I have a love affair with cobalt blue, so these various other dark blues were also calling to me. I so, so enjoyed all these blues, and the beauty from your camera as you included us on this fantastic trip.

It also helped me warm a bit as I enjoyed the beautiful warmth of the Caribbean. And it was so surprising how warm this cool blue color felt as I gazed at these glorious photos.

All those blues are calling to me! Beautiful photos Caterina.

Caterina Giglio said...

Hey Catherine, thank you and thanks for stopping by the sweet life! I read thru your blog yesterday, but did not have time to chat.. will make it a point soon!!

Your idea "if money was no object, I would put art and music back in schools..." is brilliant. Thanks for the comment. I am kind of self centered and don't always think of the bigger picture when I write.

I did want to say on another topic that I have been following your posts on tumblr and I feel like you see the same kinds of things I look for when I'm taking pictures out in the world. I love looking at your page. Just beautiful sights for my eyes. When I show people MY pictures after a trip, their eyes glaze over after a few minutes. YOU are my kind!

Tammy said...

Amazing blues. Gorgeous images!

As for the rocks on graves, I didn't even ask my husband why we were doing it. But I think it is just a way of keeping the grave site tidy and to show respect. He bought bags of white stones that we poured over the graves and then spread around the mound and I pulled up the dried weeds that were there.

Thanks for stopping by. Best wishes, Tammy

layers said...

what a beautiful post of blues.. blue skies and blue water with so many shades... very lovely and are you a lucky one.

Caterina Giglio said...

Catherine, I actually thought your idea of being world ruler was brilliant... how cool would it be to have an artist as the ruler of the world.. glad I am YOUR kind, that is mutual!

Caterina Giglio said...

Tammy, I think it is fabulous, white stones seem so reverent for some reason, thanks for popping by! x

Hey Jean, I thought everyone in the northland would appreciate warmth... I will bring you more!! xo

Caterina Giglio said...


Donna, believe you me... I AM a lucky girl... life is good! Thanks for coming over... to check out the blue skies!
