Endless

Never ending…. the candles go on….Mother to Daughter, life goes on. The world would be a very dark place without this endless cycle of love and light help us find our way.SONY DSC

These photos were taken at a Florida Flea Market while on a recent trip to be with my parents. A Flea Market is, for those who haven’t experienced one, an open-air market selling cheap and often second-hand goods. However, the goods these days are not always cheap and most of goods are no longer ‘second-hand’. This particular Flea Market has some very expensive wares and a lot of art along with the regular craft ‘goods’ and off the wall items. I wandered along until I came across these very beautiful mirrors, some were married with fountains and aquariums. In the photo above, This particular one I was taken with was adorned with candles. As I stopped to take the photos I had no idea I was taking a Mother-Daughter portrait as well (see above photo). Beautiful.

SONY DSC Mom on her own…equally as lovely.

Head on over to James’s place for more Weekend Reflections.

Also check out Aileni’s website to see more Monochrome Weekend photos from around the world.

You can also hop on over to Dipity Road to view more Finding the Beauty photos. (This is a new Meme for me. I first saw it on Jay’s ‘The Depp Effect’.  I find it a very compelling and worthwhile meme with endless opportunities to share the beauty I find in so many things with others.

  7. Oh, I love your reflections! You and your Mom - truly beautiful!

    You're right about the flea markets. It's the same over here - lots of not-so-cheap goods, some counterfeit goods too, often, and not very much in the way of real bargains. They still fascinate me though!

    Thanks for the link! :)

    So MANY great comments...thank you all so much! I love hearing what everyone thinks and appreciate the visits.

    Wish I had the time to talk with you all individually but I will just say Thank You to the whole and answer a few questions.

    James, C&L, mbkatc230, Serendipity, maiaT, Dianne,
    Yes I agree, of course as you can see, certainly this photo was made for B&W and as VioletSky said color would be too much of a distraction.

    Theresa,
    Yep the mother and daughter are my mom and myself...so they *do* know. :)

    Jay thanks...and you are welcome.

    Maureen,
    I love to look at antiques...have fun!
