Every picture tells a story and this is ours.
World Photograph Day yesterday saw me trawling through my Travel memories with my award-winning photographer wife.
Sarah Frost as she was when she won two UK Royal Photography Awards.
And still is under her working name, before taking on my mantle.
Now The Scary One, as I affectionately and rather fearfully refer to her, has not been able to attend all my trips around the world.
A deserved reputation
Mostly because of the stipulations but sometimes I imagine because of reputation.
But when she has she has brought a colour to the trips.
In our own garden county of Co. Wicklow, in Dublin, the iconic Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel at a famous Dublin 4 institution, and a haven too in Temple Bar, and in the heart of the Midlands in the border county of Monaghan.
And also at George’s and Amal’s Amsterdam hotel, her photographs have always enhanced the experience.
Though there was a time on board the MSC Preziosa when it was particularly slippy because of the Norwegian rain.
And she looked as if she might fall overboard. I very nearly caught her too!
So opening up the album here are my Frostie’s Favourites and some of her creativity has even rubbed off on me. See if you can spot which are hers and which are mine?
And She was up every morning bright and early to capture Norway’s waterfalls, inlets and try to spot trolls.
There was one still sleeping off the previous night’s wine, in our MSC Preziosa cabin room.
Amsterdam by George
And sometimes we make a rod for our own back because after staying at the Dylan Amsterdam where George and Amal stay then everywhere else is a disappointment.
Heart and Soll
I fell for you Heart and Soll as Cole Porter sang. And while I was falling down the slopes She was getting the ski boots off and capturing the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser.
The power of Powerscourt
And the two things that She loves more than anything in life and neither of them are me are in Wicklow that’s gardening and shopping.
Powerscourt has them both... and don’t my credit cards know it?
And lastly here we are the picture of happiness as taken by our Portuguese guide, photography fan and pal Jose.
