Shutter Click + Chat...

Today's SS +C is dancing. Now, I must admit, that in my day I could really 'cut a rug'... and even today, I hold my own with the best of them. But believe me when I tell you that, my shyness with being in front of the camera {and I am as camera shy as I am a great dancer}, has made it impossible to produce a picture this week. So graciously sitting in for me, is Sharon + Juan...

What Colour is Your Glass Ceiling?

{Pictures via Dale Chihuly via The Diva::special thanx}

I took a stroll to many places this afternoon to one of my many special 'spots'. Found a picture of this wonderful glass ceiling installment. The vibrant colours and the shear beauty of this piece sent me looking for more! While perusing through the magnificent picturial displays, I began to ponder....what would I give to live under one, just one!, of these visual appetizers?...hummmmm

A Couple or A Pair::

Ah-h-h-h-h 'LOVE'. Use whatever language that you need to announce it, the concept of love is universal. Spelled out, 'L-O-V-E' or symbolically displayed as a curvaceous graphic, one thing that can be said for certain about the spelling & symbol...they are the Perfect Couple!
Another fun topic to click & chat about. I {LUV} it! Want in? Click on the badge below and get started.

Shadow Shot Sunday...

You know when you have those seemingly never-ending, forever challenging times of your life. Those moments when you think that you live under a very large black cloud. Those moments when no matter how hard you try to dig you way out of a hole {by the way...how the h*ll did I get into this hole in the first place?} all you find is that you're standing in a higher pile of dirt?
Oh yes, we all have had them some time or another.
Enter the above SSS photo.
I {luv} the innocence of the young child as she sits, not so quietly, but with definite intent on consuming the goodies in her little bag. All the while attempting to balance her petite frame back onto the aged, but sturdy, pew. The lesson:: Stay focused on the task at hand. Regain your footing by relying on those things/lessons that are steadfast, tried and true. Remember that the bag is always half full.
Then there is that phenomenal shadow of a cross cast onto the floor of this holy place of worship! Right at the feet of this {luv}-ly little soul. The lesson:: Simply put... with steadfast belief and commitment, all challenges can be overcome. And often times that ray of hope is right at your feet.

Every week a look forward to selecting a photo to post for Shadow Shot Sunday. There is a nice little place to visit if you'd like to see more. And if you want to get 'your shadow on' click on the picture below to get started.
