Spring has Sprung. Happy Vernal Equinox! Spring actually came early to Portland this past week when the crocus blossomed beautifully. Still haven’t figured out how to harvest saffron, though, so we’ll just have to enjoy their incredible beauty! #spring #springflowers…

Bridge of the People A gorgeous Spring-like morning dawns behind Tilikum Crossing, Portland’s 11th and newest bridge over the Willamette River, and the first since 1973. It’s name honors the various tribes of Native Peoples that inhabited the area for milennia. ‘Tilikum’ is the Chinook word for people, and is symbolic for the public transportation that uses the bridge along with pedestrians and bicyclists. No cars or trucks allowed on this crossing! #tilikumcrossing #portland #bridgeofthepeople #oregon #traveloregon #exploregon #willamette #dawn #bridgetown #featcbportland #travel #wanderlust #travelgram #explore #discover #holiday #travels #traveler #traveling #oregon_wandering #traveladdict #exploretocreate #inspiring_shot #passionpassport #goodlife #traveltheworld #kellymcinroyedwards #photography #travelphotography #travelphotographer

Sail Me to Explore. Whatever your preferred method or speed is for traveling to explore our incredible planet, you may find yourself growing in ways you couldn’t possibly imagine. The unique sailing ships of Windstar regularly sail the Mediterranean, including the Greek Isles, but can be found across the world.

Table For Two, Oceanfront View. During the day, the town of Mykonos nearly empties out as tourists flock to the beaches around the island. For those looking for quiet, uncrowded shopping and the best tables for lunch, this is the best time to be in town. Can’t you picture yourself here enjoying the best Greek lunch and drinks on the island?! This table for two has been reserved for you...sit back, relax and enjoy the view. #kellymcinroyedwards #photography #travelphotography #travelphotographer #travel #mykonos #greece #oceanview #tablefortwo #inspiring_shot #adventure #wanderlust #vacation #travelgram #explore #discover #holiday #travels #traveler #traveling #travelingram #travelblog #travelblogger #traveladdict #passionpassport #mytravelgram #instapassport #traveltheworld #goodlife #tourist

For Athena. Exploring Greece is like stepping back in time. So much history surrounds the Acropolis and what remains from the height of its past. The most prominent is a temple to honor the goddess Athena, the Parthenon. At the time it served as the Treasury for city and the Athenian empire, but throughout history it also was a Christian church, a mosque and an ammunition depot, which resulted in its current state when a cannonball ignited the ammunition stored there. The Parthenon is also an impressive and enduring symbol of Ancient Greece, Athenian democracy and Western civilization. A treasure of our past! #kellymcinroyedwards #photography #travelphotography #travelphotographer #travel #parthenon #acropolis #athens #greece #greekempire #ancientgreece #architecture #akropolis #adventure #tourist #wanderlust #vacation #travelgram #explore #explorers #discover #holiday #travels #traveler #traveling #travelingram #travelblog #traveladdict #simplyamazing #traveltheworld

A Little Venice...in Greece. The Greek Isles hold so many little treasures and Mykonos pays homage to Venice Italy with their own ‘Little Venice ‘. Built on top of rock outcropping these 18th century fishing houses with balconies that look out to the sea were built for convenience so sea captains could quickly load and unload goods. Today, it’s full of eateries and bars, and a relaxing place to watch the sunset or people. @harmonyboutiquehotel #kellymcinroyedwards #photography #travelphotography #travelphotographer #travel #mykonos #greece #littlevenice #adventure #wanderlust #inspiring_shot #vacation #travelgram #explore #discover #holiday #travels #traveler #traveling #travelingram #travelblog #travelblogger #traveladdict #exploretocreate #passionpassport #travelfriendly #traveltheworld #tourist #simplyamazing #explorers

Flaming Flamingos. It’s natural to wonder if there is a connection between flamingos (the birds) and flamenco (the dance). Because there is: both are derived from the Latin word for ‘flame’, clearly for their intense red color (at least for the flamingos). Shooting these two in captivity offered the opportunity to leverage shadows in the background to highlight their coloration. These truly are incredible creatures that are another example of nature’s work of art! #kellymcinroyedwards #photography #flamingo #travelphotography #travelphotographer #travel #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #bird #birding #bestbirdshots #birdphotography #birdsofinstagram #feathers #adventure #wanderlust #vacation #travelgram #explore #discover #travels #traveler #traveling #travelingram #travelblog #travelblogger #traveladdict #passionpassport #traveltheworld

