AlphabeThursday - P is for Photographs

What can be better for capturing memories than a photograph!  Sometimes I feel silly carrying around a camera with me, in my neighborhood.  But when I go on vacation, I always make sure I have a camera.  Here are some of my favorite photos from vacations in the not too distant past.






These first two photos are from Bolzano and Northern Italy, near the Alps.



Hard to miss Venice.  This was definitely on my bucket list! 


We flew in and out of Rome.  This is my favorite Coliseum photo.

A few years before we went to Italy, the family went on a trip to Ireland, in celebration of my nephew graduating from college. Here he is; I think we were in Dublin:


We stayed together in a house in southwestern Ireland and took day trips out to visit historic sites.  And took in some of the beautiful scenery.


Most of those little white dots are sheep.  They are just everywhere!



We went and visited a historic island.  Here are some wild donkeys.  So cute!


I forget now, how I managed to get a wide-angle image here.  Probably a camera setting.  That's most of the family, and we're looking back on the "mainland"... though Ireland is actually an island too!

Your photos are always wonderful! Love the one of the Venice canal -- I just can't imagine walking right at the water's edge like that! And of course, the lock pic is a favorite!!
You're lucky to have done as much traveling as you have!

We take our ability to make photographs for granted these days. Not so long ago they were taken with care and developed at expense. We're so lucky to be able to 'click' with abandon, and then share so that others can experience where we've been.

Great idea for the letter P! It's wonderful to have those photos to look back on vacations later. Your landscape shots are stunning.
