from a "click and hope" photographer



“Life is full of beauty.

Notice it.

Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces.

Smell the rain, and feel the wind.

Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”
~Ashley Smith~

The quote is nice. I like the bee photo too.

My wife, Patty, and I have been married for 52 years today. Imagine that.

This Bee (?) Wesp brrrrr , a good photo, but I hate them SO MUCH Yak!

Thanks for your commenting and (haha!) that you tagged me, well I did my best to post 9 (!) facts. I was surprised about your fact: 'that you've lived for 2 years in Brunsum (Holland),very interseting fact... so you might like Dutch photo's because of that? Did you ever visited Holland after you left?

By the way before I forget (I will post it on my blog also) Middle Next week I leave for our summer holiday , so 1 more week of blogging... Than you know that when you do not hear from me...

Lovely photo dear!

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
