April 8th

The Seven Deadly Sins
PRIDE - is excessive belief in one's own abilities,
that interferes with the individual's recognition of the grace of God.
It has been called the sin from which all others arise.
Pride is also known as Vanity
My make up drawer is a mess!
I used to have it tidy and organised!
These days my make up gets put on as
an after thought so I suppose age may have
made me less vain.
However, I am still vain enough to alter this photo
so that it looks a bit 'arty',
rather than the mess it is! LOL
********
“Vanity and pride are different things,
though the words are often used synonymously.
A person may be proud without being vain.
Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves;
vanity, to what we would have others think of us.”
Jane Austen

I'm glad I've found your blog. There's so much to motivate me to try something different. The photographs are stunning and I love your choice of quotations. If you don't mind, I'll try some photos similar to yours must experient with shutter speed and water - and use some of the quotes.
