Wordless Wednesday: I Could Make a Calendar. Or Two.

When traveling without the kids, I have the chance to appreciate my surroundings.  Without the need to corral and feed and take care of children, I get to stroll and observe and notice details.  And take photos.

Lots and lots of photos.

Blame yourselves for the following upchuck of digital images.  You asked for pictures.  

Just be grateful that I can't set up a slide projector in your living room.  That presentation most certainly wouldn't be wordless!  (Hey, there's your first thankful for your TToT list this weekend!)



























Have a lovely day!

  1. Lovely photos Christine, many of them extremely creative. My favourites are the first, the third, and the stained glass window, that's gorgeous. And you can come and set up a slide projector in my living room any time you like :)

    1. Thank you! I thought I knew what stained glass windows were until I got to Europe. Have mercy, they knew how to make a statement with a window back then!

  8. You take amazing pictures! I don't know which is my favorite, but I'm leaning towards the one of the greenhouse-type building, because as you scroll past it, it moves.

    1. Thank you! I loved that building. It is in Kew Gardens and is full of tropical plants. The photo of the red flower was taken in it. There were iron spiral stairs and ornate railings, but this shot was my favorite of the actual building.

  9. Gorgeous photos, Christine! What are all of those locks signifying? They look like they have little pieces of paper on them? Is it a prayer wall or something like that?

    1. Thank you!
      It is called the love bridge, or something similar. This bridge is completely covered with locks. Couples write their names on it, with maybe the year or date of the anniversary they are celebrating or a saying, then attach it to the bridge. It's all about the love, Baby! :)

    1. Thank you! All but 2 were taken with my real camera. The ocean and the city view from the inside of the tower were taken with my phone. Are you on instagram?

    2. I have an Instagram account but have not taken any pics. :P I'm one of the last holdouts and still have a Blackberry and feel rather silly taking pics on R's iPad. Haha! I will look you up though. :)

  11. Now that my totally, 'hey!-no-has-mentioned-the-odd-photo', has been destroyed by a blogger who will remain un-identified* I have to go back and review them again...which is not a major chore, v good pitchas, Ms. Coop, v good.
    Please don't tell us that you took them all with your phone! very excellent quality.
    ....ok, got it! (my second favorite, not-totally-co-opted by a certain, un-identified extra sensory perceptive clark) photo is a toss-up between the Eiffel Tower (the bent one) and the Duck la orange...


    * her name rhymes with Kristi Rieger Campbell, but I want to protect her privacy

    1. Leave it to Kristi to take your nomination.

      Thank you, Clark. I hope scrolling through them twice wasn't too taxing for you. ;)

      I only took a few with my phone. Most are my real camera. Have no fear.

      Cute duck, no?
