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 enjoying beautiful weather and I'm loving every minute! It looks as though we have another week before it begins to cool down a bit. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy!

Lovely trio as always Sylvia.

Sivinden said...

Three great and different kinds of reflections! - and you almost had your self portrait captured in the last picture;) Have a nice weekend:)

Hi Sylvia ! I hope I didn't offend you in a way or another, since I did see you coming on my blog for quite sometime. If it is the case, don't hesitate to write me to explain what is wrong : I feel quite bad about it, and I don't know what I did wrong.

But anyway, I'm posting this comment not for me but for you...

Nice set of pictures this week again, Sylvia... I really enjoy your shadows catches, specially the colored glasses ones : I think it is a great inspiration indeed.

Karen said...

Terrific shots! I always love your glass reflections. Have a great weekend.

'Tsuki said...

Ho ! I'm so sorry to learn about this health problem, dear Sylvia... That is quite a coincidence too, cause I was just explain to James that sun is dangerous even for pets...http://somethingsighted.blogspot.com/2011/09/hot-dog-trying-to-stay-cool.html

I feel relieve that you are back on your feet (well back on your hands, on the keyboard, I'd have to say :D )

Web relationships are not always easy, because you feel close to people even if you don't know them or don't know what is really going on with them...

Anyway !

I'm glad to see you back.

simply beautifully captured shots...lovely!

Francisca said...

You give us a creative mix of reflections today, Sylvia. An awesome sunset... keep enjoying your warm weather! I'm hard pressed to limit being a fool to five minutes a day, sad to say. LOL! But best are your beautiful smiles in that magazine in your new header! :-)

Irene said...

Creative shots ... nice reflections!

Dyche Designs said...

More great shots, but I love your sunsets. Beautiful.

Sérgio Pontes said...

I came to wish you a nice weekend too =)

Regards

Leovi said...

Nice pictures, I love all three, but I have a soft spot for the second. I wish you have a great time this weekend.

Woody said...

I am way over my fool quota for the month :-0

I'm enjoying the light beams; we finally had some sun today!

lotusleaf said...

Sylvia, You are a master! The last photo has reflections in reflections!

Mama Zen said...

Sweet shots, Sylvia!

Team G Square said...

Breath taking snaps ...

Al said...

Fun shots, Sylvia - I finally get to see you taking a photo in that last one! It cooled off suddenly last Friday here, with the sharpest thunderstorm of the summer (almost an inch of rain in 15 minutes, and lightning that was frightening, even to me). By the way, that new header is absolutely classic! Have a great weekend!

♥ Braja said...

You and your changing headers!! Love 'em :)

Grayquill said...

Sweet pictures - that not exceeding the fool limit is a tough one for me, each and every day.

Arija said...

What a grand finale that last shot is! Sylvia, with so much sunshine streaming in through your windows, have you ever thought to hang some prisms n our windows and have your room dancing with rainbows?

Thank you for your good wishes, they seem to be working. This last week had no major dramas and things are going quite reasonably at the moment.

I have employed our grandson to cut our lawns and the grass in the entrance yard f the farm. He needs the money for petrol (it's a long drive to the uni. Approx. 80km) and the Prof flatly refuses to bestir himself for anything. This way, everyone is happy.

Indrani said...

Cool header shot. :)
I paused to have a good look.

Enjoyed your reflection shots.

JM said...

I just love the golden sun rays on top. Gorgeous!

cloudbusting2 said...

I was a damn fool for this blog for 3 minutes today. The limit was not exceeded.

Cildemer said...

Wonderful shots as always, Sylvia!
The last one is lovely with you showing a little;o)
Love the quotes too and I'm always trying not to exceed the limit;o)

¤ Have a wonderful week, mon amie ¤ Hugs ¤

Ebie said...

Wow! The light coming through the skies is so powerful!

How beautiful!

Dorian Susan said...

Hi Sylvia...been running like crazy and afraid I've not been by as I should. Hoping "life" settles to a better pace soon. Maybe I should look at the lead in image for a bit; it's so peaceful. I always love your colored glass near the window shots-but I like this bottom one. I kind of wish you'd put more of yourself in, but I like seeing the scene. Have a wonderful day.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Great pics, I especially liked the last with the self portrait.

Sridharan said...

Lovely..as always!

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Nice photos.

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.
