Cousins making memories, strolling down a Parisienne street.

PhotoHunt: Dark

It's the hour before sunrise, sunrise, and New York in all her glory. You can see Freedom Tower in the distance (crane), which now graces the site of Ground Zero.

ABC Wednesday: B is for Beantown!

What else could it be? Boston, Beantown, Home of the Bruins, Red Sox and hopefully soon-to-be Patriots football team! Boston, capital of Massachusetts. Ex-governor Romney running for president. Home of Boston College (yeah!) - the only college football program most represented with college grads on each of the 2 teams vying for the Super Bowl.

PS: Wish there were a way to add music to this blog. Oh well, this will have to suffice:

PhotoHunt: Bliss

Thanks, K, for the nudge in getting me back with this photohunt blog too! From one to three photo entries per week -should keep me motivated. This week's theme is bliss. I could use the same photo that I used for 'bling' because after all it would be blissful if the Red Sox won another World Series this year, but I chose instead one of our favorite places to drop in when visiting Chicago. It's right on the river and pretty funky, The Purple Pig. Not only are the drinks good, the food - well, interesting - but most of all the people are the friendliest and heart-warming souls. Can't wait to get back there again.

PhotoHunt: Bling

Boston's beloved Red Sox team (well, beloved here with the exception of last year's play) has won two World Series Championships recently: 2004, when they finally broke the curse of the "Bambino" - Babe Ruth - and 2007. It was a truly fun time in Boston sport history.

My 'bling' this week is courtesy of an older gentlemen who has worked at Fenway Park, home to the Red Sox, for over 50 years. I took Ty on the Fenway Park tour last year and met him.

ABC Wednesday: A is for Architrave

ABC Round 10 here I come! I'm joining in the fun. A is for Architrave. Here's one on the Parthenon in Rome. Love this building's architecture. The word 'architrave' is a derivative to two words - one from Greek and one from Latin (how apropos) meaning 'main beam'.

PhotoHunt: Circular

Maybe it's because I'm hungry! Oh, and of course, the ball sculpture from London!

PhotoHunt: Bling

While i was in New York City's Union Square, I came upon this statue of Andy Warhol -- I think he could be the King of Bling in this statue....
