Hi there - I like the full moon shot! I missed this one this month - it was one of the few times I did not have a camera with me!

I need to point out that the moth was on the outside of the building!!

Your photos are just fantastic, with beautiful quotes.

But I need to know did you tickle Mr. President for him to have such a huge smile? :-)

That rose is my favorite! Excellent composition and play with natural light. The quotes are indeed timeless words of wisdom. Many thanks for sharing, Sylvia!

What Can I Say?

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.
