Dont bypass Athens, stop and spend some time.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Room

“From the four walls that currently surround you to the infinite potential of space, this week we’d like you to show us your take on room, rooms, or a room.” Not one for being obvious, I didn’t want to fill this challenge with lots of photos of great hotel rooms. Instead I chose a few of […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

Put letters together to make words. Put words together to form sentences. Put sentences together to produce chapters. Put chapters together to tell stories. There is an order to letters and to keep the letters in order there is the alphabet. To bring each letter to life is a picture that represents that letter, either […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top

I love getting high! Never one to suffer from vertigo, I love being high….whether it be on top of a mountain after trekking for a few days, or from the Observation Deck of a skyscraper where the effort was no more strenuous than pushing the elevator button. I have always enjoyed sweeping views, particularly vistas […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life

Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life Many societies live their life on the streets, they eat on the streets, they conduct business on the streets, they socialise on the streets, they educate and raise their children on the streets. They embrace street life. If you click on the photos you will see a short explanation of each […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

Running a bit late for this week’s photo challenge that I nearly abandoned it! I have seen a few abandoned things and places in my travels. Angkor Wat is probably the most famous of all the abandoned temples in Cambodia. Machu Picchu was abandoned by the Incas until it was “rediscovered” again in 1911 Jiaohe […]

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: SELFIE

The word Selfie finally makes into the Oxford Dictionary in 2013 – 21 years after I invented it! In 1992 I embarked on my first ever solo travel adventure. While friends were starting to settle down, I was shaking it up. While friends were buying bricks and mortar, I was buying trips and memories. While […]

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: JUXTAPOSITION

The first challenge was understanding the actual meaning of juxtaposition. “To place close together or side by side, especially for comparison or contrast” That seems simple enough, but surprisingly found it difficult to make sure the images fit the challenge. Some may be borderline, but maybe the explanation will get them over the line?   […]

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: WINDOW

WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY The eyes are said to be the window to the soul, but as it turns out my eyes have been looking through a camera lens looking through windows! Luckily, not the creepy, peeping Tom kind. You can look in windows, and you can look out of windows, and when going through my […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

I hate nigthtime photography. Nighttime photography gnerally consists of blurry selfie photos in bars. Actually that’s not true (not the bit about drunken selfies) but I really do like nigthtime photography, but the truth I’ve never felt I’ve been very good at it. My camera takes great day time photos but as soon as the sun sets […]
