Camino de Santiago Photo of the Week – February 10, 2013

I came across this delightful photograph on the Camino blog of Michelle Lara. Michelle’s photos and charming personal account give a wonderful feel for the walk and the people you meet. There’s a turkey you won’t want to meet, an opinionated man from Portugal, a chicken crossing the road, a newborn calf, some foot pain, […]

Cool Stuff Friends Have Found on the Web #1

Berlin artist EVOL has created a series of miniature buildings from random street utility units, parking ballads, and locked electrical meter boxes. Beautifully rendered, but  Soviet in inspiration, it’s hard to tell you’re not looking at a real building. Find more pictures here. Hat tip: Charrisse M.

Camino de Santiago Photo of the Week – January 20, 2013

These candies were left for pilgrims in a picnic area in France just outside of Moissac. Camino-(in)spirations, a site that recounts an Australian woman’s 2008 80 day Camino has a collection of great photos and reflections on her experience. Seeing them brought a smile to my face. “It was a simple life in which I noticed […]

Camino de Santiago Photo of the Week – January 6, 2013

Something a little different this week. My daughter, Alannah, 10, was nominated the guest photo editor for the Camino de Santiago Photo of the Week. She spent several hours surfing the web and finally found this spectacular shot. The image was taken by  Mark Teiwes, an editorial photographer living in Santiago, Chile. His website here […]

This is only funny if you don’t have to carry it. A very full pack from onestepfurtherfm.wordpress.com, a pack that also happens to looks a heck of a lot like my own pre-Camino pack. Read this pilgrim’s full pack list here. Note the “Tea Tree Oil (a must), Vegan Carb gels X6, evening primrose capsules, […]

Camino de Santiago Photo of the Week – December 23, 2012

The photo above is from the blog of a self-described “corporate American runaway.” Sherry Otts writes of this rainy day on the Camino: I am so happy to not be walking today. This body has made it 90 miles in 6 days through rain, wind, mud, hail, and heat – I deserve a break. My […]

Post Hindenberg, Pre Led Zeppelin

From the site retronaut.com whose logo is “The past is a foreign country. This is your passport.” This image was taken of the ‘USS Macon (ZRS-5), an airship built and operated by the United States Navy for scouting. She served as a ”flying aircraft carrier”, launching Curtiss F9C Sparrowhawk biplane fighters. In service for less […]

Camino de Santiago Photo of the Week – December 16, 2012

There are a lot of people with Camino tattoos of scallop shells and road markers and the cruz espada, but Moritz Platt took a photo of a pilgrim’s arm that deserves special attention. When I walked the Camino I tore out the pages of my guidebook every day as I moved along on the journey […]

Camino de Santiago Photo of the Week – December 9, 2012

This is a picture of the book that started it all. One of the manuscripts above – perhaps the big red one – has been bringing visitors to Santiago de Compostela for a millennium. One of the most important cultural treasures in the last thousand years, this document has brought millions of people – and dollars […]

This site’s collection of photography is first rate. I loved the one above of a Russian War memorial, but check out the photograph of the ice in “We Get Inspired” and “We Are Confused.” The site is as exciting for its daily photographs as it is for the eye of its curator. Well worth a […]
