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! 🙂

A Word A Week Challenge: Old

This week, Sue’s dictionary fell open to the word “Old,” and now we are challenged with finding photographs that fit the theme.

Next, a bit of detail from an old light fixture inside the Smithsonian Castle:

Last two are faces of our elders. There is wisdom that comes with the years.
