They’re gnawing at my mind lately.
Day of the Dead Altar, San Antonio I’ve visited San Antonio once, and I was lucky enough to be there around the time of year when Day of the Dead, or DÃa de los Muerto, is celebrated. So in addition to getting to see such wonders as the Blue Hole […]
Piggy, Florence This little piggy went to the market, and he never came home. Instead, he became a rather ironic display piece. The meat slicer is the penny-pincher’s best friend. Roast your own meat and slice for a sandwich. It will definitely be short of the $8.99 per pound you […]
Stairs, St. Peter’s Basilica This picture is one of those literal pictures that doesn’t require too much story, too much explanation. Italy has any number of long, steep stairways that wind and curve their way up into the domes of various basilicas or towers. There was something special about this […]
Bird on a…, Sharjah Teeny, tiny bird, what world did you come from? Perched on twine… or is it a rope, and you’re not so tiny after all? Your head blends with the blue canvas you’re perched against. What is that called again? Never mind, it’s time to sit still […]
Elephant & Obelisk, Rome Oh when the elephants, come marching in! When the elephants come marrr-ching in! Oh how I want to be in that square, when the elephants come marching in! Elephant and Obelisk really has nothing to do with Louis Armstrong, but when I see this guy, he […]
Feet, Belur, India This photo holds a lot of meaning for me personally. This was taken when my husband and I were on our honeymoon in 2007. We had just had our second wedding in Bangalore and were traveling the countryside near by with his cousins. After a day or […]
Carmel-by-the-Sea might be one of my favorite places on earth. Come on, the name alone sounds enchanting. Add quirks like no addresses, and this place is like something from a fairy tale. I’ve spent a bit of time in front of the fireplaces that dot the courtyard of Hog’s Breath […]
Street Lamp, Rome Street Lamp, Rome is a reminder that sometimes you just need to look up. Even on an overcast day, with a chilly breeze, there’s loveliness to be found. That’s it. A short story suits a minimal photograph quite well, me thinks.
When In Rome I had originally called this image Tchotchke View of St. Peter’s, but I think I should change the title to When In Rome. This tongue-in-cheek phrase (pun intended) seems to fit the mood of the photo a little better. A lot of my feelings around this photo […]
