Weekly Photo Challenge: Through

24 Mar

Through the aerial roots of this old tree...

“Through”. That’s the inspiration for this week’s photo challenge from WordPress. Humm… Physically speaking? Emotionally through? A passage? A rite of passage? Too many different interpretations for this one single theme. What’s “through” for you? For me, it means passage, strategy, possibilities to overcome challenges…

Since we’re getting through one more week, let’s see how it goes regarding the challenge:

A detailed view from a particular site at the Reuben Island Prison, South Africa - many tried to escape through...

Walking through the city, through old cobblestone steps, São Luis do Maranhão, Brazil

Taking a boat trip through the mangrove in Itamaracá Island, Brazil

Watching the sunset through the rocks in Jericoacoara Beach

"Take my hand and walk me through this path... through your lens I'll see your world..."

And finally, walking through the excited crowd, experiencing the largest street carnival in the world!

      Hey – we were! :o Not bad, though! It’s from Carnival here in Recife, Brazil, on our walk to the Official Box, where we watched the parade – granted, the box is a built-in mini city, surrounded by walls, with a buffet service and beverages… much nicer (and safer!) than being down with the crowd.. but it could be a ton of fun, people say… I’m more of a watcher, than a walker! :o Thanks for stopping by, Cobbies69!

      Thank you… it’s an old tree by the Northeastern coast of Brazil, and its name in Portuguese could be translated as the “lazy tree”, because, due to time and wind speed, it ‘slowly’ went down to sleep… its roots are happily standing up in the air.. its one of the feel horizontal trees (still alive) in the world… Thanks for stopping by! If your curious, search “Jericoacoara” on the blog for more curious images on this unique piece of nature’s art! :o
