Fireworks (a gift from Mankind)

8comments
When the clock strikes twelve on December 31st, people all over the world cheer and wish each other a very Happy New Year.
For some, this event is no more than a change of a calendar. For others (e.g. me), the New Year symbolizes the beginning of a better tomorrow. I think we start a new book every New Year so I I will share with you the title of some of my main Chapters: Happiness, Hope, Family, Friends, Change, Opportunity.
So, if you look forward to a good year ahead, spread happiness with your best wishes.

As you can see this time I'm posting a "classic" fireworks shot! :)

Another day, another sunset

sunsetPhotoshop? Of course not! Just a gimp(ed) image! :).
This one is dedicated to those people (3 persons) that sent emails to me saying things like "your last image is your worst image ever"... hope you like this waterscape better!

Know what you want to do, hold the thought firmly, and do every day what should be done, and every sunset will see you that much nearer to your goal.

Hoping and Wishing

7comments
PanaderoXmas is coming so I will start mixing these kind of "best wishes" images into my regular stream.

Stealing the blue from the splashing seas,
A tinge of green from the youthful trees,
A bit of orange from the sunset hues,
With crystal white from the morning dews,
I have framed a bright and colorful wish Just for you...

Well, as you can see I stole the blue from the sky instead... :)
