Thankful is this week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post. This young girl was trying to sell us some souvenirs while temple-hopping in Cambodia this summer. She was quite a sales woman, and of course, those eyes also helped her seal the deal with us. I just remember the situation so well, as we only bought a few things from her and paid 1 or 2 USD – but she expressed so much gratitude and thankfulness for this that I will always remember her.
Here are some of my previous contributions:
The Daily Post today announced a Special Photo Challenge: Inspiration. So, what inspires me? I guess I am a focused, hard-working person. One of the reasons why, is my daily moments where I drift away dreaming of the next time I get to jump off the dive boat to start exploring a new dive site. These moments really inspires me.
The travel theme at the Where’s My Backpack blog this week is Mystical. This to me is pretty mystical; get’s you wondering what is around the next corner.
This weeks photo challenge is GREEN. I took this photo in the Swiss Alps (the Braunwald Area), maybe the most relaxing and greenest place I have seen.
This weeks photo challenge is Renewal. We saw this hawk/falcon (?) with it’s prey an afternoon back in Hong Kong. It sat there for a few hours, just staring out in to the air and guarding the smaller bird. Hopefully the little prey was brought back to a nest to feed some younger ones and secure a new generation of this beautiful predator.
We walked the Cinque Terre at the Italian Riviera a few years ago. A stunning place. This sun flower is from one of the villages, cannot remember which one now. But it seems like a good match for this weeks travel theme: Bright
This weeks photo challenge is Geometry. My photo is from MACBA (Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art). It has been a while since I went, and what I remember clearly, except for all the skateboarders outside, is the actual architecture of the building, which carries a lot of geometry. Beautiful place.
