A Photo Quest

“The longest journey is the journey inwards. Of him who has chosen his destiny, Who has started upon his quest for the source of his being.”~Dag Hammarskjold

Thought I would share with you my quest through the week in photos. I have had multiple opportunities, whether out-and-about with hubby, going to the store or another errand. I have been trying to keep my eye out for a chance to snap a picture and the quest has been worth it, so I hope you enjoy.

As By Boat

“A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.” ~John A. Shedd

A beautiful day this past weekend brought us to one of the nearby inlets. They have some great docks, often a lot of crab fishing is occurring. I was able to capture many great photos, thought I’d share a few that went well with Travel Theme: Transport. Multiple boats in the harbor, as the end of the season approaches.

Window To The Soul

“An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.” ~Martin Buber

This is my “baby” Willow. She is a character, full of expression both vocally and physically. One of her best traits are her intense eyes, which are amazing hues of gold. I love that they match the brilliant tones in her fur. She can be difficult to capture as she is often in motion, so this is a treasure. You can view some of her more active and humorous poses here.

Reflections Through The Pane

Reflections Through The Pane

Peering through the window pane

I reflect on the day that’s passed

My tears fall gently, silently

I am touched by hues of color

__________

The tree reflects on year gone by

Day is ending, darkness is at bay

Its leaves begin to fall like rain

There is beauty in the pain
