Linking with James for this week's Weekend Reflections. Press on through for beautiful photos from around the world.
I'm going to unplug and unwind for a couple days, but wanted to make sure to get my reflections in before doing so. Confessing that while I'm looking forward to a little mini-retreat at the family cottage, while there I always miss my ability to get on line. Seems silly really, but the internet provides a portal to the world and to my many acquaintances and friends out there in blog and flickr land.
I used to say that music was a "time art"; if you missed a beat or a note, you couldn't go back and recapture it. A difficult concept for my students to comprehend....they'd want to go back and fix-while I wanted them to keep the flow of the song going. Keeping up with friend's blogs is kind of like that. Even when you're not there, blogs just keep going and going and pretty soon your dashboard is so full, well, you've got to let some drop....if I miss you I'll catch ya next week.
Am I supposed to be talking about reflections? Ah, yes.....
Star Island, NH
The view that greeted my friends and me when we arrived on the ferry boat at Star Island. I think they all were looking straight ahead, but I caught this before trailing on behind them. Ever feel like you're constantly running to catch up when you're the only one taking snaps?
A few nights ago we had a late afternoon down pour followed by clearing skies before sunset. A great combo for photographers. This little reflection was on a small plant stand outside a shop. I knew my fellow reflection lovers would appreciate it.

In for the Night
I like the impressionistic feel of these muted reflections. More lobster boats; what can I say. Picturesque Maine...
I fell in love instantly with this yellow sailboat and took a gazillion shots of it. Then this boy came stepping along-providence!! It was a great shot, but I felt with him passing through it became even more special.
Thanks for checking out my reflections this week....and have a great weekend.
