Travel Theme : Paint

A modern Lady Godiva!

A modern Lady Godiva!

Not all graffiti is ugly, some of it can have humour, be colourful, different and thought provoking, like this painting on the side of a pedestrian bridge in Frankfurt.    There are some talented artists out there that start painting in public places!

Travel Theme : Gleaming

2015-05-08 11.20.58The Victoria & Albert Museum in London is full of interesting reproductions copies of world famous  sculptures and paintings, all gleaming in the light showing them off to their best advantage.   The museum is a great place to visit if you are ever in London.

Travel Theme : Mellow

Looking out to sea

Looking out to sea

Summer and sunshine are two happenings that make us feel mellow, and lazy, and happy inside, like the old man above going for a stroll on the soft sand when the tide is out.

and on a stripy deckchair, under an umbrella, besides the turquoise water, is mellow and relaxing.

Travel Theme : Land Meets Water

Blue Lagoon, Malta

Blue Lagoon, Malta

I am sitting looking out at a dull sky…and cheering myself up by looking at pictures of our recent holiday, and blue skies, and warm water.     This picture of the Blue Lagoon, between Malta and Gozo, has shallow, clear water, and you can walk from one side of the lagoon to the other (tides permitting) and explore the interesting caves on the far side.

Freighter in Valletta Grand Harbour

Freighter in Valletta Grand Harbour

There goes a freighter heading for the shore line in Valletta, passing by Fort St. Elmo which laps the waters of the shore.

Going to the beach

And look at the blue water that is just so inviting.

Travel Theme : Off Centre

My photos today are mostly taken in Blarney Castle when my daughter was visiting last August, as you can see there was a little ‘yarn bombing‘ going on in the young trees.   If you haven’t heard of yarn bombing, or guerilla knitting (and we overheard a few confused American visitors saying ‘but whats the point?’)   this is what Wiki says about it

Yarn bombing, yarnbombing, yarnstorming, guerrilla knitting, urban knitting or graffiti knitting is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk.

Outdoors

I often post photos of being outdoors in the mountains when hillwalking, but here are a few different photos of the great outdoors, discovering new places and ancient monuments.

The ancient city of Ephesus

Sometimes it is hard to avoid crowds in places of great beauty and historical interest.

Crowds in Venice

Crowds in Venice

But sometimes the place is so beautiful that you ignore the crowds (and the scaffolding!), and the queues to get inside.

St Marks Square, Venice

But I think I still prefer to be in the outdoors with nature.

Travel Theme : Arches

Underneath the arches

Underneath the arches

This tunnel runs under the road from Torc Waterfall to Killarney National Park, so that people can move safely across  the busy narrow road, and enjoy the beautiful walks at both sides of the road.
