Monday Morning Blues – The Chrysler Building in New York City

I took this shot in January 2018. One of many iconic buildings in the city, it evokes the special buzz you only get when visiting the Big Apple.

Sacre Coeur, Montmartre, Paris

Monday Morning Blues – Sacre Coeur in Paris

Montmartre is my favourite place to stay in Paris and the Sacre Coeur is literally the heart of the area. I hope it won’t be much longer before we view this welcome sight again.

Mount Ararat, Armenia

Monday Morning Blues – Mount Ararat in Armenia

Mount Ararat is an almost mystical place that you hear about as a child for being the final resting place of Noah’s Ark once the flood waters had subsided. This rather grainy photo was taken from the train as we approached Armenian capital Yerevan shortly after sunrise following a long overnight journey from Batumi in […]

Monday Morning Blues – Fisherman on Lake Ohrid in North Macedonia

I took this shot from the balcony of our accommodation in 2006. We travelled to Ohrid by bus from Skopje and had a fabulous time by the beautiful lake.

Monday Morning Blues – Uzbekistan Train Stations

I have magical memories of my 2018 trip to Uzbekistan. We zipped about on the train taking in Bukhara, Samarkand, Khiva & Tashkent. Here are a couple of the station buildings.

Monday Morning Blues – Lake Nahor, Azerbaijan

My last trip outside of Europe was to Azerbaijan in late 2019. When and where will the next one be?

Monday Morning Blues – Holy Island, Northumberland

This morning’s picture comes from just over a week ago, which I took on our UK tour. We arrived on the island by boat from Seahouses and found the place almost deserted as the tide was in making it inaccessible by car at that time. You can see the 16th Century built Lindisfarne Castle in […]

Monday Morning Blues – Carlisle Cathedral Interior

I was surprised at how beautiful Carlisle Cathedral is. Definitely the highlight of the Cumbrian city.

Monday Morning Blues – Knaresborough Viaduct in North Yorkshire, UK

It was a lovely day yesterday in northern England. We drove to Northumberland and nipped off the A1 en route. The viaduct across the River Nidd has frequent trains crossing on the way to and from Harrogate. Built in 1851, it replaced the original bridge that collapsed shortly after completion in 1848. Thankfully nobody was […]

Monday Morning Blues – Grand Canal Venice.

Well done Italy. Boy do I feel blue!
