Peace and Quiet

Sail Away

Sunset on the Nile, Luxor, Egypt

One of the things that surprised me most in Egypt was how quiet the Nile River is. Few if any motors or engines, puffed sails, and the countryside passing by while sailing. This shot was taken from my balcony of our small cruise ship while we were docked at Luxor. When I need to go to a calm place, I think about the river.

Less is More or Less

Sunset Views From The Pier on Mangapwani Beach

I have been trying to decide if the color or the black & white versions are the best for “less is more.” Sometimes the color, especially at sunset, can be a distraction. These shots were taken at the far the end of a pier as the sun was setting on Mangapwani Beach on Zanzibar.

Join Becky’s month of Spiky Squares: Spiky #24. Two rules. Must be Spiky somehow; there is a wide range of interpretations. The photo must be square. Thanks, Becky for another inventive challenge.
