Thematic Photographic - 260 Treasured

"Happiness is your own treasure because it lies within you."  - Prem Warat


Carmi has surely delighted me with his theme of "Treasured" this week.  What a perfect word, because as Carmi's theme photo shows us, something treasured,  lies within the heart and soul of the beholder.  The unknowing onlooker, probably will never grasp the true meaning of Carmi's capture.

So what treasure have I caught on camera?

Such a delight it is
to happen by
a snowman
in the middle of
Knowing, he'll live forever.

What a treasure that is!

Truly a treasure
it was
this day at the fair
in the year 2013
to see Herbie,
and to know folks care that he's there.
Long live Herbie.
What a treasure this song is
from one of Herbie's Love Bug Movies!
check it out here
"It's not what you do, it's how you do.
Be anything you want to be.
It's not what you got, it's how you use it!
You be you and I'll be me!"

No matter where you catch it-
There is one spectacle grander than the sea,
that is the sky;
there is one spectacle grander than the sky,
that is the interior of the soul.
Victor Hugo

I love that last shot and the Hugo quote!.. and that VW is definitely one- too bad they've tweaked up the latest model.. loved the original.

KBF- Me too, they even had the latest model at the fair too, but the old Herbie is my true Herbie, what a great movie and theme to grow up on!

"Home is where our story begins" I love that quote, it is a treasure. The snowman made me smile also.

"Home is where our story begins" is my pick of these - and the lovely sky!

I've never seen a Herbie movie - obviously a big gap in my education...

Have a great day, Karen :)

I am surprised that a car like Herbie could be so popular.

Oh, that V-W Bug is taking me back to a major crush in my last year of high school. His "Bug" was bright orange!

I can always count on you, Karen, to remind me why life is as rich and treasured as it is. You find the beauty in things most people would miss. You inspire me to continue to do the same in my own life. Thank you!
