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!
With the holiday trip to Oregon and moving back there in early spring, I haven't had the time or ability to get out for many new shots, so I hope you'll bear with me and some repeats of favorites!  Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend as the holidays approach!!

Beautiful photos! I am amazed at how many wonderful quotes you can find, too. But the pictures are really wonderful!

Carletta said...

The first shot is stunning!
Love the whimsical shot of the ducks bottoms! The colors are wonderful and I can just imagine them sitting there planning their day. :)

Both reflection are very cool, but I specially enjoy the one with the two ducks ignoring you... There is a little bit of insolence in the attitude of the birds, it makes me smile.

That one duck seems to be giving you a side-glance. Wonder what it was thinking. As Socrates implied, the more you know, the more you know you don’t know, that is for sure. :)

Vagabonde said...

I like your duck couple. What do you think they are talking about? Do they find the water too cold?

Lowell said...

I like the ducks! And the quote by Caen. Reminds me of the time when I was in the 9th grade and "in luuuuve!"

My parents and aunt and uncle were sitting around and someone said, "Every dog has its day; Lowell's having his while still a pup!"

I was quite chagrined. :-)

NatureFootstep said...

the ducks are standing there like an old couple. Cute! :)

James said...

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

The ducks are so cute sittin' on that log, just reflecting away!

Gerald (Hyde DP) said...

They look like a couple of old men discussing the state of the world.

Valerie said...

Wonderful captures both, Sylvia, but I do love the one with ducks - it conjures up all sorts of imaginary "conversations" between the two of them....!!

MTWaggin said...

The ducks are a great shot and I adore the composition of it.

Is that why my wisdom teeth came in sideways and I had to get them surgically removed?

Love your sky shot - pinned!

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.
