Brighten Someones Day



In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.  ~Aaron Rose

Dare to reach out your hand into the darkness,
to pull another hand into the light.  ~Norman B. Rice


We cannot hold a torch to light another path without brightening our own.  ~Ben Sweetland

Wonderful! In your first picture, the contrast of light and shadow is beautiful! The leaves make such a fine and delicate pattern. And in places, you cannot even tell if it is real or shadow. Splendid. Then after studying that comes the brilliance of the green palm, fresh and sunny. The two are perhaps even opposites, yet compliment each other perfectly. And last, the tree. Wonderful shadows and a lovely path. Show us what's down it!

Hi Sandra, Pretty sunlight and shadows this morning. My mother always said "the sun is my friend" because she could see so much better in sunlight!

Ann said...

Well thank you for bringing some light in to my day and sending me off to work with a sunny disposition today :)

Amazing quotes and photography, Sandra. I especially love the last one of the gnarled tree in sunshine and shadows.

The tree, the shadows, the path all come together and bring the photo alive---fell like I'm there.
I moved my desk into another room this past week and am basking in the increased light.

I love the photo and quotes. Reminds me of the old song, "Brighten the Corner Where You Are"!

I love it!! I always love the Bell South commercial slogan, "reach out and touch someone"!

All beautiful photos of light and beautiful quotes about light!
I just read these aloud to my sister, Nita. We both enjoyed them!

We need to help each other bring light into this strange world of ours. Pictures are amazing.

When I first saw this it occurred to me ... Sunday lessons are sometimes best learned not in the pew, but via the words of our friends. Beautiful!

Beautiful pictures Sandra. The quotes are great as well.

Oh, I so love that second and third photo...love the backlighting in the second shot, and just simply love the tree trunk in the last.
