Shattered Reflections

Week 18

Reflections by MisterWives: MisterWives – Reflections (Lyric Video)

Lyrics:
Put me on the shelf; discipline myself
To let the sparks die out
Shattering anything
That has reflections of you
You

Set You Free

Week 19

I had this idea for a while but haven't had the time to implement it until this week.  I shot it on Friday morning and then spent about 12 or hours editing it into this.  

This morning… I found the perfect song to go with it.

Red Balloons By Katie Melua – Katie Melua: red balloons(lyrics)

Lyrics: 

I put my heart in a red balloon
But I let it go too soon, let it go on the boulevard
Where wicked winds blow so hard
Maybe had I looked up I would have seen that

The sky is full of red balloons
Red balloons are full of broken hearts
Broken hearts are floating by a chance
Will they burst or drift into arms?
Will they burst or drift into arms?

I put my voice in a red balloon
For you it sang too many tunes haunted by those melodies
I let it go with the breeze
Maybe had I looked up I would have seen that

The sky is full of red balloons
Red balloons are full of broken hearts
Broken hearts are floating by a chance
Will they burst or drift into arms?
Will they burst or drift into arms?

I put my eyes in a red balloon
To watch you with the light of the moon
But seeing you holding hands
With another girl and making plans
Well, I just had to set you free and finally see that

The sky is full of red balloons
Red balloons are full of broken hearts
Broken hearts are floating by a chance
Will they burst or drift into arms?
Will they burst or drift into arms?

They burst or drift into arms
Into arms

Hooked

I have noticed a huge drop in comments/plusses with most of my photography here and I think I know why.  I think it is because I have been so non-interactive lately.  (Or at least I hope that is it… LOL!)

So, today, I am going to try my best to be more interactive, comment more, plus more.  I want to try a few weeks of this and see if anything changes.  I am going to do my dangest to get to everyone who comments on this photo, or any of my other photos, and check out their profile and latest post.  

Spammers… that just means I get to block you sooner.  ;)

Every Sunset Has Its Thorns

I've thought about waxing poetic about the sunsets/sunrises here (truly, they aren't to be missed, especially when you add a storm into the mix… just wow!).  I've thought about saying nothing at all.  In fact, I would have put this up for a certain wordless theme…but I always get into trouble with the curator so…  I won't.  This time.  ;)

I think today, I will just go for a middle ground and say even though sunsets and endings can be bittersweet, there is always a new day and opportunity coming.  You just have to open yourself up to the possibilities and see what happens.  But damn, sometimes those endings with thorns can really dig in and hurt.

Tempestas' Love

A HUGE Happy HAPPY Birthday goes out to +Kyle Wilson!!!  Hope you have a great day today!  (be sure to check out his "Left Behind" photos… some gorgeous shots in there!)

This was a storm from July.  We have gotten some in August but I have been too busy to chase them.  I am hoping the next few days will bring something I can chase down!

All of my lightning photos are named after god/goddess mythology, with few exceptions.  In ancient Roman religion, Tempestas is a goddess of storms or sudden weather. As with certain other nature and weather deities, the plural form Tempestates is common.
