But let's get back on topic, as they say in the boardroom. Let's look at some people caught with a drink in their hand.
Then I thought about the several examples of snaps taken from on top of something, looking down on the scene. That's a popular tourist photographic memento: a panoramic vista from a mountain top which always seems so breath taking in real life but not so much in the resulting photograph.
But first, when I think of slaking a thirst, I remember the day I caught a gathering of waxwings at the birdbath in my back yard on a very hot day. It was a lucky snap.
Moving right along, let's now look at some of those tourist snaps from the family vacation. Let's go up on the mountain...
I just realized: This one was probably shot from on top of (or near it) Umbrella Rock on Lookout Mountain, Tennessee. We looked at some pictures of Umbrella Rock a few weeks back on Sepia Saturday - Sitting On A Rock.
Do these look familiar to you?
Okay, up on the mountain, up an elevator, what's left? Let's get the view from an airplane.
Okay, now head on back to the main floor and the Sepia Saturday home page for an assortment of interpretations of this week's suggestion.

THE KIDS It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.
