photo of the week
Every week I'm on the road I choose a photo of the week. Sometimes it's a fantastic photo, other times it's all about what that shot meant to me. Be sure to let me know what you think.
My great friend Julia gave me a gorgeous card and some sachets of Africafe the coffee we had found and were obsessed with when I left Africa. I have been drinking them around the world when ever I can and am down to my last two! This is me, drinking coffee from Kenya in Bali for Julia. Love you Jules!
The Katy Trail is a rail trail running 370 miles across Missouri, mostly following the river. Its all flat and easy to ride and most people do it in about a week. This was Sedalia which was at the end of my first day. So very "small town USA" and I met some lovely people that evening. It like so many small towns is really struggling and the Katy Trail is helping to bring tourism to this area. Its a stunning slice of the country and I have all my fingers crossed that towns like this will benefit from this cycling tourism.
This weeks photo is pure Korea. Part of a day tour I did on Jeju Island involved a visit to the trick museum. Its full of pictures that are either famous (like the Mona LIsa) or are trick photos. The whole idea is that you become involved. This particular example is a classic. Look at it from the left and the models legs are short and stocky, look at it from the right and they are long and slender. See - pure Korea!
I took this with my phone and its not anything that will mean anything to any of you, but it was a really fun hour for me. My first morning in Kuching was pouring with rain and I ran into this very Asian cafe to grab a coffee (it looked expensive) and try to sit out the rain. The cafe was really affordable and fried noodles and egg and 2 coffee's later I was still watching the Kuching photography club working with a Russian model. They were so proud she was Russian and they were having so much fun too.
Jenny - photography lover but someone who hates lugging around HUGE camera's so my images are all from my Olympus OMD or my little Sony digital.
