NYC Public Library

Today’s photo is from our last trip to New York City.  One of our stops on that trip was the Library.  I know, I know.  The Library!!  But look at this architecture.  How could I skip this facility?  It’s a great example of what we, humans, are capable of creating.  If you like this type of thing and get to NYC, make this free location a “must do.”

Sailing in Barbados

MJ and I love Barbados.  What’s not to love about that wonderful country, location and people?  I took this photo on one of our excursions.  I love the view of the sailboat in front of the beach.  They told us that the white home in the background is Rihanna’s home.  I don’t know if I believe them because they probably say that about every large house on the island to the tourist.  But…maybe they’re telling the truth????

Aft Deck

This is a photo I took of the aft deck on the Carnival Vista on its maiden voyage.  I should be clear, this was the maiden voyage with passengers (paying customers).  I’m sure they did some sea test before allowing the passengers on the ship.   Our stateroom was the upper deck in the middle.  The area in the foreground of the photo is the Havana Bar & Pool area.  What a cool new feature on the Carnival ships.

Sedona

This post is from our Arizona trip.  We spent a few days up in the Sedona area.  What a cool place.  If you haven’t been, it is worth the trip.  I don’t normally share photos with people in them, except for sport photos.  But I liked the people in this photo because it gives you some perspective about the scale of this mountain range.

The Colosseum

During our Rome Italy visit, we had a short stop at the Colosseum.  Unfortunately, our time there was peak tourist time….so there was people everywhere.  The forced me to try very hard to capture it in a way that was unique and didn’t have tourists in the way.  Thus this photo of the Colosseum in a way you’ve never probably seen before.

Puffin

Tonight’s post is a photo I took of a puffin in Iceland a few years back.  I loved that trip and would love to go back.   Everything about that trip was great, including the puffins.

Manhattan Bridge

Today’s blog post if one of my favorite photos from our last New York City trip.  Like in the past, I went out on a solo photo walk at night to capture some great cityscapes at and after sunset.  This time I walk over the Manhattan Bridge and found this great shooting location.  I hope you like it.

The Caryatides

Again, a long delay between posts.  Sorry about that!  My work and professional life have been super busy.  I’ll try to be better, but I don’t expect things to slow down until the end of July.  

Anyway, today’s photo is The Caryatides (Maidens), which is the most interesting part of the Erechtheion on the south Portico.  The six statues are an example of excellent craftsmanship.  This great structure (art) is part of the Acropolis in Athens Greece.

Simpson Bay

Tonight’s post is a sunset from Simpson Bay in St. Maarten.  I attended a sunset cocktail party on the rooftop of our hotel.  That gave me an opportunity to capture this great scene as it happened.  I’m ready to go back to the Caribbean.  At this point, I don’t have any future trips booked.  That will have to change soon.

Dubrovnik

Our day in Dubrovnik Croatia was a cloudy over cast day.  Regardless we made the best of it and it helped with photography, which is normally very hard during the bright sun during the middle of the day.

Dubrovnik is a beautiful walled medieval city.  I loved it and would go back in a heartbeat.  This view is from the top of the medieval wall looking across this small bay at another costal fort.

Red Frog Pub

Like all of our cruises, I usually take one or two mornings and get up at around 5am.  I do that just to photograph the ship with no one else around.  That’s how I captured this photo of the Red Frog Pub on the Carnival Breeze.  I love how these pubs are designed on the Carnival Cruise ships, but honestly I’ve never stepped foot in the pub while it is open.

Valletta Harbor

This stop in Malta was amazing.  I’d put Vellatta on my “return to” list in a second.  Although next time, I want to see more of the country.  This city had everything you’d want.  Clean, safe, historical, beautiful, and just a whole lot of fun.  I hope you like the photo that can’t do justice to actually standing there viewing it with your own eyes.
