Tuesday Photo Challenge – Scene

Stockholm, Sweden

Here is a scene from the deck of Holland America’s ms Koningsdam as we were leaving the port in Stockholm.


Perhaps someone can tell me about what appears to be some kind of amusement park on the bay.

Come join the fun by following this link to “Dutch goes the Photo!” blog hosted by photographer Frank Jansen.

Share Your World – August 20, 2018

Share Your World is a weekly challenge hosted by Cee Neuner on her blog Cee’s Photography. You can follow the link above to see her answers to this week’s questions.

Here are this weeks questions:

Which tastes better: black or green olives?

Definitely green olives, especially in a Beefeater Gin martini.

What’s your favorite room in your home?

Our beautiful living room with its 16 foot high ceilings and south facing windows.

What fictional family would you be a member of?

The Atreides family from the novel Dune.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?;

This is a very easy question this week. It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary on August 14th. We couldn’t be happier, as our life gets better every year.

25th Anniversary – Aug 14, 2018

My wife Alice and I have been married for 25 years today. The theme for our wedding was ‘A Whole New World’ from the Disney movie Aladdin. How appropriate. We have been all over the world and all over the United States together. The travel continues this September with a European cruise from Amsterdam to Rome.

I selected two photos for this post. The first is at the Arch of Cabo San Lucas.


The second is from Badlands National Park in South Dakota.


It is hard to believe, but life gets better with every year.
