Photo Project: 52 Bolivian Sundays [week 10, ‘My Neighborhood’].

11 Mar

Continuing with my very personal Photo Project throughout this year, called 52 Bolivian Sundays, sharing images that represent this beautiful country, its traditions, cultural events and neat places/things to do. 

For this week, pairing with the Daily Post inspiration, “My Neighborhood“, we will ‘stroll’ through a few images that are so very familiar to us, and yet, a surprise every single day, due to the unpredictable weather, so characteristic to the city of La Paz, the place we’ll be calling ‘home’ for the next year and a half… 

Our morning greeting… the nostalgic design of the streets, the contrast between the cobblestones and the always green foliage covering the house walls…

And what we spot when looking up to the sky: the ‘chaotic and intricate’ arrange displayed by the electric cables, against the peaceful tree covers and the white clouds…

What about different views from a popular playground? Trying to show the intriguing ways a child would perceive its surroundings… the metal structures, the reddish mountains in the background, the memories of our childhood brought by the set of swings, and the majestic palm trees…


A walk towards the kids school leads to a nice quaint restaurant, with an inviting outdoors patio…


And finally, a roof top, like many around our neighborhood, after one of the many 15-minutes hail showers, leaving the tiles covered with tiny pieces of ice… Don’t like the weather? Just wait a few minutes, and a new scenario will arrive at your ‘Paceña‘ neighborhood… 😮



So many details to look forward to! Find here, more impressions from other bloggers… Thank you all for sharing! ♥

    Lovely to see the view of your neighbourhood from a child’s eye. When my son was about 5 he took an amazing photo of a cyclist whizzing past on the walking track. It was perfectly in frame and absolutely still – of course he was just quick and at the right level to get a shot a professional photographer would have had to crouch and wait for.

      Thank you for your kind words! At the end, I was the one taking the shots, but going ‘down at their level’, to get a real perspective about their surroundings, and to help me understand the way they see and perceive their ‘realities’… thank you very much for taking time to come by and read through this posting – much appreciated! Greetings from La Paz! 😮

    congrats for arriving at no. 10 of your Sunday posts!
    P.S.: nice round table community …

      Thank you, Thank you! Will keep on going with the Photo Project – thanks for the support! About the round table community, it was an ‘experiment’, to have other bloggers linked here – but I don’t think I’ll be doing that again… some people do not feel very comfortable being ‘linked’ to someone else’s blog postings… Oh, well, gotta respect that, right? But thanks for the continuous support – always good to receive positive feedback! 😮
