Thought to Ponder:  “You have reached the pinnacle of success as soon as you become uninterested in money, compliments, or publicity.” ~ Thomas Wolfe


1. Three Well Beings - September 20, 2013

I love this photo! My eye is drawn along the planks and pillars to the beautiful blue water and that always calls my name! You have a good eye. 🙂 I love the Thomas Wolfe quote, too. That’s a keeper!

This is one of my favorite photos. The asymmetrical symmetry appeals to me. It’s balanced . . . almost.

And the colors have just enough definition.

Andra did a Thomas Wolfe post this morning which re-minded me of this quote. I love it! Ego always wants MORE (MORE money, MORE compliments, MORE publicity, MORE attention). Seeing through its greedy eyes prevents us from ever reaching the pinnacle. The path to contentment lies not in getting MORE, but in wanting LESS.

I like the way you framed the shot to draw us toward the water.


nrhatch - September 20, 2013

Thanks, Janet. We were waiting for our “ship to come in” and take us for a ride around the bay ~ the light, colors, and lines suited my senses.

Striking photo, and fits the theme wonderfully.

nrhatch - September 20, 2013

As soon as I saw the theme, this photo popped into mind.

I really like the white against the blue. Thanks for sharing.

nrhatch - September 20, 2013

Yes. I don’t think the photo would be as compelling with gray sky and water as background.

5. sufilight - September 21, 2013

I felt peace as I looked at the blue, blue water and the white contrast of the pillars.

nrhatch - September 21, 2013

That’s the number one thought I have gazing on this shot ~> PEACE! Maybe everything will come together as a harmonious whole . . . at some point . . . if we’re patient.

Something’s wrong with me. You post a perfectly beautiful, peaceful photo, and the first thing that comes to mind is the saying, “take a long walk off a short pier.”

nrhatch - September 21, 2013

Bwahaha! Perfect reaction, Janna. Aargh, I see ye as a teller of pirate tales, matey! 😯

Do you know, Nancy, I have a canvas very like that on my bedroom wall. I just love the way it gives a window onto another perspective. Lovely post.

nrhatch - September 21, 2013

Very cool, Kate. The uprights frame the scene, much like a window ~ definitely a different perspective.

9. Booksphotographsandartwork - September 21, 2013

Beautiful! Love the contrast of the white and blue. And the framing of it by the posts.

nrhatch - September 21, 2013

Thanks, Linda. I’m glad this shot sprang to mind when I saw the WP Prompt.

10. Pix Under the Oaks - September 22, 2013

Very serene. So different to see white instead of the usual wood/stained pier/dock/walkway. Very pretty. I wouldn’t mind sitting at the end with my toes in the water!

nrhatch - September 22, 2013

Yes! A perfect spot for sitting with dipping and dangling toes.

11. shreejacob - September 23, 2013

For some reason that picture made me take in my breath sharply…it feels like it’s a bridge that goes on and on and one……

Love the quote too!!

nrhatch - September 23, 2013

That quote wandered into my field of vision the other day, and I shared it HERE, THERE, and lots of other places too.

This view draws me in . . . beckoning me to the end of the pier.

12. bluebee - September 24, 2013

That is a pattern for sore eyes – wouldn’t mind a dip.

nrhatch - September 24, 2013

Last one in’s a rotten egg! *splash*
