Walking around Prague

           Prague is a beautiful city with great old architecture. Here are some photos that I took during my visit.

Fire Dancer in Prague

    While walking around Old Prague, there was a man dancing with fire.  He was so talented and it was a lot fun to watch. I find that on vacations we plan on seeing so many things because we are somewhere new and different. It’s nice to go with the flow sometimes and experienceContinue reading “Fire Dancer in Prague”

Four paths

I took this photograph during my visit in Stockholm.  I was interested by all of the green space and how the paths met.  It reminded me of the Robert Frost poem “The Road Not Taken“.

A closer look at flowers

I took macro (close up) photographs of flowers during my trip.  It’s amazing how changing your perspective can really alter the feeling of a photograph and make it more interesting. I really enjoy taking photos of flowers because they look pretty and delicate but possess power and strength.

Children running with tulips

While walking around the Tulip Festival, I noticed some children running through the paths. They were so happy and free. It was such a sweet, innocent and pure moment.

Sunset over a Canal

Amsterdam is a beautiful, alluring city. I fell in love with the charming canals, the old architecture and the people. On my last night, I watched the sun setting over a canal and took this photograph.    

Prague at night

  Old Prague is beautiful. It’s great to walk around, site-see and enjoy the architecture. I really like the effect when you can tell something or someone is in motion. I took some shots of moving objects and people.  The image on the left is of tourists wandering around old Prague.  The image on theContinue reading “Prague at night”

2014 Tulip Festival

  The Tulip Festival in Noordoostpolder, Holland is breathtaking. You are surrounded by so much beauty that it’s surreal and feels like a fairytale. It’s incredible to see all of the  different types of tulips. This was one of my favourite sites in Holland. If you’re visiting during Spring, I recommend stopping by.
