I've never seen a view like this of Istanbul, a city that is high on my list of dream destinations. The view, the treatment in this photo make it even dreamier. Love this.

I recently joined Pinterest and am finding the experience addictive. Have you tried it? It's so fun, and useful. And in an effort to streamline my life online, I'm going to experiment with posting pics for Vivaca via my pins. If it works well, I'll be happy and will have a better shot of keeping the content here on Vivaca fresh with greater frequency. Let me know how you do like or don't like it.
I'm also going to make this more of a photo-a-day blog and likely drop invitations to photogs to comment, as so few take advantage of the request. Less work for me, and you're still able to enjoy great images from around the world and leave your own comments or connect with the photographer directly via links to their work on Flickr.

Café life is one of Paris' many pleasures, and when set in the lovely Place des Vosges - one of my favorite spots in the City of Light - a real sense of unbridled joy can be achieved. Don't you find?
I love this still life taken at Café Nectarine (never been, myself) on the Place des Vosges. Just lovely. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy and nostalgic, like it was me right sitting there, enjoying the scene.
Your comments on this image are welcome, and encouraged! And a question for the photographer - Emily Reiter - if s/he is so inclined: Is there anything special about this moment, day, trip, or place beyond what you've shared on Flickr that you'd like to add or comment on here? Along with other vivaca visitors, I would love to know more!

First off, congratulations to the happy couple! You look beautiful, as does the weather and Highclere Castle!
As one of many Americans currently swept up in the current Downton Abbey craze, it's lovely to see the castle in everyday use when it's not being used to film the popular show. Looks like a truly amazing place. Hope to see it one day, in person!
