Travel Photo Thursday: A New Perspective

First, a big thank you to all who commented on last week’s photo; Greece, we believe,  is one of the special places in the world.

This week’s Travel Photo Thursday photo was taken as we approached land after a six-day transatlantic crossing, during which time we had not seen another ship, bird or sign of life.  As we neared our first port of call, Madiera, some 300 miles off the coast of Africa, we spotted another ship setting sail – it was cause for us shutterbugs to race for our cameras. As I bent over for this angle a woman who'd been directing her husband's photo efforts, called out, “Look how she’s doing it, take one like that!”. . .making me laugh so hard I nearly miss the shot.

  1. Cool shot! It looks like a peace sign :)

  2. Great shot! I love the POV.

    Thanks for contributing to Travel Photo Thursday.

  3. Thanks to both of you for commenting. This is a reason to love Thursdays!

  4. You caught the perfect shot! I'm trying to imagine what it's like to be six days at sea with nothing in sight and then --- another ship! Maybe I'll have that experience too sometime.

  5. Cathy, We love transatlantic cruises because you can nab a good deal and those days at sea are incredible. It is such a treat to have days to stare at nothing but sea and sky. I hope you do get to experience it.


We have been having problems in recent weeks with our comment section and I am not quite sure how to fix it. Thanks for letting us know. Some comments have been coming in as emails, so I will respond to those as I get them.
