Monochrome Madnesses

I’m a bit late again but here is my offering (Da Vinci) to Leanne Coles wonderful gallery of images – and some monochrome travel images.

Travelling leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller!  I. Battuta

Ibn Battuta was a medieval traveler of Berber descent. He intended to go on a Haj to Mecca and ended up travelling for 29 years.

Fun in Paris and London with my daughter

and great castles of Ireland
