LADY AT SEA

I just finished a two-week cruise in South America sailing from Buenos Aires, Argentina to ports in Uruguay and Chile. This was the longest cruise I’ve ever sailed…so long that when I left it was summer, made it halfway by winter and got back around summer again. I know it sounds insane so allow myself to clarify…when my ship sailed off Buenos Aires summer has just begun and the city was sizzling. Then we headed to the tip of South America passing by glaciers and snow capped mountains even experiencing snowfall in Ushuaia, Argentina. The cruise finally ended back in Buenos Aires with our ship docking on a hot summer morning. I took hundreds of photographs during this trip and will be posting them in the next few weeks. For this post, I am featuring a photograph I took of this magnificent sunset with a woman pensively looking out to sea. It was one of those rare sunsets wherein the entire sky looks like it’s on fire. Other photos below feature more passengers enjoying as well the magnificent sunset.

BEHIND THE ABBEY

The Westminster Abbey is a magnificent piece of architecture housing more than a thousand years of British royalty history making it one of the most visited places in London. Unfortunately, photography is prohibited inside the cathedral so the closest to the interiors I could photograph was its courtyard. It would have been awesome to capture the interiors but the courtyard provided me with good enough lines, shapes and shadows. Most photographs we see online are usually the facade of this building but I decided to skip that angle and went for this. I know it does not scream Westminster Abbey but they always say not to capture the obvious so here’s one taken from behind the abbey.
