The Bell Tower

I was going through my images from California (can you believe I still have quite a few to process) and I came across another one from the Carmel Mission that I haven’t posted yet. I really loved this place and it was just a joy to photograph.

Just a reminder….yesterday I posted a review on 2 new books from Dreamscapes – Desert Paradise, A Guide to Death Valley National Park and Gear for the Landscape Photographer. I found out after I posted the review that the Dreamscapes Store will be running a Thanksgiving Sale starting tonight, Wednesday Nov 27th at midnight. 15% off everything in the store. No discount code required!

Santa Barbara Harbour Abstraction

Before we hit LA we spent 2 days in Santa Barbara and I absolutely fell in love with the place. The beautiful harbour front, the quaint downtown area and the friendly people made me wish we were staying longer.

I took this image of the harbour from the wharf while we were waiting to be seated for lunch.

Speaking of lunch, if you’re ever in Santa Barbara you must go to Brophy Bros. After checking in to our hotel we asked at the front desk if they could recommend a good local restaurant. We were sent to Brophy Bros. I have to tell you the baked clams were the best I have ever had. And the oysters. And the shrimps. Ok…I’m making myself hungry and I really want to go back.

Books & Old Prints

Walking along the Freedom Trail in Boston and making my way purposefully towards Boston Common, an awning caught my attention as I walked past a small alley way.  I stopped and decided to check it out and I’m really glad that I did. Not only was this a picture perfect opportunity but I had a great time browsing through the bookstore.  I’m always lamenting the fact that the big box bookstores have taken over the landscape. I miss these little bookstores where every nook & cranny is stuffed with old tomes and it has that slightly musty smell of books.

Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee

Here’s one more from Falmouth, Jamaica. Oh and their coffee was quite good. If you look behind the palm tree you can see the ship…larger then any of the buildings in port (or the city for that matter).

Have a great weekend everyone.

The Elgin Theatre

I held off posting this because the brackets for this image were used in our most recent round of HDR Tennis on Facebook. You can click on the link and check out the other versions of this image from the many talented photographers that participated.
