Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 198

For those who need a long rest…

Welcome to the 198th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

First of all, my apologies for the very late posting of this round up; too many hours of meetings over the past week and not enough functioning brain cells to focus left at the end.

Your posts on the theme of Rest were absolutely fantastic! You were creative in your approaches and there was many a post that made me chuckle with amusement!! I’d strongly suggest that you explore each others’ posts to appreciate all that creative energy. Thank you very much for the amazing work that you did on this post!!

Here’s another place to rest one’s head…

A place to rest…

This image comes from within the walls of Špilberk Castle in the lovely town of Brno in Czechia. There were lots of places to rest within these walls, as there were plenty of cells. The castle is well worth a visit, even though there is quite a bit of hill to climb. The views from the top are stunning and the interior of the castle is truly a classic!

Please enjoy the following blog posts:

  1. Brian finds a rather restful set of ducks in his post in Bushboy’s World; these ducks appear very relaxed!
  2. Bren takes us into the past with a great photo in her post in Bren & Ashley Ryan Photography; Ightham Mote looks to be one of those classics!
  3. Diane understands the importance of letting sleeping dogs lie, as we can see in her post in pensivity101. There’s nothing more precious than a dozing dog!
  4. Kammie really covers rest well in her selection photos in her post in Nut House Central; I can relate to being pinned down by a resting dog 🙂
  5. There is nothing quite like the sleep of the innocent, as is beautifully showcased in the post in theOnlyD800intheHameau; wonderful capture!
  6. While the seagulls might float along like they are at rest, as we can see in the great photos in Don’t Hold Your Breath, we might want to stay clear of their droppings…
  7. Xenia shows us the restful nature of mosses and leaves with words and pictures in her post in whippetwisdom, as Eivor and Pearl enjoy checking them out; it’s great to rest on moss!
  8. Ken shares the benefits of a well-earned rest in his post in Pictures without Film, with a wonderful photo of his father taking a nap after shopping.
  9. Na’ama brings us a wonderful poem on that most delicate rest, which we get to enjoy in her post in Na’ama Yehuda; the photo really supports that concept as well!
  10. Sarah shares a wonderful photo in By Sarah, and, I for one, wouldn’t mind taking a bit of a rest there!
  11. Nandini writes some rather cool haikus, and I recommend that you read all of them in queennandini; it’s rather interesting how wide a variety of rest-related topics she covered!
  12. Maria captured the rest that exists in Nature beautifully in the photographs in her post in Kamerapromenader: please go enjoy them!
  13. Tatiana captured a wonderful scene in her post in GiftSmart, as Nature gets to its moment of rest; it’s interesting to see how many ways this image can be used!
  14. Jackie’s photos in her post in JunkBoat Travels definitely put a smile on my face; she captured the more enjoyable side of rest!
  15. The ducks that are featured in My Camera and I… have figured out the most enjoyable way to rest: basking in the sun!
  16. Michelle shares another awesome photo in Take a Walk and Discover…; that family looks like they’re enjoying their moment of rest!
  17. David’s photography is always stunning and he has really outdone himself in the gorgeous Nature photos in David M’s Photoblog; I particularly love the image of the swan!
  18. Rupali also brings us a very restful view in mazeepuran, as we get a peaceful Winter’s landscape.
  19. Rest can be completely disarming, as we see in the wonderful photo that is featured in Geriatri’X’ Fotogallery; what could be more precious?
  20. I have to admit that I find Viveka’s post in her blog, myguiltypleasures very intriguing; the clowns at rest are at once disturbing and wonderful!
  21. Woolly finds that there is a perfect balance between activity and rest in his post in WoollyMuses; after fun play, there’s a need for rest!
  22. Julie really highlights how rest can be achieved, even when you’re floating on a block of stone in the pool in her post in Julie Does Stuff; yes, it does look like the stone floats…
  23. In a lovely photo in Zebra’s Child, we have a chance encounter with a wonderful place for a bit of rest along our journey!
  24. Sandy is certainly not full of bull in her post in Out of my Write Mind; there’s a good reason to find a perfect spot to rest!
  25. In a lovely post in Kanlaon, we get to enjoy the time of day when rest is likely to occur, as well as the result of giving Nature a rest!
  26. Nicole truly transports us to Stratford-upon-Avon in her photos in Un Photo,Une Poeme; the gentlemen may be resting, but it appears as if the bard could arrive any moment!
  27. Aletta brings us some very peaceful, resting moments in her post in nowathome; these are moments to cherish!
  28. Deb really brings us rest in her post in Twenty Four; butterflies can have that effect and Deb’s photo is spectacular!
  29. If cattle could speak, I expect that the wonderful specimen in Land of Images would tell us to relax and take a rest!
  30. Chris brings us another cat in his post in What’s (in) the Picture, who’s just chilling! In a second contribution in What’s (in) the Picture, Chris has a great shot of a camera that’s just hanging out!
  31. In a post, to which many can relate, in One Letter Up – diary 2.0, we are reminded that there’s nothing more important than a baby’s sleep, especially to a mother!
  32. Susan photo in her post in Musin’ with Susan made me laugh, as those are the kind of contortions that we see at home from our pets! For more great photos, go check out the week in review in Musin’ with Susan; there’s one among them that really caught my eye!
  33. Emily caught a couple of cats doing what they do best in Zombie Flamingos: a comfortable chair is there just for their rest!
  34. Sheetal has put together a stunning post in her blog SheetalBravon; the caves of Ajanta are amazing and I agree that the monks’ sleeping quarters are a bit intimidating!
  35. Lisa captures the essence of rest in a wonderful photo in her post in A Day in the Life; I could see myself kicking back and resting there!
  36. Teressa has taken several approaches to the theme in her post in Another LQQk; there’s nothing like those resting babies, though!

