Photo Memories of the Azure Window of Gozo

Posted on 4 CommentsPosted in Gozo, Malta, Photography

Last week, I woke up to sad news that The Azure Window of Gozo was swallowed by the sea. Created by the sea thousands of years ago and destroyed by the sea in a powerful storm.  While experts had said it was fragile, I hadn’t realized its days were numbered.  I visited this tiny island […]

Flytographer London Photo Shoot- I Was No Longer a Phantom

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Activities/Experiences, London, Photography

If you ever wondered what it would be like to be a model, well I had a taste of it recently and its hard work.  “You did what?” my friend asked when I casually mentioned the professional Flytographer London photo shoot I arranged for me & Mom.  “You HATE being in photos” and he was […]

“I’ve Loved the Stars Too Fondly to Be Fearful of the Night” – Galileo The Best Nights are Usually Unplanned, Random and Spontaneous Stars Can’t Shine Without Darkness There are so many great quotes to find about the “Night” FriFotos theme, the above are just a few.  Each reminds me about what I love about […]

Easy Safari Photo Tips – The Art of Nature in Africa

Posted on 8 CommentsPosted in Activities/Experiences, Africa, My Favorites, Photography

My earliest memories of my first camera used flash cubes and 110 film cartridges.  I then graduated to the Polaroid One Step camera which with a few waves in the air (like you just don’t care) the image magically appeared.  For a grade schooler in the 1970’s, this was so cool.  When I was in […]

The South Coast of Iceland – Glaciers, Waterfalls and Black Sand Beaches

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Activities/Experiences, Iceland, Photography, Travel

The fog was all I could see from the mini bus as we left Reykjavik headed toward the South Coast of Iceland.  It was so thick I was reminded of my Wild Wicklow tour in Dublin last year where I was in awe of the driver navigating the road that we could barely see. It […]

Gorgeous Photos of Sydney Australia as I Chase the Sun

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Australia, Photography, Sydney, Travel

For a month, my travels had been plagued with rain in both Dublin and London and while not quite surprising in either city, I was looking forward to my Australia trip – my suitcase was packed with sunscreen, flip flops and summer clothes (my sneakers were thrown in last minute for the Bridge Climb as […]

Gorgeous Photos of Gozo, the Relaxing Holiday in Malta

Posted on 5 CommentsPosted in Gozo, Malta, My Favorites, My Thoughts and Musings, Photography, Travel

“What do we do on Gozo” I asked my friend.  He replied “we relax”.  Relax?  As a solo traveler for so long, relax isn’t usually in my vocabulary as I try to see as much as I can in a short period of time. I’m not quite “check the box” traveler but the over the […]

Photos of Iceland – Awesome Iceland Landscapes to Inspire Wanderlust

Posted on 4 CommentsPosted in Europe, FriFotos on Twitter, Iceland, Photography

Living and working in the city, my daily landscape consists of skyscrapers (my office is on the 38th floor), concrete and lots of traffic on the commute.  When I travel, I feel that I can breathe and relax in the landscapes of mountains, coastlines and greenery. I can savor the wonder of nature through waterfalls, […]

Going Round and Round in Paris, London and Seattle #FriFotos

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in FriFotos on Twitter, London, London Sightseeing, Paris, Seattle

This week’s #FriFotos theme is “Circles” …..I thought round and round…..then my mind wandered to the Dead or Alive song “You Spin Me Round (like a Record)” before landing on the Ferris Wheel (don’t ask how my mind associates things).  Many cities have added Ferris Wheels to attract tourists and provide incredible city views (who […]

The New Zealand Quandary – Milford Sound vs Doubtful Sound

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in FriFotos on Twitter, New Zealand, Photography, Travel

We all want the best and when it comes to travel there are so many confusing “best of” options.  This week’s #FriFotos theme is “Best” and I keep thinking how many times I went in search of the best and found something better.  Yesterday’s post, I went in search of the best restaurant in Melbourne […]
