Travel Themes

I’m making mini-posts of these 9 chosen Travel Themes into a post. I overkilled some of these images, and I loaded it with clichés. 🙂


I love walking outside and see the children play.

I actually see myself in them. Why? When they play outside, it reminds me that there’s more out there than the tube, video games, cellphone, or the comfort of our room.

PLAY


 

It’s awaken by the wandering eyes, of curious minds, and with wild imaginations.

Statues are full of life.

STATUES


 

It’s amazing to think how architecture can so define a place.

Did you know Frank Gehry failed an art class? Perhaps it’s because of his unconventional methods and weird ways of viewing things.

ARCHITECTURE


A lot of people leave their own hometown to come L.A. trying to fulfill their dreams in having a shot to fame. Their journey is not easy. A lot of these aspirations started with side jobs like waiting tables. Some only got their five minutes being extra, ending up in reality shows, or forgettable characters in one TV episode. Good thing Los Angeles has a lot to offer with these people with potentials and good ambitions. Of course, some shoot their way to stardom.

That’s a thing with possibilities, it’s daunting but exciting at the same time.

POSSIBILITIES


 

Frailty can be a very beautiful thing. It’s actually an attractive quality. Just like a flower, for instance.

But you should watch out, delicateness can be deceiving. It can be tricky. When you provoke it, it might be storing up power, come up strong and bite you in the back!

DELICATE

MEETING PLACES

Meet me at a cliff somewhere, on a roof of an abandoned building, or suspended in the air in a balloon . Wherever is more secluded. I don’t care how inappropiate the location is. just wherever you feel more secure.


Unpredictability is fun. It makes life exciting. It’s when you see things in the most unexpected places.

Or when you find beauty and mystery in the most unlikely places.

UNEXPECTED


The views are better when you’re on top.

But I’m a man who thrives on challenges. I love the moments when I’m looking forward and up to achieve my goals.

For when I achieve greatness, reach a certain height, meet a successful goal, at times, I just don’t know what to do with it. It’s hard to figure out what’s next. I don’t blame people for having too much ambition and greed. No one should judge me if I want to achieve things just within my reach.

HEIGHTS


 

When darkness befalls …

One light can warm a heart. Enlightenment. One light can cure a troubled mind. Clarity. One light can bring closure. Vision. One light can guide a lost soul.

ILLUMINATION

One light can lit up someone’s entire world.
 


FEATURED BLOG

I’ll go ahead and feature the brain behind this Travel Theme operation, Where’s my backpack?. See if you can take on Ailsa’s weekly challenges.

  1. I love the pics of the sculptures, I recently got back from Florence and it just brought a lot of memories of a great trip. The hummingbird was impressive it is dificult to catch them in action and the tightrope cat is just WoW! Thanks

  2. They are all beautiful photos. I do not know which to choose. The statues were well captured and your photo for Delicate is beautiful and tender. The Meeting Place photo contrasts our smallness with the grandeur of nature. And last, the violinist with light shining on his face is very poetic. 🙂 Now, I remember, one of the prompts I am following has violinist and metronome in the list. If I manage to write a piece about a violinist, may I use your photo as inspiration source? Needless to say, photo credit will be given to you. 🙂 I did not plan on borrowing anything when I dropped by. It just came to me after I browsed all of the pictures. Thank you very much, Rommel.

  3. Love the way you’ve put this post together Rommel . Surprising how many people labelled as ‘failures’ go on to achieve great things !
    Meeting Places I like very much .

    • Success is overrated. 😀 Especially with sports, people take it so seriously. My surrounding is so gungho in the idea of defeat they can’t accept.

  4. I enjoyed reading this post so much! Lovely photos and I agree — “Unpredictability is fun. It makes life exciting. It’s when you see things in the most unexpected places.” 🙂

  5. What a great post Rommel…. very enjoyable. That photo with the hummingbird is wonderful. Those little guys are so difficult to capture. Well done 🙂

  6. I think this is one of my favorite posts, Rommel! Great themes and photos to go with them. I’m having a terrible time trying to pick favorites. I know one is the boy in snow for Play, the hummingbird, the ocean and your feet hanging over the ledge. See, I couldn’t just stop with one. They’re all great! 🙂

  7. Hi, Rom!

    As I was taking a look at each of the photos, I found myself in a place that reifies both the museum and an ambient art gallery “somewhere”.

    The first two photos suck the air out of me in a good sense of course. The rest were like the songs in my folder titled “Piloerection/Frisson”.

    Never felt this awe that’s all over me, Rom. The travel blogger I used to admire in you has now transformed into a world-class photographer. And I meant that.

  9. What an amazing collection of images, Rommel! I hardly know where to start. Love that Walt Disney building and at the other extreme the gently glowing candle. What a lot of work! And by what cunning and trickery did you make the image with your feet on? 🙂 🙂 Brilliant!

  10. OMG!! What a travel theme feast, Rommel! I called you the King, and that was a couple of years. Even better now. Awesome!!!
    I’m in love with your flower shot and the bird… Let them bite me in the back! 😀

    • Thank you, thank, thank you. What a tribute you gave on that post. By the way, the success on your blog … it was all you and your alway awesome pics, Amy.

  11. A fabulous compilation of some of your best shots Rommel! And your writing is magical! Especially loved your description of ‘possibilities’ and of course “One Light’!. Great job 🙂
