Football fever


Football is as popular in Berlin as in any big European city. These were the crowds heading to see Hertha play in April 2009.

Japanese bridge


The Honolulu airport has a beautiful Japanese garden inside the secure area. It was refreshing to be able to wait for our flight in such beautiful surroundings. I'm not sure that many people knew about this gem of a garden though as it was pretty empty. Just more for us to enjoy! Photo taken in January 2010.

Brille laden


I really liked this optician's shop window. It's like a cross between glasses seller and gallery! Photo taken in Birmingham, Alabama in May 2009.

View from the rental


This is the bridge from San Diego proper over to Coronado island. I took this quickly from the rental car as we were speeding past. There really wasn't a good place to stop for a picture. I think the car window makes for an interesting frame though.

Douarnenez 2000



This is an old scanned photo from the Douarnenez 2000 sailing festival in Finitstere, Bretagne. The festival is held every two years and it's wonderful to see all the beautiful sail boats. I was lucky to get some sun reflecting off this one.

Photo taken in July 2000.

Arkansas bridge


This is a bridge over the Mississippi River between Mississippi and Arkansas. We took it on the way to Oklahoma City in December 2009.
Since this bridge has generated so much interest, I thought I'd add that this is the Benjamin G. Humphreys Bridge which is located on US Highway 82.

Berlin wall victims memorial


Unfortunately, this memorial is no longer there. The land was sold to a developer who ordered the removal of the crosses. I'm glad I got a picture before it was gone. It was a nice way to remember those who died trying to get over the wall.

Taken in the Columbus Square shopping center in June 2009. It appears one part of his anatomy is quite popular. (I admit, I touched it too!).
