About Me

My photo
Welcome to the online blog for traveler/writer/photographer Steven Barber. Come in. Relax. Take off your shoes and socks -- or any other article of clothing, this is the internet. Have a look around. I hope to intrigue, amuse, entertain, and maybe provoke you just a little. I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

VENICE, ITALY - DUSK IN PIAZZA SAN MARCO



Just before dusk in the Piazza San Marco, Venice. It's a gigantic architectural spectacle which will overwhelm the casual eye. Where to look? What to see? Should I stop and stare or move on?

Your choice.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM - THE STEPS OF ST. PAUL'S



Many readers may have seen the Walt Disney movie Mary Poppins, which takes place in a  romanticized and fictionalized London. One of the most striking scenes in this memorable musical is the haunting and beautiful Feed The Birds

In the song an elderly woman gently begs for money to feed the dozens of pigeons which gather around the square in front of London's majestic St. Paul's Cathedral.

It's a memorable moment.

If you find yourself on the steps of St. Paul's and are familiar with the song it's not hard to hear its soft tune in your head as you sit quietly, watching the world go by.

POIPU BEACH, KAUI, HAWAII - FISHERMAN ON THE SHORE



Any time you fins a large enough body of water it's likely you will also find someone fishing there.

Off the southeastern coast of the Hawaiian Island of Kauai, stands a lone fisherman with a pair of rods.

Not sure what he was planning to catch, but here's hoping it was good eats.
