Travel theme: Costume

I love costumes, I love dressing up for some special ocassion and I really love taking vintage photos.
A few years ago we visited Bulgary, we travelled around the coutnry and several days we spent by the sea at small town Pomorie. I really enjoyed the atmosphere there, specially evening walks on promenade and by the sea. Fortunatelly, the first evening I found a special stall, where they had a lot of beautiful colorful dresses and they were doing vintage photos.

We were looking in astonishment how a family with small girls were carefully dressed up, every little detail was handled.

Rumšiškés

Today I want to take ayou for a visit to one of the nicest Open Air museums Rumšiškés. It is located in Lithuania, on the hill above Kaunas sea (lake, in fact :-)). Museum was opened in 1966 and it has about 50 buildings mapping the village life in 4 parts of Lithuania. I love wooden buildings and wooden crosses, the place is so lovely. Enjoy my shots.

A Word A Week Challenge – Face

Lot of Faces for A Word A Week Challenge I found in a beautiful park in France, at the place called Clos Luce in the city of Amboise on Loire river. Leonardo da Vinci lived at the house and now you will find there his museum. Surrounding garden is very beautiful, with lots of devices invented by da Vinci, but also decorated with his works unusual way. Enjoy walking throug the park and meet some famous paintings.

Travel theme: Beaches

Last month I visited one beach, which was very nice and interesting for me, I am going to share it with you for this week’s Travel Theme. At south England, close to Porstmouth and Southampton there is an island called Isle of Wight. At this island there you can visit an Osborne house, complex, that was built for English Queen Victoria, her husband Albert and their family. Part of the properties is also beach, at which the Queen learned to swim.

For getting to the water she used a special carriage, that brought her to the water directly from the beach.

More info about it you can find on this shot.

Made for a queen

Unfortunatelly the day we visited the beach was very cold and cloudy, so we were not able to swim, but at least we were collecting nice stones and shells.
