Watching the sun set along the Oregon Coast I saw a couple walking hand in hand along the beach.
A little later, watching the same sun set a few miles further along the coast, I watched a couple of children walk along the shore, the little boy reaching for the girl’s hand.
It seemed to be the perfect theme for this week, so I went rummaging through my photos for other couples I have photographed. Here’s what I came up with:
Now over to you. If you’d like to join in this week’s travel theme, here’s what to do:
- Create your own post featuring couples and title it Travel Theme: Couples
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday
- Don’t forget to subscribe to keep up to date on the latest weekly travel themes
I can’t wait to see your daring duos, your perfect pairs and your terrible twins.
Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall.
And I’m just getting started.
If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - wheresmybackpack.com - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

Hi Ailsa, great theme this week here’s my first attempt at the weekely themeshttp://truetravelings.wordpress.com/2012/10/19/travel-theme-couples/
Yaay, welcome aboard, truetravelingtales, and look at you getting in early with the first entry. I’m still playing catch up with last week’s wonderful entries 🙂 Great couples, those tortoises are magnificent, and I love the first one of the man and the little boy on the bike. x
Brilliant choice of photos … the last one is my favorite … very cute figures …. maybe not so colorful as the rest, but cute will do it for me today – have a great weekend.
Cute is always good! You have a great weekend too, Viveka!

Horses again!!!! http://annarashbrook.wordpress.com/2012/10/19/travel-themecouples/
Yes, I love horses – that last photo is particularly lovely, the horses are gorgeous and the scenery is breathtaking!
And I love your interpretation of couples!
Thought I would only see adult human couples,
but love to see animals and children too!
It’s always nice to shake things up a bit, Claudia 🙂
once you offered the travel theme SILHOUETTES – now they are following with the weekly photo challenge: http://flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2012/10/19/weekly-photo-challenge-silhouette/
Haha, excellent, frizztext, glad to see I’m leading the way! xxx
hi Ailsa, you are leading many of us with your creative and positive ideas, thank you!
Adorable, love this photo, frizztext.
Hi Frizz, I couldn’t comment on your two-subjects post, so I’d just write it down here, I thought that the photograph of the cat and the dog was simply ingenious! Loved it. 🙂
I love your selection Ailsa – brought a smile, always good.
Thanks Lynne, smiles do a body good! 🙂

G’day Ailsa another great theme. I’m getting in quick before we get on the train. We have such colourful and friendly birds in Aus…
Oops forgot link. http://pommepal.wordpress.com/2012/10/20/travel-theme-couples/
Ooh, they really are rainbow-coloured, aren’t they, pommepal? I love how gentle they are with one another, really enjoyed your post. xxx
Thank you Ailsa for the comment, they are gentle with their partner but can be very aggresive if any other birds invade their territory
Lovely pics, Ailsa!! Usually I only *love* nature/animal pics, but given that the beach and romance was involved in the first two, I loved them all!! I’m gonna wait a day or so on this one, it’ll take some digging…but I would really love for you to check out this week’s Pictorial Highlight of mine on Red Rock Canyon State Park (shades of Utah in California!!), I like this one and it has some really cool pics of an owl and a nice little “travelogue” blurb about finding them =) http://therewildwest.wordpress.com/2012/10/18/pictorial-highlight-red-rock-canyon-state-park/
–Love and Liberation–
Wonderful, Jan, the owl photos are gorgeous!
Thank you–they’re soooo blurry, if only I’d had my 500 mm lens at that point in my ilfe!! But even a blurry owl picture is enjoyable to me at least =)

This is a fabulous theme, Ailsa! Your parrots and flamingos are simply stunning photographs. I am really looking forward to seeing the interpretations from your followers. In keeping with your travel focus, my contribution includes pics taken in Hong Kong, Toronto, Edmonton, Melbourne, Williamstown, Fitzroy, Separation Creek, Byron Bay and Adelaide. Oh, and it includes some musings about the urge to merge. I really enjoyed compiling this collection, so thanks heaps for suggesting this theme 🙂
Love it, Cinova, the two guys at Toronto Pride are all kinds of fabulous, and I love the bubble-filled shot of the wedding dance! xxx
Love your couples photos, Ailsa. This is an interesting theme. 🙂

Magpies are cool, pommepal, they’re such smart birds. Love that one of Jack with the magpie family. That bottom photo is amazing, what gorgeous-looking birds.
