Travel Theme: Winter

It is an unseasonable 72°F in Virginia as I search to find “winter” photos for Ailsa’s weekly travel theme at Where’s my backpack? The warm temperatures remind me that some of my favorite aspects of the season have nothing to do with cold and snow.

However, on a normal December day, it is cold here. I hate being cold. Winter gives me an excuse to find all sorts of warm woolly socks.

In almost all the places I’ve ever lived, winter brings snow, and snow brings me all kinds of joy.

That sinking feeling

100_0520Inherited nearsightedness from myopic parents. Sun’s blinding dazzle on the bay. Too many sloops moored in the basin. As $13.5 million sank beneath his feet, Tony was only surprised disaster hadn’t struck sooner.

_____________________________________________

Thirty of my own words, added to the three provided by Trifextra this weekend: basin, dazzle, myopic, for a total of thirty-three.

Travel Theme: Fragant

Many would argue that a familiar smell can stir up more memories than the most vivid photograph. But since it is exceptionally difficult to collect fragrances as mementos of one’s travels, taking a photo whose subject captures the source of the scent can be the next best thing.

Ailsa at Where’s my backpack? thinks so, too, and invited her followers to participate in her weekly photo challenge, Travel Theme: Fragrant.

Free day for NaBloPoMo, so I’m choosing to participate in Ailsa’s weekly photo challenge over at Where’s My Backpack? The theme for this week is “connections,” to be interpreted however we choose. You can see Ailsa’s own amazing photos here.

Travel theme: Brown

Trolled the archives to play along with Ailsa’s weekly photo challenge at Where’s my backpack? Sure wish I had my box of Crayola crayons to correctly name all the shades!

Weekly photo challenge: Infinite

102_1653

This bronze statue of a war-weary soldier was positioned in front of a mural of a World War I battlefield cemetery at the In Flanders Fields Museum in Ypres, Belgium. To me, it spoke of the infinite toll war takes on all involved.
