"What a Wonderful World" is a song written by Bob Thiele and George David Weiss. It was first recorded by Louis Armstrong and released in 1967 as a single. Armstrong's recording was eventually inducted to the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999.
While Armstrong's version of "What a Wonderful World" is a masterpiece, my personal favorite is the version performed by the Washington D.C. based singer Eva Cassidy. Eva Cassidy passed away from cancer in November of 1996 at the age of 33. "What a Wonderful World" was the last song she performed in public, just days before her death.
Looking back over the past couple of difficult years, I realize that we were fortunate to be able to travel, and to appreciate just how much beauty, natural and man-made, the world has to offer. So, in this series, I bring together a set of snaps taken on travels between 2019 and 2022 that say to me---"what a wonderful world this is."
