Travel Theme: Mystical

18/11/2012

This week, Ailsa of Where’s My Backpack?, challenged readers to post photos of something that means “Mystical”…

A couple of winters ago I visited Kona, Hawai’i for the first time.  Just south of Kona is a national historical site, Puuhonua o Honaunau.  It is one of the most sacred sites in Hawai’i and the temple there, at one time, housed the bones of 23 chiefs.  It was also the home of royal grounds and a sacred place of refuge for those who broke the laws, or kapu.  These are photos of the temple site and the kii (wooden images of gods) that guarded it.  Read about the site in the link above, it’s an incredible history.  This is one place I would love to return someday!

Travel Theme: Soft

12/11/2012

This week’s travel theme from Where’s My Backpack is “Soft”.  I really liked this photo, as it shows the softness of something that usually can be so powerful.  It is a great image of a soft, glowing sunset and the gently lapping waves on Tampa Bay when I visited some years ago…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Big

14/10/2012

I had to think through my files of photos for this. As I was glancing through the folders, I found my pics of a business trip to Las Vegas.  Bigger than life. EVERYTHING.  I remember walking from my hotel room to the conference center, through the casinos and OTB rooms in Mandalay Bay – you could get lost so easily!  On a free afternoon and evening, I went for a walk on the Strip.  Here are some pictures that say BIG to me…
