Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth

Austria Alps

 
Whenever I travel, I’m amazed to see how beautiful is the world we’re living in. The camera is my witness. It doesn’t lie. No matter where I go, I find something to please the senses.

Of course, I have favorites. The Austrian Alps region is one of them. The views are gorgeous with the mountains, rivers, and green landscapes in perfect harmony.

The above picture was taken while traveling from Salzburg to Hallstatt. During the trip, I kept my eyes wide open so as not to miss the scenery all around us. It was simply priceless.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

Margaret Krook

Location: Stockholm, Sweden
 
A bronze statue stands outside the Royal Dramatic Theater in Stockholm. It belongs to Margaret Krook, Sweden’s most beloved stage and movie actress who died in 2001. It’s placed on the same spot where she went for smoke break in between rehearsals.

From the distance, it looks uninviting and cold like any other statue. But surprise! Tourists who stop by to pay homage to Margaret Krook and touch her statue find it warm. Marie-Louise Ekman, the artist who created it, made sure it stays warm to room temperature using heating coils all year through.

Over the years, the statue has experienced discoloration due to exposure to the elements and the thousands of hands touching and rubbing it especially around the belly area. It’s maybe time to restore the statue back to its former glory.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Security

Kids on the Park

Location: The Parthenon, Athens, Greece
 
Safety in numbers comes to mind when I see kids going on a field trip together to a museum or to an ancient site. Oftentimes, the place can be so crowded with tourists that wearing color-coded baseball caps becomes handy. It surely helps keep track of everybody in the group.

This is another picture that I took outside the National Archaeological Museum in Naples, Italy. In my humble opinion, it’s commendable that kids are exposed to culture at an early age in a relatively safe and secure manner. The experience will last them a lifetime.
