YADA YADA FISHPASTE has a new name and a new look!

A new name, a new look AND A NEW ADDRESS!

Hey there everyone!

I have been giving my Yada Yada blog some thought and I've decided it is time for a change. Not only am I trying out a few new ideas but I also feel - well, almost feel - as if I've finally decided what I want this blog to be about. 

I want it to be about my photographs and my stories of the places that I've been, the things that I've experienced, the lessons that I've learned and the things that I've realized on the journey. And no, it is not insignificant - yada yada fishpaste - it is travelling the journey with me: seeing what I see and reading my stories. 

I'm inviting you to join me on my travels - in the world and in my life - and to enjoy the beautiful pictures with me, but instead of finding me on the old address (www.yadayadafishpaste.blogspot.com), it is now www.postcardsandpictures.blogspot.com, so please save the new address to your favorites ;) 

The name and the look might be different but it is still the same old "Yada". If you've enjoyed my blog before, I hope that you will continue to do so with me through Postcards and Pictures. And please feel free to let me know your thoughts on the new name, layout, color scheme, etc. I would love to hear your input. After all, the idea is to keep you coming back ;)

(14) PA - Full circle (NYC)

Today our tour of the Big Apple comes full circle as we find our way back to Time Square. There are some interesting little things along the way that you don't usually see in tourism brochures or websites. I think they are the kind of things that I often wonder about when I see footage, photographs or websites of some places around the world. Most of the time you only get to experience those bits when you go there yourself, but sometimes that is not possible, so maybe - if you're anything like me - you get to see some things through my eyes today. Join me, why don't you :)

Trapeze School of New York. Hmm... I wonder what you learn there? ;) I took a few shots of this as we were driving by and was very happy to have this one of them in action. It doesn't look half as interesting when they're standing off to the side. That's not what trapeze artists do, is it? People pay to see them swing and tumble. She's swinging, alright. For all the aspiring trapeze artists out there, now you know where to go.

(13) PA: Two love birds, Wall Street and The World Trade Center

We are slowly nearing the end of one absolutely A.MAZING day in New York City. Today we are heading to Wall Street and the World Trade Center Memorial Site. Enjoy site seeing with me and feel free to share any thoughts or interesting tidbits if you have any to add. It's always fun to hear from you. Here we go!

This is looking down Wall street from the Hudson River. That building "next" to the lamppost is the Trinity Church steeple from a distance.

(12) PA - Introducing Lady Liberty

Time has simply run away from me since my last post. Finally today, after a trip down the Hudson River, you get to meet Lady Liberty.

Even though I've visited New York City in the latter part of August it still stirs my heart with fond memories of an awesome visit to New York City. If this is the first time you join me on the journey, welcome! If you've been chewing your finger nails in anticipation of the next leg of the journey, then I hope that you are not disappointed.

I invite you to share your thoughts. I always enjoy hearing from you :)

A glimpse on the inside of the Zephyr. Everywhere I looked there were men with yellow t-shirts.  What the?... And not just yellow, but a real 'in your face' sunflower yellow. I simply couldn't rest till I knew what it was about, and just as I was about to ask outright, I caught sight of the embroidery on the shoulder: It turns out it was a choir.
