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!!

I have been unable to leave comments on the blogs of those of you who use Word Press -- just get a weird message that I can't leave a comment! 
All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.
Henry Ellis

Always acknowledge a fault. This will throw those in authority off their
guard and give you an opportunity to commit more.
Mark Twain
Diligence is a good thing, but taking things easy is much more restful.

Great sky! Nothing beats a beautiful sunset/rise.

Beautyful fragments of a serene life!
I wish you a happy week-end, dear Sylvia!

I always love your reflection photos, great quotes. I learned the value a long time ago of just admitting fault even when it isn't so I could just move on.

Beautiful shadow shots Sylvia, love the reading glasses and book, now that's a sight I'm very familiar with. I hope you and your family have a lovely weekend.

Gine said...

Beautiful shots! The lighting gives them a nice peaceful feel.

Have a great weekend!

A good book, a glass and a sunset (preferably in combination ...) - what good be better?

Hi Sylvia ! This is a long time I did not participate in James' weekend, but it is a pleasure to come back to such nice pics ! I worked on shadows reflecting glass too... See you !

The wine glass throws a lovely reflection.

Susan said...

You find the best quotes. Wisdom in little bunches. Love that eyeglasses shot-and the circular pattern from the goblet-great noticing. Have a happy weekend.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

So gorgeous! Let's pick up that glass and I'll bring mine and we'll share a glass of wine amidst the reflections.

Halcyon said...

Looks like you will be having a nice weekend: a beautiful sunny sky, a good book and a glass of wine. Those seem like the perfect ingredients for a relaxing weekend!

Those are some great reflection shots and also great reflecting quotes...made me laugh at the Mark Twain one about commiting more...creative ideas on this site.

Judy said...

I love that first photo, of the path leading across the water to the setting sun!

TexWisGirl said...

i like the first photo and quote. :)

Pat said...

Very interesting captures of the glasses and glass reflection, and the sunset reflection is stunning, Sylvia. Have a fun Saint Paddy's Day and a great weekend!

Al said...

That first shot is absolutely incredible, Sylvia - but you already knew I'd say that since I love the water so much! I hope you and Sam have a fantastic weekend. I'm keeping your daughter in my thoughts and prayers.

Beautiful reflections, Sylvia. Mark Twain's tongue-in-cheek comments are so enjoyable!

magiceye said...

beautifully captured!!

Louis la Vache said...

The lead image in this post is exceptional! Perfect for SWF!

Mama Zen said...

I love these!

Indrani said...

Wordpress is boycotting blogspot I guess... ;)))

Fantastic captures.

These quotes are always rejuvenating..

EcoRover said...

I'm always surprised when folks refer to Clemens (Mark Twain) as a humorist. I always took him to be a philosopher of pragmatism.

Team G Square said...

You are always great with these reflections ......

Ann said...

I hear Mark Twain very well, gives me an excuse for my laziness.

Gattina said...

Nice reflections ! I think I have read the book !

s.c said...

Nice pictures and the glasses with the book also a classic is becoming a little bit more modern in your picture. Like it

NatureFootstep said...

lovely reflections and shadows in your shots. Especially I like the last one with the glass. :)

Cezar and Léia said...

I really like your header photo with what you see in the clouds... :)
God bless you!

I love that swirl pattern of the glass reflections! Cheers for St. Patrick's Day.

I am glad I am not the only person having a problem with WP blog format. You only have three options: WP log on;twitter or Facebook.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Hi Sylvia! I like the reflection in the wine glass, but it's empty!

Jack said...

All three are good, Sylvia, but your sunset shot really captures my attention. Have a grand weekend, and hoist a pitcher to Saint Patrick.

SandyCarlson said...

Your shadow shots are gorgeous. I love the glasses and paperback.

NixBlog said...

Beautiful shots! I especially like the eyeglasses on the book, Sylvia.

Beautiful Sky Sylvia!
