"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it." - Confucius

"Keep your faith in all beautiful things; in the sun when it is hidden, in the Spring when it is gone."- Roy R. Gilson

"The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes." - Frank Lloyd Wright

"To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - this is to have succeeded." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is one of your best photo sets, in my humble opinion. I can see your zest for life just in your choice of subjects. Well spotted and well shot!

I like the rusty barbed wire, Monique.

I wonder why you post so many photos at a time rather than one per day. Is there a reason why you have chosen this method?

Julie-thanks for the nice comment. I have always posted a group of photos all at once, so that I am not sending too many updates to my followers/subscribers. Also my life gets so busy, that posting once every 7 to 10 days works best.
