A Snap Shot of my journey

To share with you a bit about my past... in college I took Black and White photography for all of my electives. I love to take photos but have lost my skill in the Digital Age. I TRY to remember my skills in cropping, looking for shadows, etc.. but alas I don't mess with the shutter speed or aperture, I just shoot.. I am using my camera a lot for my Big Girl job and will sneak in some artistic personal photos. Below is a snap shot of my journey.. Will have more soon..

Please continue to check in on Circle of Moms, I would appreciate any votes, since I have been traveling I have not had the chance to really lobby for votes :)

FRANCE:
Would have more but Blogger is being difficult


ITALY:
Love Cinque Terre and other cities. The people and the food are unmatched. My personal Goal is to now backpack in Europe with Muscle Man someday.







CROATIA:
This country is so hard and different. Being in a city that was hit hard by war in the 90's is overwhelming. I am in love with the Castle-type walls.



If you look closely that is a Nike Store in Dubrovnik. I am happy to report that I helped my co-worker run and she purchased capris to continue her journey. I was tempted to buy a cute top so that when someone asked me where I got it I could say Croatia.. I didn't, yet :)

Bye for now..

Hugs!!

Tall Mom

Sigh...I want a job where I can travel.

Looks like a fantastic trip! Love the pictures. :)

Amy said...

Beautiful photos!

I laughed about you wanting to buy a top, because I always buy a peice of fun jewellery when I travel for that reason - when someone asks where I got it, I can say Thailand, or Italy, or New York or wherever!

I would have bought an ugly top. Then when ever I wore it everyone would be sure to ask me about it and I could say the mega cool place I got it from. ;-)

You haven't lost your eye. Wonderful photos!
