A Different Kind of Art

Tuesday, August 12, 2008

August has come on the heels of June. July is a blur! My husband and my two dear sisters set off unexpectedly on a whirlwind cruise of the British Isles and Northern Europe, thanks to a generous gift from my father to my oldest sister, Kathy. What a trip! Please allow me to depart from my usual book arts to share with you a few photographs from the trip. While I would never represent myself as a photographic artist, these few compositions make me very happy.

Fauna . . .


And flora . . .


Iconic images . . .




Ancient monastic ruins . . .

And cliffs overlooking the North Sea . . .

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to enjoy these beautiful places with my beloveds on this trip of a lifetime! But now it's back to the books.

Wow, beautiful. Kristin and Melvin went to Scotland last year and some of the pics remind me of theirs. Thanks for sharing. Incredible places to visit and memories that will last forever!!
