Bonjour! I recently went to Paris to celebrate my birthday and New Year’s Eve. They say Paris is always a good idea, but it was especially dazzling in the winter. Even though traveling during this time of year involved some rainy weather, the French capital was also awash with festive light—from café canopies to trees that lined the Champs Élysées.
One of my favorite college pastimes was going to greenhouses and taking pictures. It was an escape from a crowded beer-filled campus to an oasis full of plants & perfect light. Call me a plant nerd, but I always enjoyed the time spent alone taking pictures.
While Majorca is the largest of the four Balearic Islands, I wouldn't use that term to describe it. The island felt more like an exotic, hidden treasure. Only a short plane trip east of Barcelona, Majorca is full of my three favorite "C's"– character, charm, & color.
On the last day of our travels in Spain, we spent a very quick eight-hour layover in Madrid. Although there is so much to see in Madrid, we leisurely strolled through and soaked up what we could instead of rushing to all of the monuments. After all you see almost just as much by simply walking around.
This week's project 52 prompt was yellow and it could not have come at a better time. There was so much yellow happening over in Spain–golden facades, blooming flowers, yellow mini cars, shutters, you name it. I couldn't stop seeing yellow, thus I shot it every chance I could.
Finally getting the second part of my Jamaica trip up on the blog. This post is crammed with pictures and little text. A photo journal if you will of all the places and pictures I loved most from my trip.
My family and I decided to ditch Christmas this year and head for somewhere warm - Jamaica. Prior to planning our trip, I had read about Kid & Coe on Emily Henderson's blog. Kid & Coe is an Airbnb type service, but is catered more towards kids (even though we have no "kids" in the family). They have homes all around the world that are not only oozing with character, but are huge, most likely with a pool, and reasonably priced.
When I was young, printing your pictures was as easy as taking your disposable camera to Walgreens and getting it developed. Putting them in a photo album and sharing laughs (and blackmail) was the next.
