn, of a bride and groom, standing on the steps of the hotel with their bridal party. The street curved downward from the stop and go lights, where the man in the previous picture was standing with the box of flowers waiting to cross the street.. This is obviously where the flowers ended up at..

I don't know what prompted me to turn my head in that direction, nor do I have the slightest clue who any of these people were ....It was about 40 degrees outside yesterday and some who were in the bridal party including the bride were not dressed too warmly.. I think what surprises me the most is that I was able to capture all of this within one minute and piece the story together before the stop and go lights turned.

    I know what you mean Michele, but I meant the happy ending to the story before the lights
    turned and I am so glad I had the opportunity to see where the flowers ended up at in this
    scenario...After thinking about it, however I changed the title and added to a new beginning.

    The photo deserved to be rectified, the two beautiful yellow-spotted flowers, in contrast to the brick
