Travel theme: Move

My travel-loving soul has been yearning to hit the road for quite a while now, but as I am stuck in one place for just a little while longer, I am easing my Wanderlust by making great plans and leafing through my travel shots for photos filled with movement, like this little bird just launching into flight in a Manhattan park.

Rush hour traffic moving ever so slowly across Dublin‘s Beckett Bridge.

Along the shores on Long Island, I spent hours trying to capture that perfect moment just before a wave breaks. It’s almost like the ocean holding its breath ever so slightly, waiting to exhale.

I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move. – R.L. Stevenson

All experience is an arch wherethrough gleams that untravelled world whose margin fades for ever and for ever when I move. – Alfred Lord Tennyson

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.

    Great theme this week Ailsa. That wave is beautifully caught showing the iridescent underside. I’m dancing this week…

  15. What a wonderful way to describe a wave.

      I find the ocean captivating, Dawn, I can spend hours just staring at the waves and listening to the crashing surf, there’s something so primal about it. 🙂

    I love that analogy, “like the ocean holding its breath ever so slightly, waiting to exhale.” I grew up near the ocean and I love that moment right before the wave breaks. And you captured that moment beautifully both in word and image. Hope you get the chance to “move around” soon, even if it’s just a spot in town, a street you’ve never gone down or a touristy spot you’ve always been avoiding. Thank you as always for sharing.

    The horses bring back great memories of a rainy day and a great walk along the canals to the Camden Market. Thank you!

    I am just returning to WordPress and am not sure I did this correctly. I, too, love watching the moment just before the wave breaks. Your analogy is spot on. Please let me know if this submission works. Thanks.
