I’ve always been taken by this quote from Sir Francis Chichester , the first person to sail single-handedly around the world via the clipper route in 1967
“To a man with imagination, a map is a window to adventure.”
To me, a map is a window to distant horizons.
I love horizons.
- They beckon from across landscapes that rise and fall across the world.
I love landscape.
- Hewn by climate over eons of time, this global environmental sculpture appears from afar like a crazy patchwork of regional textures and tones sewn together by waterways and dry creek beds; yet close up, the transgression from one locale to another feels more seamless as the vegetation transpires from lush verdant greens to dry spiky ochres.
I love maps ~
- Which via lines and symbols snapshot entire 3D landscapes succinctly onto a single 2D sheet.
There’s nothing more enticing than unfolding a map of a previously visited area and being taken back to places and times past.
Most people think of maps as being solely navigational, but for me:
maps evoke nostalgia for the past…
and flaunt far away places that taunt for the future.
This blog reflects my loves ~
- heading over horizons on holiday,
- observing vignettes of landscape adorned with flora and camouflaged fauna and…
- maps for highlighting your holiday adventures ~
