This is one of my favorite photos – I just wish I’d been shooting at a higher resolution at the time. This is a kitchen shot of the chef and his assistants at Otel Variete in Florence, Italy. The only thing it really foreshadowed was a fantastic dinner of regional Italian food, in large quantities…and […]
I love today’s prompt from Wordpress entitled “Mirrored”. Here are two recent iPhone pix from our progressive road trip. One taken on a gray day in Philadelphia, the other on a bright day in Manhattan. I’ve always been fascinated by reflections. Oh, and cities!
This week’s photo challenge asks that we look at the world through our own specific lens, that we try to communicate to others the way our own brains, eyes and souls see the world – and how our hand-eye coordination works (or doesn’t work) to translate that vision. Personally, I’m always drawn to an unexpected […]
For this week’s photo challenge, “In the Background”, I pulled this photo taken in Milan two years ago. I loved this in the moment, and I still like it. I love the movement of the woman in the foreground, the screaming man on the ad panel in the background, and the reflection of the bicyclist […]

The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge has inspired me to rummage through my photos for what’s been shot “from above”. Here’s one of my favorites. This is a serene view of a single boat floating on the Sea of Galilee, in Tiberius, as the sun begins to set.
One of the best things about travel are the memories of course, and the photos you keep forever. I love going back over old photos and finding something that speaks to me all over again. This photo reminds me that sometimes a change of perspective changes everything.
Dawn, over at the blog Lingering Visions, has a thing for windows. Which got me thinking. Evidently I have a thing for windows, too. My sister pointed it out to me when she saw a cool photo my husband took in Venice. It was a photo of me looking out a window, taken from canal […]
