Weekly Photo Challenge: From Every Angle: Geisha Doll

This week’s photo challenge theme was just perfect. When I came back from Japan, one of the souvenirs that I picked up for home was a spectacular Geisha doll. Unfortunately my limited financial constraints meant that I could only pick up a doll that was made in China but I still love her because she…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Today Was a Good Day

Of late the only posts I seem to be uploading on my blog are those of the weekly photo challenges. It’s not because of any lack of interest in writing but more because I’ve been caught up with something that leaves me with very little time and energy to work on the blog. This week’s…

The explosion and its aftereffects caused the deaths of more than a hundred thousand people. Looking at the cityscape of Hiroshima today, you would be hard pressed to believe that Hiroshima suffered such…

Another weekend draws to a close and yet another week begins. I hope all of you have a great and productive week! May you be one step closer to achieving your goals and dreams!

Weekly Photo Challenge, Inspiration

So this week’s challenge asks us to post a photograph about something that inspires us. That is such a hard ask in my opinion. How do I encapsulate all the different things that inspire me into one single photograph? It’s impossible! And so I settled down to posting something that represents many things that I…
