peggy’s travels

Oh how I wish I had the talent to take photos like these. Peggy Wong’s travels are not only enviable, but her images make her destinations look like places out of dreams. Cadiz, Bordeaux, Casablanca, Concarneau, San Simeon, just to name a few. Advertisements

old and new in barcelona

Loving the stark backdrop for this gorgeous collection of antiques. It doesn’t hurt that the apartment is in the beautiful city of Barcelona. Mixed in are the contemporary pieces which compliment (but don’t deter) from the collection: the white Barcelona chairs, the sleek dining table with its black chairs, the white coffee table, among a few … Continue reading

I fell in love with the black & white series from Istambul by Ara Güler. There are dozens more where these came from!  Mr. Güler has been famously photographing his native country for a long time (he’s 83 years old), often being called “the Eye of Istambul.” I’m amazed by the depth of these photographs, … Continue reading

It has an exceptionally well–preserved werf dating from 1690. A fruit and vegetable garden of botanical diversity supplies a remarkable restaurant. Guests staying at an exclusive … Continue reading
