The Sweetest Hours Fly the Fastest (Photos from the Museum)

Deb, at Travel with Intent (here), offers a weekly quotation for bloggers to connect with images and/or words.

This week I join in with some museum photos and some words – thanks to Debbie Smyth for hosting her challenges to give us ideas and spark inspiration. 

The quote this week is:

“All our sweetest hours fly fastest.”

Virgil

 

 

For some reason I just love this photo and this is the first photo that came to mind when Deb shared the Virgil quote. I was actually trying to get a photo with a distant view of the painting to the right (see the bartender leaning with the sweet smile?). That painting is one of my favorite “work related” pieces of art. It is Paul Sample’s painting called Spring Song, my 2018 post with it is HERE,and it reminds me how work can be sweet – and how times of “flow” are sweet).  Anyhow, this couple walked right into my frame. I like the feet lifted – the slight blur – the position of the different heads – the couple – the statue, the bartender. And the layout of the room with distant chair.

Love the tattoo leg – and see the man taking a selfie? Check out the next image…
He asked me to take his photo – he was from Nigeria – we did not really chat – but taking that photo started my grabbing a few more photos…. see the slideshow

This man was talking for a long time on his phone with the flashlight turned ON. We were all discussing this – because it was messing with our peripheral vision – we could detect the bright light. We were wondering if he forgot it was on or if there was a reason he left the phone flashlight on? Did the flashlight interfere with Big Brother cameras – or just interfere with some frequencies? Perhaps not…. but we wondered

This is Natasha, we talked for just a few minutes – and her sweetness brought a smile. And how about those teacups, Trent, you often feature those coffee mugs on your weekend posts – and maybe the visitors who have tea would not want a coffee mug (totally kidding).

In closing: 

If Virgil is correct, and if all of “our sweetest hours fly fastest” – then let us savor more. 

Let’s enjoy life, find joy from intrinsic things that REALLY fill our cup. Because extrinsic things don’t really meet those deeper needs.

Let’s find meaning in our time off, and sometimes that might mean celebrating art or taking photos to capture things in our slice of the world. 

Let’s make time for enjoying what brings us the sweetest hours worth savoring.

  1. I do have some pretty tea cups. Maybe some day I’ll feature one of them 😉 As to the top photo, it looks like the guy and statue are sharing a private glance. She was watching him as he walked by, he just noticed her look and turned. There was electricity when their eyes met. The woman walking behind is oblivious to the entire exchange, looking elsewhere. It was over in a flash, but you captured it 😉

  2. The chairs do have an interesting style. They look comfortable. It is nice when museums have spots to rest. I usually find things that catch my attention and tend to stay longer than most, but my feet get tired.

    1. Thanks – I totally thought of you and your challenge with these chairs – and these were comfortable
      – and I was surprised someone left their phone charging like that

  3. Do you know I’ve never taken a photo inside an art museum? I shy away from doing that for reasons I can’t explain. Your photos of the people who are inside the museum show that art can bring the world together.

    1. Thanks ally – and only in the last handful of years have I been taking photos inside the museum and other places – and I am mixed on how I feel about some of my people photos – I only took a handful tris night and sometimes I don’t take any-
      And good ol melting pot for sure
      😊

  4. Having just watched Norman Jewison’s “Rollerball”, those orange chairs and that sofa remind me of something pulled right off the set.

    As for Virgil, I think we can all be thankful he ditched law for poetry. Nothing against lawyers, but things worked out just fine for the rest of us with his decision.

    I’m forever impressed with tattoo sleeves. Especially considering I am still . . STILL contemplating a single tat.

    1. Thanks for the nice comment and that tattoo leg looks like it took a lot of time and money…
      And I bet she is not done –
      And I say go for the tattoo (but it is hard decision – I have none)

      1. That leg is a nice vacation. That’s what I kept thinking to myself.

        Oh no, these tat peeps are a work in progress alright.

        I don’t either. But Linds B wants to get matching tats. Personally, I think it’s her excuse just to get her next one, LOL.

  5. Lots of artwork here Yvette, especially the tatted leg. A lot of pain to make that artwork. I didn’t realize that smartphones had a flashlight on them – wow. I don’t have a smartphone and learn new things about them every day.
    I love this quote you used which is a version of Tempus Fugit (time flies):
    “All our sweetest hours fly fastest.” -Virgil

      1. I have used tempus fugit for the time change in the past. I have a clock in my room and in tiny letters it says tempus fugit. Noticed it after years and years of it being in my mom’s room on her nightstand. I guess I was not very observant – a flashlight on the phone is handy to have!
