Layered View of Zurich

Sometimes you just get lucky. We checked into our hotel, the Marriott Hotel Zurich, and we entered our room we were met with this view.

Saying Good-bye to Brady

It seems that my absences are becoming more frequent and for that I apologize. I just returned from a trip to Israel with a short stop in Zürich and Milan. It’s taken me some time to adjust being home but this has nothing to do with jet lag.

Three days before leaving on my trip we lost Brady, our beautiful Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. We brought Brady home when he was just 8 weeks old and we celebrated his 12th birthday 5 days before he passed away.

Brady, as most Cavaliers, was a love sponge, yes, a love sponge. What does that mean you ask? Well  he would absorb all the love that we showered on him and then just pour it back all over us ten fold. There’s wasn’t a lap in this family that he didn’t enjoy lying on. He was a snuggle bug but fiercely protective of his family.

His loss has been devastating to our family. His absence in the house in palpable. I miss walking through the front door and being greeted by a wagging tail and big slobbery kisses. I miss being stared at with those big brown eyes whenever I’m eating something. I miss him nudging my leg telling me its time to play. I miss our walks in the park. I miss giving him tummy rubs and having him at my heels going up the stairs when it was time for bed. I miss our snuggling before bed and giving him that last scratch behind his ears (that was his favourite) before going to sleep.

Brady was more than a “dog”. He was our baby and an integral member of our family.

You’ll live in our hearts forever Brady. We love you and miss you.

 

Bethesda Terrace #3

I was starting to process images from my weekend New York this past October when I realized I still had some unprocessed images from July. Sometimes its hard to stay on top of all the images but I am trying to clear up the backlog especially since I’m getting ready for another trip that’s just a couple of weeks away.

Alone at Last!

I love shooting at night when the crowds die down. This particular evening it was about 10:30pm when my husband and I returned from dinner. We went to our room and I grabbed my camera and headed out, quickly yelling behind me, “I’ll be back in 1/2 hour.” I think it was after midnight when I finally got back but the beach in Tel Aviv always does that to me. I seem to get lost in the calm, the gentle rolling of the waves.

I wasn’t quite alone though. Different parts of the beach told different stories…the beach restaurant with the bright lights &  roaring music; the treasure hunter combing the sand for lost treasure; the backpackers enjoying a bonfire and claiming their real estate for the night and the young couple finding the perfect spot by the lifeguard station to steal away some romantic time alone.

View from the Charles Bridge

Well…January is almost over and I hope it’s not to late to wish you all a Happy New Year. This is probably the longest absence I’ve had from blogging in the past 5 years.

Coming of a bout of bronchitis right after the holidays made getting back into the groove of things a bit more difficult. Well…I think I’m back on track and wanted to share this image taken on the Charles Bridge in Prague.

No new years resolutions this year (I tend to break those) but I do promise to “try” to be more consistent in my blogging schedule.  Did you guys make any resolutions?
