Relaxing with Books

Celebrity Silhouette Library         2018©Isadora DeLaVega

I loved the B & W photograph of the library below but decided to add a color photograph too.

Cruises have sea days. The ship navigates from an island it’s just left to another which could take 2 days.

It’s a good time to enjoy gambling, a movie, swimming, a spa treatment or relax with a book in the library.

Reading a book can make you sleepy. Perhaps, the sea air or the slight movement of the ship lulled her to sleep.

A Photo a Week – 100 Years Old

These ornate sculptures of the Madonna and Child are housed at the John and Mabel Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida. The figures celebrate Mary, the Mother of Jesus, who has inspired artisans, crusaders, saints and mothers worldwide. The sculpted figures express virtues. Mary’s character illustrates devotion, mercy, compassion and deep love.Sculpture Madonna & Child.web

Images of the Virgin and Child were virtually everywhere in the Renaissance home.

In the 1300’s and 1400’s representations of the Virgin and Child became increasingly popular.

Images like these emphasize the relationship between mother and child

and promote the Virgin’s role as intercessor for the salvation of humankind.

This relief sculpture is meant to recall carved marble, rather than the more inexpensive terra-cotta of which it was made. The sculptural quality of the figures in the painted image also point to the artist’s interest in three-dimensional sculpted models.

Liquid Diversity

At the Mote Marine Aquarium in Sarasota, Florida, children and adults can touch the stingrays in the pond.

My grandson was enjoying the idea of touching them. I loved the way the water

liquid floated and showed movement in this photograph.

Dropplets of liquid from a downpour sitting on my car.

The color of my car is a soft gold instead of this beautiful blue. Interesting … !!!

Before entering the Antigua & Barbuda Museum, sits this copper pot at the first step filled with water.

Above the pot is a pipe. It looks like it’s supposed to direct liquid into it.

Odd Red Screw

 

Wandering the streets of Barbados in search of their museum,

we came across this odd metal screw and chain hanging from a post.

I never saw the man when I took the photograph. 

I was focused on what the purpose of the screw might be.

Any ideas???

On the Farm

A horse alone in a pasture – Costa Rica

Two chickens – Costa Rica

Chickens wandered around a roadside fruit stand.

Our tour guide took us there so we could get some cold beverages.

Chickens were everywhere but scurried away when anyone approached. 

This one in the front liked to give side glances. It was truly funny.

A Rogue Chicken – St. Thomas VI

This chicken wandered off from his buddies at a park in the center of town on St.Thomas VI.

While waiting for our tour bus, I snapped him searching for some nibbles. 

At the time, I didn’t think I’d ever post these photographs.

Surprise – a livestock challenge …

Enjoy ….. Isadora 😎
