Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette
Finally landed safe and sound in Seoul yesterday, after 3 epic days of stopovers and travel. Call me crazy, but it was actually kind of fun. :p
The blog has definitely suffered over my last 2 months of travel, but I’m back at home base now, and have a lot of stories and photos to share about our return to North America.
First up though… getting back on track with the Weekly Photo Challenge. Silhouette’s are maybe one of my favourite types of photos to capture. It’s almost impossible for them to turn out badly!
Here are 2 that I love.
The first is from Galle, Sri Lanka, the home of UNESCO World Heritage listed Galle Fort. Built by the Portuguese in 1588, extensively fortified by the Dutch during the 17th Century, and reconstructed by the Archaeological Department of Sri Lanka after the 2004 Tsunami, the Fort is full of fanciful cafes, shops, and heritage buildings.
A day spent wandering it’s atmospheric, flower-lined streets, was capped off with ice cream and a dawn-of time feeling sunset.
Our time in Egypt was not the most peaceful (touts, touts, touts), but this dazzling sunset over the Nile River in Aswan, did a lot to ease our frazzled traveler’s energy.
