    117 photos in 2 sub-albums

    These are some of Helen's pictures from our trip to Paris to join a Principia Lifelong Learning trip that included a 7- river cruise on the Rhône & Saône rivers from and to Lyon. From Lyon, we flew with half the group to Barcelona for 3 days. Here are 90 of Helen's favorites--and her favorite 24 of the pictures that David took, too (One triptych where he tried to revisit a classic from 20 years earlier plus a couple of other photos from that 2001 trip bring the number her to 27).

    122 photos

    We started in Tallinn, Estonia, went on to St. Petersburg, Russia. Then Helsinki, Finland (visiting Temppeliaukio Rock Church and to Hvitträsk, the home of architect Eliel Saarinen in nearby Kirkkonummi); Riga, Latvia; Klaipeda, Lithuania (with a visit to nearby Palanga); Gdansk, Poland; and Rostock, Germany (where we visited the botanical garden of the University of Rostock). A few of these images (those starting with “339d”) are from David Stafford, but the bulk is from one of the cameras of Helen Eddy. As a photographer, she loves to portray the beauty she sees. As as artist, she loves to experiment with the digital effects available to her as she sorts through her work. A couple of the notable effects you’ll find in fourteen of these images are "kaleidoscope" and a warping tool called “tiny planet” (you’ll see why it is called that). Enjoy!
