Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Smiles

“You’re just a smile away, just a smile away
A smile that blows a kiss into my heart” — Danny Jamie

This week’s photo challenge by Cee is about Smiles. Here are my entries – photos of my senior dogs Rex and Pedro whose smiles and gentle eyes never fail to bring a smile to my face whenever I see them.

Hope these pass on smiles to you too!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Walks, Trails, Sidewalks

“These boots are made for walking and that’s just what they’ll do. One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you.” — Nancy Sinatra

I had an instant smile when I saw Cee’s photo challenge this week, with the theme of Walks, Trails, Sidewalks.

You see, restlessness is my weakness, and walking is my remedy for this. I used to be conscious of the number of steps and relied to the dot on stepcounters, but I have since let go and just walked on and on and on.

Walking allows me to bask in the earth’s beauty – feel the sunshine or raindrops on my face; listen to the simple symphony of the waves, wind, birds, or crickets; let my imagination run as I gaze at the clouds, mountains, trees, streams, or stars.

These are some of the recently taken photos that came to mind with this week’s challenge. And I’m humming to some upbeat tunes in my walking playlist as I am writing this blog.

I had fun digging through archives for this Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week. Here are my Pairs:

First and foremost, the iconic Kissing Statue while I was enjoying the sunset view in San Diego.

Popsicles that me and my sister tried out at Beerenberg Farm in South Australia.

And these two feet that bring me wherever, whenever. For this photo, my feet took me around Montreal, Quebec.

Thanks for checking these out!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Candid Shots

I was thrilled to dig into my photo archives when I saw this week’s Cee’s Photography challenge. I just browsed through photos of different trips to Japan, my favorite holiday destination.

To start off, it’s no other than D being pleasantly overwhelmed by the lights and things to see in Dotonbori, Osaka. This was taken during our first ever trip to Japan way back 2010.

This one’s taken at Nara. I love this shot capturing a man appreciating and taking a photo of the flowers of spring.
