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! 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Adventure

I’ve been away from the Weekly Photo Challenge for a while, but decided to come back today to share photos from our weekend adventure; a boat tour of a couple-dozen lighthouses in Rhode Island, including a stop on an island for lunch and a bit of exploring its lighthouse.

Many of Rhode Island's lighthouses look like this - on a bed of rocks ("island"). The houses themselves are in various states of repair.

So much fun, and we learned a lot! Every time I go to Rhode Island, I fall in love a little more. It’s a beautiful state!
