Serene is defined as, “calm, peaceful and untroubled,” which is exactly what we wish for dear friends and family during these difficult times. Its seems only suiting that the image below was taken in California, home to those that could use serenity in their lives the most. May peace wash over you.

They say most things in life are temporary; nothing lasts forever. Is that my forever? My kids forever? Mankind’s forever? If we enjoy something, find something that we can appreciate, shouldn’t we make it last as long as we can?
We enjoy hiking, a lot. Unfortunately, the really nice places to hike, are obvious to mankind’s impact on the environment and in particular, glaciers. See them while you can.
We welcome you to see our other posts on glaciers…

On a recent hike in the canton of Jura, Switzerland, we ended in the town of St. Ursanne, a medieval walled-in town with a 12 century church. This unique area is considered the Jewel of the Jura, and a quick visit, it is easy to see why. Fascinating architecture, set in the midst of the Jura white stone mountains, is almost a step back in time. Below are the windows of the cloister next to the church.

The Merian Gärten is perhaps one place in Basel, Switzerland we frequent the most. All throughout the year, one can find many varieties of flowers, plants and trees. On a recent visit this August, armed with just a macro lens, we set off to see what we could capture. The details, textures, and structures are always captivating. Here is just a sampling from our visit.

Just outside of Porto lies the architectural location of “Piscina das Mares”, an interesting beach pool designed by Rem Koolhaas. We had stopped by while driving along the coast on a windy day, the street vendor’s tent smoked out the intersection while he roasted chestnuts.
