Spotted on the Beach. Always grateful to have these watchful eyes around. I thought I’d get on board with this one for One Word Sunday: Profile Peace & Love!
Looking at your past is not a bad thing. Not to brood over it, but to cherish fond memories; see what you’ve done right (and wrong); and to learn from your past mistakes. When you take it all in and reflect, you figure out what’s worth repeating, what you should do differently next time, and—more importantly—what you should never do again.
Be sure and put your feet in the right place… and then stand firm. Abraham Lincoln That’s a great quote for me today. I’m beginning to realize that sometimes “self-learning” doesn’t really teach me anything. Well, it does but it doesn’t.
Some days I end up with the most random things! I’m still experimenting with strange effects and textures. I’ve been thinking about doing personalized portraits in the future, like the one featured here. It’s kind of abstract I guess… incorporating the subject’s interests or hobbies. In this case the subject is one of my sons, and he reads a lot. I don’t know. I think it’s a pretty cool idea—need to ponder it more. Anyway, I hope that everyone who celebrates the 4th had a fabulous time. Enjoy the weekend ahead!! —Janet
Yesterday is ashes; tomorrow wood. Only today does the fire burn brightly. —Old Eskimo proverb—
Don’t define your world in black and white, because there is so much hiding among the grays.
Nothing Gold Can Stay Nature’s first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf’s a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay. -Robert Frost I’ve definitely learned some new techniques over the course of my blogging adventure. That makes me happy! Anyway, I think the filter gives it a bit of a gold tone, so I pulled up this poem by Robert Frost. I thought it was a pretty good fit! Have a great day tomorrow everyone… TGIF!
Life is just one grand sweet song, so start the music. Ronald Reagan Yesterday was an absolutely wonderful day! I took this photograph from the Santa Monica Pier. Sometimes something (or someone) just captures your attention, and this was one of those moments. I saw this musician from the boardwalk and took a long distance shot.
The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn. Ralph Waldo Emerson