Upside Down or Right Side Up? Our planet is an amazing collection of diverse species, each one playing a unique role based on an evolution of their adaptive strengths. The Flamingo is no different. They are more like whales, than their avian counterparts. Their bill is bent and what appears to be the lower part (when upright) is fixed, and only the upper part moves allowing them to bury their bills in water or muddy flats and suck up both mud and water to feed on small organisms—plankton, tiny fish, fly larvae, etc. Like baleen whales, the flamingo's beak has a filterlike structure to remove food from the water before the liquid is expelled. So, when you see their head down as this American Flamingo is showing here, their bill is operating right side up, just like a whale! Fascinating birds! #kellymcinroyedwards #photography #flamingo #travelphotography #travelphotographer #travel #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #bird #birding #bestbirdshots #birdphotography #birdsofinstagram #feathers #adventure #wanderlust #vacation #travelgram #explore #discover #travels #traveler #traveling #travelingram #travelblog #travelblogger #traveladdict #passionpassport #traveltheworld

A Lesser Flamingo, No Less. This species of Flamingo is actually the most prevalent (numerous) in the world - yes, even more than the Greater Flamingo! And yet, it remains a threatened species. Byproducts of human activities are adversely affecting the species. Vibrant, beautiful creatures such as this will be lost if humanity doesn’t realize the fragile balance of our planet we call home. Incredible birds! @animalkingdomlodge @disneysanimalkingdom #kellymcinroyedwards #photography #flamingo #travelphotography #travelphotographer #travel #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #bird #birding #feathers #bestbirdshots #birdphotography #birdsofinstagram #adventure #wanderlust #vacation #travelgram #explore #discover #travels #traveler #traveling #travelingram #travelblog #travelblogger #traveladdict #passionpassport #traveltheworld

Life Imitating Art. While Gaudi dominates the architectural art landscape in Barcelona, he is not the only famous artist. Street statuary performers up and down La Rambla imitate Barcelona’s other notable artist, Salvador Dalí. This performer stood out (being in the sun while everyone else was in the shadows) in her rendition of Dalí’s The Anthropomorphic Cabinet/The Burning Giraffe. You couldn’t miss her! Another reason to experience Barcelona! #kellymcinroyedwards #photography #travelphotography #travelphotographer #travel #barcelona #catalonia #streetperformer #dali #larambla #slowtravel #adventure #wanderlust #vacation #travelgram #explore #discover #holiday #travels #traveler #traveling #travelingram #travelblog #travelblogger #traveladdict #exploretocreate #passionpassport #tourism #traveltheworld #goodlife

Nature Inspired and Man Made. Although Gaudi’s art creations exist across Barcelona, his masterpiece is La Sagrada Familia. While the true spectacle of the massive cathedral outside has yet to be finished, inside is mind blowing. The height to the ceiling is impressive enough, but here we can easily how nature was both an inspiration and guiding reference throughout Gaudi’s life. Are those columns or massive tree trunks stretching several stories high with their branches reaching out? Flower blossoms seem to cast their glow back down to all who gather for service. Light fills the space from high above. It is truly magnificent in every way, and worth spending several hours exploring both inside and outside! @basilicasagradafamilia #kellymcinroyedwards #photography #travelphotography #gaudi #travelphotographer #travel #lasagradafamilia #barcelona #catalonia #art #architecture #adventure #wanderlust #vacation #travelgram #explore #discover #holiday #travels #traveler #traveling #travelingram #travelblog #travelblogger #traveladdict #exploretocreate #passionpassport #slowtravel #traveltheworld #goodlife

Catalonian Casa Creativity. Barcelona easily rivals all other artistic European cities with one artist: Antoni Gaudi. The city is full of his influence and while his greatest masterpiece is yet to be finished, many other examples show his endless creativity with form, light, and color. The facade of Casa Batlló (an apartment building) lights up at night to accentuate the form of each balcony as well as the colorful tiles playing in between to entertain very viewer of this artistic architecture. @casabatllo #kellymcinroyedwards #photography #travel #travelphotography #travelphotographer #gaudi #barcelona #catalonia #art #architecture #casabatllo #adventure #wanderlust #vacation #travelgram #explore #discover #holiday #travels #traveler #traveling #travelingram #travelblog #travelblogger #traveladdict #exploretocreate #passionpassport #traveltheworld #goodlife #slowtravel