Please let all of these great bloggers know your thoughts about their posts!

Vacation Retrospective

Confessions of a traveler!

As I selected Retrospective for this week’s TPC theme, I thought it would be nice to look back at countries visited during the 2010s! So here it goes!

Austria

Love atop the Stephanskirche!

Looking down from the shorter tower of the Stephanskirche provides an incredible view across all of Vienna!

Canada

Walking among the treetops!

In Vancouver, BC, I got to walk among the treetops, high up above the canyon floor (below…)

Scotland

Skye is simply stunning!

On the Isle of Skye, I got to see some of the most incredible landscapes, such as here, where I’m a ways up in the Quiraing range. I could sit here forever and watch the clouds change the landscape!

Israel

Apollonia National Park

I got some time in Israel to explore the Apollonia National Park in Herzliya; this amazing Roman settlement was a wonder to behold!

Italy

Looking across Massa Maritima

Our Italian trip was filled with amazing towns (idea for some posts…), such as Massa Maritima; the hill towns in Tuscany are just stunning! And the food was awesome too!

Netherlands

Centraal Station, Rotterdam

As can be expected, there have been numerous trips to the Netherlands, and Rotterdam is still among my favorite cities in this world!

Iceland

The Herring Era

Iceland is filled with amazing vistas, and I spent way too little time there (4 days) to scratch the surface. One of my discoveries was the Herring Era museum in Siglufjördur! It brought one back to a different time!

Czech Republic

Looking up in Prague!

Sometimes, travel doesn’t go as planned, and you get to spend an additional 24 hours in a location. This happened in Prague, which is not a bad place to find yourself in!

Ukraine

A view in Kharkiv

My visit to Ukraine was fantastic, as the hospitality was amazing and I got to see some of the sights, such as the view here!

England

Albert Docks at Night

Liverpool, England, was an impromptu visit that gave me the opportunity to see my favorite Premier League team play at Anfield, their home ground! A fantastic city too!

In less than 2 weeks, I will be in India, so the adventure continues!!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 172

Overhead can be a good thing!

Welcome to the 172nd round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

Things are looking up! Your posts for this week’s theme were spectacular and showed a tremendous amount of creativity. There certainly were a couple that blew me away, both in terms of content and artistry, and I’ll be curious to hear which among all these great posts had a similar effect on you. I feel privileged to read all of your contributions to the theme of Overhead, and they were extremely enjoyable!!

Thank you for all the effort that you put into these posts, and I hope that you enjoy reading each other’s posts!

Here’s a bit more of an overhead view…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Sculpture

Welcome to week 170 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

I’m home and slowly catching up, after getting a flight cancelled on Saturday and thus not getting home until Sunday. There was a benefit, as it allowed me to visit the beautiful city of Prague on Saturday. I’m halfway through this last week’s Round Up and will finish it on Tuesday night.

For this week’s theme, I was inspired by the significant amount of wall decoration that I encountered both in Brno and Prague. The theme of Sculpture challenges you to share photography of Sculpture both large and small, as you enjoy it in your world. There should be plenty of opportunity to find some cool Sculpture!

Have fun and feel free to make some faces back at the sculpture!

Here’s a rather serious looking gent, as he holds up the wall…

The load is heavy…

This is one of the sculptures that can be found on buildings off one of the main squares in Brno. Their faces are expressive and sometimes even a bit intimidating!

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 just stand there like a statue! Go out and capture some sculpture…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 168

Inside the wall…

Welcome to the 168th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

My apologies for this very late round up; sometimes business travel can overtake one’s schedule and that certainly happened this week.

Finishing up this wonderful array of posts on the theme of Wall in my hotel room in Prague makes me appreciate all the creativity of your entries even more. My brain and eyes may be tired, but your entries broke through those barriers and made me smile, chuckle and muse with appreciation in viewing and reading your awesome posts!

Thank you very kindly for all of your great posts and the hard work that went into them and even more for your patience!

Here is another view of a wall…

Inside the walls…Spilberk Castle

The climb up to Spilberk Castle is good exercise on a warm day, for which you are rewarded with a spectacular bit of construction. As it was later in the day, I only had time to visit the Casemate, which included the interior of the wall. Believe me, you didn’t want to end up here as a prisoner…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Hill

Atop the hill…

Welcome to week 169 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

As I am traveling for work this week, I have been pretty much out of touch due to long work days and little time between meetings. My apologies for the resultant delay. As I will have this evening to myself, I will get last week’s round up done then. Also, I should get the chance for some personal time on Friday to get a bit of photography in as well…

As I did get the chance to look out of my hotel room at night, there was a bit of inspiration that led to this week’s theme of Hill. In the town of Brno, there is a spectacular view of Spilberk Castle, which has stood atop the hill for over seven centuries. Therefore, your challenge is to share your favorite hills and/or what you find atop them.

I’m looking forward to seeing what hills you climb and capture!

Here’s the castle on the hill…

Spilberk Castle

This view is from my 12th floor hotel room; this room has the feature that windows open all the way, so that I could get a good view. I’ve also taken a couple of EOS R shots that I will process in the near future.

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)!!

Hope you have fun with this week’s (day late) theme and conquer the hills!
