English Blues

It is inevitable: I go somewhere on vacation, be it Santa Fe, Seattle, or San Francisco. I end up shooting pictures of blue things. So of course I did it in England, too. Love these shots. Hope you do, too.

  1. Beautiful pictures, Juli--you sure have a good eye. And I am enjoying your "journeys in blue"--a reminder of how many shades there are of that lovely color!


  2. Beautiful blues! Gorgeous photography! (You could have a career doing this, you know!) Thanks for the visual treat of visiting the blues in England -- looks they like blue as much as you do! xoxo
