Inspired by my travels through Strongbow’s old stomping grounds in Ireland, I looked around for a few photos that might represent the theme strong. First up, an awe-inspiring man sauntered past me in Guatemala as if he were just out for a daily constitutional. Now that’s what I call endurance.
A strongly-coloured red cardinal cutting quite a dash in a snowy Central Park, New York.
A ‘strong’ I can’t live without – seriously strong, dark, fully leaded coffee. Mmmm.
So what do you feel strongly about? If you would like to join in this week’s travel theme with your own interpretation (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:
- Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Strong
- 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

The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places. – Ernest Hemingway
Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. – A.A. Milne
Great capture. Would also make perfectly suitable submission for this week’s Weekly Photo Callenge: Endurance. 🙂
Haha, what a coincidence, I love it when photo themes work together! I shall add in a ping to the endurance theme. 🙂
Oh yeah. Definitely! 🙂

It amazes me some of the loads I’ve seen some people bearing throughout Asia, like in the first photo, especially the amount of older people doing the same kind of work. And I certainly must agree with you about the strong coffee.
The theme just immediately reminded me of a obscenely cartoonish statue of a bodybuilder in Malaysia.
Whoops, wrong link.
Oh Ben, that statue is just bizarre, you’re right, it looks like a child’s head stuck on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s torso.
