"Simes Still Life"

Another photo group with whom I have spent considerable time is the Plymouth Meet-up. Although not an actual camera club, they do provide photo opportunities and interesting guest speakers.

The Simes House has had quite the run since it was built in 1863. Beginning as a home, it transformed into an inn, a girls' summer camp and back into its original purpose, a home. In 2017, it will make one more major change as it becomes the area's community meeting space, retail office, and affordable housing.

The day before it started this major renovation a handful of photographers were allowed access to the multi-level domicile. With trusty tripod in tow, I spent almost two hours on all three floors. This set-up in the living room kept asking to be shot - so I did!

Where in the World?

Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting? 

the westernmost capital of the European mainland

the Monsanto Forest Park occupying 10 km is located in the city. The park is one of the biggest there is in Europe.

this vibrant city has a very temperate Mediterranean climate, one of the nicest climates on the European continent with a lot of sunshine.

the months of May to September are the best for many tourists because the skies are generally clear and blue with little to no rain.

some of the popular museums being the National Museum of Ancient Art and the National Museum of Costume and Fashion.

want a taste of the modern life, the Bairro Alto is the heart of the city’s nightlife.
