Ancient Spanish Monastery - Hollywood, FL

Entrance to the monastery.


Hallowed halls.




Such beautiful architecture; I was in awe.





Altar.






The entire monastery reminded me very much of the Cloisters in Bronx, NY



Can you see the glass ornaments dangling from the trees.




Doorway.




Winter at Five Rivers





I went walking through the woods on Sunday morning. It was so quiet; I didn't even see any deer which is unusual.  It was also bitter cold.

Such a cute couple.

Today we celebrated my daughter in law Katie's birthday. Her dad made a very nice dinner and we had cupcakes and gelato for dessert.

La Salette Shrine - Altamont, NY





This is one of my favorite places to take photographs.  Such a lovely shrine and the statues are amazing.  Always quiet, very peaceful.





The water pictures were taken by the Normanskill just outside of Altamont.  I got some great panoramic shots as well.

Albany, NY just after sunrise


I made this picture from my boss' window at the office, across from Academy Park. Not bad considering it's a phone with only a 2MP camera.
