I Saw You One Evening

Sometimes the moon casts just enough light!

Lighthouse in My Backyard

 

The Casa de Santa Maria, paired with the Santa Marta Lighthouse, was constructed in 1902 in Cascais, the cosmopolitan suburb of Lisbon.  I loved exploring this former Portuguese fishing village.  Charm and history were evident around every corner and hidden alleyways. A resort preserved  to explore and photograph.

The Casa de Santa Maria, paired with the Santa Marta Lighthouse, was constructed in 1902 in Cascais, the cosmopolitan suburb of Lisbon. I loved exploring and photographing this former Portuguese fishing village. Charm and history were evident around every corner and tucked away in hidden alleyways. It’s a resort that stood the test of time and was destined to be preserved in photographs.

Wheels

This was one of those scenes that flashed by on the side of the road and you just knew that a 'double-take' was in order! A wheel sculpture, floating on dew-covered grass and hovering beneath the morning fog, must be photographed to be believed!;

Taieri River Gorge

Taieri River Gorge

The outside platform between the train cars was my viewing station during our sightseeing trip through the Taieri River Gorge. Talk about “camera shake”! Departing from the historic Dunedin Railway Station and travelling through the rugged and spectacular Taieri River Gorge, we crossed wrought iron viaducts and meandered through tunnels carved by hand more than 100 years ago.

Impressions of an Opera House

Sometimes an iconic piece of art, such as the Sydney Opera House, evokes emotions and impressions which must be conveyed in a photographer's image.  I loved the magic of this place!

Sailing Sydney Harbour

Sailing-Sydney-Harbour

Hop a ferry from Manly to Sydney Harbour at twilight. If you’re lucky (and we were), you’ll catch a glimpse of the sailors of the Manly Yacht Club sailing and racing around Sydney Harbour. I’ll always remember it as a harbour dance performed just for us!

Bondi Sculpture

Bondi-Sculpture

A 20 minute ride from Sydney, Bondi Beach, with its surfing subculture, is the picturesque destination for sculpted rocks, towering cliffs and free spirits, both real and imagined.
Sculpture by the Sea – the coastal walk and outdoor exhibition stretching between Bondi and Tamarama – was just opening the weekend we arrived.
The sculptures were perfectly framed by Australia’s natural landscapes and breathtaking vistas. It was, for me, a harmonious existence between manmade art and the nature-made cliffs of Bondi.

Enjoying the first day of Fall on this warm, sunny afternoon. I love the feeling of “new beginnings” that stream in on sun-beams and crunch under my feet!

‘Dock of the Bay’

Dock-of-the-Bay

It was so hot that morning and there was no breeze. The St. Mary’s River was quiet and the clouds stood still. Docks and boat houses wait, but they always look lonely.

Cherbourg Daisy

Cherbourg-Daisy

Sometimes I feel sad when flowers die. But their textures, wrinkles, and final twists and shapes, reveal a mature character to which I am drawn. They share with us their complete life cycle in a very short period of time; for that we are fortunate.
