Unashamedly borrowed from Wikipedia...

The word leisure comes from the Latin (external link) word licere, meaning “to be permitted” or “to be free,” via Old French leisir, and first appeared in the early fourteenth century. The notions of leisure and leisure time are thought to have emerged in Victorian (external link) Britain (external link) in the late nineteenth century, late in the Industrial Revolution (external link). Early factories required workers to perform long shifts, often up to eighteen hours per day, with only Sundays off work. By the 1870s though, more efficient machinery and the emergence of trade unions (external link) resulted in decreases in working hours per day, and allowed industrialists (external link) to give their workers Saturdays as well as Sundays off work.
Affordable and reliable transport in the form of railways (external link) allowed urban workers to travel on their days off, with the first package holidays (external link) to seaside resorts appearing in the 1870s, a trend which spread to industrial nations in Europe (external link) and North America (external link). As workers channeled their wages into leisure activities, the modern entertainment industry (external link) emerged in industrialized nations, catering to entertain workers on their days off. This Victorian concept—the weekend (external link)—heralded the beginning of leisure time as it is known today.

I know what I like to do in my leisure time;). What's your concept of leisure and downtime activity?

Be creative and have fun!

Garden Time and Photoshopping

I do enjoy working in my garden and then playing in Photoshop. This shot shows a little of both.

Thank you all for participating. Sorry it took so long for me to close this out and judge...Got very involved in the Hawk/Canucks game (What a shootout!). This is probably the toughest challenge I've had to judge. There were many interpretations of the topic and they were all very clever. I don't have the time to comment on all as I did last time(Going to pick up the wife and son from the airport). My nod is going to go MSJGD for his version of the topic "leisure". I love the composition, the very relaxing color rendition and I can picture the guy up top holding a cold one and saying "this is the life". The sun framed through the window is the frosting on the cake.
Kendoway's and Lore's images were also a couple that stood out for me.

Congratulations Jean-Guy! And thank you all for participating!:D

Nice shot Jean-Guy! Makes me want to go back on an Alaskan cruise (and I hear prices are great right now).
