Weekly Photo Challenge: Pure

This week’s theme on Pure threw me for a little bit – I wasn’t quite sure what angle to take and therefore had no idea what photos to look for… until the thought of a waterfall hit me!

I visited the Chamarel waterfall in Mauritius in 2012…

And from there it evolved a bit to glacial / mountain water when I travelled through Switzerland / Liechtenstein earlier in 2012…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth

I have travelled to 37 countries and so I’ve seen my fair share of beauty that Mother Earth has to offer us… which means that finding photos for this challenge was a challenge in itself. I could spend hours going through my archives (I’m yet to save my photos in a program that allows tagging, and therefore searching) so I chose only a few places, and from there decided to use only photos that I’m fairly certain have not been used on my blog before. I find that oftentimes one photo could fit into many themes but I don’t want to keep using the same ones… I’d rather share some of the unseen beauties that I have hidden away 🙂

I hope you enjoy what I’ve put together for you this week!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand

I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry! I have been a little non-existent lately around the blogosphere, and my poor excuse(s) this time are that it’s silly season here in Dubai and I seem to be busy all the time (or hungover, but don’t tell my mom that! 😉 )

So, with this week’s photo challenge, I’ve decided to make a Grand comeback and get myself back to regular posting, especially so that my new followers (a quick shout out to them – HI!) don’t get bored of me 🙂

Well, what a subject for the photo this week… at first I was going to post a photo of the Blue Mountains that we visited in Sydney a few weeks back, but then upon further delving into my archives, I came across my photos from our trip to Europe (Germany, Poland, Czech Republic and Switzerland) last year and decided that one of these babies would be far more entertaining for you.

But then I couldn’t just settle on one… so here are a few photos from that holiday which I find absolutely Grand!

Enjoy 😛
