Candy Humble

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Some days I feel 
like I am made of
cotton candy:
All sugar and air!

Bright Towers Rise on a Cloudy Street

You plan a tower that 
will pierce the clouds? 
Lay first the foundation 
of humility.
  Saint Augustine

Giant Swims to Horizon. Flutter Kick!

Be patient. Sometimes
you have to go through
the worst to get the best.
Keep swimming!

Photography reduces the
world to strips and rectangles; photographers scrutinize the
surfaces of reality 
in hope of unlocking the
potential for significance
that is latent within them.

Pride juggles with her toppling towers, They strike the sun and cease, But the firm feet of humility They grip the ground like trees. G. K. Chesterton

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

I'm swimming as fast as I can.

The quote from Saint Augustine is great. I love the swimming giant, preparing for the next Olympics, and Pixie the Younger. The last shot of flowers is beautiful.

That reflection is disconcerting - and lovely.

Unfortunately, this happens too rarely. But it's a beautiful vision.
Danke - thanks - Elke (Nature Thursday)

I always like your pics. There's something so cheery in them. I like the reflection on with the rain and the city #Skywatch

The opening photo with the palm trees is magical!
