Well, the new year is underway and time for another look at Our World!! Hope all of you had a great weekend! It's always fun to look around our world and see what looks particularly appealing for today's post!!

Do right for your own sake, and be happy in knowing that your neighbor will certainly share in the benefits resulting.
Mark Twain

We live in the present, we dream in the future and we learn eternal truths from the past.
Madame Chiang Kai-Shek

Real generosity toward the future lies in giving all to the present.
Albert Camus




My son, David, liked the camera he gave me for Christmas so much that he got himself the same one!! And here's a photo he took last night of the moon in Dallas!!  Don't expect my shots to be this good for some time!! He's much more talented than I am!  But I had to share this with you! Isn't it awesome!!!

The moon shot is awesome but I like your scenery shots the best and they are nothing to sneeze at!

Karen said...

Great shots Sylvia. That first one makes me dizzy! And wow on David's shot!!!

TexWisGirl said...

beautiful job on the dallas moon, sylvia's son! :)

love the trees in the first photo, too.

Reader Wil said...

Judging from the shape of the moon, you must live not so far from the equator. Am I right? Your photos and quotes are marvellous. Have a great week.

Oh wow, I'm gobsmacked by the moon. And I want to be right there on the shore!

Where DOES your son get all his talent? (And good looks and charming personality too of course!) ... you are a great role model Mom!

That first picture makes me homesick for the Northwest...it is so typical of Oregon/Washington coastline.

LeenaH said...

Happy 2013 to you and yours Sylvia!

The photo of your son is perfect indeed!! And now I am curious what kind of the camera you have!
But also your photos and writings too are enjoyable!

Amazing moon shot!

Pat Tillett said...

Hi Sylvia! Happy New Year! As always, it's a nice group of photos. As to the moon, I've NEVER taken a decent photo of it in my life.

Gemma Wiseman said...

So love the crater details in that awesome shot of the moon! But I do love that first photo especially - looking down on my favourite kind of world - beaches + water!

Fun60 said...

Wow that shot of the moon is awesome but take credit for your own photos which are wonderful.

Penelope Puddlisms said...

Oh, aren’t you lucky to have a camera with a lens that can get you so up close and personal with the moon!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

That first step must be a doozie!

Leovi said...

Hi Sylvia, I liked all the photos and the qoutes. The scenic beach shots are beautiful. And I love the mountain view. Your son's moon shot is awesome. Thanks for sharing and hosting Our World. Have a great week ahead.

Weekend-Windup said...

Stunning pictures, great shots!!!

George said...

These views of our world are simply beautiful. I suspect it won't be long before the photos you take with your new camera are every bit as good as your son's picture of the moon.

That moon shot is just amazing!

Happy New Year Ms Sylvia. Hope to be back blogging so often, but sure glad to be able to share photos from my road trip, and locally.

Enjoy your camera, and don't be like me, not reading the manual.

Take care!

Wonderful sceneries! Love the view from above on top. And the moon, WOW! Congratulations to your son, what a shot! Also LOL at the new header.

Stewart M said...

I think you should claim the Moon image as your own!

Well, there is a lot of genetics the two photographers in common!

Love all of these images Sylvia, but 'the dark side of the moon' is tres mysterious!

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.
