We had visited Barcelona, what I call Gaudi Town, for a week about 90 days ago as the termination point to our trans-Atlantic cruise. Antoni Gaudi has four wonderful architectural master pieces in Barcelona, including Sagrada Familia which still being built 120 years later, Casa Milá and Casa Batlló. We will now get to see a fourth major work by Gaudi, Park Güell. We are concluding a 90 day, clockwise visit to the Iberian Peninsula. Continue reading →
Our Seville rental, or as the Spaniards say, Sevilla, immediately appealed to me since another Calatrava masterpiece would be in view from our balcony and immediately outside the front door. My mistake. As it turns out, this world’s largest wooden structure is not a Calatrava at all, rather it was built by some German unfamiliar to me, Jürgen Mayor. Continue reading →

The iPhone is a little irritating to a serious photographer. The iPhone takes some wonderful photos in a much easier manner than carrying around a large DSLR camera with interchangeable lenses.

Thank you for looking.
UPDATE August 2013: I initially used Joomla as the WEB back-end language which was a problem to keep updated. I am now in the process of switching to WordPress.
UPDATE September 2017: WordPress continues to be the platform for this WEB Site. It is easy to update, add photos and publish blogs. A professional programmer is on call for a fee of $50 a month. She handles all of the behind the scenes technical duties, major updates and server databases at my hosting site. I highly recommend WordPress to small businesses and bloggers.
