Here are a few of my favourite black and white portraits by acclaimed photographers.

EUROPEAN LINK PARTY...MY DESTINATION: ROME

Friday, 18 July 2014



I'm joining the fabulous Anita 
for her European Bloggers Link Party...and my chosen destination...

ROME



At the Spanish Steps...the perfect photo opportunity...


I have been fortunate to have visited Rome on many occasions but it was our
last trip in April this year when I truly fell in love with the city.
We had been invited by a friend who use to work for my husband to his
Ordination in Rome...it was an honour to be invited to such a special occasion
and left me quite speechless...we were so lucky to see Rome through new eyes...
the beauty of the churches...our friend assisting at his first mass service...and seeing the
masses with the Pope at the Vatican are experiences I will never forget
but mostly, the joy, happiness and contentment our friend has found is
truly moving and inspiring.



Rome is my favourite city...the food, the wines, the people, the scenery, the history...the weather
for me it is magical...
it has an impressive collection of art, sculpture, fountains, mosaics and frescos
and the beautiful gardens of Villa Borghese...the famous City Piazzas... some oh, so very majestic
are wonderful spots to sit and watch the world go to by...we love to do this...every walk
is punctuated with a 'Piazza Stop'!





Of course in Rome you see many fabulously dressed ladies...
the Italian style and flair...so polished, yet sexy and elegant too...
a lady from Rome who illustrates this perfectly is the
beautiful Isabella Rossellini...







When in Rome do as the Romans do with
Style...




Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck
Roman Holiday

OFF TO THE BEACH...

Thursday, 19 June 2014







Five glorious days next week with my daughter in Croatia...where we just want
to relax, talk, swim, talk, sunbathe, talk, eat and drink and simply enjoy...
all the wonderful holidays you have when your children are young, the memories, the
endless hours together...which you think will never end...but they do sadly...and I can't
wait to spend five days together...just the two of us...








HAPPY HOLIDAYS

















THE BEAUTY OF AUDREY

Tuesday, 17 June 2014






The exquisite charm, elegance and beauty of Audrey Hepburn
never fades...I have read nearly every book written about her...listened to 
her son talk about her at the Victoria and Albert museum and watched all her films...
for me she is incomparable.
Her beauty as a young woman was breathtaking and her beauty as a mature woman
exuded so much more... a serenity, compassion, humility, love and grace...such grace.




Audrey and Hubert de Givenchy






Audrey said of growing older...
"As the years go on, you see changes in yourself, but you've got to face that - everyone
goes through it...either you have to face up to it and tell yourself you're not going
to be eighteen all your life, or be prepared for a terrible shock when you see
the wrinkles and white hair.
Getting older doesn't frighten me, but I wish I didn't have to because I like
life a lot."
