TBT – Mirror

12.15.14.shadowglam2

I don’t remember where I purchased this mirror, and it doesn’t matter, but when I saw it, I had to have it. I love the retro look of it and her dragonfly wings. One day I noticed the reflection on the wall of the glass flowers on my nightstand. Just had to take the shot!

The dragonfly is often seen around water, ponds or on the edge of a river or lake. It symbolizes the affinity with the realm of feelings, water being a powerful symbol for emotions and the unconscious. If the spirit of the dragonfly comes to you, you may be called to explore your emotions in a light and joyful manner.

When we were in Arizona, there was a red dragonfly that I saw several mornings in a row that landed on the gate by the pool. It was an amazing creature to watch and it let me get close enough to photograph it. Thank you!

Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

With the weekly photo challenge titled “in the background” I had no choice but to photograph my roses in the mirror.  Yes, there I am in my bathroom behind the flowers (don’t laugh).  It was the best mirror I had in the house without standing on a stool and balancing the roses with one hand while taking the photo with another.  And that was just not going to happen 🙂

Hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  Remember why we celebrate Memorial Day.  It’s really not about the backyard BBQ’s, beer and hotdogs.  It’s remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for all of us in this country.  Namaste’

Mirror of Your Thoughts

Obviously I didn’t take this picture, but I really think it says a lot.  Actually no words are needed.

Hubby isn’t feeling well so I’m making this short.  Namaste’

 

Seeing Things in a New Way

“As soon as you see things in a new way, with a perspective of gratitude and an opportunity for growth, you will be rewarded immensely” ~ http://www.intenders.org

Doing this 366 project has allowed me to see things in a new way.  I seem to always be looking at things and saying to myself, “I wonder what kind of shot I can get of that?”  Sometimes there just isn’t anything that comes to me, but more often than not, an idea pops into my head about what to do.  I’m grateful for that, for the creative process and the opportunity for growth that this project has brought to me.  I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything!  And I am rewarded immensely by your support and encouragement.  I guess I can’t say that enough … so thanks again!

Bouncing the light is nature’s way of giving us unique, no two alike, images.  That’s what happened when I caught the sun reflecting on our zebra painting through a paned mirror on the other side of the room. I really like how the light was playing and bringing in the reds of the setting sun’s rays.  Namaste’

Mirror, Mirror …

This is what I call a “diva” mirror, which hangs on the wall in my bathroom.  I had lots of fun playing with some special effects on this one.  I actually did one similar to this and ordered some prints today so that I can send one to my granddaughter.  Shhhhh!  Don’t tell her.  She’s a diva in her own right 🙂  Happy Saturday and Namaste’
