What a gorgeous capture of color and light in the sky.

I like the glass shadow and the tones on the tablecloth.

I love the George Bernard Shaw quotes. I am a little bit confused with the first one though. I will Google it later. LOL

Bonjour Sylvia,

Hello, Sylvia! Thanks for the warm welcome... although I'm not so sure I am back (I've missed blogging)! I had a short break home in Manila, so I was able to post a few times, but now I am back in China and that makes blogging difficult. Less time (more work) and slow connections to social media (through an anonymous proxy). Anyway, we'll see.

Your reflections are soothing for my eyes. So colorful. I won't be seeing a sunset here until I get back home again. I may be making a mistake coming to work here in China, but at least now I know it's honorable. LOL!

I love the the glass refection and the way the rim makes a circle that holds the colored pattern.

Linky Tools is having server problems that they are trying to fix.

The colorful reflection reminds me of a stained glass window... lovely.

The water reflection is just inspiring and uplifting. Love the quote, mon amie. Enjoy your weekend, and I will try to get a water reflection on the Seine for you.

Bises,
Genie

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.
