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're still playing hide and seek with the sun these days and I am still looking forward to having something to chase besides old photos soon!!!

Beautiful! I particularly like the second one.

Karen said...

Terrific shots. Of course I love the duck one! The last one really sets a mood and goes with the quote excellently. Have a great weekend.

The reflection of the sun is stunning, but the last one is really awsome : I just love this red shadow on the white web... The composition, with the glasses is really nice too.

I love the Barrymore quote and the golden tones in the photo that it accompanies.

Pat Tillett said...

BEAUTIFUL photos Sylvia! Each one of them! I can't pick between them for my favorite...

Clytie said...

Stunning photos. I love them all, but something about that last photo fills my heart and soul.

Gine said...

La première a ma préférence, comme un Etang au Nymphéas de Monnet !

James said...

The top one is like a painting, the middle one is stunning and I love the lighting and mood in the bottom photo. Bravo!

Have a great weekend!

Rajesh said...

Very lovely reflections. I love the second shot.

Woody said...

I like the big ship about the cut through the reflection. We had some rain and we're expecting mega-windy conditions. Hopefully we will get some sun soon, I need to take some photos!

Dianne said...

the colors in the water surrounding the sweet ducks are so beautiful
like a wonderful painting

Excellent reflections. The greens on the water seem an impressionist painting. In the second highlights romantically silhouetted trees. In the third beautiful shades of red on the glasses.

Sridharan said...

Lovely..!

Cildemer said...

Great reflections. The first one is my favourite. The hues of green and blue are so beautiful!
I agree with James! It looks like a painting;o)

Have a happy weekend, Sylvia****

Inger-M said...

All three are great, but the sunlight in the second one is fabulous!

George said...

I sure am glad that you have these wonderful 'old' photos to go through and to share with us. I really like the red reflection on the table with the glasses. That is truly a work of art.

Dani said...

Beautiful, beautiful. And I love the quotes.

Happy weekend.

Nature Rambles said...

Hi Sylvia, I get so inspired by your photos! All of them are so beautiful. Love the duck...and the last photo makes one think about the possibilities of reflections without water!

namaki said...

Your first picture could be a painting by Monet; the impressionist painter ! It's beautiful !

Greyscale Territory said...

Such pretty reflections! Especially love the glow of light on the water in the second photo!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Great photos. I like the one with the red glass the bestest. I love the quote about old age, dreams, and regrets. I hope that I never grow old.

Have a great weekend Sylvia.

magiceye said...

a duck in a lake under willow trees. This photo may well be taken in my Western Spring's lake.

Has spring sprung?

I like the theme of the importance of dreams, and your photos go along with that beautifully.

stardust said...

The surface of the water looks like delicate silk crepe. Beautiful captures!

Team G Square said...

just magnificent

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

I agree with namaki... that your first photo resembles a Monet painting... Just beautiful reflections.

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend, my dear!

Bises,

Evelyn said...

Very good quotes :).

Happy Weekend Sylvia.

Arti said...

Love the John Barrymore quote... Wonderful, the pics are lovely too...
Have a wonderful day:-)

JM said...

The top shot could be a painting from one of the French impressionist artists. Beautiful, Sylvia!

Francisca said...

I sing because it's the stuff of life. And a wonderful pond with duck and reflections to go with a good quote. Enjoy your weekend, Sylvia!

Reader Wil said...

This reflection is perfect and very gorgeous! It creates an atmosphere of peace.
Dear Sylvia!
Please don't apologize for not visiting my blog, for that is not true. You are always there encouraging us all to continue blogging. You have always a kind word for everybody.
New Zealand is daily in my thoughts I hope that our blogging friend and her family is safe. My daughter lives in Australia and there they have to face all kind of other natural disasters like the recent flood and the cyclones. The weather all over the whole world is unbalanced.

Like all of your reflections. The first is so impressionistic. Nice work.

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.
