I’m going to take the lazy route and be literal about this week’s challenge – ROY G. BI and V make a beautiful rainbow..
This week’s challenge makes me think of “off-season” travels, when the weather isn’t as bad as the travel guide says it will be, but you get to experience special parts of the world without the usual hoardes of tourists at every stop.
London ‘not-in the summertime’ means not having to stand 10 people deep in front of every painting at the National Gallery.
This is Colona, not far from Buenos Aires. It’s so very quaint (and quiet) in the off-season.
The usually inviting Pacific Ocean is looking unseasonably uninviting on its South American shores, in Lima, Peru.
This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is Vivid – which conjures up images of shiny, bright, red things in my mind. These are some examples I’ve encountered on my travels. I was surprised to not find more examples from India, but that may have been because I was too busy stuffing my face with food to pay attention to photography..

This week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post is On the Way. I always find that the most special moments in my travels are usually captured on the road, and this week’s challenge was a chance to revisit some of my favourites from Peru.
For this week’s post, I’m sharing some special examples of Something Broken which I have come across in my travels..
This week’s Daily Post Photography challenge is Enveloped, which evokes the imagery of being wrapped up by wings, or by a pair of arms. It also makes me think of being enveloped inside a big circular building like the Colosseum in Rome.
Here are some forces of nature which I have captured over my travels..
Other than its amazing scenery, what made Patagonia even more special were its rainbows – they were everywhere!
The Perito Moreno Glacier in Argentina was certainly a site to behold.
These bicycles in Amsterdam were definitely afflicted by a force of nature..
Its only when you get up close that its possible to see the blue heart of a glacier. Unfortunately the colour is a result of the melting process.
For this week’s photography challenge – I’m sharing some examples of the small, intricate details which I’ve captured over my travels. These examples are mainly of buildings visited within the Rajasthan region of India, and a couple from Europe.
These intricate screens were used in Moghul palaces to allow the women of the court to observe the world outside whilst being shielded from sight themselves. Similar features were also used in Moorish architecture.

One of the many beautiful examples of the stained glass windows within the Cathedrale Notre Dame, Paris.
A small detail of St Mark’s Basilica, Venice.
The theme for this week’s photography challenge – Motion, has so many possibilities that it’s been difficult to narrow down my favourites. But here goes..
This little horse was having way too much fun to care about the cold.
Water flowing past Neptune’s feet – Fontana del Nettuno, Rome.
I came across this little waterfall at a national park in Rio.
A camel, a horse and a cyclist, on their way to a bar..
This week’s Daily Post photography challenge is Afloat, a word which conjures up images of floating on warm tropical oceans and gazing up at blue skies, whilst sipping cocktails out of coconut shells.. The reality isn’t as glamorous, but a girl can dream!
The organised chaos of the floating markets at Bangkok.
When the sexiness of Rio gets all too much, head to Buzios to recover your senses..
Being the nearest mainland location to Antarctica, the Beagle Channel is no tropical haven – but its beauty is undeniable.
