About these pages

grand-tour-travel-poster-75

I am a keen photographer, artist, dabbler-with-writing and traveller. I hope these pages will accurately reflect these interests.

What I’m doing now:
I’m taking Sebastian Michael’s AWAKE course. I am continually learning new things about Photoshop Elements. I am starting to learn Photoshop as well as improving my photo editing skills. Iphone photography is my latest interest – another huge learning curve. Now that I’m something of a nomad I’ve had to turn my attention from the creation of mixed media pieces – unfortunately I can’t carry my complete stash around with me – towards more portable media so I’ve turned to photography, digital art and digital scrapbooking in order to feed my creative soul.
As if all this wasn’t enough I try to challenge myself on a regular basis by participating in various online challenges.

I’m based in Luxembourg, the “green heart” of Europe, a good jumping-off place for visiting other parts of Europe as it’s bordered by France, Germany, Belgium and Holland. I also travel widely in Asia when I get the chance.

If anyone would like any information regarding visiting  Luxembourg or anywhere else nearby, please drop me a line and I’ll be happy to help if I can.

  1. What a beautiful set of photos and stories. I have enjoyed this visit very much, congratulations, Fran

  2. This whole blogger is a work of art. It is simply magnificent Carol. I am so proud of you. Bravo!

  3. Thank you Fran and Heather. I am delighted that you have enjoyed your visits and will come back often.

  4. I look forward to coming back often and salivate at the wonderful places you travel, I do miss travelling, at least I can come with you through your work, thanks for that.

  5. Sorry to hear your visit to see the mail art at Le Pas Sage was thwarted. Right away in the photo I noticed the sign for the gallery and how the text was broken up and composed for reading. Clever, that- there is a separtion between the syllables that makes a passage. So the sign looks collaged also.The curious little face wreathed by what looks like grape wreaths must have originally held some symbolism for the builders and for those who first or sometime lived there. Obviously very old buildings in your photos. Makes me wonder if people still live inside them. Curious – in Europe people tend to retro-fit existing structures, while in North America the tendency is to rip out, throw away and replace anew many buildings or parts of them that are showing signs of wear. Not very smart, I fear. Now… I shall check out yourwritings. With pleasure:-)

    Hello Carol I don’t know quite how you seem to have slipped through and out the other side of my blog and I haven’t been a visiting *sorry…. my loss so far .
    Lovely work… here so varied and JUST BRILLIANT !

  23. You’re going to laugh at this, but I am still using my beloved Photoshop Elements 2. I bought the 3 when it came out and didn’t like it, so I simply stayed with 2 all these years.

    • I wouldn’t dream of laughing, I’m still using Photoshop 7 in tandem with PSE. There’s nothing wrong with sticking with something familiar and that works well for you

      • That’s me old Miss Sticky. But honestly Photoshop Elements 2 is so close to Photoshop 7 (the best one ever btw) that you can’t tell a difference unless you are doing some very high-end work.

  24. It’s what I love best about blogging – the amazing talented people, like you, willing not just to share their art but their creative thoughts…
    Beautiful, rich blog
    AnnMarie

  25. Beautiful and inspiring.

  26. The Thoreau quote is one I had written down in January and have been thinking about a lot the past few days, so when I saw the title of your blog, I jumped and immediately looked at your blog.

  27. You have a beautiful blog. Can’t wait to explore more.
