Monterrosso, Italy

23 Oct

Sometimes, we don’t realize what we have until we say goodbye.

Was missing Italia today. This was possibly one of my most favourite days of 2012.

Guatape, Columbia

22 Oct

Guatape has just over taken Salento as my favourite little town in the world. This place is tiny, stunning, colourful and surrounded by natural beauty. We stayed in a gorgeous hostel, El Encuentro, with views of the lake and La Piedra. This morning we went against our regular belief system and did exercise on  a Sunday. We climbed the 740 stairs to the top of La Piedra, a huge rock coming up through the middle of Guatape. The views were stunning and worth every step.
This place is just wonderful!

Competitive Travel-Yoga – Byron Bay, Queensland, Australia

21 Oct

Competitive travel-yoga guide (for dummies and winos)

It has come to my attention, that travelers now, will take yoga to the extreme, I imagine to show people, “Hey! I’m flexible, AND I travel!”Screw the sweaty hot yoga classroom, or yoga room, or…(I’m not sure what it is exactly), you can do a tree pose? I can do a tree pose in front of the ocean! Child’s pose, ha! Child’s play unless you’re doing it on a mountain top with an eagle eating a fish’s head in the background!

Since this new “competitive travel yoga” has come about, I’ve decided to take it down a notch, and let other travellers know, that it’s not unattainable to compete with these yoga gurus, even if we don’t do yoga on a daily basis, or monthly basis, or ever really. It’s all about inner peace, and wine.

POSE 1, THE PALM TREE
This pose is perfect for those who don’t want to go on a bike ride or run with a friend or loved one. it allows you to blend in to your travel surroundings, avoiding unnecessary exercise. It is also good for hunchbacks looking to “hunch-it-out”.

POSE 2 THE ALMOST COBRA IN AN EMPTY THEATRE WINE SIP
this move is perfect for when you sneak wine into a movie theatre, and no one else is there. You paid $20 to watch a movie, so take advantage by drinking wine and doing a yoga move. Or a kind of yoga move.

POSE 3 THE HALF TWIST HAMMOCK NAP
don’t let this pose fool you, it isn’t easy, it takes about 2 hours of afternoon drink, and a hammock. Notice the focus on leg and chin placement. He has found his happy place.

POSE 4 THE DOWNWARD DRUNKEN DOG
Let’s face it. Yoga, traveling, beaches and beer, are all hard things to put together. But this majestic yoga move that I’ve created, allows for all of this to flow easily, while making all of your travel-yoga friends super jealous that you’re on the beach doing yoga and they’re not. Because that’s what it’s all about.

Now that you have some tips for a great yoga-travel day, try them out in your favorite travel spot! A trash dump, On top of an elderly person, or even at your local liquor store. Get out there and discover your inner peace!
(My inner peace is wine, when it’s in my belly)
That’s my 2 cents

LOL great post :)

Istanbul, Turkey

20 Oct

Everything in Istanbul is just so beautiful. On our third day there we, of course, started our morning at an adorable café. I think cafes are always my favorite when traveling abroad. In a city like Houston, we just don’t have the luxury of great outdoor cafes. Between the humidity and the fast paced lifestyle, it’s so hard to just sit and enjoy life and all its beauty. After our coffee we began our fabulous rainbow stair descent towards Istanbul’s Modern Art Museum where we wandered for a while before heading to the Spice Bazaar.

I’m In Here, A Prisoner Of My History

18 Oct

Photo taken by contributor Carrie Hilgert, a photographer and portrait artist in her thirties from Northeast Kansas. After venturing into digital photography, she became interested in documenting her life with self portraits. This became particularly helpful when her life started to fall apart due to depression. All her other creative outlets left her, but she could always process her very dark feelings with self portraits. While she is doing much better now, she maintains compassion for those going through these hard things and hopes that her photography can give an honest insight into something that makes most people feel very isolated and alone.

About this photo: “This is from a series on fear and uncertainty. Fear seems to be a recurring theme in my life, no matter how hard I fight it. Fear of abandonment, of not being noticed, of my mental illness consuming me, of what people will think if they see the real me, of losing my creativity and worst, of getting to the end of my life without having let all of the wonderful things inside me come out. This image is about the battle against fear. I think most of us recognize that internal war with something. Whether it’s fear or not, no matter how long you’ve been fighting it, there are times when the battle is fierce and for me, it’s usually when I am trying to grow. The ego doesn’t like change.

Goddess – Assos, Greece

17 Oct

Assos has a rich and diverse history.  In the 700s BCE colonists left Lesbos and settled in Assos.  Aristotle visited and fell in love with the King’s daughter, Pythia.  Because he was forbidden to marry Pythia, Aristotle taught in Assos for three years so he could be close to her.  On the acropolis (which means “top of the hill” in Greek) the Greeks constructed a temple to Athena and surrounded the entire city with walls.  In the 14th century after leaving Bursa the Ottomans inhabited Assos, strengthened the city walls, and added a mosque.  Today the slopes of Assos are home to locals who make thyme oil and olive soap.  So far I would have to say that Assos is the most beautiful place we have visited.  Because the elevation is so high compared to the surrounding land you can see across the entire Aegean sea.  We were the only group at the site so we were able to explore the ruins and sit on the cliffs while watching the water.  When you stand on the acropolis you can see why this spot was so desirable, not only because it is beautiful but because of its strategic position and proximity to the harbor.

Statue – Dallas, Texas

I took this photo at the Dallas Arboretum.

 
I am coming back to photography after a 50 year hiatus caused by a family tragedy. I am so enjoying taking photos again. I went to the Dallas Arboretum twice a week last spring to photograph flowers and statues.
