[Scroll down to the bottom for the latest photo.]

Writing is much easier for me than photography, [Don’t get me wrong; writing is hard work, but photography is even harder work!] and it is an understatement to say I am not a professional photographer.

With that said, I do love the art form. Since my husband and I travel extensively around the world, I have the opportunity to see many wonderful images each day, worth remembering and worth sharing…

So here is my humble daily offering. The latest photo is at the bottom, so you must scroll down…

In memory of “Oreo,” who said good-bye to us on April 11, 2013. He was 19 years old and had lived in four countries. He saw more of the world from the living room window of wherever he found himself each day than most of the world. He was my faithful companion who followed me constantly — even in the middle of the night. If I went to sleep in the recliner or downstairs to get cooler or more comfortable, he joined me just as soon as he realized I had moved. He waited outside the bathroom door patiently. He climbed on my lap as soon as I would sit down. He walked across my computer and pawed at my book if he needed attention. This loss will pass the the pain heal, but today, well, I’m just sad, so sad to be alone.

  1. Nice photos Bonnie. You have a good eye. The camera helps too! I love photography. I started a group called Painting with Light on FB. Why don’t you post some things there?

  2. Bonnie, you sell yourself way short in your abilities. Your love for photography expresses itself in each shot. You have a good eye, and your subjects become a stand out in each photo. Your photos tell a story all their own as they capture our imagination. This seems important to me, as without the eye of the camera, they would remain unseen and unsung to so many, and they have such value once revealed. This was a true blessing to me today to wander through the site and explore. The great thing is that I have only begun! I have so much still to discover! Thank you, Bonnie!

  3. Bonnie: your photography is enviable! It’s lovely, touching, and educaional. You highlight the ordinary and showcase it into an extraordinary vision.

  4. Your photos are gorgeous!!! I found you when I searched for the Wailing Wall through yahoo images! God is good!!!

  5. Your photos are lovely. I found your site while looking for a Borscht recipe. My daughter in Law is from the Ukraine. She lives in Texas an me in Oklahoma. My Grandson is 8 years old. She makes wonderful Borscht . I’m going to try to make it. This looks a lot like hers. Yummy!!
