Beauty on the Weblog


What is beauty? Well, I don't have the answer to that question, but it certainly seems to be in the eye of the beholder and Mr William Hogarth seems to feel it has something to do with variety, from the picture above. Whatever.
Beauty on the Weblog does exactly what the name suggests: It showcases beautiful things that people have posted on their blogs. When you visit you are always assured of finding something which fits the description, be it photos, poems or prose.

Imagine my surprise when the owner of this great little blog contacted me and asked if they could feature something from my blog! I felt very flattered and a little intrigued to see what would end up being featured. Go and visit
Beauty on the Weblog (click on the name) and see what was chosen for yourself. One of the photos picked is a favourite of mine.

Anyway, I am still busy and an all work and little play kind of gal at the moment and still not able to blog as much as I would like, though I have tried to visit most of you this week. Rather than bore you all silly with dull stories of work and paper writing for my MBA, I thought I would direct you to a couple of my blogging friends:


CrazieQueen over at
CrazieQueens Palace is looking for a name for her new bear which will be her mascot for the Walk of Life' she participates in to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness. Can you help?

Sarch over at
'Sarch's Blog' is a biker from Alabama in the US and is also looking for a name, this time for his new Goldwing bike. Go on over and apply your creativity here too. Links as ever, are in bold.

Another reader can always produce a good name, when one has been striving for ages!

Michele sent me.

I just went to visit Beauty on the web and saw your wonderful photos. Congratulations, your work deserves to be shown and shared.

Hi Bob-kat!

So happy to have your photos in my blog. Really provides a lovely contrast! I'm looking into buying a new camera myself after seeing everyone's incredible shots! What camera do you use?

Shari said...

Nice photos. It must really feel good when someone asks to use your work.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Michele sent me here to say hello.

How ironic that I wrote about beauty on my blog yesterday. I get to see it in my wife and kids every day. It comes from within, and I'm surrounded by it.

I've shared my name suggestions on both sites, but I think I'll mull it over and drop back in for another go. Friday nights are good for some extra creativity!

Carmi said...

Oh, and congrats on having those incredible b&w images recognized. Well deserved: you know how much I absolutely adore your photographer's view of the world.

Ramona said...

Thanks for the link to a beautiful blog! And the pictures of yours she posted were utterly beautiful!

Congratulations on the photos! Mind you, they are *beautiful* shots...
I suggested "Leo" (reminding us that there is something after Cancer) for the bear --- but I like lots of the other suggestions better....

Michele reminded me to visit today,

R. Sherman said...

Stay sane, dear. Just think how rich you'll be once you've got the MBA on the wall.

Cheers.

Sarch said...

BK,

Congratulations on getting your blog recognized! I love the pictures she chose to showcase. You and your blog are very deserving of the attention.

Thank you for mentioning my quest for a proper name for my Gold Wing. The quest continues!

Michele sent me!
When I commented on her site I didn't realize how that entire thing worked. I didn't even realize it would send people to my site. I was only commenting because someone had left me a message that Michele had sent them. It wasn't until someone emailed me and informed me that I wasn't following directions that I realized I had skipped you. I'm terribly sorry. I'm new at these blog games.

I enjoyed reading your blog and again, I'm very sorry!

moon said...

Great choice, I love that photo..congrats on being chosen! I also enjoyed going over there to see the other stuff of beauty on there.

Melody said...

What a great blog that contacted you... I loved those photos when you initally posted them - the b&w works so well... Well done.

craziequeen said...

Hey babes :-)

Michele sent me to say hello this lunchtime :-)

I got two surprises at the Company Banquet last night - a gift from Lord Hungerford to say thank you for all the money I raised through the mint - and I got my promotion early in recognition......I am now a yeoman - that means I get BUTTONS! :-)

Have ytou ever seen a "TWILIGHT ZONE" called "THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER" ? It is one of the classic original TW's....It is about our perceptions of Beauty...It is really a fabulous comment on what IS or IS NOT Beautiful....depending on who sets the standards, etc....
Worth seeing....!

The lights on my Deck are goiung out...Boo Hoo...And it is a HUGE Chore, re-doing them...So, I don't know what I will do, once they are all out, again....

Hi Bob, This is a quote from Kahlil Gibran on Beauty. I hope you enjoy.
Warm Regards, Peg-Leg Lil
"Beauty is that which attracts your soul, and that which loves to give and not to receive. When you meet Beauty, you feel that the hands deep within your inner self are stretched forth to bring her into the domain of your heart. It is the magnificence combined of sorrow and joy; it is the Unseen which you see, and the Vague which you understand, and the Mute which you hear - it is the Holy of Holies that begins in yourself and ends vastly beyond your earthly imagination."
(K. Gibran)
