That's My World!


That's My World is hosted each week by Klaus and the My World team, Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and me. Click on the icon and share your world with others from all over Our World! So! How is your world this week? Have you taken time to see the beauty there? What is it about your world that makes you smile or laugh or feel grateful for? You can click on the photos to embiggen and get a better look!

It's hard to believe that fall is on our doorstep already! Where did the summer go??? We've had such a very mild summer here in Seattle and we had a very mild winter last year, so I'm curious to see what we'll have this year. But whatever, there's no doubt there will always be beauty to photograph -- sometimes we just have to look a little bit harder. I didn't have to look harder this week however! Enjoy your week in your world!

Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile. - William Cullen Bryant

Bella la rosa bianca :-))
Buona giornata.

Autumn might be on your doorstep, but it's still waaaay down the block from mine. But that shouldn't surprise anyone. Not around here anyway.

Carver said...

Beautiful sequence of shots. The one with the sailboats makes me wish I was sailing there right now. I am ready for fall. I can hardly wait for October and November which is fall here.

Rajesh said...

Fabulous collection of shots, very scenic. The colors of the sky are pleasing.

Rob Inukshuk said...

Some beautiful pics for sure, but I'm in denial - let there be summer...and until I see the leaves changing, I'm not ready to accept the change of season is close.

Random Treasures said...

Beautiful colors of the sky. It's great world we live in.

Your photos inspire serenity, Sylvia. Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love the colours, the quieter beaches and the cloud-filled skies where orange sunsets peek through.

Beautiful scenes Sylvia but that last photo is just awesome. Autumn is certainly on its way here in Scotland. Thanks for your visit today :) Rosie, CoI

EG Wow said...

Beautiful pictures again. I love the last rose of summer. Gorgeous photo.

Starnitesky said...

That first photo is stunning, I hope that is not the last rose of summer. Autumn is good but cold winter follows.

Enjoy your week.

Summers last full moon sending its light to make bright this entry of yours. Amazing moon picture. Please have you all a good Tuesday.

Arija said...

Your world is filled with beauty. What a view!
the perfect white rose reminds me of 'Beauty and the Beast' , do you remember the old B&W French version with Jean Marais? I saw it when I was about 19 and still am vividly under its spell.

Thank you for your friendship and your concern. Things are looking up a little.

Enjoy what is left of your summer with its pleasant temperatures.

Carol said...

Beautiful! I love the sailboats. The last shot is spectacular. Your weather in Seattle is lovely, I wish for a mild winter....

SandyCarlson said...

Beautiful, Sylvia. I especially love the rose. I swear I can smell it from here.

Nessa said...

That rose is like a ball gown.

lotusleaf said...

Your quotes and pictures are always wonderful.

Al said...

Great photos as always, Sylvia. I especially love the first one, with the sun reflecting off the water and the sailboats to complete the scene.

Shey said...

It didn't feel like summer last week in my world but I agree that there's always beauty to be photographed whatever season it may be.

Fantastic photos & quotes as always. Joy certainly should be unconfined. :)

Kay said...

That white rose is particularly lovely. I do so love Mark Twain. I laughed when I read about not getting enough compliments. How funny!

Ebie said...

What a beautiful place to be! The peaceful waters and glorious skies is an opportune time to go sailing!

We are just feeling the summer heat and I envy your cool world!

George said...

Have a nice day!

Gattina said...

You are really surrounded by a beautiful world ! Our summer was very short this year. Almost no spring then a heat wave and the whole August was cold and rainy ! It's a miracle that I don't have flippers yet !
I better don't think about autumn, I hate it !

alicesg said...

NatureFootstep said...

we had a hard winter last time so we hope for a mild one. But not yet. First we want a good fall.

Kay L. Davies said...

I was so sure I had commented on your Tuesday blog, because I remember thinking wise things about Mark Twain. But I was wrong, which happens to me a lot lately.
Loved your photos, and the Twain quotes. My favorite of his, though: "When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it happened or not."

Lew said...

A beautiful rose and super sunsets! What more do we need for a beautiful world?

allhorsestuff said...

Love your beautiful inspirations! Oh...sigh of contentment~

I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
