Colorado Dreamin’

Colorado-Dreaming

Happy New Year!  I hope that you are looking forward to 2019; I know that I am!

This is going to be my last http://www.fivefeetsquare.com blog post.  I am so grateful to all who have followed me, liked and commented on my images, throughout the years.   I will continue to share my travel photography on Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/barbarayoungleson/    I hope to see you there.

I love the words of Helen Keller: “life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing.”  I know that adventure awaits, even if it’s in my own back yard.

Street photography is so much more than capturing people passing through your field of vision. There are emotions and messages around every corner.  Connect with them!

Barcelona Twilight

There’s an electricity along the  tree-lined pedestrian mall of La Rambla.  This vibrant  promenade cuts through the heart of Barcelona and is crowded until the wee hours of the morning.  ‘Looking-up’ helps to reduce the sensory overload and provides some of the more spectacular views of the city.

Morning Light

These tiny fishing boats were dwarfed by gigantic tankers, yachts and cruise ships negotiating their way along the Suez Canal. I marveled at their bravery while vying for a little fishing territory along the choppy waters of the Canal.
