Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.
Oscar Wilde
Don't wait around for other people to be happy for you. Any happiness you get you've got to make yourself.
Alice Walker


It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.

So true! So true! I think especially the Charles Spurgeon quote at the end. And, we think that we need the same things to be happy. Happiness doesn't wait. It is now. Hope your weekend is full of sunshine and clear weather!

That second shot is so pretty!

Ralph said...

The brass hippo looks menacing and calm at the same time. Must not disturb! The amber and red glassware is as always, beautiful in shadow. Nice to have sun in Seattle!

Betsy Adams said...

Hugs,
Betsy

Lovely shadows and what a great sculpture!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

...that golden orange long stem vase makes one stunning shadow shot!! And I must ask...is that hippo a bronze statue? IN a park? At the zoo?

Sylvia K said...

Yep, Anni! It is a bronze statue in the zoo! They have several of different animals and when you come across them, they do startle you a bit! And do have real, live hippos, too!

Rajesh said...

Wonderful shots, I like that last but one image very much.

Cool hippo taking a siesta!


The flower (not sure what it is) is such a pretty color!

Enjoy your weekend.

I love them, that first one has to be a children's playground. I hope you're having a great weekend, maybe some nice fall weather to get out and about with Sam.
