Reflecting Back

It has been busy since I got back and I’m slowly catching up with everything. It’s been good to have some air to breathe.

I have been thinking a lot about my trip and how I still have so many photos to process, and I thought I might look at some that I have already done. Looking back really, it brings back so many great memories.

I’m off to take photos again today. I am going to go and take photos of something I should have done ages ago, so I am just going to leave you with a gallery of some of my favourite photos from my trip. I hope you have a great day.

  1. A very nice recap of your visit to the U.S.A. I particularly like the jelly fish. They are wonderful animals to photograph.

    • thanks Tim, I loved looking back at all the photos as well. I loved the jellyfish too, wish we had them here like that.

  5. What a lot of stunning images. You had a wonderful trip.

    • Thank you, and yes, I really did, it was fantastic.

  6. I have enjoyed going through the photos. Lovely, all, and places I enjoy seeing, even second hand. Only to NYC have I been of all the places you uploaded pictures for now. Mostly not the same places, but you’ve brought wonderful memories back to me. Most particularly when I was able to take a couple of “skyline” photos while at a party in Manhattan. Thank you!

    October 9, 2015
    • That’s great to hear Liz, such wonderful places to visit. The skyline is amazing, I loved being able to do that, would love to find places in Melbourne that I could get those. Thank you Liz.

      October 9, 2015
  7. Especially love the jellies! πŸ™‚

    October 9, 2015
    • How cool are they, thanks Tom. πŸ™‚

  8. The photo gallery from you US trip is gorgeous. I’ve seen most of them in your posts, but enjoyed seeing them again. Such a rich variety of subjects, mirroring the country itself, perfectly pictured!

    October 9, 2015
    • Thank you Tiny, yes, I’ve shown them all before, it was great to see them again and just pick a few from each place.

      October 9, 2015
  9. About half of these are quite familiar scenes to me. That is the ones from California. I live on the western edge of Nevada and get to California at least a couple times a year.

    October 9, 2015
    • Someone else, Liz, I think said the other half were familiar to her. I envy you where you live, that must be an amazing place to call home. Thanks Edith.

  10. What a great and diverse collection, your talent really shines in every and each image. My favorite is that beautiful Monterey Bay Aquarium Jellyfish, what an amazing capture.

    October 9, 2015
    • Thank you LorΓ© I loved taking photos there, I love those jellyfish, wish we could photograph them here like that.

      October 9, 2015

  17. So Beautiful Leanne πŸ™‚ Yosemite is wonderful, and you have made Brooklyn Bridge magnificent!

    October 9, 2015
    • Thank you Debi, I love Yosemite, wish I could have spent more time there, hopefully one day. The Brooklyn Bridge was incredible as well. πŸ™‚

      October 9, 2015
      • you’re welcome πŸ™‚ I find it fascinating that while I’m not into paintings of urban scenes at all; I always love looking at your photos of city compositions. Brooklyn Bridge for example.

        October 10, 2015
      • I can understand that, it is nice to see what other artists do and how they interpret things, I love looking at paintings of architecture too, gives me inspiration.

        October 10, 2015
  18. You must be finding it hard to readjust..i always do after a break..but i am so happy you have these wonderful shots to share and i imagine a lot of fun working with them πŸ™‚

    October 9, 2015
    • I have, though I am settling back into life again, it hasn’t been easy. It has been good, love going back and looking at them, looking back and remembering all the places. Thanks Bev. πŸ™‚

      October 9, 2015
      • I am glad..you needed to have a break form the foot pounding of the streets πŸ™‚

        October 9, 2015
      • Oh yes, my feet are very happy not to be walking that much again. I wasn’t prepared for that. πŸ™‚

  20. Stunning photos Leanne, looks like you had a fantastic time!

    October 9, 2015
    • Thank you, I did, it was fantastic.

      October 10, 2015
  21. Those are classic (gorgeous!) Brooklyn Bridge shots. It’s probably our most photogenic bridge. I think it’s more interesting than the Golden Gate, but the Gate wins on background (usually).

    October 10, 2015
    • Oh yes, sometimes you have to go with the classic. I think you are right there, though there is the GG as well. I loved both, but wish I had had more time to explore some other bridges as well, New York has so many great bridges.
