Nothing like lounging in a park over the weekend to take your mind off the slings and arrows of a long workweek. On any given Saturday or Sunday, weather permitting, you can find tons of families and friends sprawled out on the grass at Loose Park or the front lawn of the Nelson Atkins Museum.

This long Labor Day weekend is the last summer holiday before the weather takes a turn for the fall, a.k.a. the end of picnic weather. That's what drew me to Pitch Flickr pool member Brian Spoonemore's picture "Looking up."

It reminded me of Georges Seurat's pointillist painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte."

Although

Spoonemore's photo lacks the bustle skirts and umbrellas of the elegant

caste, the bright green grass, hats and various poses of people at

leisure are a perfect match.

This photo is just one of many great pics in The Pitch's

Flickr Pool. Share your best news, music, food, arts, nightlife or random photos by joining the group. They may even be featured on Pitch.com.
