Photography Friday: Scotland

I’m reaching back into the archives again for this one. Two years ago at this time the hubby and I were traveling the UK, exploring new territories in Scotland and taking him to special family locales in England. Yesterday I spent some time thinking about that trip, as it was the anniversary of the Battle of Culloden, a date well known by all those obsessed (as I am) with the Outlander series. A somber reminder then of an otherwise wonderful trip.

We’re so desperate to go back and explore more of the beautiful Scottish Highlands, and I love the idea of visiting the Lake District in England, but who knows when that may happen.

Wishing all a happy weekend!

Photography Friday: Architecture

I had so much fun going through my archives last week, that I thought I would do a few more posts that include some of my older stuff. I’ve been blessed to have the opportunities to travel quite a bit, and like any good tourist, have documented much of the amazing architecture I have seen along the way. Here’s a sampling of some of that work.
