weekly photo challenge: express yourself

Posted on

To show what “express yourself” means to us?

We thought it was almost impossible to find a photo that showed playfulness and young at heart. Then we found this photo we had taken while we were travelling which is also a big part of who we are.

Give you one guess where this photo was taken…

Interestingly, when we look up the symbolic meaning for the panda, the search returns with words such as peaceful, positive outlook on life, gentle strength, caring and compassion. These are values we try to live our lives by.

And we will let you in on a little secret…. one of the nicknames we have for one another is in fact: Panda Boy and Panda Girl 😉

Have a great weekend, everyone!  

Any comments are appreciated!

    Too too cute! I saw pandas in Hong Kong but that was years ago so would love to go and visit some again. They look just like little toddlers playing with their toys 🙂

      They do look like little chubby kids playing. Soooo cute and their expressions are just priceless!

      Maybe a trip to China is on the cards for you too?? 😉

    This picture is so cute! The pandas look like they are having lots of fun! I have yet to see a real panda – I guess I should soon make a trip to the Taipei Zoo or maybe China!

    I am guessing that you took the picture at a zoo, probably in China. Am I right?

      Lynda – you are RIGHT on the money there 🙂 Definitely China and definitely a zoo! Hope you are well.

    This is so cute it made me laugh so hard! Aww how sweet these Pandas are and pretty smart too. They know how to have fun 🙂

      Pandas just look so cuddly, don’t they? They are so cute but apparently can get quite aggressive too…. we find that hard to believe 😉

        They have their sharp animal instincts 🙂

      As one of the other comments… it looks like one is sulking and the other has his arms crossed and frowning.. LOL 😉

    It looks to me like one has its arms crossed in frustration at the other one sulking. Good take on the theme.

      wisemonkeysabroad responded:
      January 25, 2015 at 6:29 pm

      YES!! That is totally what we think too…. they are being quite expressive, or so it seems. 🙂

    Pandas are always a pleasure to see. I have visited them at the zoo a couple of times. The first time I saw them was at the San Diego Zoo in California and I brought home a stuffed panda with me, that still sets on my bookshelf in the computer room. But then, I like all bears!

      Bears are CUTE! One thing we really want to witness is a bear in its natural environment. We would also love to see polar bears as well 🙂

        I iwas fortunate enough to see two cinnamon colored bears playing along the road in the edge of the woods in Colorado. It got me excited!
