PhotoPOSTcard: Glamping in the Moroccan Sahara

Bucket list item: glamping under a sky full of stars in the Sahara desert. Check.

Despite a crescent moon hanging low in the sky, the milky way and a million other stars were visible in the night sky as I lay on a sand dune in the Sahara desert, looking up and contemplating the vastness of the universe.

Thanks to Merzouga Luxury Desert Camp for hosting such an amazing experience.

Thanks for visiting.

PhotoPOSTcard: Remembering With Flames

To commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the end of World/War I, 10,000 flames were lit nightly for eight nights in the moat surrounding the Tower of London. Beyond the Deepening Shadow is a public project designed to commemorate the lives of the fallen. A moving choral sound track also accompanied the flames and provided a somber setting as residents walked the full circle of the tower in order to take it all in.

Thanks for visiting.

PhotoPOSTcard: Remembering With Poppies

In Flanders fields the poppies blow between the crosses, row on row…

The first two lines of a poem by John McCrae remember the many lives lost in WWI. Since then, the poppy has become a symbol of veteran remembrance, especially in the UK.  Continue reading “PhotoPOSTcard: Remembering With Poppies”

PhotoPOPSTcard: The Tower Bridge at Night

Built in the late 1800’s, London’s iconic Tower Bridge is busy at all hours of the day and night. In advance of the 2012 London Olympics, the bridge received a new face lift as all the old paint was removed and the bridge was repainted in shades of blue and white. The Tower Bridge is near the Tower of London and both can be visited together.

Thanks for visiting.

PhotoPOSTcard: A Musical Coffee Break

London is well known for its theater scene. At any one time there can be over 40 productions to choose from. And, just like in New York, you can get good, last minute, inexpensive seats at a range of popular shows. There are a number of outlets that provide cheap tickets. I went through Encore Tickets and scored a third row seat for the musical Kinky Boots for about $35. As expected, the quality of the production was fantastic. And the best part was that I was able to take the Underground and was back at my hotel in about 20 minutes. No parking or driving hassles – just a lovely and relaxing evening out. An experience I highly recommend.

Thanks for visiting.

PhotoPOSTcard: Five Red Phone Boxes and a Ballerina

This row of five red phone boxes in Broad Court in Covent Garden, London are an Instagram staple. But what you don’t often see in the photos is the lovely bronze ballerina statue that sits right in front of them. The statue is by Italian artist Enzo Plazzota and celebrates the nearby Opera House and School of Ballet. Personally, I think the statue adds to the photo.

Thanks for visiting.
