Random from Quiet Quiet favorites. Ones that call to me when I am in search of peace, reflection, for an inward contemplation. I invite you to enjoy, to experience these lovely pieces and the talented artists who created them.

Random Favourites

To be humble, to be kind.
It is the giving of the peace in your mind.
To a stranger, To a friend
To give in such a way that has no end.

To be bold, to be brave.
It is the thinking that the heart can still be saved
And the darkness can come quick
The Dangers in the Anger and the hanging on to it.

We are Love
We are One
We are how we treat each other when the day is done.
We are Peace
We are War
We are how we treat each other and Nothing More

Tell me what it is that you see
A world that's filled with endless possibilities?
Heroes don't look they used to, they look like you do.

Photographers: On your wide angle lens, what filters do you use? 

7 deviants said I don't use no stinkin' filters.
5 deviants said Poloraizer: some experts do not recommend their use on wide angle lenses, but I've had good results.
4 deviants said What the hell is is a filter? Like...for your coffee machine?
3 deviants said I use them, but will tell you ALLLL about them in a comment.
1 deviant said UV filters.
No deviants said ND filter. Don't leave home without it.
No deviants said Glass enhancers. (this is what I want, but would like some advice on if it is worth it or just enticing camera porn.)

I wish I were independently wealthy so I could go on holiday all year :D Wouldn't that be a wonderful life for a hobbyist photographer? Unfortunately, that hasn't happened (yet) so as they say, all good things come to an end. But I was blessed to spend twenty-two days on the road with my kids, driving through and exploring thirteen different states here in the USA.  To say it was amazing is a definite understatement.  I think it is so important as a mom to show my kids as much of the world as I can. I do not want them to fall into the trap of thinking where they grew up is where they HAVE to plant themselves. Needless-to-say, my middle son has said he may have found a home in the Utah desert. What a bittersweet thought for me.

Anyhoo, I met some awesome people, strangers who I will remember for a very long time. (And you were right, you know who, about that thing--that thing about the purity of strangers and the value of our interactions with them.) Here is a shout out to you Sally and Terry from England!!! Retired teachers who travel the US every year because they say "we" always make them feel at home. :heart: I will hold that hour (yeah, and hour) we all spent chatting at Mormon Row in my heart for a very long time.

I have too many photos. :D

You all will get to see some of them.

I doubt you want to see the lot. LOL.

Oh, and you know what else I learned on this trip?? Fate is a fickle mistress. As I traveled America, I never lost ONE sock. Not of mine or the kids. But you know what I did lose?? My glasses, a pair of flip flops, the base for my electric tooth brush and the charger for my phone (no worries. broke my phone in Idaho and had to get a new one before I went to Utah. It came with two chargers, lol.)

And I lost a little bit of my heart in the jagged rocky lands, rolling prairies, steaming clear streams, stunning high deserts, gently swaying hills and abundant fields of grains. It was an experience of a lifetime, one I won't soon forget. One I highly recommend.

Thanks to everyone who helped me get ready with advice and tips. I appreciate you and your time very much!!

**since dA took away my ability to tell you I am a "Wise Ass" I feel it is my duty to add it here. :nod: Just so we are all on the same page.**

About myself...humm...what to say to make things seem interesting...humm...
1) I don't like journal taggy things. Please don't try, 'cause I'll just ignore it.
2) I'm honest as hell, that is one big thing.
3) I'm real. A flesh and blood thinking female.
So. If you are adverse to things like severe honesty from real people, I think you might want to just smile and wave. :):wave: and then :sprint:
