Just a random moment while I was exiting Sant’Ivo alla Sapienza. The color of the wall, the afternoon shadows, and the nonchalant fellow just seemed to work perfectly together. A larger version is viewable here.
That’s not a hard question at all. I’ve mentioned my love of LEGOs before, but I haven’t really taken any photos of them. Considering this week’s challenge calls for something awesome among the mundane, these little bricks were perfect. Yes, that’s a Hamlet-themed figure, my favorite of the bunch (except maybe the Goth Girl. She’s adorable). Yes, that is also the LEGO Leaning Tower of Pisa in the background; I get one of the Architecture sets every year for Christmas. It’s a fun, geeky way to inspire more traveling and building.
This week’s challenge calls for something close up, and I remembered taking this photo of a glass pistol during the tequila factory tour in Mexico. All the little imperfections in the cork and the light reflected in the barrel look pretty neat at this angle. Since today is apparently National Tequila Day, I thought it’d be worth posting. Talk about putting the shot in shot glass!
I should preface this by saying that I don’t drink; I’m a water, tea, and milk kind of guy, so I went around taking photos while everyone else was taking shots. This was taken at El Baston del Rey, a tequila factory that was part of a city tour in Puerto Vallarta. But since today is apparently National Tequila Day, I thought I’d post it.
This week’s challenge is all about photos you’ve taken along the way to your destination. I immediately thought of Highway 250 on Hawaii’s Big Island. Most people don’t associate cows and farmland with Hawaii’s tropical paradise, so Kohala’s highlands seem so wonderfully strange.
Nothing like a Sunday stroll…on a flower stalk. Large version available here.
