Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral

I can’t wait to properly post about Iceland.  For now here is a taste with this week’s Photo Challenge.  This was taken last week Saturday on a road trip from Reykavik to Vik in the South of Iceland. The weather and the light changed so rapidly.  We were on our way back to Reykavik and…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Night time

I love exploring cities at night.  There is a completely different energy and vibe and depending on the city it may be a necessary relief from hoards of people about in the day. This photo was taken during my first trip to Berlin in 2010.  It was a chilly night, we had been exploring all…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threes

Marrakesh, Morocco. A trip to the Jewish spice market was an explosion of colours and smells.  It also wasn’t an area where many tourists go but it was one of my favourite places in the city.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand

Tributes continue to flood social media and I’ve read some really lovely and beautiful stories about Mandela.  I think it is interesting that this week’s photo challenge word is grand because that word is so fitting for him.

Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways

Southbank 2012: Festival of Neighbourhood These giant toy letters were a feature at the Southbank last year.  Of all the installations I’ve seen placed here over the years I have to say this has been my favorite thus far. They were moved around from time to time over the summer and on this occasion you…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Colour

Life has been so very drab in London for too long and I have been waiting for spring/summer to breathe some colour into the city. This week’s photo challenge has come at the right time.  To celebrate the sun (or lack there of) here is my gallery of yellow.  

Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

Kyoto Japan 2007: After walking through the historic Gion District my friend Shawn and I continued to wonder and stumbled upon Yasaka [a Shinto] Shrine.  Drawn by the light of the lanterns we were pleasantly surprised by our find. Find the original challenge here

Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

This challenge was made for me as green is my favourite colour!  My zodiac element is earth, a possible connection?  I think I love green so much because growing up in Canada and adjusting to actual seasonal changes, green signifies that things have thawed after a long winter and is one of the biggest signs…
