Looking at Barcelona
A different view of Barcelona – between the trees in the distance, you can just make out Gaudi’s ‘Sagrada Familia’

This photograph was taken on South Beach Florida. Although you may not guess from this shot, the weather during our stay was beautiful. We came across this family enjoying their lunch, oblivious of the hungry birds.

On a flight to Whistler from Vancouver, the mountains just appeared through the cloud. I’m not sure of this really qualifies as Fleeting, but it was a magical sight.
Some photos that say “Forward” to me.
The path to the beach was so inviting, I just had to walk over it. The road out of Jasper was amazing, we drove for miles and didn’t see another car. We saw a bear and a few elks but nothing else for mile after mile; the scenery was just awesome we rode in silence for most of the journey. Our holiday to the southern region of Sardinia was very enjoyable, we explored ancient ruins which overlooked the sea, and visited the island of Sant’Antioco, where we found the deserted street.

I have been thinking too at this sad time, how delicate the balance is between life and death.
I pray that the families who lost loved ones in the heartbreaking, senseless massacre at the school in Newtown can find some peace, can take some small solace from the knowledge that so many thousands of people are sending them their sympathy and heartfelt condolences.

Foreign – something unfamiliar, something different; this was certainly true of a visit to Japan a few years ago. We saw lots of food on sale in a local market which we had never seen before and which looked very strange to us. Later, dressed in tradional kimonos and seated crosslegged on the floor, we were served a wonderful selection of food at a formal banquet.
We travelled to the beautiful northern island of Hokkaido to visit the hot spring village of Norboribetsu-Onsen. Here visitors can enjoy the waters in one of the many spa hotels. It is a sort of ritual, where men and women bathe in separate areas. Once you have undressed and showered, you take a dip in several hot pools, each containing a different water. It is very therapeutic and strangely refreshing. Above the village is “Hell Valley” where you can see the sulphur pits and geysers gushing up into the air. The smell is something else……
But the sights and sounds of Japan will stay with me for a very long time
Moon over Spinalonga
and sunset over Camp de Mar, Majorca
Splendidly solitary Spinalonga, sunset, silvery sea
I’m not sure that this is wrong, but it certainly was very amusing . I’ll leave you to make up your own minds………….
