Tuesday Photo Challenge – Trip

Tripping the light fantastic

Welcome to Week 107 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge.  I just got back from a long trip where I hit 6 countries in 10 days, including one that I didn’t plan on, but more about that later.

As this was a long, strange and mostly excellent trip, I thought that I’d use that as a theme for this week’s challenge: Trip.  Part of the reason is that I already used Travel as a theme in week 57 (I had to look to verify that), and Trip can still be about travel, but also about the other meanings of the word.  You get full choice this week to decide how you would like to use this week’s theme!

So, please use your creative brain, and share something to amaze and delight all who want to find out about this Trip!  Have fun with this one!

This is from a previous trip to Brno, Czech Republic…

Skating in Brno
Skating in Brno

This square is in front of the Moravian Gallery in Brno, where people could skate around this great horse and knight statue; someone may even have tripped here!

The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
  • Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
  • Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!

Don’t let this assignment trip you up, and make sure the light is fantastic!

Surprise, Surprise!

Brno is full of surprises!

Seeing this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge of Surprise, brought me back to last year’s visit to the wonderful city of Brno; a place that I hope to visit again soon!  Brno is an interesting city to explore, as it provides a wonderful mixture of architecture going as far back to medieval times to modern with a great number of thought-provoking art installations included for good measure.

As a result, Brno is a city that will often surprise you with lots of things to see.  Here’s a sampler from my day in Brno…

Enjoy your weekend, and remember to keep your eyes peeled for anything that might surprise you!

Brno – Day 2

Various Views of Brno

Before I get locked inside all day, starting tomorrow, for meetings, I spent a bit more recovery time outside today to get a sense of the layout of Brno and snap a couple more photos.

All were shot with my brand new Fuji X-T1 with its Fuji 18-135mm wonderful lens.

 

Brno – day 1

A quick photo tour of Brno

As I was having a hard time staying awake at 2 in the afternoon, I took a quick shower and went for a walk to first hit an ATM (money in pocket is useful), that spoke more than just Czech, and then just wander and see what I ran into.  I didn’t get lost completely, and found some interesting items.

Here are a couple that have not been edited yet…
