This weeks Lens-Artist challenge was a hard one for me!! I had to dig pretty deep to find some images in various Capital cities through-out the world (that I haven’t somehow already shared). I plucked a handful out of the archives that I am pretty happy with.
Thank you Viveka at My Guilty Pleasures for the fun challenge! You can take a gander at her page and find links to other awesome participants.
One of my favorite trips of last year was to London. Our first day there, I made Sean do a 10 mile death march in the city. We spent a good chunk of that day in Shoreditch. I say death march only because it was the day we landed and I was trying to kick jet-lag as soon as possible. It was hard plowing through! We were walking down Brick Lane and I happened to see this collage of creativity on this wall. If you look closely, there are all kinds of interesting things here (besides the woman protruding out of the brick!)
The image below was taken in Tokyo 7 or so years ago. I was so enamored with the fashion there. We had just come back from a hiking trip in Bhutan so I felt like a schlep in the middle of what is obviously one of the fashion capitals of the world. I saw this adorable girl with her mish-mash of clothing selections. If I tried to replicate this, I would just look like an A-#1 dork. I thought she was fantastic!
Ah Havana, Cuba…..I love this city. A couple of friends of mine and I wandered around Havana for an entire day on our own photo-shoot – I must have taken 1,000’s of images. The shot below was one of my favorites of the trip. It shows the the perfection of the old cars and the not so perfect living conditions of many in the city.
Prior to our 2 week trek through Patagonia, we spent a couple of days in Buenos Aires, Argentina. There are MANY wonderful parts to this city, but my favorite is Palermo SOHO, which is where this was taken. The colors and the line of the street pulled me in.
In Oslo, Norway, we came across these students taking a public poll about which religion was most helpful. You can see the stats on the bottom right – they were on their 4th day. Super interesting social experiment if you ask me!
Enjoy the weekend!
