Travel theme: Arches

These pictures of arches are from around the Plaza Mayor in Madrid.  The actual reason that I took some of them was to remind me of which way I entered the plaza so that I wouldn’t get lost!  Many times when I travel I become so interested in seeing everything that I forget to notice which way I walked to get there.  To keep from getting lost I’ll take pictures of street corners, pedestrian signs and unique buildings or landmarks so I can retrace my steps later.  It works quite well and I end up with some interesting pictures of subjects other than the expected ones.  I also took some of these pictures simply because I liked them and they are not just reminders of where I had walked.

This is one of my souvenir pictures from Madrid.

CBBH Photo Challenge: Framed

When I was in Assisi, Italy I found many examples of scenes that were framed by arches or windows.  Here are some of the places I admired the most.



And now here are my recommendations for two wonderful travel blogs:   A Lifetime’s Exploration and traveldestinationbucketlist.  I’m sure you will enjoy them.  Until next month!
