Weekly Photo Challenge: All That Glimmers

This week the Daily Post has challenged us to show our photos of SHINY THINGS.

You can click the underlined link to get to a host of shining photos.

Here are my photographs and thoughts on the matter.

“All that glisters is not gold;
Often have you heard that told:
Many a man his life has sold
But my outside to behold:
Gilded tombs do worms enfold
Had you been as wise as bold,
Your in limbs, in judgment old,
Your answer had not been in’scroll’d
Fare you well: your suit is cold.’ Cold, indeed, and labour lost: Then, farewell, heat and welcome, frost!” Shakespeare, Merchant Of Venice

But al thyng which that shyneth as the gold / Nis nat gold, as that I have herd it told” Geoffrey Chaucer, Yeoman’s Tale

The moments captured in shining brilliance may not be gold we can buy the world with, but the world itself could hardly compare with even a moment of memory captured in the glare of such a sun. JE Lillie
