Representations of Light

A  L  A !



"Never lose an opportunity

of seeing anything beautiful,

for beauty is God's handwriting. "


Ralph Waldo Emerson 









"Be humble for you are made of earth.
Be noble for you are made of stars."

Serbian proverb




Orange you glad you stopped by today?
I am!






“With patience,

mulberry leaves become satin.”

 

 Turkish Proverb 





“Praise is like sunlight to the human spirit:

we cannot flower and grow without it.”

 

 Jess Lair

 Walking in the morning with my camera,
I realize that what I am trying to 
capture
are 
representations
of
LIGHT.


As "point & shoot princess"
I do the best I can. . .


Thank YOU
for being part of it.

I like the Serbian Proverb. Be humble and noble. Yes, we are indeed made of stardust. Very cool concept to contemplate.

"Be humble for you are made of earth.Be noble for you are made of stars."Serbian proverb

My favorite, I remember the first time I heard carl Sagan explain that we are made of star stuff scattered across the lightyeards and that we will eventually return to that condition.

If I close my eyes I can remember the sound of the wind rustling through palm trees, the cool breeze coming off the ocean and the sound of the surf lapping up on the shore. Sigh..... It's a hot muggy day here in Virginia.
