Shanghai Sunny Day Equals Good Views

Shanghai Sunny Day

Having a Shanghai sunny day is not a frequent affair in the winter season here….so when it happens it is a great opportunity to take good photos and enjoy the views.  

Here are some photos I have taken from the Wanda Reign on the Bund – a hotel with a terrace bar on the 21st floor, which offers good vantage points into both Pudong and Puxi directions.

Sanya Trip: Haitang Bay Waves Photos

Haitang Bay Waves

Some of the more exciting experiences when visiting Haitang Bay in Sanya is to take long walks along the beach and observe the Haitang Bay waves, enjoy and take tons of photos.

Which I did.  Here they are some of the photos… The rest I will keep uploading every so often.

Coming and Going – Air Travel in Images…

Air Travel in Images

Travel, whether on business or leisure, is something my family and I do a lot of.  I have traveled over 2M miles on one of the major US carriers and then there are the numerous flights on a large number of other airlines – United, Eva, Air China, China Air, Korean, Air India, Thai, Malaysia Airlines, Dragon Air, China Eastern, China Southern, Hainan Airlines, Shenzhen Airlines, SAS, Norwegian, … the list can continue a bit longer.

Even after all this, I am always amazed at the beautiful views one can get while on the plane – views of the airports, other aircraft, the sky…

So, I decided to put together some of those views in a series of photo postings…Here we go with the first

Istanbul, a Few Photos a Day – Topkapi Palace

Istanbul Topkapi Palace

The Istanbul Topkapi Palace (otherwise known in Turkish as Topkapı Saray) is a large palace located in the old town of Istanbul and is currently a museum.   The palace served as a main residence of the Ottoman Sultans until about 1856.

The palace complex consists of four main courtyards and many smaller buildings – which combined together form an intricate set of courtyards and somewhat different from one another structures.

  Let’s take a look at some photos from the Palace…

You can actually find a lot more on the palace and its calendar of events on the official web page.   Enjoy!

 

Sunsets in Austin – Incredible…

I have lived in Austin for almost 14 years (my family and I were out of the country for a couple of years in the middle of those years)….I think the sunsets of Austin are one of the memorable things about this great city.   Take a look:
