Photo of the Month: Illuminations

I will always love this photo I took of the Pantheon in central Rome. During the day the piazza is hot and crowded. But when the sun goes down the city vibe makes Rome even more magical.  Continue reading

Photo of the Month: Time

I came across this clock on a daytrip to Laura, a small town in regional South Australia. Although  I am not a regular church-goer, I still believe there is a higher being to watch and guide us through life. In what form that higher being takes will be different for everyone. Continue reading

Photo of the Month: Camel Train

Camels are an intriguing animal and  not temperamental as I discovered during my camel ride at Uluru last year. They are actually gentle and friendly. My camel, name Wally, was a great example of a placid camel.  He was happy to follow along on our mini sunset camel train. Continue reading

Photo of the Month: Leprechaun Spotting

Everyone kept telling me that leprechauns did not exist, but for a long time I had been curious about the little green man.  So last year I was on a mission to find and meet a leprechaun on my trip to the emerald isle. After a week of travelling around Ireland, I was successful in locating a leprechaun on the streets of Dublin. Continue reading

Photo of the Month: Hawaii’s Giant Turtles

This month’s photo was taken a few years ago on my holiday in Hawaii.  While walking along Punalu’u Black Sand Beach on the Big Island of Hawaii I stopped to watch this beautiful sea turtle take up prime position on the pebbly surface for a rest. Continue reading

Photo of the Month: Garden Art

The quirky and unusual always make for interesting travel tales.  This photo was taken during a rest stop on a tour across Canada.  It was across the road from a McDonald’s of all places.  I loved how creative the gardeners were, not to mention patient – as they shaped bushes into statues of people.  And yes, that is an actual jacket the bush is wearing. Continue reading

Photo of the Month: Paris Time Machine

It’s not everyday that a time machine passes you by on the trendy streets of Paris.  Yet that is what happened as I was taking a walk through the Marais district.  The Marais district is a historic part of Paris home to many old, aristocratic style buildings rich in architecture.  It also houses a number of smaller, quaint museums including the popular Musee Picasso.

Quirky and interesting characters are what adds colour to any travel destination.  Quite often you remember them more than some of the most popular attractions you just visited.  This guy certainly attracted some attention and became the most photographed “object” of the hour.

Photo of the Month: Stormy Skies

There is something about a dark, stormy sky that piques one’s curiosity.  It has an almost haunting, eerie feel to it.  That if we let the darkness win it may overcome us.  This photo was taken on a summer day late last year where the day had started out perfect. Continue reading
