I’m using a few of my older photos for this weeks photo challenge.

The first photo was taken in Berlin during a Holi Festival. I can still feel the excitement as the DJ counted down to the moment we threw our colored powder as high as we could. We all cheered, laughed and danced as the colors settled down.

The second photo was taken in Hawaii during the winter surf season. The waves roared and thundered. Spectators sat silently on the beach to marvel.

The third photo was taken in Berlin during a festival called Karneval der Kulturen. At the end of the day-long parade, drummers got together and played for the happy, dancing crowd.

I came upon these photos I took a few years in West Texas. If you look you can find beauty, even in the desert.

Unfortunately, at the time these photos were taken, this part of Texas was going through their worse drought since The Great Depression.

Slow Me Down

Slow Me Down

I feel like the days have been stressful and frantic lately. I just want to go back to this moment in time when I snapped these photos. It was calm, quiet, rainy, and I was on the hike with my family. I stood by the stream and watched the mist slowly roll through the trees.

The third photo was taken at a different place. During a bright, sunny, cold day on the beach.

I’ve been busy updating my Projects page. I added a new cities and country list to my Stolpersteine Project, because I need your help finding these stones!

I’ve also just started a new Facebook Page for my blog. If you have a Facebook account, please ‘Like’ my page to follow up on my adventures living abroad!
