Travel theme: Couples

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.



About ailsapm

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 - - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

    Finally got mine up. Some “different” takes on the theme, I think–my own broad interpretation =) Hope ya’ll enjoy!

    Ô les perroquets…. Ils sont magnifiques !
    Ok, I believe that “perroquets” are parrots in English, but who cares if I can’t spell in English, it’s not my language… They are just magnificent…

    Love the parrot colors! My entry is a couple of shorebirds with cool-looking orange beaks:

  13. These are all wonderful images of couples – the flamingoes and little sculptures are my favorites, I think.
    This past weekend was Soup Day, so I’m still reorganizing my house and catching up. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to find the photos want – so instead I’ll share a previous post that has some really cute couples in it!
    Hope you enjoy – and I’ll try to do better next week! 😉

  16. Hi Ailsa,
    Here’s my response to this week’s challenge. Thanks again for the inspiration.

    Bummer. Here it is the end of the week, and I have not one single couple. 🙂 There must be SOMETHING in my gazillion photos that would fit this theme. I reckon I just let myself get all lazy. I’ll go make peanut butter cookies and go over photos in my mind. As some famous person once said somewhere about something to someone, “I’ll be back.”

    Pairs, Couples, Twins, Partners…..
    when they move in pairs, hunt in pairs, dance in pairs, sing in pairs, run in pairs, play in pairs…. they add so much more.
    Here I include some interesting captures apart from selections from my favourite dancers in pairs, that run in thousands!

    These are great shots. I believe I like the one with the adult male couple best. Great job.

    Another good theme, although it can be tough to catch a single couple in a shot, I did manage a few pictures to contribute
