Old and Older
The skyline of Havana as seen from the fortress El Morro, built in 1589 to defend the harbor below.
A very distinctive feature of the Pima County courthouse in downtown Tucson, built in the 1920's.
Internet is hard to come by in Cuba. But anywhere with an access point, we found groups of people communicating with their phones, and occassionally tablets or computers.
Bend in the Road
Buildings stacked up above the narrow road along the Amalfi Coast. The view is magnificant but not something the drivers should be watching.
Some of the more unusual street musicians in the Zocalo
The afternoon of our third workshop day was spent at a working western movie set (they had just finished an Adam Sandler film). This is one of the set built for a film along the way with one member of our class taking a closer shot.
Riding the Rails
I was surprised at how crowded the subway was early on a Sunday morning. And no one really paid much attention to a bunch of tourists stumbling around trying not to get lost while taking their picture.
An old downtown Tucson theater still hosting shows.
At the Summer Palace.
Learning the Language
These kids were visiting the Palace wearing matching jackets and carrying matching umbrellas declaring them to be part of a language learning program.
This was our home for the three days in Trinidad. Actually, it's someone else's home that they shared with us. According to the guide book, the town has more than 400 casa particulars with rooms to rent.
Ok, so this is a picture postcard shot. But I like it. Besides, it was one of the few nice days we had during the week.
These young ladies, in full makeup and costume, take a quick break from the parade to take selfies.
We saw street musicians in every city we visited but this was the only one playing a cello. He was in a beautiful setting outside the Rock Church.
Strad Center-MIT 2
I'm surprised we didn't see more scenes like this one since these cars are held together with home made parts and a lot of love.
Making an Entrance
The bride accompanied by her father (I assume), slowly ascends the stairs into Amalfi's Saint Andrew's Cathedral. All of it captured by the photographer and his assistant at the top, and lots of other visitors.
If Kathy can take pictures of puddles, so can I. :-)
Engaged couples in China commonly hire a photographer to compile a wedding album before the actual ceremony. We saw lots of them working along the shore in Qingdao.
One little boy in the group recognized him from the Harry Potter movies.
Leading the Parade
A young man waits patiently to kick off a parade through his neighborhood.
Ribbon of Light
Sunlight coming through a break in the awning over the amphitheater at the Alamo.
While visiting Fuxing Park in the former French Concession area of Shanghai, we were entertained by this band with an unusually large number of saxophones. They were pretty good.
Umbella and Shadows
Along the San Antonio river walk.
Crusing into Positano
The last stop on the way to the island of Capri. The woman got in the shot by accident but she makes it an even nicer picture.
View From On High
London as seen from the grounds of the Royal Observatory at Greenwich. The ferris wheel at the right is not the Eye, it's the smaller Greenwich Wheel on the grounds of the Old Royal Naval College.
I didn't add the red pepper to this display at a farmer's market. Really I didn't.
A boy poses for his mother's camera along side one of the guards at the Swedish royal palace. Look carefully to see the black line on the ground inside of which you must not stand.
These were live, waiting to be grilled, in several stalls of the Wangfujing Snack Street. I did not try one.
Barber Chair 2
The red seat stands out among all the browns and grays.
I do like the shirt, however.
One of many impressive and colorful churches we saw in the area.
Smartphone in one hand, writing tools in the other. Beautiful setting for whatever task is at hand.
Reading the Program
In the lobby of the Kimmel Center before a matinee performance by the Philadelphia Orchestra.
