Favorite faces Favorite places


“For a moment at least, be a smile on someone else’s face.”

Faces are really beautiful to me.

Nigerian Faces I loved

What do you think is the world’s most recognisable container of information? It’s the human face. We are constantly reading each other and responding.

Faces I loved in Nepal

Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?

There’s nothing more interesting than the landscape of the human face.

Golden Faces Golden Places


All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Ailsa’s Travel theme this week was gold.  What is gold to one is not necessarily gold to another. Here are a few of my interpretations about what is golden to me.  I hope you enjoy.

Golden in New Delhi

Golden in Turkey

Golden in Korea

Golden in Nepal

Best Golden moments though were the ones I spent back home with my family and friends.

B & W Challenge


I was very recently nominated to compete in a 5 day B & W Challenge. The goal was to each day pick and post one favorite B & W photo I have taken.  Anyone who knows me will absolutely not be surprised that I could not seem to focus on just one thing and therefore did not exactly follow the rules.  After perusing over 300 photos I finally narrowed it down to “some” of my favorite photos.  I like them so much I thought I would share (and in some cases re-share) the entire grouping here.

These photos represent only a few of my favorites from New York to India.  I love them because they express everything from sadness to pure chaos.  There is just something about a black and white that is timeless and beautiful.  I hope you enjoy.

Just follow the signs


In my opinion, the easiest city in the world to get around in is Seoul, Korea.  They put directional signs up at every corner.  Their metro system is by far the coolest.  I forgot how easy it was to go places in Seoul.  Aside from the signs, the people there will stop what they are doing to give guidance… even if that guidance is sometimes going in a different direction.  Ahh Korea, I miss you.

Metro entrance clearly marked on the street

Maps, signs, arrows, video.. you name it it shows you!!

Art, stores, more signs

During my recent visit to Seoul Korea I decided to meet up with friends, go hiking and just walk around some of my old stomping grounds.  My walk to Seoul tower brought me through some beautiful hilly areas with the trees just turning amazing colors.  I met a friend in Insadong and just happened to stumble on a dance and parade.  I tried finding out what the event was.. but will have to just label it improv Korea.  I really do love this place.
