crazy for you

New York, New York

This collage of an imagined Manhattan skyline was created from a Playbill from the Shubert Theatre for the show Crazy for You, which we saw on a visit to New York in 1993. I originally posted it in January 2015 just before our last New York visit and early in my 365 day blogging challenge that year. You can see the full image here on Day 26.

Happy 4th

Wishing family and friends below the 49th a very Happy 4th of July

as I remember some unforgettable moments visiting down south.

WPC: Transient

Depicting a state of impermanence.

I couldn’t resist re-visiting my photos of the Mirroir d’Eau in Bordeaux for this week’s Photo Challenge: Transient, where every few minutes the scene changes as the 2 cms of water that create the largest reflecting pool in the world drain away to expose its granite floor…

…before returning again to the delight of adults and children alike.

You can see more of this magical World Heritage Site in my post of December 2015

Monbazillac matted and framed

One of the twelve snippets of palettes and paintings I featured in brought to you by the color green, a color that needs to be celebrated and championed this week more than ever.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting

Perfect for this week’s Photo Challenge: Reflecting was this glorious sunrise last weekend reflected in the water lapping Rathtrevor Beach at the lovely Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Resort, Parksville, British Columbia where I was staying.

An early morning walk along the beach followed with equally stunning reflections seen in the tidal pools left by the receding water.

You can see why our Province is known as Super, Natural British Columbia. Enjoy the slideshow with a few more photos from the walk…
