The light, shadows, and arches of the buttresses that support the retaining wall on this below ground level walkway caught my eye. I wouldn't have thought that there would be camera-worthy subjects on a walk to a utility room, but art is in the eye of the beholder, even when doing a mundane task.

We let some very good friends use our condo, and Tim painted the scene at the end of the entryway to our condo, with palm trees, the beach and ocean visible. He gave us the painting as a present for letting him stay there, and I have the painting in the library bathroom in our house in Scottsdale. He created a delightful work of art out of an everyday scene.

Tomorrow we will see if there are any artistic or camera-worthy subjects in the underground utility room at the end of this corridor.

This week we are showing a few more photos of Julie's recent trip to Nova Scotia, including a quaint country church and lobsters on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Hiya. I noticed your website title, "Blogger: Tamarindo, Costa Rica Daily Photo" does not really reflect the content of your web
page. When writing your blog title, do you believe it's best to write it for Search engine marketing or for your visitors? This is something I've been battling
with because I want good search rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my site visitors.

Exploring I noticed your blog book-marked as: Blogger: Tamarindo, Costa Rica Daily Photo.

Now i'm assuming you book-marked it yourself and wanted to ask if social bookmarking gets you a bunch of site visitors? I've been contemplating
doing some social bookmarking for a few of my sites but wasn't certain if it would produce any positive results. Many thanks.
