Back on the Road

This is an old photo to show you what I am up to now and to let you know I will be away between the 1st and the 11th October. Don’t be fooled by the folded map – It is Italy, not France that I am heading to this time. I just hope I’ll manage to pack smart this once.

All challenges and activities will be resumed on the 12th October when next Black & White Sunday is scheduled. Next Thursday Special is on the 16th October.

 Until then, godspeed to you all!

Thursday’s Special: Portrait

Today I’ve  decided to show a portrait of my cactus taken at the time while he was still breathing and shining. Maybe you remember what he looked like on his last day. I have never found out what particular species he was, but he used to be special to me. I’m inclined to believe that his premature departure is owed to his accidental fall and not to my extensive care.

This Thursday you are invited to share a portrait photo (or several of them) or post whatever you find inspiring at the moment. Remember, this is a theme-less non-challenge and you can go wild ;) For more details please see the original TS post.

Getting Wet

In the western Julian Alps close to the border with Slovenia runs Rio del Lago in the valley by the same name. The walk up there was memorable, though not without a splash or two.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance

This Friday our Weekly Photo Challenge hostess Krista is asking us to “Show what endurance means to you. Is it that high-school diploma, beads of sweat earned on a long run, a treasured family heirloom, or something else entirely?”

Here is my take on the theme…. with appropriate score.

Why don’t you grab the widget that Cardinal Guzman created specifically for this challenge. It is not the WPC official widget, but it is far more original and pleasing to the eye.
