Holiday Photos 2015 - 2017 (at last!) - I told you I’d get round to it!

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

This blog post is long overdue, and it’s to notify you that I have now fully updated the Holiday Photograph Album, to include the holiday photographs we’ve taken on the following holidays from March 2015 to August 2017. If you are interested in looking at our photographs, there are a few….(and a special treat the Reviewer - Lindsey has included a few photos of herself, which is a rare treat!)

I’ll also include some written ”narration” because I’ve removed Lindsey’s catalog numbers, the link above will take you directly to the album if you want to go direct to the photos for specific holidays, click below

1. India & Bhutan (Feb/March 2015)

3. Jordan (March 2016 Postponed due to Accident)

4. Spain - Malaga, Cordoba, Seville, Granada (Sept 2016)

(Photos in this order - Malaga, Cordoba, Seville, Granada)

5. Jordan - (March 2017)

(Photos in this order - Amman, Jerash, Mount Nebo, Madaba, Shoback, Little Petra, Petra Day 1, Petra Day 2, Wadirum, Dead sea, East Desert Castles).

I have got an excuse, as you know I was involved in a car accident in 2016, which delayed me completing the album, and it does take a lot of work, as I have to resample all the photos, and manually code the website, and that involves my brain and some JAVA! (not coffee, computer programming!), and the computer the code was on has failed!

Anyway another Task on the To Do List - Completed!

CHILDLIKE, WITH MY EYES AND MIND WIDE OPEN

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

1428404731-7424_crop_1280_0

I returned to my childhood whilst watching the Punakha Tsechu. Watching stories unfold before my eyes, I started to believe in magic again, in demons and monsters, in angels and saints, casting away my cynical view on life. Bhutan is like that … it opens up the mind and soul!

Beautiful Scenery, Lovely People, Beautiful Bhutan!

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Dzong in Punakha, Bhutan

Dzong in Punakha, Bhutan

We spent all day here, at the festival, and had a picnic, with fellow Bhutanese people, inside the temple, on the grass at the entrance, and we shared our food with the local people, and young children, and the food that we didn’t eat we gave to the temple dogs! (at the next incarnation, dogs become incarnated as people in the human realm!).

Good Karma!

Bhutan is a very special place, I’ll remember the people and place for ever, it also has Beautiful Scenery!

  • Ometepe Island - Twin volcanic peaks rising from Lake Nicaragua

  • capital of Nicaragua
  • Roatan Island - Spectacular reefs and stunning beaches
  • Copan - Famous Maya ceremonial centre
  • Antigua - One of the finest colonial cities in Central America

Here is a taster, before the photos are uploaded to the album, of lagoons and craters, punctuated with steaming vents and pools of boiling mud (Active Volcano) in Rincon de la Vieja, located close to the Nicaraguan border in the Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica.

or directly here :- http://andysworld.org.uk/album/Kenya/index.html

Lindsey has sorted, and out of the original 1000+ photographs taken, these are the best 40%!

These photographs are straight from the camera, and re-sampled and reduced for viewing on the website, so they are not the original 12MegaPixel images, they have not been retouched either!

These were all taken with our new CANON PowerShot SX50 HS bridge camera
