Animals in Captivity

It's so sad to see any animal in captivity. Watching videos of the horrible things humans do to animals really does break my heart...
Oh, poor creatures...they are put in unnatural settings and forced into artificial enclosures on concrete behind bars.

Are we getting an educational benefit from zoo-going or circus-going?

Hmmm...not an easy question to answer.
Thoughts? xx

Hey you! Ducks need a pond to swim in...

Every animal, farm animal deserves a good life.

I love Camera Critters. :)

Wholesome Awesome: Devon, England Photos

Drakes Island from Torpoint, Cornwall.

This is a photograph of autumnal warmth, with the setting sun casting a pink glow, and the beautiful colours heating up the lovely Drakes Island early in the afternoon.

I'm back home after a pleasant, issue-free journey to Devon, England visiting friends and relatives and I am excited to catch up with all your blogs and comments.
I really love to travel and continue to use my travels as inspiration.
Travel is more than just going to a place; it's an inner journey as well. Journeys tell a lot about who we are and what we can be. In essence, every journey is a journey into a rediscovery of our identity. Don't you think?

Exploring the gorgeous Devon countryside was really an amazing experience. My good friend and I had such a great time on our day trips; just grabbing our cameras, tripods, wellies and jumping in the car was really pure fun; actually we had a blast!
I'd love to share a bit of my journey with you through pictures, if you'd like to see.
Take a trip with me, won't you? To some place beautiful and inviting...

Bovisand Beach, Devon, UK. A beautiful beach of yellow sand with cliffs either side, just outside of Plymouth.
Dartmoor National Park, Devon, England. I absolutely love the beauty of English countryside.
Low River Dart at Spitchwick; a  beautiful little valley of the river Dart on the edge of Dartmoor.

Beautiful cottages.

Devon has beautiful meadows and rolling hills with friendly sheep.
Plymouth Barbican, south Devon, UK. Glorious and jolly.

Totnes, is a fabulous historic town with a Norman castle, and beautiful buildings dating from medieval times.
We absolutely enjoyed strolling through the past.

There were a few of cobblestone and brick lanes and roads that I couldn't stop photographing.
We often ended up having lunch in several cozy restaurants and pubs...
Pork pie. Yummy!
"Devon Cream Tea" (Tea taken with a combination of scones, clotted cream and jam), swoon! We had lots and lots of delicious Cornish Pasty (a must!). 

Aah, Devon will always remain fondly in my heart. xx

Meeting With Old Friends

I'm heading off to jolly old England to meet with two good friends of mine I haven't seen them in years.
As you read this I am probably on my flight to Devon, England. I might even be devouring (blush!) delicious fruit scones with clotted cream and having a nice cup of tea.

As I write this I can already smell the freshness of the gorgeous English countryside.
So I probably won't be able to do my posts regularly, but I will continue to answer emails, read and comment on your lovely blogs.
I'll see you all back here soon! xx

P.S. Please excuse that I'll be slow to get back to you.

What Is Your Favourite Photograph Subject?

Plymouth Barbican, Devon UK.
Westminster Bridge and surrounding landmarks, London.
London buildings.

I love to record and document the little things and details of life, and all I just want is to freeze the moments in time.
I like to try and take unique and rare photos when I'm out and about city or nature and enjoy trying different perspective.
I also love taking shots of the scenery around me as I love Nature with all its beauty and diversity.
(Landscapes, flowers, fruits, sunsets, beaches...)
So, my favourite subjects to photograph are: Nature, buildings, and last but not least, scenes from everyday life.

What about you? xx
