Living in the journey

“Once you have travelled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.”
– Pat Conroy

Life is full of journeys. Twenty one years ago, the Big T and I had just set out on the longest and most significant voyage of our lives — nurturing the embryo that would become our son. It’s a journey filled with memories that refresh and strengthen as we share new moments together.

(not exactly) Wordless Wednesday

Definitely a wordy Wednesday today. But as I was editing the shot, I learned that New Zealand’s Minister for Women and Associate Minister for Transport, Julie Anne Genter, gave birth to a son this morning. She is a Green Party MP and has always advocated strongly for women.

And … she rode to hospital to deliver her child on a bicycle. So the Anthony quote seems particularly apt today.

Day Seven

My friend Sarah at Art Expedition hosted this variation on the Seven Day B&W Challenge — asking that the image include people.

The rules are:

• Thank the person who has nominated/tagged you and provide a link to their blog.

•  Go out and take pictures of complete strangers for 7 days in a row and post one of them each day of the challenge (you can also post 7 photos in one post if you´re more comfortable with this).

• The photos should be in b/w.

• Nominate as many people as you like

If you haven’t visited Sarah’s blog to see her Berlin street photography, please do.

Seven Day B&W Challenge — Street Photography: Day Seven

My friend Sarah at Art Expedition is hosting a variation on the Seven Day B&W Challenge — this time the image must include people.

The rules are:

• Thank the person who has nominated/tagged you and provide a link to their blog.

•  Go out and take pictures of complete strangers for 7 days in a row and post one of them each day of the challenge (you can also post 7 photos in one post if you´re more comfortable with this).

• The photos should be in b/w.

• Nominate as many people as you like

I haven’t managed to get out shooting as much as I’d like, so this challenge has taken  way longer than expected, but it is definitely worth doing.

As always, I’m not a fan of individual nominations, but invite everyone to take part in this if you can fit it in your blogging schedule.

And don’t forget to visit Sarah’s blog and see her Berlin street photography.
