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! 
Considering the incredible, searing heat across most of the country these days!  I can assure you that I'm grateful to live in the northwest where we are enjoying one of the coolest summers on record here!!! Amazing and somewhat disturbing! What's next????  I haven't gotten out a lot this week, but here are some shots and words for the day! Wishing you all a beautiful weekend!
Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.

Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.

Sylvia, your picture with the lace curtain and reflections on the table is my very favorite of your lovely pictures.

In fact, tomorrow my post on my "one thousand gifts" one of my pictures is very similar, as I took it at Santa Barbara at a friends home.

Have a great weekend.

Wow you sunset picture is awesome ! It looks just as if the sun had fallen in the sea... Gorgeous ! I really enjoy the one with the blue gobelet too : the composition between light and shadow give such a mysterious touch to the picture...

Lindy MacDuff said...

Gorgeous sunset; really love the sunlight through the lace curtains and blue goblet!

I love all your photos, but the Danny Kaye quote really struck a chord with me. Have a great weekend, Sylvia.

Francisca said...

Sylvia, I am shocked! You had a party and did not invite me?!? LOL. Again cool reflections and quotes. That blue glass sure gives off a nice blue glow.

Ditto on being thankful for Pacific Northwest weather (and for being here -- and for wondering about as well)..... Beautiful pictures and reflections, as always in both senses of the word.

EG Wow said...

Gotta love Danny Kaye's creative mind. :) I always love your colourful glass and reflections.

helenmac said...

Oscar Wilde always makes me chuckle and nod my head in agreement. And the photos are glorious! I love blue and immediately admired the blue goblet with its wonderful shadows.
Send us your cool weather anytime! Have a wonderful weekend!

Dorian Susan said...

You always have the most beautiful sunset photos. I also love the lacey curtains with blue glass. Happy weekend Sylvia.

Thom said...

I tell you that first one is just breathtaking. It looks like it is speaking too you. Just exquisite. I hope you are well my friend. Have a wonderful weekend.

Margie's Musings said...

Great reflections. My favorite is "no one is promised a tomorrow."

Mama Zen said...

The shadow of the lace is just gorgeous!

awarewriter said...

You make it so hard to choose a favorite Sylvia. I like all three but the last one is special.

nonizamboni said...

Sylvia--your skies for SWFriday were amazing!
And your reflections stopped me in my tracks, especially the last.
happy weekend!

Dianne said...

love the blue lacy shadows

Al said...

Beautiful, refreshing shots, Sylvia. We're lucky with the weather at our house - because of our altitude we've only hit 90 twice this summer, and quite likely won't again, so I can't complain. Socks gives Sam a nose-nuzzle!

missing moments said...

Beautiful Sylvia ... and oh my gosh ... Danny Kaye ... haven't thought about him in years!

Gemma Wiseman said...

A beautiful variety of photos all with magical lighting! Love the shadow detail and blue glow in the last photo!

Genie said...

I was out in the 103 degree weather today shooting the ducks at Lake Robertson. Can’t wait to clean up the photos and post them. They are my first ducks ever so am a happy camper. Your series is wonderful. Have a happy weekend. My son called from Baimbridge where they have just moved to a gorgeous larger home with a barn and a pond and gorgeous landscaping. He said he is getting us out there soon to see it. Can’t wait to get back out there. Hugs, Genie

What Can I Say?

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.
