Weekly Photo Challenge: Now

Old Town Walls of Nessebar,
Location: Nessebar, Burgas, Bulgaria
I took this picture while walking around the ruins of the old town walls of Nessebar in Bulgaria.

It gave me great pleasure to visit Nessebar. Founded more than 3,000 years ago, it’s considered one of the oldest towns in Europe.

At the same time, traveling should be less about ruminating on the past and what might have been. Rather, it should be more about opening up to new experiences. It’s about seizing the moment before it passes you by. It’s about seeing flowers in bloom among the ruins. It’s about living now.

    When i am around old things like this (well, nothing like that, really, in the USA), I am both in the present, exploring its wonder and in an imaginary past. Nice choice for the challenge.

    That’s a really nice picture Plaridel, I love the way you put it. Sometimes we are so busy taking pictures we miss the original moment during our travels.. πŸ™‚

      maybe there’s logic behind the “no photo” policy of some museums and other sites after all. πŸ™‚

    I love old Nessebar. It’s both a UNESCO World Heritage site and a living town. It’s wonderful to see the artists set up their stands next to the pale gray stone and red brick remains of the 5th century Church of Saint Sofia. There as well small children kick balls where once there was a multi-doored iconostasis, run around where there was once the pew-less nave common to the Eastern Church, and call to each other within the surviving walls and on the plaza in front.
