Rest in Peace. Thank you for the beauty and the joy!
Our constitution protects aliens, drunks and U. S. Senators.  Will Rogers

If you look really closely at this first shot you'll see some very little black dots -- not any junk on my lens, just a lot of crows looking for fun!!










There ought to be one day -- just one -- when there is open season on senators!  Will Rogers 







All Congresses and Parliaments have a kindly feeling for idiots, and a compassion for them, on account of personal experience and heredity.

I think that Will Rogers was on to something - hah!

Sorry to hear about the passing of Klaus. He made many contributions in his too-short life. Prayers for his friends and families.

Klaus will live on in the memories of so many.

Ahh, you are kind of hard on our lawmakers today Sylvia. They certainly deserve it and worse. Nice to hear though that they hadn't changed much since the days of Will Rogers and Mark Twain.

Love your header and your skies are awesome! Your Twain quotes are on the mark. But remember we do get open season on our congress every other year. A lot of people missed the mark last year.

These are such radiant and beautiful skies Sylvia. Great memorial post.

Great photos of the sky. Love the crows.
Fitting quotes by Twain and Rogers. They must've somehow known about today's Congress in advance!

I'm sure Klaus Peter is smiling, looking at how he is remembered and knowing his legacy lives on. Wonderful shots, Sylvia! And thanks for letting us know the black specks are birds...I wouldn't have noticed...Have a good weekend!

Genie said...

Not only are your photos beautiful this week, your quotes are superb. You have to be the “BESTEST” at coming up with the quotations. I will never be able to come close to you and the ones you post. Like the crows...there were a bunch of them. Today on the way home from school I saw 2 different flocks of birds doing all kinds of contortions in the air. Sadly I had to drive so could not shoot them. genie

Hey Sylvia, me again.

I'm such a clod. I totally missed your line about Klaus Peter when I first read your post. I didn't know him personally or anything about him but I really enjoyed his photography.

Such a talent. I'm sure that he was a great guy also.

Klaus will be greatly missed, Sylvia. Although my contact with him was limited to some back-and-forth commenting, he was always very kind, supportive and helpful. I wish we had been able to meet him, but we haven't been to Florida since I started blogging.

Hi, don't know why I overlooked the line that announced Peter Klaus's passing. Hard to believe. His photos are all so stunning and I thought more would come from him. Rest in Peace, Klaus. And a apology to Sylvia.
