As we wait for Fall to arrive in Seattle, I've been looking back over the past year from the magnificent Space Needle to our beautiful spring, the lengthy summer and the breathless beauty of our sunsets and Mt. Rainier -- regardless of the season! Hope you enjoy! Have a wonderful week!!

Happiness is like a butterfly.
The more you chase it, the more it eludes you.
But if you turn your attention to other things,
It comes and sits softly on your shoulder.
  Henry David Thoreau

You really hit the jackpot here, and my favorites are the Seattle skylline and the flowers! Hope your day started out nicely!

Henry Thoreau was a creative thinker who conveyed the art of happiness so well in that quote. Concentrating on Seattle sunsets goes a long way in inspiring those good feelings. :)

I have been to Seattle and I agree, it is a beautiful place. Then when you add in your talents, your wonderful eye for beauty and it highlights what is already there. Very nice Sylvia. As usual you have put a smile on my face ...

What a beautiful mosaic, Sylvia. Two months of blue skies - is that even possible in Seattle? What a great place to spend such a gorgeous summer. Have a wonderful week!

Barb said...

Whatever the season, your skylines and colors are magnificent! Love the new Header, too.

Jack said...

Yes, Sylvia, Seattle sure has a lot to offer.

Beautiful collage!

SandyCarlson said...

You sure do have a beautiful world, Sylvia. Thanks for landing it in my living room. I am now in paradise!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

What a gorgeous postcard you have given us. Seriously, I cannot imagine more beautiful scenes than these from your camera. You do live in a lovely city with many faces and wonderful changes of season. I think that September would be my favorite in Seattle - warm and dry!

Bises,
Genie

Indrani said...

A wonderful mix of all beautiful sights! Have a great week ahead Sylvia!

Gattina said...

Beautiful collage ! I am certainly NOT looking for autumn ! I hate this season. Anyway this year I got the impresion that there are no more seasons !

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Beautiful collage Sylvia, Mt. Rainier is spectacular. I don't even know how you manage these group shots, I'm such a technophobe!

Stewart M said...

I can see a nice skyline in those pictures as well.

The funny thing about taking the pictures from the street was that taxis kept stopping and seeing if I needed a lift - almost nobody walks anywhere in the commercial part of town - and especially not in the heat of the day! "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" I suppose!

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.
