Hello, English learners around the world!
Here are some photo galleries for you to bookmark.
Before I mention them to you, remember a great place for history in pictures: the BBC News World’s Day in Pictures, which you could top up with readings of various post you find interesting on The Editors’ blog – a site where the editors from across BBC News share their dilemmas and issues.
First on today’s list are the photo galleries featuring the major events of 2010 organised by or with the support of the American Consulate in Krakow throughout Poland, which will appear on the Consulate website in December. You can look for them in the multimedia section under photo galleries. These visual memories of the past year include both sad and happy occurrences: the state funeral of President Lech Kaczynski and First Lady Maria Kaczynska, the 65th Anniversary of Auschwitz-Birkenau Camp Liberation, the Feininger Photo Exhibit, the visits of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and American astronauts as well as many others. Enjoy!
Second, check out my Facebook album, India 7×7, which contains a personal selection of photos taken by others and myself during my 7 weeks in India. They are organised according to conceptual criteria that I invite you to discover. No worries, I added captions that will (hopefully be enough to) cue you in. 😀 I’ll be back with more updates, hopefully by the end of this year! 🙂
The third set of (less) pictures within (more) patches of text that I recommend to you come from Natalie John’s blog. Natalie John is one of the finest young talents to emerge in recent years in the highly competitive and world class New York Jazz scene. A native of Marin County, California, Natalie was classically trained at a very young age. She was soon drawn towards Jazz and joined the music program at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. She currently teaches vocal classes at SAM, the Swarnabhoomi Academy of Music in India. If you asked me how she spends the rest of her time in India I would say that after classes she enjoys discovering India, hanging out with the rest of the SAM faculty, including me, wonders at the beauty of the sky and likes to hum while making coffee. 😀
Here they all are, her posts from India, so far, chronologically ordered below:
Enjoy the photos in these galeries and add your own favourites to your personal lists, as I’m sure you’ve already done or are about to do.
Warm greetings from India!!!
