Well it is the weekend after a sad week in the news. Unbelievable tragedy in Boston and now the explosion in Texas. I hope the world can just stay safe. My heart goes out to those affected by these events. It is incredibly sad. I feel unable to do much of a blog this weekend so just a few pictures and quotes.
(These shots were taken at Genoa Bay top picture and above here is a reflection in a restaurant window in Cowichan Bay for Weekend Reflections Meme.)
“Nonviolence doesn't always work -- but violence never does.”
“Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. Love still stands when all else has fallen.”
(These reflection shots are of Ogden Point docks. There is a new rail around the walkway now.)
|“He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still”|
(This is a relaxing reflection shot of the Oak Bay Marina.)
|“If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in the struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness, and your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos.”|
Martin Luther King, Jr.
For Sky Watch Friday:
(Esquimalt Sky, Fleming Beach area, I wish I could
walk all the way up to the sky.)
“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”
(Sky from the Blue Bridge)
|“The attempt to combine wisdom and power has only rarely been successful and then only for a short while”|
(Sky over the Inner Harbour)
Most of these shots were taken with the tiny Panasonic FZ200 as it is easy for me to carry around and is good for scenery, has a nice wide angle to it. It has a 500X zoom lens but I have not found it to be as good as my Canon 400mm lens for birding.
I may not enter all these memes but this is the only way I can still join in. Thanks so much to the meme hosts who put on each of the following amazing memes for bloggers to join in and share their work.
I want to list all these memes for this part of the week so others can join them and I can pick a few to link up to.
