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!
Hope all of you are ready for a great weekend and hopefully, some lovely weather as well!!

Beauty isn't worth thinking about; what's important is your mind. You don't
want a fifty-dollar haircut on a fifty-cent head.
 Garrison Keillor

By working faithfully eight hours a day, you may get to be a boss and work
twelve hours a day.

The colors of the sunset are amzing Sylvia, nice shot

Carletta said...

A stunning sunset!
Love the composition of your second shot! The shadow from the plant looks like an Angel and shadow of the fluted glass looks like a horn - I smiled thinking of Gabriel blowing his horn. :)
Have a great weekend Sylvia and may you have more beautiful sunsets to end the days!

Such beautiful reflections in photos and quotes..
they give reason for pause to drink them both in..
and you even provided the perfect drinking vessel.

Thanks for sharing the beauty, Sylvia.

My fave this week is that pretty orange-yellow glass. You are so lucky to have the most luscious light that pours into your home.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Love the golden glass! And the Garrison Keiler quote.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

That long band of orange reflected on the water reminds me that the weekend always promises a little sunshine whether it is courtesy of the weatherman or we make our own.

Hope yours is full of sunshine, mon amie!

Bises,
Genie

That quote about becoming a boss and working 12 hours a day is sure right. Why didn't anyone tell me as I was climbing the ladder?

The reflection of the amber glass is wonderful, Sylvia.

The golden glow reflecting on the ocean is so infectious, and I so love it!

You sure picked the right time of day for great light. The sun is like a spotlight in the top one and the lighting and colors are beautiful in all of them.

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.
