This part of the world is decked in heavy frost which catches the light, glittering and sparkling as you walk by. So this week’s theme is dedicated to everything that shimmers. It is also dedicated to the memory of Vladimir Brezina from windagainstcurrent.com who made the world shimmer brighter when he was in it. First up, a shimmering Fasching mask in Aachen.
Sequinned hearts shimmer on Seattle’s very special Holiday Tree.
Sunlight glinting off the lake waters of Atitlan in Guatemala.
Frost-covered foliage on a wintry walk in Ireland.
A stunning sculpture called Fluent Steps by Martin Blank, located outside the Tacoma Museum of Glass.

Gorgeous photos, especially that one of the Sheikh Zayed mosque in Abu Dhabi, wow. xxx
What a lovely tribute! I will not be contributing (yet) but have made a commitment tonight to continue photography in Vlad’s memory, with the help of a friend who has agreed to coach me. I love all of these, but the museum of glass most of all.

I love this theme Ailsa. Here’s my take on it ‘shimmer’
Lovely images that connected quite elegantly to the theme and then the two quotes you closed with were really icing on an already delicious cake. Nicely done, Harlon
