One fleeting moment

I was in a car in New Jersey and all of a sudden I saw an unusually decorated restaurant.

Fortunately, my camera used a moment and shot a picture to share it with you.

PS. Hopefully, the food is good there too!

Gentle beauty

It’s raining hard outside.

But my beautiful neighbors are with me and I am happy.

Here is one of them.

The tiniest flowers in Queens

.TINY

I used maximum zoom when I shot the photo below. These flowers are the tiniest in Queens.

Three problems.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: White Flowers

1. I am color-blind.

2. I missed many Cee’s challenges.

3. I don’t know names of majority of flowers.

However, I decided to take part in the old CFFC as I hope that I

do know what white is. I also hope that I am right that there is a lot of

light and dark green on the photo below.

By the way, how these white flowers are called?

The Daily Post photo challenge: Victory

It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

Golden? Yellow?

I am color blind.
When I saw that there were photo challenges “Yellow” and “Golden” my first reaction was: “Is not this the same?”.
*
I went to Google and asked for definition of “Yellow“.
The answer was that it is “the color between green and orange in the spectrum, a primary subtractive color complementary to blue; colored like ripe lemons or egg yolks.
Synonyms: flaxen, golden, gold, blond/blonde.”
*
After this answer I decided to take part in both challenges. The next step was to choose proper photos.
*
After long consideration I chose four photos below. Please let me know which of them you like more.

Quotes of Joseph Addison

Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.

Reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life.

What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to a human soul.

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.

Friendship improves happiness, and abates misery, by doubling our joys, and dividing our grief.

There is nothing that makes its way more directly into the soul than beauty.

Everything that is new or uncommon raises a pleasure in the imagination, because it fills the soul with an agreeable surprise, gratifies its curiosity, and gives it an idea of which it was not before possessed.
