The Travel Lady In Her Shoes Blog
I love photography, traveling, gardening, reading, and eating good food! My blog "The Travel Lady In Her Shoes" is all about the ins and outs of traveling, with lots of pictures for viewing! When I am not traveling, I live in a small town in the south, where I never have to shovel snow again!

My idea of a book club!
A fairy tale village in the south bohemian region of the Czech Republic. I’ll be writing many posts about it, it was so beautiful! Stay tuned!
Todays assignment. Swarm: To fly off together in a group, to move in great numbers. I hate swarming! I hate big groups and trying to wedge myself into the melee to get a picture! The road I was traveling on was blocked off. What? What is going on? I might as well get out and take a look see. I wiggled my way into the crowd along the street. “What are we waiting for?” I asked the policeman. “The Tour de France is coming through town,” he replied.
OMG! Where is my camera? Swoosh, swoosh, and they’re here and gone just like that! Two seconds and gone! The Ultimate Swarm! Enjoy!
Need I say more? Today the photo is all about Movement! Click fast and Enjoy!
I LOVE ARCHITECTURE! I am always amazed by texture, shapes, curves, color, and style. These are my pictures for today, all taken in Bruges, Belgium, a great city for architecture!
Part of our assignment was to convert a picture to black and white to bring out the features of the architecture.
I always look for unusual ironwork and lighting fixtures when I travel. It can be very intricate, as shown here.
This picture reveals great architecture in the buildings, stonework and ironwork. I was lucky to get all three in one shot! First the picture in color, and following, the same picture in black and white.
I particularly like to photograph unusual buildings arranged at odd angles. This was the beautiful restaurant called the Vlaamsche Pot. The architecture drew me to it, but in addition, the food was fabulous! Notice the lighting sconce? The pops of color? Throw in foliage and bicycles! Perfect!
I love RED! So here is the Pop of Color for today’s challenge. Enjoy!
This picture is a mystery to me! It was taken at Christmas on the streets of Paris. That tree was not white! However, it must have had some kind of lighting on it. My first reaction, when I saw the picture, was to delete it, but the more I looked at it the more I liked it! It was taken on my cellphone, because it was pouring and I didn’t want to take out my camera. Enjoy!
Today’s photography assignment is to capture an image of warmth, using the sun as your source. Ok, here is the skyline of Budapest, Hungary as the sun is setting! Enjoy!
Natural Beauty at it’s finest! I love the colors, texture, shapes and design of God’s handiwork! Enjoy!
