I feel like I’ve been out having too much fun to be sitting behind a laptop screen recently. Funnily enough, this weeks wordpress weekly photo challenge theme is actually fun. I mean that quite literally. So I thought, what could be more fun than a funfair? It’s in the name after all.
I actually have a secret (or not so secret, depending on how well you know me) desire to photograph an abandoned theme park/fairground one day. I don’t know why but there’s something about abandoned places that intrigues me alot.
The images above were taken a while ago, me just experimenting with my camera, so I thought they deserved to be shared!
Nowadays we all spend way too much time with our necks bent down staring at our smartphones, rather than appreciating the world around us, and I admit that I am just as guilty of this as everyone else. So inspired by the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge theme of ‘Look Up’, I thought I would share with you one of my favourite photos looking up.
If you read my post 6 super Singapore must-dos then you’ll know how much I loved the Supertree Grove at the Gardens by the Bay. We arrived too late to see the majestic colour changes but we did see the trees all lit up in their electric blue glory like something from the movie Avatar.
The man-made trees are between 25 and 50 metres tall and there are 18 of them in total, 12 of them being in Supertree Grove itself. Each tree is made of concrete and steel with plants growing on them to form a “living skin”. They are also free to go and see.
We were admiring the trees for ages and even lay down beneath them which is when I took this photo. A perfect entry to this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.
I decided to get involved with this week’s photo challenge simply because it gives me the opportunity to show off four photos I have taken, in four different places, representing each of the four seasons.
Clockwise from left: Spring in Japan – cherry blossom season, a celebrated springtime event. Summer in the Maldives – a clear blue sky and turquoise seas always evoke memories of summer. Autumn in Iceland – cloudy skies and a mix of green and brown countryside show autumn is upon us. Winter in England – nothing says winter more than snow!
If you would like to join in the fun, then check out the rest of the submissions on The Daily Post.
According to its official website, Burano is often named among the top 10 most colourful places in the world. Having been there myself, I knew it would be the perfect contribution to this weeks WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge theme – VIBRANT.
Burano is an island that lies in the Venetian Lagoon and is easily visited on a day trip by boat from Venice itself. Often these trips include the islands of Murano and Torcello too, but Burano was my favourite.
The vibrant island of Burano is mostly famous for two things – lacemaking and the coloured houses that line its canals. The coloured houses that inspire many photographers and tourists to get snap happy.
The famous circular doors of Hobbiton, New Zealand
Although I’m not really a big fan of Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit, we visited Hobbiton New Zealand aka The Real Middle Earth aka The Shire during our stay on the North Island as my husband really wanted to go. I enjoyed my visit (I thought it was pretty cute!) and all those little Hobbit houses have made for my perfect first Weekly photo challenge submission of 2016: Circle.
