I took this photo while visiting Hawaii with Matya. As we stood on the shores of Kauai soaking in the last warm rays of sun, I noticed that darkness was encroaching on the land faster than the sun could fight back. Hawaii is beautiful, even in darkness.

At a Halloween party last year, I spotted these pumpkins which appeared to burn with Fall Fevor and made me yearn for pumpkin pie! I love how the orange skin of the pumpkin glows in this image.

When I visited Brugge, I made sure to eat a lot of chocolate, drink some Belgium beer and visit the Belfry in the town square. It was there I met this lady with her divine gaze. I hope one day to visit Brugge again.

The Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC is Massive. One feels diminutive when standing within its walls. Pride swells within your chest as you gaze out across the Tidal Basin toward the other memorials scattered across Washington D.C.

These Beauty Queens arrived about halfway though the Fremont Parade. Their eyes lit up when they saw the mirror and squabbles broke out as each fought to have the mirror to themselves. It is amazing how one little thing can bring about such joy and such passion.

This week's Photo Friday theme is "Order" which reminded me of these magnets in one of the many Amsterdam markets. These were everywhere and one of my travelmates slowly grew obsessed with purchasing as many different kinds of these minature houses as possible. I purchased a few for family but Jen really outdid herself on that trip.

Another photo from my visit to the Fremont Fair. This dog was enjoying the parade next to my group on the sidewalk and of course figured out that Julie was the one to impress. He wiggled his way over and in the midst of mad petting, I snapped this photo. I think the dog just looks so happy here, as most dogs do when they get the chance to meet Julie.
