Today’s WordPress Photo Challenge topic is foreign so I thought I’d share a photo in which I was the one who was “foreign”. I had just climbed up to the top of the Great Wall of China through a relatively unknown back route and as soon as I stepped upon this mighty feat of engineering, I was swarmed by some native Chinese women who wanted to take their picture with me, their friendly blonde-haired, blue-eyed foreign friend. I say, “Why […]
Photo taken in Vanoise National Park, France. To view more photos on my six-day trek there, click here. The Weekly Photo Challenge this week is to take a chance on a picture that is overexposed and illustrates a free spirit. When I happen to be in a place that’s beauty captivates me, I shoot away taking as many pictures as possible regardless of the light. I couldn’t think of a photo out of my collection that represented free spirit and […]

Photo taken at Times Square in New York City, August 2012. For someone who loves cities, there is no place on earth like New York. I was there for a short three day blogging conference back in early August and could hardly stand its aura that was calling me to sneak out of the sessions early and go do what any true blogger would do: Explore. I wandered through Midtown, making a special trip up to “The Top of the […]

This week’s WordPress photo challenge is movement. Trying to capture any sort of movement on film has always proved difficult for me. Usually the photos I attempt to take during movement end up so bad that I delete them. However, these three photos during my recent trip to China captured the true essence of movement in the amazingly overpopulated city of Beijing. The first is taken inside a moving taxi cab as we entered “ghost street” and the second two […]

This week’s photo challenge is easy as the subject is today. The only requirement is that the photo was taken today. It just so happened that I had already taken my first picture of the day early this morning. It was a beautiful sunny morning so we decided to walk my son to school. On our way down 49th street, we passed a lovely set of purple Morning Glories beaming towards the sun. I have admired these flowers daily ever […]

This week’s official Photo Challenge is a fitting topic: Summer. Here in the US, Memorial Day Weekend is the official kick-off to summer and we are already on a great summer streak with flowers in full bloom and hot, summery days making us forget that it is still only May. I selected one photo for the challenge that to me represents one of my most favorite things about summer: Late night sunsets. Photo taken last summer around nine o’clock at […]
