Hello and welcome to my photo blog. I have always had an interest in photography, but have never really taken it anywhere, until recently. It is purely a hobby and something I would like to share, and thanks to technology I have found a great way to do this. I hope you enjoy viewing them, as much as I have enjoyed taking them. Please feel free to share these photos, all I ask is that you credit the photographer and/or include a link to this blog.
This week’s photos come to you from the beautiful city of Salisbury. A lovely place and a city I could easily swap for Sydney. We meandered through Salisbury with Ray’s two sons and their families on our first visit there and again on our last full day in England, where we also discovered the beauty that is the Salisbury cathedral. What an amazing structure!
We arrive…in England! I just adore this country and when we were there (now pardon the cliché here) I felt a sense of belonging; that England is meant to be my homeland… Weird? Maybe. But to me it felt as if I were home. The people are lovely, friendly and so polite and charming. England boasts a beautiful countryside and the Autumn leaves gave the streets a charming feel. I adore the history of this country and fell in love with the magnificent architecture.
The following photos were taken on a day our friend, Marco took us on a drive to Furnas and back to Ponta Delgada. We were again treated to some magical sites that this wonderful island has to offer. If you EVER have a chance to go to São Miguel, please do…
This week I bring you photos from our absolutely AMAZING day trip to Sete Cidades and Lagoa do Fogo, via Ribeira Grande. Sete Cidades is a civil parish in the centre of the municipality of Ponta Delgada, that is likewise located in the centre of a massive volcanic crater approximately 5 km across, also referred to as Sete Cidades. The smallest parish by population (although largest in area), Sete Cidades’s population was 858 (2001), in an area of 19.22 km² (its density is 44.6/km²).
What we witnessed on that day was magic and something that will stay with me forever…
We experienced a few wet days on the island, but that certainly didn’t dampen our spirits… We simply sat and enjoyed coffees, strolled along the avenida, marina and down some lovely little side streets… Never boring in Ponta Delgada 😉
Do have a look at my husband Ray’s website: http://www.rayscam.com/
The idea with this blog is to bring you an image a day for the whole of 2013. Each image will be made on the day. I hope that you will enjoy the journey with me, and feel free to comment on or share images; they are meant to entertain and please, after all.
