Once Apon a Spring Day

There was one day in April my friends and I sat outside on the lawn at our college for over five hours. Usually, none of us are the picture takers, but this time I decided to bring a camera along. My allusive friends were captured on camera!

For some reason the best photos were of these two, Mark and Monica.

This next one is probably my favourite. You can tell so much about them from this one shot:

I also got some great photos of the foliage in the spring

I feel like these pictures look like they could be either spring or fall, and that's what's so neat about them. It was a beautiful day.

The Majorelle Garden

Originally owned by Jacques Majorelle, who lived in Morocco for most of his life, the garden's most recent owner was Yves Saint-Laurent and Pierre Bergé. The garden is full of fantastic blue, yellow, and orange buildings and plant pots


Last spring break my family and I went to Marrakech, Morocco. On the first day, we had a guide show us some of the well known sites around the city, like these tombs:

Where we happened to see this adorable cat


We also saw these palaces

The entire city is just so colourful

I couldn't resist taking a picture of this cat amongst the statues :)

Kroller Muller Museum

The summer before I went to college, my mother and I went together to the Kroller Muller Museum which is located in the Hoge Veluwe National Park in Otterlo, for anyone interested in going there.

The museum is in the middle of a park

And to get to the museum they have all these white bikes you can use.

Around the museum they have this fantastic sculpture garden:


The sculptures weren't the only pretty things in the park. So I added in the natural beauty around them!

I love the colour of this rock

These stairs literally lead into the sky. Apparently people used to be able to climb them, but when we were there a sign was up saying, "The Stairs are shut after an accident and are being evaluated for structural integrity" or something along those lines. Makes me wonder...

Don't these look yummy?

The next sculpture was really cool because from the side it looked like this:

But from the bottom...

It looked like this! Woah.

I don't exactly know what it is, but it's definitely cute!

Let's Go In Another Direction

I have all these photographs I wish I could share with the world, so here goes that.

The first ones are from a hilltop city thirty minutes outside of Nice, France. They're from I believe two years ago. Probably the first time I had a camera of my own to take pictures with.

It was a cloudy day but still absolutely beautiful.

A lot of the photographs I took involved plants or flowers contrasting with non-organic material.

On all the fountains there were these cute little fish signs saying whether or not the water was drinkable!

I love how you can see the lace through the glass.

There were so many beautiful iron gates with vines growing all over them.

I wonder if any light comes through this window?
