Travel theme: Ripples

I took far too many photos of those cheeky little ducklings during my visit to Magnuson Park, so I had to put them to good use in this week’s travel theme. Here are a few of the ripples they made, along with some other memorable ripples I’ve encountered.

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

    Ailsa, your photos as always are second to none. Thank you for posting. Also thank you for providing me with the inspiration for a new menu section of my blog. I will be promoting a great deal using the words the “Ripple Effect.” I had no idea how to start this article. The sensitivity of the material contained within left me grasping for breath. Your travel theme gave it life.

    It is regretable that I cannot title it as a travel theme, and regretable that I cannot cite you in this one. The article, “Fundacion Proyecto Ayuda Al Niño – Casa de Luz,” needs to be of the utmost integrity. It is my hope that you and your readers will read this piece and share it through whatever means. There will be many more along these same lines. Again, thank you for the inspiration.

    I look forward to next week’s theme to once again participate as normal.

    ~Gringa

    Lovely theme this week and when I found some images in my sons GoPro today after a trip to the beach with his friend, I felt they were apt. Of course I was very proud to see what my 15 year-old had captured… http://jennhammerphotography.wordpress.com/2013/06/23/a-boy-and-his-camera-the-results/

  24. Laughter and colors, a happy photo, Ailsa. Thank you 🙂

    What a fun photo theme! I’m using birds to illustrate how ripples can affect their reflection in the water. 🙂
