Stockade Picnic: a very favorable impression


It’s a pity that the 2016 Stockade Neighborhood Picnic last Tuesday (July 25) wasn’t better advertised, because the weather, camaraderie, location, and sunlight were just about perfect. I got too caught up in just enjoying companions (and bocce competition) to take my usual plethora of pictures. But, a remarkable number of those I did take had the aura of impressionist paintings (such as Renoir’s Luncheon of the Boat Party), with the pre-sunset light making its magic.
