Photo-walking into my collection to select 7 best pictures taken throughout my travels is a challenging task. Not that I am a pro myself, all pictures have their own stories that will be able to jog me down the memory lane.
I have been tagged by Anis of Five Foot Traveller and Lily of GlobeTrotter. No choice, I’m taking part in Hostelbookers 7 Super Shot. It’s actually a tagging game initiated by Hostelbookers for travel bloggers to share their 7 best pictures. Each blogger has to post photos and its description according to the themes given.
Here’s my 7 Super Shots!
1) A PHOTO THAT TAKES MY BREATH AWAY
Doljo Beach, Panglao, Philippines
It was my first day in Panglao when I begged a local man to bring me to a sunset spot. So, there was I waiting for sunset which never came that day. The sun had been blocked by the heavy clouds. At Doljo Beach, there’s a native hut built by the locals to be rented to picnickers. During the evening, the native huts were let afloat. Suddenly, the blues set in. What I love about this picture is the unusual blue combination that it captures.
2) A PHOTO THAT MAKES ME LAUGH/SMILE
Hoi An, Vietnam
Where there’s love, the world smiles together. Isn’t this picture sweet and loving?
3) A PHOTO THAT MAKES ME DREAM
That dream to move freely, to dance without the rhythm, to live life with no rules.
4) A PHOTO THAT MAKES ME THINK
The border that separates us. That thin line that makes us A, not B. The choice of life we undertake.
These were ribbons spotted at Demilitarized Zone, South Korea. Although I don’t read Koreans, I have been told the ribbons connote messages by the family members grieved by the Korean war, missing their family members over the border.
5) A PHOTO THAT MAKES MY MOUTH WATER
Hey, hey, I’m a seafood frenzy. Spread on a table by the beach of Panglao, I had a huge plate of all of them alone by the beach of Panglao!! Yes, I was travelling alone then.
6) A PHOTO THAT… I AM MOST PROUD OF (AKA MY WORTHY OF NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SHOT)
This shot was taken on my second day in India. On a holy land of Hampi, the Indians bath in the river and dry clothes by just holding them for god-knows-how-long. Look at this old man!!
SO, I AM TAGGING THOSE WHO READ ME AND HAVE NOT BEEN TAGGED YET. GO FIND YOUR PICTURES AND LEAVE ME A COMMENT THAT DIRECTS ME TO YOUR #7SUPERSHOTS.
