weekly travel theme: wild

No need to look that far for a “wild” photo. Here’s a photo of some pink wildflowers growing in my backyard.

travel theme: bridges

My internet connection has been intermittent for the past several days so i haven’t posted in a while and i’m so late with the photo challenges.

Here’s my entry for this week’s travel theme by Ailsa

bridge

This bridge really shakes when you walk over it and my kids are all laughing at me when i try to cross it but it was fun.

sunday post: hope

After the rain, the sun will shine again beaming with new rays of hope.

cee’s fun foto challenge: water

Located at the heart of a mall, this urban oasis which is really called The Oasis offers a breath of fresh air for shopaholics. It is an outdoor cafe and deli shop and a perfect al fresco venue for dining and mini cocktail parties.

The sound of water gently cascading in the pool is very relaxing and for a moment you will be transported to another dimension away from the hustle and bustle and noise inside the mall.

There was a slight drizzle when i visited the oasis but that didn’t stop me from taking a few photos.

I tried to photograph the biggest black koi that i’ve seen but it swam so far and hid itself near the rocks. But, i managed to capture some of its multi-colored pondmates. There are pink ones, white, orange and some a combination of all these colors.

travel theme: new

Posting a photo a day is something NEW to me and a new challenge for 2013.

I need to warn you though that i am not a good photographer but i will try my best to post good if not better photos. Oh dear me, can i really do this on a daily basis? Wish me luck! Thank you Alastair for your motivation 🙂

What a better way to practice taking photos but right in my own backyard.

My PHOTO OF THE DAY: pretty little flowers.

Now thinking of what to post tomorrow..

It’s the third day of the year and i hope everyone is really having a good start.

travel theme: foliage

Leaves form a majestic silhouette across the sky as the sun sets in. I randomly took these photos last week as i was spending my afternoon at the coffee shop. I just thought they are beautiful and relaxing as the leaves gently swayed everytime the wind blows. It was a lovely afternoon and i’m glad i captured the moment.
