Hola from Seville

We are having a great time in Seville, sherry tasting, cooking classes and a tour of the city. We have spent time touring the Plaza Espana, the Alcazar, Triana, and the Triana Market. So many beautiful streets, cafes, and plazas.

This week the 52framers challenge was “city life at night” and I decided to try out the pano feature on my new phone

This week on Society6 is offering 25% off all products and free worldwide shipping, just in case you are interested in a new yoga matt, or tote bag now is a good time!

Hola from Seville

I love the light and beautiful balconies

We arrived in Seville late last week, and we have enjoyed walking all the pedestrian streets. I love all the beautiful plazas, amazing architecture, and I especially love the light. Early morning light and the evening light along the streets! 

I have been participating with 52frames, a weekly photo challenge, 

week 4 –

Macro, admittedly I wasn’t overly inspired by the challenge, I was lucky to find the daffodils were blooming in my cousins garden. Thanks, Sharon and Bob for a lovely four days! 

Week 5 –

dirty, okay I am struggling with the challenge, and I am going to have to think about how I approach the challenges each week if I am going to keep them up. While I have been struggling, I have been inspired by the images submitted by many of the photographers, and this does help to motivate me. 

Week 6 – my desk, there are a few coffee shops, we have been enjoying the “coffee con leche” coffee with warm milk, as well as the wonderful pastries while I sit process image, so I pretty sure I will have a better submission this week. 

If you have any suggestions for off the beaten path things to do in or around Seville drop me a line, or if you want more info on the 52framers weekly photo challenge, let me know, I would be happy to send you a link. 

While we have been away I have launched a new website for images taken during our Camino to Santiago de Compostela, I would appreciate if you have a look. I would love to know if you have a favorite image, or if you have done the Camino, your favorite memory or location.

See you again soon. 

Hello from Lisbon

Ascensor da Glória, Calçada da Glória, Lisbon

52Frames week three introduces each of us to fellow photographers from around the world. It is meant to encourage each of us to be a tourist in our own city, and explore the places we haven’t yet seen, or to see old familiar places from a new perspective, that of a tourist. 


I happen to be traveling this week, visiting the beautiful city of Lisbon, so I shall say hello from here rather than my home town.   I started by researching all the “things to do” and “places to see” 4 days into our visit and I feel like there is still so much to see and do, and I don’t think one picture can portray a city.


Lisbon is the city of Seven Hills, and while I feel we have walked all of them, we have used the trams, funiculars and metro system to get around as well. The trams or streetcars have been in use since 1873. Tram 28 provides on the best tours of the city and is a popular tourist attraction. 

While working on the project this week, and wandering around Lisbon I kept asking myself how would someone from Lisbon want their city to be remembered, I am not sure I have the answer yet, and there are still streets to explore.
