Weekend Reflections

Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. Click on the web address under the blog title and sign up to play with us!  We had the same come-and-go sun this week and none of it enough or for long enough to be able to catch any reflections! SO --- yeah, last week's actions all over again. Hope you all have a lovely weekend with SUN!

There is a road from the eye to heart that does not go through the intellect.  G. K. Chesterton

The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives. 
  Albert Einstein

No eyes that have seen beauty ever lose their sight.  Jean Toomer

Wow! You have some amazing photos of reflections! I haven't even gone through my archives yet to find a photo to contribute! You are on the ball!

The first one is so beautiful... but I'm biased : I love sunsets... The second one is very refreshing ; I'd like summer to come so badly now, since I'm fed up with winter (not my cat, hein... The season, of course). The last one is simply terrific : I enjoy so much what we call in franch those "vieux gréments"...

James said...

The reflections are beautiful and I love those old ships!
Have a great weekend Sylvia!

George said...

I really like all these reflection pictures. The blue in the second one is amazing, and the picture of the tall ships is a work of art.
I hope you have a great weekend.

Francisca said...

Three very different reflections, all beautiful, Sylvia. And maybe Albert has the key to why we are so keen on these memes... it toggles the child in us. I like that thought.

Ebie said...

I find peace and tranquility on the first two shots! How lovely the reflections are!

I would love to see those tall ships and you have reflected them perfectly!

Bonjour dear Sylvia,
I think I prefer the first one, mainly because I miss beautiful sunsets like this one and In fact, I NEED some sunshine...I hate this weather here.Oh Okay, I agree...sorry for this bad mood today, it's all about the cold rain!
BUT, I'm also in love for the last shot.I love ships and this picture is a beautiful postcard,reminds me paintings!Very well done!
As you said, we all want a sunny weekend.I will be very positive!
Thanks for this lovely post,
hugs

Sylvia, your photos are beautiful, and I find your quotes this week equally true and wonderful. Thank you for the inspiration, visually and literally.

I like those sail boats in the first shot, that looks like a lot of fun!

Beautiful images. How lovely it would be to go for a sail in one of those ships on a warm summer afternoon.

Lovely series of images Sylvia. Can't choose a favorite -- I like all of them.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Saigon was spared much of the turmoil in 1966.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Lovely all Sylvia -- the second from the last looks as if I could have taken it here in Florida (except you know it's a better picture than I'd take).

lotusleaf said...

Good Morning, Sylvia! Your photographs are so vivid. The last one with the boats is my favourite! I hope you have a good weekend.

Jan n Jer said...

Judy Sheldon-Walker said...

Lovely, lovely reflections and so are the quotations. They are very calming.

Dimple said...

I love the last one!
Blessings!

Jack said...

My favorite is the middle one. I always look at the land; you remind me to look at the water.

RuneE said...

It is a beautiful specimen of a sailing vessel you have caught here. I wish I could have seen her! Thank you for sharing :-)

Gattina said...

You must have done serious researches to find blue sky, lol ! Love the sailing ship, I wished I could sail maybe not around the world but just a bit.

Eden said...

Beautiful reflection shots and my favourite is the first one.

All the best, Boonie

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Great photos Sylvia. I especially like the one with the sailing ships. I don't know what it is but I've always liked sailing ships (looking at them, I mean.)

Great quotes also, I especially like the Chesterton quote. I think the best photos, paintings, and images are the one that go right to the heart.

Take care Sylvia, from snowbound Oklahoma.

Gorgeous and excellent reflections!
I love the second one especially.
The border between the real and the fantasy
disappears.
Thank you for your magnificent photos!
Have a nice weekend!

Pat said...

I love the sunset photo and the gorgeous water reflection! And I love G. K. Chesterton! Hope you are having an enjoyable weekend, Sylvia!

Rekha said...

The dipping Sun
rippling trees
or reflections in water?
white sails multiplied
floating near the harbour
what joy that brings...
Happy Weekend

I do love each and every image and quote! Thank you.

Nature Rambles said...

All your pictures are stunning! And the quote by Einstein is so wonderfully true.

What Can I Say?
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.
