Daydreaming... Wouldn't you love to jump in an airplane and go
wherever your heart is?        
Remember, there you'll find your treasure!                   
One way to open your eyes is to ask yourself, "what if I had never
seen it before? What if I knew I would never see it again?"

Big travel plans to see new places in a year! Always savor the thought, 'what if I don't see this again'....Poignant thought. Enjoy this day.

Your question whisked me home to the canyon. But the quote brought me back to my Mom.

Nice series of candid shots.

Υπέροχες οι φωτογραφίες σου αγαπημένη μου Μπέττυ !!!
Συγκινούμαι πολύ όταν βλέπω φωτογραφίες από ταξίδια !!!
Ίσως γιατί σ όλη μου την ζωή, ταξιδεύω, όπου μπορώ ...
Πιστεύουμε στην οικογένεια μου ότι δεν υπάρχει τίποτα καλύτερο !!!!
Και το εφαρμόζουμε...
Πολλά φιλάκια

Betty Manousos@ CUT AND DRY said...

a daft scots lass, exactly. that's why i am interested in photographing pictures of daily life.

....Petty Witter said...

Who said every picture paints a thousand words? I feel this very way every time I see the wonderful images you capture.

Nancy said...

I think I could stand a trip to New Mexico about now. Somewhere in the desert.

Great people photos! :)

....Petty Witter said...

ps I've just noticed your random quote box which puts me in mind of my favourite 'not the fizziest drink in the fridge'.

George said...

This is a wonderful photo essay. I really like your composition as well as the subjects of your pictures.

Semper Wifey said...

Stopping by from SITS to say hello!

Cute post. Makes me wonder what everyone else is wondering about. :)

Sandra said...

beauitful shots, all of them, i especailly like the feet shots, a lot and the man sleeping with all the bags around him. i am wondering where you were hanging from on the from above? a balcony? a glass elevator? love those shots to. the quote is so true. i like that very much

Rizalenio said...

Your photos scream LIFE. This is one of subjects that I really love in photography. Awesome selection.

ΑΘΗΝΑ said...

It's strange when the feelings and the actions of a person can be seen in a photo!

Betty Manousos@ CUT AND DRY said...

aw, petty, thank you. it's a chinese saying, i think. xo

Kelly said...

What a clever post! One truly can look at a photo and come up with a million stories to go with it!

Betty Manousos@ CUT AND DRY said...

sandra, i was just hanging from debenhams store's rolling stairs, and it wasn't easy at all, haha!

Rui Pires said...

Oh the joy of following one's heart and letting it take flight in or out of an airplane! ;)

Artscapes said...

I daydream this fantasy every time a jet flies over head. I wonder where they're going or where have they bee? Where do I want to go. :)

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

I really like the quote.Sometimes I tend to take the common things for granted,but what if I had never seen them before.Hmm,makes me want to pay closer attention to every little detail.

Bob Bushell said...

Betsy from Tennessee said...

I love to people-watch also... There's a story behind each person you pictured.... Makes one wonder what that story is, doesn't it????

I love to sit and people-watch at places like malls or airports... It's just so much fun...

Great post and photos AND words....
Hugs,
Betsy

SquirrelQueen said...

Live with open eyes and an open mind, travel whenever possible.

Have a wonderful weekend Betty.

Hugs,

Georgia said...

I love that spontaneous photoshoot!

Armand Cordero said...

really great image of the people from above. my favourite photographer is Martin Parr (so annoyed I missed a lecture he gave recently at Kingston Uni, anyway...), he did a set of images of individual people from above, really outlines the crown/forehead/nose features.

also i like the homeless person photo, in the winter in london i kept seeing homeless people with really cool hats !

Betty Manousos@ CUT AND DRY said...

aw, welcome, fabio!!

Ms. A said...

While I love the fact that flying gets you places faster, the flying itself, I hate.

Arti said...

I love to travel though I not been outside my homeland India... But then there is so much to see here that one lifetime is not enough to see whole of India!!
Came through Petty Witters blog, you have a wonderful space here, will come here often.
Have a lovely day:-)

Pastor Dennis said...

Jesus said, He who has ears to hear, let him hear." and that goes for letting our eyes see, as well. Too often we just don't. These pictures of yours remind us to see. Thanks!

Inger-M said...

These pictures are great captures of people in all shapes and sizes! I'm not a good observer of people, but my husband is, and you are obviously one too!

Very interesting people and places ! Travel is always an adventure and an opportunity to meet others - and funny thing is that people are the same the world over, in a different sort of way.

reanaclaire said...

hello Betty.. great coming by here to visit your blog.. thanks for coming by earlier..

La sonrisa de Hiperión said...

Estupendas todas las fotos. Geniales. Buen fin de semana.

Saludos y un abrazo.

Unknown Mami said...

Having my kids helped me open my eyes again because they haven't seen "it" before. It helps me not take things for granted. I shouldn't have needed children to remind me of this, but I'm being honest.

Sandra said...

I'm so bummed Betty! The only pictures that are showing up for some reason are the ones of the feet walking on the stone walkway and the homeless person!!!

KrippledWarrior said...

I would imagine then, in my mind, It never happened. Such is the way of separate reality. I loved the perspective overhead photos. Excellent job.

Ted said...

I love random pictures.
Prabably the best way to take photographs. =)

KikiMo said...

I wish I could obseve people so good like you.

Leovi said...

Beautiful and varied series. Without a doubt my favorite is the legs with ripped jeans.

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

I love the way you captured the everyday, but in a special way. It is fun to take the "common" and turn it to allow what can become mundane to be seen with new eyes. Humans are infinitely fun to watch!

There are so many places I would love to visit. It seems like there is never enough time or money for exotic travels though. (At least not while my kids are young. Maybe when we retire?)

diane b said...

Great angles and light in your photos. Provoking text too. I would like to fly to USA to see my daughter and grandson.

Pat Tillett said...

A fantastic group of photos Betty!
I love candids so much.
