A photo that takes my breath away
|Near Quorn, outback South Australia|
A photo that makes me laugh or smile
I had many, many funny days in Japan, but this was one of the highlights - when friends took me "fishing". You can see one row of rocks in the "river" behind me, and there was another just to the right of the picture, and when we arrived, the staff emptied a bucket of fish into our section of the "river", ready for us to catch! So, as you can imagine, satisfaction was guaranteed!
A photo that makes me dream
This is the view of the Croatian coast near the town of Razanj - a place I stayed one summer with some Slovak friends. We could slip off the back porch of the house into the warm sea and it was perfect. I definitely dream of returning for another Croatian summer - perhaps throwing some sailing in to the mix?
A photo that makes me think
This drawing was part of a collection on display at the War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The whole exhibition really made me think - about the current generation of Vietnamese, about the generations of Vietnamese (and Australians) from the Vietnam War, and about how I really should know more.
A photo that makes my mouth water
Brunetti in Melbourne is famous for its amazing cakes and pastries and (according to my stomach) that fame is very well-deserved. On my first visit I shared a plate of delicious sweet encounters with a friend and I can still taste them - SO good!
A photo that tells a story
It's a long story, the story this photo tells, but I'll give you a summary: my sister (left) and her husband (middle) spent their honeymoon travelling Europe with me and we ended up in Bratislava on New Year's Eve, staying with my great Slovak friends Tatiana and her son Martin (right). And New Year's Eve meant building their first ever snowman ... well actually, a snow-woman. One of my most memorable New Year's Eve celebrations!
A photo that I am most proud of (aka my worthy of National Geographic shot)
I'm not the photographer of the family, but I haven't cheated by using one of my husband's pictures - this is not in any way NG-worthy but it does make me feel happy and relaxed because it was taken at Rottnest Island, a place I always enjoy visiting.
