Category Wordpress Photo Challenges
Vivid is the theme for this week’s challenge and I’ve procrastinated all week wondering which photo to post. I haven’t had the time to shoot something new so have been through my extensive archives countless times looking for something to fit the theme, that I haven’t already posted. My apartment faces west so I get to […]
On the Way to the train in Hong Kong I walked through this subway. I was so taken by the vibrant colours and the artists’ quotes that I took a few shots. This one is my favourite.
For this week’s theme of Broken I’ve decided to feature a photo I took in Hong Kong of some workmen on a roof. For me, men in hard hats, whether they’re on a building site or the street, seem to be fixing something (even though they’re often constructing something new). In this case it isn’t clear what […]
Since returning from my recent visit to Shanghai I’ve been asked many times about the smog. How bad was it? Was the sky ever blue? Did it affect me or my plans in any way? Yes, most days were smoggy, some worse than others. But the smog certainly didn’t impinge on my plans or my […]
The theme for this week’s photo challenge is Forces of Nature and we’ve been asked to share something from our own corner of the world. For the past week I’ve been looking after a friend’s bed and breakfast and gallery in the Yarra Valley. For those of you not familiar with this part of the world, it is […]
I normally only post one photo for the weekly photo challenge but couldn’t resist a second one this week. There is nothing more Intricate than a spider web and this one was right outside my door this morning.
During my recent visit to Macau I stumbled across Lou Kau Mansion, an old Chinese house which was open to the public. The mansion was built around 1889 and belonged to a wealthy merchant. These beautiful Intricate tiles were on the floor and looked like they’d been there since the house was constructed. Old floor tiles always […]
I’ve just returned from a week in Shanghai, a city that is in constant Motion, even in places where you’d least expect to see much happening. From early in the morning until late into the night the beautiful parks fill with people looking for an escape from the traffic and noise of the city. They chat […]
I’m pleased that Early Bird is the theme for this week’s photo challenge as it gives me an opportunity to post a shot that I took for The Changing Seasons February series. I excluded the photo at the time as it was too dark but have since had a go at editing it with Lightroom and although […]
When I saw Afloat was the theme for this week’s photo challenge I immediately thought of a shot I’d taken earlier this week. My back door faces east and early each morning I open the door to check out the new day. Often I’m greeted by a beautiful sunrise but on this particular day there were […]
