Weekly Photo Challenge: Humanity

This week’s challenge is to take photos we’ve shot while traveling, and which show humanity. I still think of photos I take in Boston as travel photos, even though we’re coming up on three years here. Still, though, most of my photos for this challenge will be from this spring’s trip to Colombia.

Wide variety of pics here, most of farmers in Colombia who were showing Americans what they do, or just watching and listening as their family or friends did. 🙂 Good times.

If you have pics you thing will fit the theme, click on the link above and participate in the challenge. I dare you! 🙂

International Carnival in Cambridge, Mass.

I recently posted photos from the Boston Carnival event, and this weekend, we attended a similar event (with some of the same performers and costumes) in Cambridge. We started at the staging area, and had the opportunity to watch workers put some of the large costumes/props together. We then hustled out to the parade route, to watch the performers in action. Such a fun event, and I highly recommend it to anyone who has the opportunity to see it, or a similar one closer to your home.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the day:
