As I walked by the lake in Lugano, Switzerland I noticed this gate. Then I saw the benches on either side. Before sitting down I decided to take a picture.
It was a pleasant place to rest for a few minutes.
For the theme of mountains I found this picture of the Matterhorn in Zermatt, Switzerland. It was quite a sight!
Here’s a picture from Zermatt, Switzerland that features buildings made of wood.
This theme from East of Málaga reminds me of the time I took a gondola to the top of Monte Tamaro near Lugano, Switzerland. Although it was May there was a chill in the air. Here are some of the views from that day that feature the color blue.
The two blogs I’d like to recommend are:
Until next month…
I want to say “Thank you” to Kathryn from Travel with Kat for this nomination. I’m happy to have the opportunity to show photos I’ve taken that correspond to the following colors: blue, green, yellow, white, and red. If you go to TravelSupermarket.com you’ll find out more about “Capture the Colour.” It explains all the steps needed to participate, and there are prizes, too. And now here are my photos.
I was in Capri, Italy and used a chairlift to get to the top of the island. While there I enjoyed watching the progress of the boats in the water. I recall the experience in Capri from a Chair Lift.
These are some water lilies from Monet’s Garden in Giverny, France. I was there in the spring and I thought there wouldn’t be much in bloom. As it turned out, there was no need for concern. I wrote about what I saw that day in The Beautiful Flowers of Giverny…
When I’m in Venice, my goal (once I’ve stood in Saint Mark’s Square) is to wander and get away from the crowds. I’ve always found that once I’m off the main road there are more everyday – and less touristy - sights. I really like seeing laundry hanging from the windows too.
I was in Zermatt, Switzerland on a warm spring day with a clear blue sky. But the whole time there was a little cloud around the Matterhorn. I finally realized it wasn’t going away and it made the scene a little more dramatic.
I took this picture while I was walking around downtown Dallas, Texas in January. I was looking for the flagship Neiman Marcus building when I saw this oversized Christmas ornament. I describe my visit in Greetings from Dallas.
Now I’d like to nominate the following five bloggers to participate in “Capture the Colour”:
Robin of Bringing Europe Home had a new quote this week:
We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand–and melting like a snowflake.” Sir Francis Bacon
It was a warm and sunny day in Zermatt, Switzerland when I took this picture during late spring. But when I looked up there was still snow on the Matterhorn. The quote reminded me of what I saw.
Here’s something I do to save money for trips that started when I brought some coin banks home from a visit to England.
Chocolate is something that many people enjoy receiving as a gift. However, I’ve found that chocolate rarely makes it back to the people who might have liked it. This is because I can’t stop thinking about the delicious chocolate bars sitting in my suitcase, and I really can’t resist them. It’s almost a relief when I’ve eaten them. Then I can think about something else to take back as a gift.
