Decaying Beauty (WPC – Weathered)

This very weathered wall in Tallinn, Estonia intrigued me immensely with its varying degrees of texture. At first glance this wall highlights years of neglect – yet at the same time it highlights what was once years of care.

Weathered is this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge from The Daily Post.

 

 

 

 

 

Within the Mountains (WPC – Scale)

Even now, this image of abstract artwork on one of our visits to Seyðisfjörður, East Iceland still intrigues me. It’s almost as if one piece of this iron is keeping the mountain at bay whilst another piece is stretching to protect the church from it.

This small township was an hour’s drive from our home in Reyðarfjörður. It was one of those drives that always felt as if it was taking longer then it was due to the fact you had to drive down the steepest, twisty road into it.

This image felt ideal for the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week of… Scale.  Like everything in life, it’s where you stand that creates “your” perspective of what’s around you.

Columbian Carriage Ride (Tourist Time)

When in Cartagena, Columbia we treated ourselves to a guided horse and carriage ride around the old city. The sound of the horse hooves on the stones whilst viewing the history from another era was so wonderful. If only it hadn’t been so darn hot!

Over this summer vacation I’ve been taking trips of another kind every Thursday, traveling down memory lane reminiscing about all the traveling we’ve done to various parts of the world as a family.

Thank you for your kindness and patience over the past two months
– regular programming will resume next week!😃
