Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece


I chose these pictures for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece as I love scenery and consider it both man’s masterpieces of creation complimenting the natural beauty of many vistas.  The first is photo taken in Ravello, Italy.  It shows the creativity of man, building homes and agriculture in nearly impossible locations.

This next photo wass taken in Montserrat, Spain.  Absolutely stunning scenery.  If you are in Barcelona, you MUST go to Montserrat.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh


Nothing fresher than a glacier in Alaska. The prompt this week is Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh.  The definition provided is “the definition for fresh has a bit of a fork in it – it’s a state (new, recent, previously unknown) and it’s a taste or sensation (cool, sweet, invigorating, refreshing). Fresh is definitely this cantaloupe (“melone”) granita I enjoyed recently here in Italy. It cooled me down immensely (and it didn’t hurt that it was delicious, too!) “.  Doesn’t fit, BUT, I have an out.

“In a new post specifically for this challenge, share a photo which means FRESH to you”

This fits very well.  Fresh can me refreshingly cool.  Taken as a panorama shot on my iPhone.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern


This week we have The Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern.  We have seen a lot of patterns in our travels, clouds, lights, architecture, but, to date, we have seen nothing more interesting than the Mezquita de Córdoba in Cordoba, Spain.  A unique structure that melds a mosque, converted to a cathedral.  Originally started as a church, it was converted to a mosque after the Moors conquered this part of Spain.  It was largely rebuilt and then, when the area was retaken by the Spanish, it was again converted to a church.    A very interesting background and a stunning combination of various architecture.

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above


This week we have The Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above.  The obvious one is the above shot of food.  I chose to not be food for this guy and took its picture “From Above”.  This is a salt water crocodile, one of many found near Cozumel, Mexico.  Very impressive animals.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unique


The Weekly Photo Challenge is titled Unique.  We were driving around in Winnipeg, Manitoba and noticed this in the sky.  A perfect X formed by 2 contrails. Thought it was cool, and had never seen it before, at least this defined.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Love


The challenge this week is love.  So much to think about.  I love travel, sailing, Lori, my sons, blogging, family.  After some heavy thought, I decided that the winning category is beer.  The photo that best describes beer is these shots I took in Bruges, Belgium.  Every beer brewed in Belgium, and it’s special glass, has been put on display in a liquor store in Bruges.  HMMMMMMM Beeeeeeerrrr!!!!!
