Souvenirs – Coveted and Collected Memories from Our Travels

Thumbnail image for Souvenirs – Coveted and Collected Memories from Our Travels by Gina "SuuperG" Stark November 1, 2013 Travel and Adventures

Share Ahhh don’t we love the contributions of the French? Croissants, romantic accordion music, water lilies, the Statue of Liberty, expert flirtations, and stolen vocabulary.  The word “souvenir” means “to remember”, and if you’ve been to France, it certainly is memorable. Shamelessly plugging my beloved Idyllwild haunt, Cafe Aroma, on my bike tour through Paris. […]

ShareThis week I have happily joined the #FriFotos team on Twitter as a cohost, and even contributed the suggestion for the theme!  So you can imagine all of the sifting and sorting I’ve been doing of the various photos I’ve taken on my travels, and pondering the myriad interpretations of the glass theme.  The cover […]

Horizons – A Photo Gallery for #FriFotos

ShareHorizons are both visual and representational, drawing our attention in a mesmerizing fashion.  For this week’s theme for photo sharing on Twitter, I selected several images…especially because I live both coastal-y and mountain-ly.   And with my hiking, I’m often gazing out over gorgeous horizons and snapping photos to both share and try – sometimes […]

#FriFotos – What is the West to You?

Share    West. It seems like a simple theme.  But isn’t “west” relative to where you are? I feel like I’m pretty much residing in the quintessential “west” being at the farthest end of the North American continent – merely a few blocks from the Pacific Ocean. Trust me; I’m grateful. So, maybe it’s a […]

#FriFotos: The Encounter Restaurant at LAX – a Retro Symbol of LA

ShareThis week’s theme for the #FriFotos sharing frenzy on Twitter is ‘symbols’.  Being a native born Los Angelina (I escaped successfully 25 years ago) I thought this snapshot of the Encounter Restaurant at LAX to be fitting. My favorite part of the photo is how impromptu it was.  I was literally awaiting pick-up at Los […]

ShareToday’s #FriFoto theme is sparkle.  What girl doesn’t like sparkle?  Well, this particular girl likes to find it in nature, actually (OK OK, I know precious gems are natural, but you know what I mean…).  As I perused my photo collection, it seems my favorite sparkly source is water. This makes perfect sense as I […]

Share                I love lights and sparkle and glimmer and shimmer as much as anyone, but I think nature can fit the bill for “festive” as well. Today’s Twitter #FriFoto theme is just that; festive.  My mind turned to this one recent favorite snapshot I took of nearby Lake […]

#FriFotos Gelato Under the Arches – Bologna, Italy

Thumbnail image for #FriFotos Gelato Under the Arches – Bologna, Italy by Gina "SuuperG" Stark December 14, 2012 Travel and Adventures

ShareSo lovely you almost can’t touch it. Almost. Sweets! Somehow when we’re traveling we justify calorie-laden, creamy, rich indulgences more than when we’re in our home routine.  Perhaps because we walk miles a day, performing industrial level sight-seeing.  Either way, I had no qualms when I delved into this, the first gelato sampling of my […]

#FriFotos – The “Columns” of the Old Ocean Grove Pier, Pre Sandy, New Jersey

Thumbnail image for #FriFotos – The “Columns” of the Old Ocean Grove Pier, Pre Sandy, New Jersey by Gina "SuuperG" Stark December 7, 2012 Travel and Adventures

ShareSo I’m discovering this #FriFoto sharing on Twitter has a given theme!  I start searching for columns, thinking of course I’ll post some dramatic, sun-washed columns from either Seville or Bologna.  Then I scan past this photo I snapped last summer, underneath the now extinct Ocean Grove pier in New Jersey… The sand was hot […]
