How quickly things change...


Let me count the ways:

1.  My mind (it's a girl thang)
2.  My emotions (it's a girl thang)
3.  My clothes (it's a girl thang)
4.  My body (it's an OLDER girl thang)
5.  My hair (it's a girl thang when it's humid out, I SWEAR it looked good when I put down the blow dryer)
6.  My checking account balance (it's a ME thing)

and...

7.  The sunset somewhere over the Mediterranean (it's a beautiful thang)...


7 p.m.


"Nothing But Blue Skies For Me"
Mediterranean


8:05 p.m.


"Song at Sunset"
Mediterranean


8:36 p.m.


"Water on Fire"
Mediterranean


I stood still, and let my surroundings do the changing.  Just moi, "James Dean", and a glass of wine.  Floating somewhere in the Mediterranean.  Sometimes change can be a good thang.

  6. Yep, this is exactly the kind of change I DO like....I've been going to watch the sunrise a lot more lately and did the same thing a while ago. Just amazing how a few minutes can make so much difference...was going to go this morning, but after my whirlwind of a first day of school, I was dragging a bit. But now I'm headed to the beach....sigh. I'm already feeling frazzled! ; ) Just gorgeous!!

  22. Thanks for your kind comments on my sunflower pics. Just wanted to let you know I don't own an actual macro lens (maybe one day!), but I do have a couple of filters that screw onto the front of the lens, One is a Hoya Filter Close-Up +4, and the other is a Hama Macro +10. A lot cheaper than a macro lens and they suffice for the amount of close-up shots I take :O)

  24. What a fun post, love the narrative and the pictures are gorgeous. I like them all! :) The Mediterranean is special to me as I was born in Southern Italy and have many happy memories of the sea. I instinctively clicked on your photo out of over 100 in OWT ... I was drawn to it. Thanks ffor sharing :)

  26. Love that first shot....as a precursor to a beautiful sundown. Sometime about the winding light atop the water delights. A vacation is a great time to slow down and see....that's a "thang" for everyone.
