Great photos. Originals? The problem with traveling is that you have to deal with foreigners.

Happy Mute Monday!

These photos are gorgeous! Did you take any of them? Have you been to all these places? I'm addicted to travel in the abstract. Because I hate to fly and I hate hotel rooms. So, I'm patiently waiting for someone to invent teleportation so I can do Paris by day and my own bedroom by night.

Heh...

no, sadly Aunty din't take these--though I have mostly every single image displayed in mah own collection of photos, but not in B&W.

Yes, MOI, I'se been to these amazin' places. (only 10,000 more to go!) One secret of the hotel thang is to stay in monasteries--the barest of necessities mean ya doan spend too much time in them, so youse out lookin' at stuff. BUT when ya go to a hotel--git a good one--I likes the small boutique ones like St. Regis in Paris. (which I cain't afford no mo)

Yep, Troll-Man, them foreigners is part of the package. But I gits a happy surprise and some is delightful.

Aunty Belle said...

Oh an' TROLL,

some of them foreigners is yankees!

Fabulous photographs, Aunty.
This reminds me of two things. The first is to get offa my ass and start taking pictures for my blog and, two, to get offa the same duff and get travelling again.

Gorgeous pics and just impossible to pick favourites. I just love black & white photography and these are very special.

Happy Mute Monday.

My Late MIL was addicted to travel, spending half of her time living out of suitcases. I knew her time was short when she told me she couldn't travel anymore. I recently found foreign money she had saved, just in case she went back to these exotic places. Being a Travel Junkie is a true addiction... but there are worse things to spend money on.

Beautiful collection of photos. Happy MM. xoxxo.

Sign me up for your addiction! Passport is good and I am ready to depart for someplace warm, sunny and architecturally rich! Great job as always Belle, Happy MM.

I'm thinking you are through with your editorial wrestling match.
You certainly have been around the neighborhood!

Gorgeous photos and I'd be addicted to traveling too, if I could afford to just pack up and go when I want!!! That said, I've been quite a few places I never dreamed I'd see. Great MM.
