Travel theme: Soft

It’s getting cold around here and I’m staying warm with a soft fleece jacket and soft fluffy socks. All this softness got me looking through my photos to find images that fitted the theme. Here’s what I came up with:

A cheeky red cardinal in New York’s Central Park

The softly-coloured stained glass windows of the Actor’s Chapel in Manhattan

A mound of shea butter waiting to be sold by the scoop at a street market

Delicate grasses around Snug Harbor on Staten Island

A bunny in Alley Pond Park, Queens. It doesn’t get much softer than this!

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.

    Hi Ailsa,
    Great theme again, and all these pictures are so gorgious.
    What a devine red bird, that cardinal.

    Here is my kind of spiritual interpretation of “soft”. .

    And here ‘s a second one, straight from the heart…

    Have a tender week
