O N E


Welcome to PICTURE PERFECT

a weekly photo-blog

Each week a theme will be posted up on Wednesday, and you are invited to put up your best picture

with that theme in mind, it should be just

 ONE and ORIGINAL,

 not off the internet,

then post a comment on this page

so that everyone can link to your page and see your pic.

By all means mention your camera and lens used!

Open that page for viewing for all...and visit as many as you can!

The entries will close at midnight on Friday.

Most importantly....have fun out there!

oOo

 

 

O N E

taken last night with my sony cybershot


 

All it takes is one flicker of a flame

 to start a fire, warm a heart,

wipe out darkness and conquer gloom.

Just one tree to start a forest,

 and one drop of water to form an ocean.

Just one step at a time

on any particular day

soon becomes

a firm path, and then a journey.

Just one smile is all it takes

to start

a friendship or guide a soul.

just one word

to ensure hope or raise a spirit.

Just one....

  19. I have just read a blog from the Multiply Staff: there will be a couple of hours maintenance time therefore it won't be possible for us to log into Multiply. It will occur at 1 am ET - so if they are telling the truth (hopefully - or else I'll be making a fool of myself right now) - it will occur in less than 30 minutes... Well, I guess I have to do the round later tonight. See you all soon!!!

    *chuckle* It's almost 5pm here now and things are ok - the maintenance only lasted for 2 hours... it turned out that I don't have to wait till tonight to do the 1st round. *smile*
    O and since there is no Guest Book - I'm saying it here: Thank you for the visit to my blog - Heather. Much appreciated...
    *hugs*

  20. So true.
    It all starts with one.
    You really are a romantic person.
    And it's a blessing, cos not everybody can express their feelings like that. I don't know what is holding them back.

    I have mine up and running now.
    Come and take a look.

    BTW, I think the maintenance is already finished now.
    It gave me some announcements several minutes ago, telling me that I couldn't access Multiply for some moments, but as you see now, I can leave a comment here and posted my Pic Perfect for this week in my blog.
    I guess that means that we can enjoy this blogging land again, as usual (^o^)v

  21. Another theme where nothing springs directly to mind for me ~ but I'm determined to come up with something this week!

    ReplyDelete
  22. This is such a pretty picture, but your words are even better still, it make you think. And you are right, it doesn't take a lot to make a change or brighten someone's life. Will have mine up later.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Had a great idea for last week but no time to pull it off. This week should be interesting, so many ways to do this one.

  77. Thank you for your comment on mine :) I appreciate it !!!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Thank you for your comment. It means a lot to me.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Please people....if you have a photo up and it is not open to the public, at least open it to friends of friends, so that we can all view. It is very frustrating trying to see everyone's photos to go to a site where the blog is not even OPEN. Just for ONE blog each week, open it to friends of friends.

    Heather whilst I am here, I want to also thank you for all of your efforts all year long with these themes. You know we all love it and can never even wait until Friday. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Love you girl!
