weekly photo challenge: early bird

Posted on

We’ve been a little quiet on the blog the past fortnight as we have been on a family road trip to Victoria (and back), internet was not very stable at some stops.

But we are back and luckily, we were able to catch an “early bird” moment to share. For the first time ever, we witnessed a beach sunrise.


This was taken at Pambula Beach, down the South Coast of NSW, Australia.

Are you more of a sunrise or sunset person?

Share your thoughts with us.


weekly photo challenge: blur

Posted on

Most of our photos that are blurry, we delete straight away. So this challenge was hard for us but we managed to find one of the Xi’an wall.


Do you keep photos that are blurred?

Have a great weekend!

Feel free to drop us a line here.

weekly photo challenge: wall

Posted on

We’ve chosen to share “The Wall of Tears” found on Isabela Island of the Galapagos Islands. It is about 25 metres tall and its construction is said to have been the cause of many deaths.

It was built in the late 1940s through to 1950s by prisoners on the island.

This wall was the result of many tears as well as locals saying that cries can be heard coming from it sometimes.


To check out other photos of walls in the Weekly Photo Challenge, see here.

Have a fabulous weekend! 

We welcome your comments.


#exploretheelements – travel photoblogging challenge

Posted on Updated on

We’ve just received a nomination for a rather fun challenge/competition (#ExploretheElements) from MiaMusings – so thank you for tagging us.

The idea is to publish 4 photos that represent each of the elements: earth, water, fire and air. Here are our interpretations 🙂

1/ Earth – represents the hard, solid objects of the earth. Associated with stubbornness, collectiveness, physicality and gravity.


2/ Water – represents the fluid, flowing, formless things in the world. Associated with emotion, defensiveness, adaptability, flexibility, suppleness and magnetism.


3/ Fire – represents the energetic, forceful, moving things in the world. Associated with security, motivation, desire, intention and an outgoing spirit.


4/ Air – represents things that grow, expand and enjoy freedom of movement. Associated with will, elusiveness, evasiveness, benevolence, compassion and wisdom.


And before we sign off, we need to nominate some people to get involved. Here are 5 blogger pals whose work we thoroughly enjoy (apologies if you have already been nominated or are not interested in participating).
