I am sad to share that this will be the last weekly photo challenge from The Daily Post, titled All Time Favorites. Some of my all time favorite photos were taken while on a 10 day trip, to the Big Island of Hawaii. Take a look… My thoughts are with the Big Island families that […]
This week’s photo challenge of the Daily Post had the topic ‘liquid’. I absolutely love taking pictures with the sea, a river or lake, rain and other liquid components. But most of the times the actual liquid element is not main part of the composition. However, sometimes, I do love taking pictures where the liquid […]
Today’s theme is “Liquid.” We’ve been getting lots of that recently in the form of rain, rain, and more rain, although this shot of a flooded parking lot was taken some years ago. I know some of you have seen it and a few have written a 100-word story about it when it was a […]

The most awakening moment in my life is when I realised life is all about making choices. We are what we choose to become. The decision of what we want, is solely ours. There are people who have made bad choices in life and later regret. But the choice is ours to either move on […]
“Sunrise, how lovely it seems to see from my window a sky full of dreams.” Frank Sinatra Those who know me might think I would focus on sunsets in response to Erica’s Rise/Set challenge, since my reputation for disliking early morning is well known. Never let it be said, however, that I cannot “rise” to […]
Sunrise/sunset is the topic for the Weekly WordPress Photo Challenge. This is an ideal topic for me, as I seem to spend a lot of my time taking photos of stunning sunsets when we are in a Greece for the summer. They are always different from each other, and I never tire of experiencing them. […]
A few weeks ago I went to the mountains with some friends. We chose Mt. Rigi, which is very close to Zurich and has a lot of winter hiking trails well maintained during all seasons (I have already shown you photos from Rigi here). When I was planning this trip, I imagined the view from […]
The Weekly Photo Challenge is Story. I was down at the Lake Huron shoreline at sunrise and found some juvenile Red Knot on autumn migration. At sunrise one feeds and one watches me. More feeding. Time for a bath. A scratch. And a nap.
As a travel blogger, I realize that I rarely share much at all about my hometown of Minneapolis. Despite being known for the cold, long, brutal winters, Prince, and the recent host of the Super Bowl, Minnesota actually boasts over 15,000 lakes in the state. It is also home to one of the largest federally protected […]
All is quiet in our household. Photography has taken a bit of a back seat as the weather, once again, has not been conducive (that’s a big word for Monday morning) to getting out with the camera. By this time last year I had made eight photography trips out into the National Park and yet, […]
