Love that first image...the water so blue. I always enjoy your glass images from the sun in the window. Have a great weekend Sylvia. Did you go see and taste that chocolate yet?

Perfect quotations to reflect on. Sorry, I live with an 8th grader so I revert to 8th grade humor every now and then.

Have a great day Sylvia.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Always beautiful scenes! Soul food! And love the glowing shadow/reflection of the glass! Magical!

Valerie said...

Extraordinarily vibrant colours in that first shot especially Sylvia, and the green glass is stunning. Have a great weekend.

Hi Sylvia, Lovely reflections and quotes.. especially the second one.
I was wondering why your wine glass and bottle are empty and does that make me wise or just plain nosey?

Have a rip roaring weekend my friend.

Warm hugs,
Pam i am ;)

Lovely shots and quotes, Sylvia. I particularly liked the first one!

Mama Zen said...

I always love your colored glass shots!

Very nice reflections. It's interesting how water can take on different colors. I like the green here. Reminds me of summer. :)

Such vibrant colours in the reflections!

George said...

The reflections in this first photo, are stunning. Thanks for a wonderful sequence of reflections. I hope you have a great weekend.

Al said...

Wonderful reflective shots and quotes, as usual, Sylvia. I hope you and Sam have a great weekend - I could certainly use a restful one and maybe I can finally kick this cold. But somehow I think Socks will drag me for a walk sometime tomorrow (although not on Sunday when we're supposed to get more snow).

Lew said...

Two lovely spots to sit and reflect on life and the beauty of this world!

Indrani said...

Yes, the first pic is a winner.

Maple Lane said...

I enjoyed each of these so much. A real treat to visit with you. Enjoy the weekend.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Sylvia, I don't usually comment on the weekends --but when a post is as good as this one, I do leave a comment... Your reflection photos are terrific... I love that first one the most. TERRIFIC.
Hugs,

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.
