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!  And, YES, 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!!!

Never a ship sails out of the bay
But carries my heart as a stowaway.

Roselle Mercier Montgomery, The Stowaway



Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
Rabindranath Tagore



The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea.  Isak Dinesen

Oh wow! Sylvia, those are beautiful! The first photo is one of my favorites that I've seen anywhere in a while. In addition to the obvious boat and beautiful water, the formation of those clouds in the background is stunning!
The one cloud kind of mimics the sailboat!
LOVE IT!

Slvia, amazing reflections!! The ripples of the sea look like millions of diamond and the shapes of the clouds are very interesting! All of your photos are stunning!
Have a great weekend.

I hope you have a great weekend.

Peter said...

That second shot is amazing, thanks for the comment of my sunrise too.

Dorian Susan said...

Sorry about your dismal weather, but I'm enjoying these shots you posted. Love too that last quote. My father believes salt ocean water to cure anything-I'll have to fill him in on the tears and sweat.

The first photo is a work of art, Sylvia, but of course the last one captured my heart - ducks AND turtles! Wow.
Beautiful quotations, too.

The first picture is so evocatoive, and the quote matches it. I like the third picture and the quote the best. Yes, salt water does the trick!

The little sailing craft in the bay carries my heart away, Sylvia!

WHICH SKY FOR YOU?

Which sky for you?
One that is blue?
Or do you prefer
A sky that’s demure?

A sky in grey
Is soft, they say,
And not everyone
Likes the blinding sun.

Perhaps a sky
Through which geese fly
To winter havens
Away from ravens?

A rain-swept sky
That seems to cry?
O quickly choose one
Before day is done!

Great photos Sylvia. I really love the Dinesen quote about salt water.

Reminds me about the problem that teenage boys have with fumes. Perfumes and gasoline fumes.

Take care Sylvia.

Wonderfully gentle pictures and touching quotes...what else does one really need...:)

What a coincidence! Turtles on the log are basking in the sun, and besides birds are accompanying them.

I also like the first photo of blue world with clouds formation, shimmering water, shades of blue and white.

Twenty Toes said...

Very beautiful photos :) I like the second photo best.

Have a wonderful weekend :)

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.
