A quote....or two....or three....or four.

This is a photo I took with my cell phone, on our road trip to Philadelphia a few weeks ago.  Sometimes I am surprised how a photo turns out.  I was taking this shot with the sun facing me, and I was having a hard time when looking at the back of the cell and could hardly see what I was taking.  I didn't find out until I had it on the computer screen once we got home, and I was pleased with how it turned out.   We took a different route for our return trip and were driving through Delaware, on a back road somewhere.  Not exactly sure where we were at the time but Gregg thinks he can find it again, and we will return one of these days.  


"There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle."
~Albert Einstein~

"Immerse yourself in nature, quietly listen, smell, watch, taste and touch.  Nurture your conscience.  Protect nature.  Defend the garden of your spirit."
~Author Unknown~

"Collect moments, not things."
~Author Unknown~

"In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous."

I've been in that situation when I couldn't see what picture I was taking... I gave up. I'm glad you didn't 'cause the picture is a gem.

It really is beautiful and I love the way you travel....we have had that same conversation when looking at driveby photos ..."we've got to go back there. Where were we again?.".....;>)

I left a comment, but not certain it went through.

The photo is lovely; amazing what cell phone cameras are capable of these days.

Lovely quotes too!

I should start collecting moment rather than things, as the house is looking a tad cluttered at the moment!!
