A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of visiting one of the most beautiful states in the U.S., in my opinion. I had been to Maine on a family vacation as a kid, but this time I was headed there alone for the wedding of friends, and was able to take a couple of extra days to explore. I hope you enjoy what I found along the way.
Turns out Maine looks just as beautiful in Waterlogues as it does in real life.
While I wander around the world most of the year, I still return home to the U.S. often to see family (and Brinkley, of course!) often. A couple of years ago, my cousin introduced me to one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen, and it’s only 40 minutes away from where I grew up. I’m still wondering how I could have missed it all these years. The full story will appear in another blog post, but here are the Waterlogues from recent sunrise visit to Grinter Farms in Lawrence, Kansas.
Amsterdam again this Waterlogue Wednesday. The name Falling Off Bicycles didn’t pop out of nowhere. Nope, it came to me one day when I was living in Amsterdam. I was doing a lot of soul-searching at that time, as well as a lot of writing. I was so inspired by all the charming scenes of bikes parked in front of cute scenes, I had decided to shoot them and create a site to share them. I didn’t know at that time what purpose these hundreds of photos would serve and how they would end up inspiring me to create a travel photography business eventually. Since that time six years ago, I haven’t been able to stop taking photos of parked bikes – in Amsterdam and elsewhere. I’ve since added bicycle photos from Paris, London, Rome, Gent, and many smaller cities. I have so many, I could never possibly share them all. So for now, please enjoy a few of my favorite recent ones. 😍
This Waterlogue Wednesday, we are continuing our tour through summer in this beautiful city. I tend to wander the grachtengordel (canal ring) the most, because I love the reflections and the views. But when I wander even a block off, sometimes I find the most extraordinary scenes like that rose arch. Just try for a moment to imagine the fragrance coming off that thing! This city really feeds my craving to explore every nook and cranny there is. 😍
More Amsterdam for this Waterlogue Wednesday. You’ve got a collection of some of my favorite recent photos from my wanderings through the city alone and with a friend, plus, a house for sale that I wouldn’t mind purchasing. Nope, not at all! How about all that beautiful red paint? And the overflowing red geranium flower boxes hanging on the beautiful gingerbread façade? Sigh. We’re fully into the best season in Amsterdam.
