Weekend Reflections

Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.
Mark Twain
Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.
Mark Twain

Well, Blogger has been messing with me again! I've tried unsuccessfully to re-do it five times, so excuse it for being upside down????

Love the penguins! I was able to get up close to a penguin in Patagonia. I was alone as was he (or she?) and we just looked at each other at about arm's length. Well, of course I was looking through my camera lens - hah!

Bises,
Genie

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Beautiful images. The penguins are adorable, they have such a tough time surviving out in the wild. Fascinating aerial shot, amazing how all the rocks and reefs just all of a sudden give way to deep 'nothing'. Scary! I hope you have a wonderful weekend Sylvia.
