Diamonds and other sparkly things
Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are – this photo was taken (with my iPhone) a year ago at Easter and my then 2year-old granddaughter loved seeing the sparkling stars above us. She just kept saying wow!
The sea has a certain diamond sparkle to it when the sun shines brightly.
More sparkles on water
Last weekend we were in Sydney with our daughter and family and the city turned on the sparkles for us, weather-wise. The previous weeks/months had seen torrential rain
Other types of diamonds
There’s the rough diamonds, salt of the earth people.
The sparkling colours and light of autumn.
This Easter our granddaughter had some fun with sparklers and the fire in the backyard. She’s growing up fast.
And then there’s the bright lights of Tumbarumba.
Diamonds are associated with strength, love and health.
I’m lucky to have these attributes in my life at the moment and not a day goes by that I don’t feel grateful for that.
Sunday Stills Photo Challenge
I enjoy the connections we make through blogging and photo challenges such as this is a perfect example. Terri and I have never met but we share many similarities in our lives. I always enjoy reading her posts and seeing her world through her eyes. She’s a sparkling diamond!
There are lots of ways we can see diamonds in our lives. I’ve gone for a different version today and I hope you have enjoyed my post and photos. To me diamonds represent sparkles and so I’ve shared some photos that show this in everyday life.
As Marilyn said:
Wishing you a great week ahead, full of sparkles and shiny bright things at the very least.
