What a Wonderful World


What a Wonderful World
Songwriters: George David Weiss and George Dougless aka Bob Thiele

 I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom, for me and you
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.




I see skies of blue, and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.



 The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces, of people going by
I see friends shaking hands, saying how do you do
They're really saying, I love you.

 

 I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more, than I'll never know
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

 
 Yes I think to myself, what a wonderful world.
Oh yeah...


This week I have been working
on capturing love when I shoot.
Not so worried about settings
or weather
or stress : )
Just finding love!



Does anyone know how I can make the videos bigger?
I am at a loss!
Happy Weekend Lovelies
May you be surrounded by a wonderful world.

These are gorgeous pictures! I love how you mixed the family pics (beautiful!!) with the blossoms. And they are perfect with the words!

OMGOSH! That baby is DELICIOUS! his cheeks! Those big dark eyes!
LOVE this!

ps For videos: On Youtube, when you click to embed the video, it will open up a box that will give you the code, beneath that, it has size choices.

That song always makes me cry....but that baby! Oh I want to play with taht baby!

Tracy P. said...

This one totally needed the music to go with it! I love music! Just not on auto play. Thanks for providing. ;-)

There is one other thing you could try to make your video bigger. The html you embedded that is your video probably has "height=___px" and "width=___px" within the code. They may or may not be together. Get rid of the height one, and make the width maybe 500px. Make larger or smaller as you wish.

so beautiful, Becky. All of them.

Maddy said...

I love that song and the photos, as always! I can't tell because they block videos at my job...is it a you tube video? If so, there's an option to change the dimensions of it to fit your blog.

It is a wonderful world, isn't it?

I adore this song and the photos you placed with each verse were lovely! It reminds me to be thankful for all that we have and stay true to live each day to the fullest. Have a wonderful weekend!

I loved the challenge you gave yourself...and of course the photos are so gorgeous...I think I am in love with your little girl's braids!

Creatively done!

LL Cool Joe said...

What a wonderful set of photos!

I find that if you use the embed link on You Tube and just copy and paste it onto your post it will be the larger, standard size.

SavvyMama said...

awwwwwwwwwww...beautiful photos! thanks for dropping by my Macro!

Teachinfourth said...

It is a wonderful world...if we choose to look for those good parts.

Mrs4444 said...

See, now this is proof that we really do need math IRL. Look at your html code of the video and notice the dimensions. Make a fraction of them, with the smaller number on top. Multiply the top and bottom numbers by .20 (or you can experiment) and replace the original fraction with the new one (rounded off, of course). That's how I do it, anyway...Good luck.

And BTW, you succeeded--I saw/felt the love! :)

Robin Norgren said...

Hi there! coming over from Studio JRU. There should be an option when you get ready to embed the video where you can choose what size you want the box to be. Also, when you embed it into blogger you can look at the actual code you embedded and change the size there as well. Hope that helps.

Gorgeous!
