DP Photo Journal: Wildlife

When I went to France last October we hit all the tourist destinations in Paris – including the Mont Saint Michel. This “Mount Saint Michael” is quite the tourist hotspot and you may find a plethora of shops and vendors around the premises, as well as historical guides… for a price. Now how does this relate to wildlife? While there, a companion of mine happened upon a ladybug – and *SNAP!* we have the picture below – the French LadyBug of Mont Saint Michel.

DP Photo Journal: Shadows

While in Normandy, France I had the chance to take many pictures of the Mont Saint Michel, many of which are of it’s interiors – long, winding, and shadowy corridors that seem to go on and on forever.

Each post will include a gallery of pictures, descriptions, and more!

To start this off, we’ll take a look at Ireland. While there I explored the Southern half of the country, never entering the territory of Great Britain.

We drove along beautiful green pastures – the deepest and most continuous strain of greens I’ve ever seen. Long green hills, quiet countryside, and the ocean crashing up against the cliffs to the edge of the island – creating a thoroughly tranquil atmosphere. It is only until you get into cities such as Dublin, that this image is disrupted, and you enter the city-side of Ireland.

This time with the famous Arc de Triomphe’s near-twin (and older sibling) – the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel. Built to commemorate the one and only Napoleon Bonaparte.
