Foto Finish: Travel (Optional Theme)



We're back!  Foto Finish is back after a month-long absence.  I'm missing your weekly photos.  Did you miss me?

No matter, we're back to stay for a long time.

Today's optional theme is "Travel" and here's my entry:


I bet you thought I was going to show you something from Ireland, didn't you?  Actually, this image is from Rome, Italy.  It's the floor of one of the beautiful cathedrals we visited while there.  I wasn't a quilter when this image was taken, but clearly I enjoyed the quilt-inspiring floor.  I thought you would too.

So have you been thinking about what you would post on this first day back?  Of course, Foto Finish themes are completely optional, and you can interpret the themes however you like.  There are other ways to "travel" besides actually traveling.  For instance, maybe you have some traveling in your free motion quilting work.  In any case, I'm excited to see what you've come up with while I've been gone.

First, I'll tell you that next week's theme is going to be "Summer's Here".  (And, living in Oregon, all I can say is, summer had better be here by the time this theme hits my blog or something bad might happen.)

Now I'm ready to see your "Travel" images.  Here's Mr. Linky:

Very happy to have Foto Finish back. Cathedrals are a favorite photo subject in our house too. They are so beautiful with their tile floors and stained glass.

Yes, we missed Foto Finish. Just loved reading your posts on Ireland, made me homesick.

How fun! I'm glad I came over and looked at the theme before deciding on my blog post for the day!! Have a happy Saturday! (And yes, you *were* missed!) :)

So fun to be able to morning-surf my blogroll again. :) I've really missed following my regulars. I actually had a photo handy to share with this one - it's from our last mini-vacation, which was at St. Augustine. It's looking down at my daughter inside the lighthouse.

You were obviously subconsciously a quilter when you took that photo, you just hadn't realised it yet!

This is my first Foto finish! I can definitely see a quilt in that floor.

Floors are amazing. Glad you are back.

Yep, the beginnings of quilter's eye alright! Great floor (even if it wasn't in Ireland)!
