Statue – Dallas, Texas

15 Oct

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.

Gadsimtiem ejot (The Centuries) – Cesis, Latvia

11 Aug

Outside St John’s church along Torna Iela stands the sculpture of an old man carrying a lantern. The bronze sculpture is called Gadsimtiem ejot which translates as The Centuries. It was created in 2005 to mark the 800th anniversary of Cesis (2006) and is the work of the Latvian sculptor Matiass Jansons.

Vatican City

11 Mar
Dear Toemailers,

As you know, I’m a big time fan of your snazzy, jazzy, toe-tapping site. You do make the world a better place, one foot at a time. During my recent trip to Rome, I snapped a few images of some rather handsome tootsies. For you, I kept my eyes peeled for ones possessing with mass appeal. This shot was taken at the Vatican on a bright, sunny day back in December.

Keep on snapping and stepping!

Surfers Paradise, Queensland, Australia

21 Dec

With Christmas less than two weeks away, holiday decorations are popping up all around Surfers Paradise.  Many of them feature Santa in a swimsuit, which I find hilarious.  They’ve been playing Christmas carols over loudspeakers in the pedestrian mall and there’s even a real live Santa that makes appearances every once in a while to take photos with kids (and Asian tourists…. let’s be real, mostly Asian tourists.)

John Hume’s statue,High street, Edinburgh

I often see tourists rubbing his big toe,hence it so polished. I don’t know if its in a guide book saying it brings good luck but someone must be telling them.

Bratislava, Slovakia

9 Dec

My trip to Bratislava, which is a capital of Slovakia, was a part of the Golden Ring of Danube bus tour. I felt extremely comfortable with Slovakian culture. I think the fact that I’m a Ukrainian facilitated my positive outlook at a similar culture, which happens to be a Ukrainian neighbor as well.

A lot of people told me that Slovakia is a poor country, and I wouldn’t be able to see anything interesting. But, I didn’t get discouraged after hearing so much negative feedback. I went to Bratislava with an open mind, and I was pleasantly surprised that Slovaks were extremely friendly and helpful. And, Bratislava, in its own charming way, had a few architectural gems that could easily compete with some of the architectural splendidness in the capitals of its more sophisticated European counterparts.

feet,toes,statue,Achilles,Corfu, Greece

Achilles was the son of the mortal Peleus and the Nereid Thetis. He was the mightiest of the Greeks who fought in the Trojan War, and was the hero of Homer’s Iliad.  Thetis attempted unsuccessfully to make her son immortal. The legend says that she held the young Achilles by the heel and dipped him in the river Styx; everything the sacred waters touched became invulnerable, but the heel remained dry and therefore unprotected.

After the death of Hector at the Trojan War, Achilles continued fighting heroically, killing many of the Trojans and their allies, including Memnon and the Amazon warrior Penthesilia. Finally Priam’s son Paris, aided by Apollo, wounded Achilles in the heel with an arrow; Achilles died of the wound.

The statue captures exactly Achilles’ anguish of death, who has just been wounded by the lethal arrow.The original sculpture is located in the Achilleion Residence of the 19th century Queen Elizabeth (Sissy) of Austria in Corfu, Greece.
