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!

The second pic was taken from a tour bus I was on a few weeks back and if you look closely you can see the reflection of the bus driver's hands on the wheel. Looks like he's driving through the water! I had no idea I had caught these reflections until I started going through some photos yesterday. I thought it was kind of cool!  Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! 
Come forth into the light of things; Let nature be your Teacher.

Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.
Danny Kaye
 
What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.
Joseph Addison
Life is nothing without friendship.

Would love to get your feedback on my blog when you get the chance.. and had a look at your collabaration blog too - stick figures and photos - just wonderful..sounds like something I can suggest to my kid's elementary school Art Docents (I am one of them too!)

I like the view out the window, it has some great reflections.

Rebecca said...

THe rays coming from the clouds are beautiful.

seva said...

Bonitas y coloridas imagenes sobre todo la primera toma con esos rayos que parecen acariciar el agua, como pequeña sugerencia pero de facil solucion: si enderezas el horizonte presumiras de una bella postal, un saludo desde Reinosa.

Beautiful! That bus driver was good taking you right out there into the water (;>)) It really does look like that. I hope you always get a window-seat on the bus!

You take the most beautiful sun downs....this is no exception. My fave is the 2nd shot, with just a hint of reflection. Kind of mysterious.
Have a great weekend Sylvia.

Beautiful photos as always, Sylvia - that first one in particular is stunning! Socks and I are planning on a hike tomorrow to see if there is any color left in the hills, and he says he wishes Sam could come with him! Anyway, have a great weekend and give Sam some nice attention from us.

I'm sure your images are wonderful but I can't see them for some reason. I see a triangle with an exclamation point inside instead. I tried two different browsers with the same result. Thanks for dropping by my place.

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.
