Travel Photo Thursday — 09/18/14 — Night Time Prague

Posted by on Sep 18, 2014 in Czech - Prague, Featured, Travel Photo Thursday | 26 comments

Welcome to week 194! My apologies for this post being late and somewhat brief. My ongoing Internet problems became a huge issue this week. I had to call in the telephone company not once but twice. The first technician put a cable in the wrong outlet, and made things worse. It took a second technician, more than 24 hours later, to fix the problem. Isn’t it amazing how something that sounds so simple, a cable in the wrong outlet, can cause an entire system to go down! I’ve been going through some photo files this week, and have enjoyed perusing a number of night shots of Prague from the banks of the Vitava River. I usually don’t do justice to night shots, but these shots I do like.

Cats, Cats, and more Cats…Love this one, but was located inside the gates of a private clan temple, and I never managed to go by when the gates were open. I could only shoot through the gate rails.

“Trishaw man” is one of the bigger murals (and one of my favs), but believe it or not, unless you’re looking for, it it’s easy to miss. Located on Upper Penang Road, close to the Cititel Hotel.

I do hope you’re enjoying Penang’s street art, because I do have more to share. I’ll try and give you all a break from it, next week :)

Travel Photo Thursday — 09/04/14 — Korea Focus

Posted by on Sep 4, 2014 in Destinations, Korea, Travel Photo Thursday | 25 comments

Welcome to week 192 of Travel Photo Thursday. Classes started this week, on the cusp of a major Korean holiday, Chuseok. Many students won’t come to classes until after the holiday, and others are eager to see the end of today, so they can head home to their families. For me, it means almost a week off, I am not complaining :) Chuseok is Thanksgiving here. The Koreans honor their ancestors and celebrate the harvest. Although, very early this year, the holiday is not that far removed from my own Canadian Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoy some of my favorite photos that I’ve taken here in Korea, over the years.

An amazing Buyeo Sunset…

Day is Done

 

Korean Fan Dancers…(my favorite traditional dance.) Sometimes I think it’s as much as the dance as the beautiful costumes.

 

Passionately Pink for the Cure

 

Fish’n at Daecheon Beach…

 

Sunday Fish'n

 

Spinning Disks…The traditional costumes make these guys ROK!

The lotus blossoms at Bongwonsa Temple in Seoul… (I still remember what a fab afternoon I had with all these beautiful blossoms, and having the place to myself!)

For me, the highlight of a Korean meal, banchan…

Springtime in Korea…

 

Springtime Contemplation in Korea

 

I would say this is my favorite shot. One of the reasons being, that it was picked up by National Geographic’s “Intelligent Traveler”.
Taken at Nun’s Temple, Daejeon.

 

Dragon's Head..........Nun's Temple, Daejeon

And one last shot…just because :). Also taken in Buyeo when I was looking for “Johnny on the Spot”. :)

Wild Flowers

Looking at all these photos has made me realize how beautiful Korea is, and how many more shots I want to take before I leave. Time to become the “weekend wanderer”, again!
