Travel Challenge – Day 8

I was nominated by our fellow blogger Derrick Knight to post one favourite travel picture a day for ten days without explanation, then to nominate someone else to participate. That’s 10 days, 10 travel pictures and 10 nominations. Instead of nominating one person I would like to invite everyone of you to participate.

Be kind and post at least one of your favourite travel photo. Please link to me so I know you have participated. If you are not interested, no problem.

Nowhere in the rules does it say you can’t guess where the photo was taken.

Stay safe, stay healthy and be kind.

The best way to get to know the place you are traveling in is to walk around… and the best way to walk around is with comfortable shoes! Grab your travel buddy and your running shoes and go explore ~ Laura Marano

I love walking because it clears your mind, enriches the soul, takes away stress, and opens up your eyes to a whole new world ~ Claudette Dudley

Every path, every street in the world is your walking meditation path ~Thích Nhat Hanh

APPLY WITHIN

You once told me
You wanted to find
Yourself in the world –
And I told you to
First apply within,
To discover the world
within you.

You once told me
You wanted to save
The world from all its wars –
And I told you to
First save yourself
From the world,
And all the wars
You put yourself
Through.

-Suzy Kassem

Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence ~ Henry David Thoreau

Negative space

Negative space is the area surrounding the main subject in a photograph which is left unoccupied. Put simply, it is the space around the object itself that helps define the positive space (or main focus).

The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words.~ Elliott Erwitt

An evening in Stockholm

It is always the same. Whether you are walking or going by train, the way always seems shorter the second time than the first. (And that is true of distances that are not to be measured in miles and yards.) ~ Erich Kästner

We’re constantly changing facts, rewriting history to make things easier, to make them fit in with our preferred version of events. We do it automatically. We invent memories. Without thinking. If we tell ourselves something happened often enough we start to believe it, and then we can actually remember it.~ S.J. Watson(Before I Go to Sleep)

“For a while” is a phrase whose length can’t be measured. At least by the person who’s waiting.~ Haruki Murakami (South of the Border, West of the Sun)

I think that’s what we all want, in the end.
To know that we left footprints when we passed by, however briefly.
We want to be remembered.
So remember us.
Please.
Remember us.~ Mike A. Lancaster (Human.4)

During our visit to Stockholm, we walked around certain areas many times and enjoyed it thoroughly. I sincerely hope to get second chance to visit this beautiful city again. I would love to take some better pictures.
