Scarborough Spa

2

Scarborough Spa, in traditional east coast style, rainy!! :)

Not only is it one of the most prestigious venues for conferences, exhibitions, entertainment and events on the Yorkshire Coast. The Spa Complex is unique among British venues, not only because of its location; right on the sea front in the scenically beautiful South Bay, but also for the variety of facilities housed in what is largely a magnificent Victorian building.
Scarborough spa was almost empty as I pulled up, apart from a few parked cars, but this was probably because of the rain!
Sadly I couldn’t get inside, so I had to resort to taking shots through watermarked stained windows as the rain continued to pour.

The spa is a short driv to the South Bay, or a 10min walk and If I’m honest there isn’t a lot to see or do when the spa is closed but I remember from being a child how busy the spa can get in the height of summer! There is something satisfying about the emptiness of a venue you know has a potential to be extremely hectic. You can imagine the presence of the happy families enjoying the traditional summer coastal atmosphere!

    Vicuna's Travel Stories | Sunrise in the Desert

    Burkina Faso is a country that has three different climatic areas. It's mostly a land of the Sahel, very dry but with some vegetation and a short rainy season. The very south of the country is already in the tropical zone but the north still belongs to the Sahara desert. I had the opportunity to visit this area and witness a magical moment: a sunrise in the desert.

    Vintage Gallery: Marcus Selmer's Costume Portraits

    Marcus Selmer was the first daguerreotype photographer of Bergen, Norway. He was up-to-date with new technologies and even shifted to wet plate collodion process, a more practical alternative to daguerreotypes. In the 1850s, he also made a series of portraits highlighting folk costumes, from floor-grazing bunad dresses to men’s mink coats. The prints were sold to tourists as a remembrance of traditional Norwegian culture.
