Photo Friday: Interiors

I traveled to Turkey with my mom, aunt, uncle and a couple of their friends in May 2001 for a tour/sailboat trip. It’s one of my favorite places to visit.

While in Istanbul, we had a guided tour of the city and one of the places we saw was the gorgeous mosque, Hagia Sophia. I took this photo through the doorway to a small library off the main space. The Byzantine mosaics and woodwork in Turkey are amazingly beautiful. I brought home a few ceramic pieces I bought in town as a reminder.

Photo Friday: Luminous

In 2001, I went to a conference in San Francisco; this was the view from my hotel room. San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in the world in my opinion. The last time I was there was for my sister Andrea’s wedding to Forrest two years ago. Dan and I had a great time exploring Chinatown the day before the wedding. So much fun.

Photo Friday: Downward

Several years ago, Dan and I, along with my good friend Barbara, took a trip to the Grand Canyon. I took this photo at the South Rim of a group of tourists with a guide. It’s really hard to portray the Grand Canyon in photos. It’s so majestic and almost seems to surround you, even when you’re standing on the rim, that it’s easy to understand why it’s one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

This is my contribution to Photo Friday. This week’s theme is Downward.

Photo Friday: Curvature

Heh, I almost forgot I had a blog ;-) I take a lot of pictures, of food and other stuff, and then I don’t get around to posting them here. Going to try to change that.

So here’s my contribution to the Photo Friday photo challenge for this week – Curvature. I took this photo in Pisa, Italy, during our 25th-anniversary trip there in 2009. This is the arch over the main entry door to the Pisa Baptistery, with a statue of the Madonna and child.

Photo Friday: Dark

Several years ago, Dan and I visited Barbados over Christmas. During the trip, we took the 80-mile tour around the perimeter of the island; one stop was Animal Flower Cave, named for the sea anemones that grow in the water there. It was pretty dark inside the cave, but several openings offered interesting views of the outside.

Photo Friday: Stand Out

My contribution to this week’s Photo Friday photography challenge, with the topic Stand Out, is another photo from our trip to Ireland in 2003.

This is part of the cemetery around Corcomroe Abbey in County Clare. It was a misty, overcast day, as it tends to be in Ireland. Of course, the benefit is the brilliantly green grass. We had a great time there and would love to go back.
