Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Pathways

I just discovered Something To Ponder About‘s page and was immediately thrilled with this Friday’s challenge on the theme of Pathways.

I love looking back at these photos. I can still vividly remember how they were, in real life, a feast to the senses, to my mind and to my heart. If I were to have a holiday right this instant and I am asked to choose where I would go to, I’d say anywhere where there’s a nature trail. When I’m stuck in the city traffic, or walking among crowds of city folk during rush hours on weekdays, I’d imagine I’m walking along these paths and zone out from my busy and noisy surroundings.

Here are my entries for Nancy Merrill Photography‘s challenge theme for this week – On the Horizon.

The first one was taken during my trip to Wilson’s Prom in Victoria, Australia, with my sister and brother-in-law.

The second photo was taken when D and I were en route to Baguio. We stopped along the North expressway for a view of Mt Arayat early morning.

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.

And lastly, this is was taken by D in Tokyo, when he was waiting for me at our meeting place.

Can’t get enough of these fun photo challenges 😄

Here’s my response to Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge on Public transportation (no cars or trucks).

This one’s taken Narita Airport, showing one of the best airlines in my opinion. Transportation

And this one’s taken while I was walking along the Chicago river.
