weekly photo challenge: treasure

Image Posted on

The Weekly Photo Challenge asked us what we treasure….

We treasure each other and our families of course. But for this challenge, we are showing another thing we treasure: the world around us.

The one experience that we both hold dear is when we were able see Lonesome George in his last months on earth. Lonesome George was the last of the Pinta Island tortoises and is the Galapagos Island conservation icon.

He represents to us how precious and vulnerable nature is and how much we need to treasure it!

a word a week challenge: pose

Image Posted on Updated on

We have been enjoying participating in the The Daily Post weekly photo challenge. Recently we have started following A Word in Your Ear and she has a similar challenge called: A Word a Week Challenge.

The reason we are immensely enjoying the challenges is that it really is a challenge! We love sorting through our photos and looking at them from a different angle. We need to put our creativity hat on and try to think outside the box to interpret them to suit the chosen “word”!

Luckily for us, our first A Word a Week Challenge is a relatively easy one: POSE – when taking photos, posing is natural! Or is it?

Hope you enjoy our photo selection of poses taken on our travels:

weekly photo challenge: layers

Image Posted on Updated on

We are really enjoying participating in the Weekly Photo Challenge…. 

Our choice of photo this week to represent LAYERS is a photo we took in Mauritius back in 2005. 

This is “Chamarel Seven Coloured Earths”. Bascially it is a geological formation where the seven different coloured sands have settled in different “layers” causing the colouring phenomenon.

weekly photo challenge: habit

Image Posted on

It’s time for the Weekly Photo Challenge. And the theme is HABIT : to capture something that we do habitually… something that we do everyday…..

We’ve chosen this photo! A photo of us having dinner with our extended family. There are a few habits in this photo.

(1) Dinner – a meal we have every day

(2) Family dinners – out of 7 days a week, we eat dinner with our families at least 3-4 times

(3) Using chopsticks to eat everything – but probably appropriate here 🙂
