Nature is beautiful!

It might be stormy but I don’t expect any beauty in it.

photographed a group of people who was doing the same.

Why do you think I chose this group?

What other title can you suggest to the photo?

World

All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.

William Shakespeare

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.

Pocono Manor and my photos

In 1977 my wife and I visited Pocono Manor first time. We liked it so much that then we stayed there (in the Carriage House) when we could.
After my retirement we went there every summer and enjoyed peace and beauty of this small town.
In the old post below I gave you information about past and future of Pocono Manor.

As far as I know Kalahari Resorts already bought the historic Inn at Pocono Manor and will finish soon construction of the largest in the world indoor water park and other facilities.
Will the place be better or worse?
We’ll know the answer this summer.

In the meantime I want to show you my photos taken last summer.
I placed them in a page “POCONO MANOR GALLERY”. Please click on the first photo and you’ll be able to see all pictures in proper sizes and colors.

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

What is Pocono Manor?

Wikipedia says: “Pocono Manor is an unincorporated community in Monroe CountyPennsylvaniaUnited States, located at approximately latitude 41.1 and longitude -75.359, at an elevation of 1,706 feet, on Pennsylvania State Highway 314 east of Pocono Summit and west of Swiftwater.[1] It is the location of a resort and golf course called The Inn at Pocono Manor, with a Donald Ross-designed golf course,[2] site of the Pocono Northeast Classic; and of the Pocono Manor Historic District.”

We are now in Pocono Manor and it is clear that the definition above is not very good.

First of all, there is the Carriage House in Pocono Manor. It is an independent time-sharing property.

Secondly, there are many private houses (the Cottage Colony).

Thirdly, until last year there were two 18-holes golf courses. Currently one course is intact…

Queens gallery

Every photo you take communicates something about a moment in time – a brief slice of time of where you were, who you were with, and what you were doing.

Kevin Systrom

I would add to the quote above: “…what you thought and/or felt at that moment”.

Today I added the page “Queens gallery”. You can see it HERE. Click on the first photo and you’ll see all of them in proper sizes and colors.

I mentioned several times in my posts that we can find beauty everywhere. It is inside us and outside. There are wonderful sunrises and sunsets everywhere. There are beautiful plants, flowers, animals, birds, parks, wonderful buildings in every big city or a small town.

Beautiful nature and beautiful people are everywhere!

I hope that you’ll like something in my photos shot in Queens.

Please take a look and let me know what you liked.

Thank you!

Everyone needs it

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.

Who created symmetry (2)?

SYMMETRY

Not long ago I published the post WHO CREATED SYMMETRY?

I expressed there several original thoughts about symmetry.

One of them: “As a rule beauty is not symmetrical.”

Another: “… symmetry … shows limits of human imagination.”

Please read more in this old post and then take a look at the picture below.

What’s your opinion?
