Its sky!

on Friday, July 4, 2008



A child's fear is a world whose dark corners are quite unknown to grownup people. It has its sky and its abysses, which no light can ever penetrate. Huh?! I fell from the sky. I'm a parachutist, and I missed my mark.

It is well known that we Portuguese once sailed the seven seas searching for new lands, wealth and adventures.
We were brave in those days and gave the world new worlds!

Luckily I don’t have to sail the big oceans on a small ship to sea the wonders of our world …
No Sir, I just need to check with Mr. Tom, the finest host there is, for a trip around the world with SKY WATCH TOURS and with a click here, a click there I am quickly in the USA, England, Brazil, Italy, China, Australia, Finland … well, everywhere.

And on each stop I come to see a little marvel of our world under a great sky!
Hope you can come and see my piece of the sky at lenses & visions

Love you photos. Just stopped in to comment about your button for SkyWatch Friday.. I made a small one (80x15) for Tom and sent it to him today. Hopefully, he'll like it and put it up on the site!

Anywho, so it matches your other buttons--like the Photo Hunter and Wordless Wednesday ones--better, here is the link:

I hope you can take the time to stop by my site and check out my posts for this week!

What a lovely beach ... so different from the the familiar ones I walk daily with Molly here in Southern California. it reminds me of beaches in Hawaii. Thanks for dropping by my first Sky Watch at Small Reflections earlier today.
Hugs and blessings,

Raven said...

Lovely beach... your words made me look again and I can see the words fitting the photo. Beautiful but with mysterious shadows. The beach looks wonderful, though.

Michelle said...

Thank you so much for your comment on my Sky Watch Friday post-I appreciate each & every one I receive.

Now, about your photo, I would love to live somewhere near the beach where I could take photos like that - I'd be there everyday just snapping away!!! My computer is filled w/ beach pictures!

Thanks again!
