Seattle Urban Lakes

July 6, 2014

I Just returned from a week in Seattle, Washington. I used to live in the Pacific Northwest and I know Seattle well. It’s a big city with a lots of life, culture, booming economy and breathtaking nature. This all comes out shining in the glorious summer season.
Seattle sits along the vast body of water of the Puget Sound but it also has some amazing lakes that are a great source for recreation, fun and beauty.  I love the lakes in Seattle and they were a big part of my life in Seattle.

Green Lake – fresh water lake, famous for its wonderful walking trail around the lake. I have walked this trail almost daily while living in Seattle. This lake has lots of beautiful and some rare trees in the grounds around it. It is always full of life with people walking, biking or playing in or along the water.

Lake Union –An amazing location right at the edge of downtown, with great recreation possibilities right in the city. Lots of boats are docked at this lake including the famous houseboat communities. The lake has lots of boating activity all year round. The lake offers stunning views of Seattle skyline.

One year anniversary

May 27, 2014

Today marks exactly one year since I have started this photo blog.
I have been averaging about one blog post per week and one year later I am still looking for the right way for me to expose my photography.

Here is one of my favorite recent photos, from Naples, Italy.

The streets of the Amalfi Coast

May 16, 2014

???????????

Our trip to the Amalfi Coast had us walking the streets and climbing its many stairs. We were rewarded with wonderful vistas, small nooks and intimate sightings. This also happened to be the perfect balance for the Italian hi-carb diet.

I just returned from a trip to the Amalfi Coast in the southwest of Italy. I have been to Italy several times before but this was my first visit to what some call the most beautiful place on earth.
Here are some of the sights around the island of Capri and at the beach in Positano.
This will be followed with additional posts from my visit to Bella Italia.

Little Havana

March 29, 2014

Little Havana in Miami, home to many Cubans, with its center of SW 8th Street, Calle Ocho.
Calle Ocho is a wonderful quaint street with Cuban cigar shops, mom and pop stores, art galleries and excellent Cuban food. On weekend nights, the street gets an extra kick with lots of music and dancing. Especially the last friday of the month when Viernes Culturales (Cultural Fridays) is celebrated.
