Photography ~ Places I’ve Been

Glasgow Cathedral or High Kirk, Glasgow, Scotland.

Here are some images from my 2016 trip through Scotland. I captured these with my old Nikon D50, which I have kept as my backup camera. I was so surprised when we arrived at Brig O’Doon… I thought it was only an imaginary place! I am so intrigued by the centuries and centuries of history when I travel in Europe and all the beautiful sites. I have no idea of who painted the man with the bird on the building or why, but it is just beautiful. If you know more, please enlighten us.

Photography ~ Places I Have Been

One of the things I miss most about todays world is the ability to freely travel. There is no better way to connect with other people than to share time, food,  and learn about their world.  It is so meaningful to share hospitality and just being in the moment with another within their own culture. I believe it is true that our world shrinks and can become more caring as we learn about each other’s culture and people.  While on one of my many walks,  I just happened to come across these beautiful doors while exploring about Rome. To say there is so much to find in Rome is an huge understatement! This is truly where  I learned and understood the phrase ‘Rome was not built in a day’.  Besides all the beautiful art, architecture, and friendly people… they have great music, wine, coffee, and make a great margarita to just sit and sip in one of their lovely piazzas. Yes, I enjoyed everything about Rome, including actually walking on the very same road as some of the greatest Roman rulers, and so much more. Oh, someday  to go again. ~

It’s fun to find something you didn’t plan on when you started out. Great Americana!

I have written before about my favorite vacation spot to visit in South Carolina. However, I am missing it this year as many of you are probably missing going other places. So I will not whine and be thankful for all the times that I have been able to visit and know more times will come. I wanted to share this little bird that I would see every time I would go. I thought he was a permanent resident until I decided to learn more about him. I found that he also visited at the same time every year…. just like me! The male painted bunting is such a lovely creature. A bird with a coat of many colors. Who knew?

Drifting through the salt marsh

bending the tall grasses

in a sea of green.

Egrets keeping a wary eye

notice my passing by.

Smelling the warm pluff mud

under the sweating sun,

under a broad blue sky

life carries on.

With all of this staying home stuff, I’ve had some extra time to start looking through some of my older images. This was taken more than a few years ago (2007) when I was contemplating whether I wanted to venture into digital photography. Yes, I can hardly believe that something that I love now was met with having to be dragged… kicking and screaming into the new age. I so loved my Minolta SRT101 at the time, which by the way I still have keeping company on the shelf. You know just in case I may need again someday. So being cautious about my investment, I bought an inexpensive FinePix A340 just to give it a go. By now, I had almost forgotten about this camera until I pulled up the file information on my computer linked to this image.

This jellyfish was shot on a quick road trip stop at the Atlanta Aquarium. I was greatly surprised by this image that was captured. Just proof that some fun things can happen even when you are first learning and really don’t know what you are doing. That is not to say that I have stopped learning as that will never happen. So keep on shooting and happy exploring, but with camera in hand.
