A different perspective

Sometime it’s nice to get a different perspective on things.

IMG_0808

Using my phone, I quickly snapped this pic yesterday afternoon on the (usually busy) streets of Ubud, Indonesia. This little pup sat there as if he was waiting patiently for the traffic to pass, as if he had all the time in the world. He eventually trotted over to the other side and disappeared behind a row of scooters.

Optimistic

This week’s photo challenge is about being Optimistic

People venture to Las Vegas full of optimism, closely followed by dashed hopes, despair & empty wallets!.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Alphabet

Alphabet:

The challenge this week is letters:  I love this picture, firstly because it’s New York. But for the theme this week, I love how the glowing letters on each and every sign and slogan competes for your attention and tries to ‘out-brighten’ each other.

Memories of Venice

In April last year while in Los Angeles we ventured down to Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach for the day. As it turned out, Venice was one of my favourite destinations during our 7 week trek across the United States.

Older people rollerskated near a much younger generation of skateboarders. The hustle-bustle of tourists, locals, out-of-towners and wanderers stretched along a seemingly infinite path, casually sidestepping oncoming bicycles, scooters and rollerblades. One eye people-watched while my other eye scoured the goods laid out by an eclectic, and mostly happy group of artisans. We strode past Muscle beach, invoking images of old-school bodybuilders in daggy 80’s workout clothes.

It was bustling, but peaceful. Modern, but nostalgic. Crowded, but spacious. The entire area was a contradiction of itself and I loved it. So did my camera, although it didn’t get used to its full extent. Maybe one day I’ll go back and let the camera lead the way.

But for now, here are a few things I did capture. I’ve also included shots taken from the pier and surrounds…
