This weeks theme is Made by Man, which is pretty broad, so I have taken shots from some of my favorite places for this. Thank you as always to Cee for Hosting.
The Friendly Friday challenge is hosted alternately by The Snow Melts Somewhere and this week by Something to Ponder About. The theme this week is 'Revisited', which I thought would be easy, but then had to really think about. In the end I chose somewhere that has been a large part of my life over… Continue reading Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Revisited
This is my entry for Cee's Photo Challenge this week. The theme this week is in the distance. The shot above was shot along the East Coast of Northland NZ. The next was taken from a mountaintop in Crete last year. Looking out across the town of Rethymnon and the Aegean sea beyond. This next… Continue reading Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: In the Distance
Firstly, thank you to Perpetua who invited me to join this challenge, hosted on Travels and Trifles this week. I much appreciate the invite.

It is a mural, a study of the Artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser, and I have always been intrigued by the work. Partly because it decorates the underside of a railway bridge in one of the less frequented parts… Continue reading The lasting effect of Friedensreich Hundertwasser
I think we all get lost along the way sometimes. Well if you put yourself out there and take risks you do. If you don’t there is a fair chance you never found yourself in the first place. If you are this person, and your life has always been safe and predictable, you probably should… Continue reading Finding your way back
So far in my blogs about the Ionian Islands, I have concentrated on what I feel are my favourites.
