We've continued to have some gray and chilly days, some sunny pleasant ones, fog, and flaming sunsets. The temps are mild and it is a beautiful time of the year in Seattle. Some good friends from Portland were in town and took me to our favorite place -- Pikes Market, where I got a new shot of one of my favorite things -- the colorful peppers!  Hope you enjoy a peek at my part of Our World today!  Have a wonderful week!!

In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless
    man is a shame, two is a law firm and three or more is a congress.
John Adams

Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member
    of Congress. But then I repeat myself.
Mark Twain

Just because you do not take an interest in politics
       doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you!
Pericles (430 B.C.)

Talk is cheap...except when Congress does it.

What this country needs are more unemployed politicians.

What a beautiful shot of the misty/foggy day. Feels like Autumn to me, and the color of the leaves, are a sight to see!

Happy Monday/Tuesday!

Your Autumn colours are so beautiful! But my favourite photo is the mist rolling through the street! So mysterious!

aka Penelope said...

Love the misty autumn scene, Sylvia, and the fact that Lindy is on your mailing list.:))

Mary Howell Cromer said...

That bottom image is one gorgeous sky Sylvia and your banner makes me smile and gives a friendly giggle. Take care~

Wow Wow Wow Sylvia! Scrolling all way down!
Your friend from Mumbai is just fabulouse - such creativity and great fun!
Have a good week!

VaishVijay said...

Lovely shots! BTW, why do they tie up peppers like this, in India I've seen people tying up dry chillies n lemon like this and hang in front of the houses/shops to ward off bad luck/evil spirit!

My post on Our World is here.

Life Ramblings said...

wow, a wonderful burst of autumn colours. great captures and wonderful quotes as usual.

Al said...

That's a great selection of photos from your world this week, Sylvia, and a beautiful world it is! I love that market, and I've got a photo of flowers from the spring that I need to post. I hope you have a great week!

Kay L. Davies said...

Lindy and Dick and I are thrilled with your new header, Sylvia. I checked out the header blog, and I notice I missed one (the one with the leaf). I must have been asleep. It's so cute. You and Suranga sure do have a lot of fun with those headers.
Lindy wants me to bookmark this page because it has her name on it. Nothing humble about Lindy.

The third shot is so peaceful and beautiful. Peppers are hung like this in most of the shops in India to ward off the 'evil eye'!

SandyCarlson said...

These are exquisite, Sylvia. Thanks for making my evening.

Hi there - what a range of colours! But I have to say I like the muted colours of the misty street as well - that's such a seasonal look.

Sylvia,
Always, your photos and words are amazing!! Especially I love the third one. In a fog, scenery looks so different; it is covered with quiet tenderness. I am wondering if a bundle of colorful peppers is a charm.
Sylvia, your header makes me smile. Funny and warm!
Best wishes,
keiko
