Weekly Photo Challenge: On the Way (2)

This week’s DP photo challenge is On the Way.

I have a series of photos here which were passed to me by my friend.

They illustrate what you may see while travelling in China.image012

To me, they look a bit weird and some of them funny.

As I am not able to find out the source of these photos, I am unable to give proper credit to the photographers.

I would be happy to remove the photo and delete the post if required by the original photographer.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken ( Ephesus 3 )

Ephesus, Turkey is the place where you can find all these broken pieces.

Pieces that cannot really be put back together to give you the complete thing.CIMG0218

But still, it is better than letting these pieces lying on the ground as a ruin.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken ( Houses at Dubrovnik )

< 2 photos >

I like the houses at Dubrovnik – all of them having terracotta roofs, quite uniform albeit a bit cluttered together.

In our walk on the walls of Dubrovnik, we came across some old and broken buildings – which presumably were damaged in the Civil War of the last century.DSCF0902

For reasons unknown to me, they were not rebuilt.

I took the opportunity of photographing them, as a reminder of how ugly a civil war can be.DSCF0901

One photo shows the close up view while the other one gives a general idea of the setting.

Please enjoy 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken (Angkor 2)

Examples of Broken is abundant at Angkor Wat, Cambodia.

Here is a picture which needs no explanation.DSC_0181

Broken pieces of the ancient structures are found everywhere.

This is a paradise for photographers – no matter where you point your camera, you won’t be disappointed.

Weekly photo Challenge: Broken ( Ephesus 1)

Hadrian Temple, Ephesus, Turkey

CIMG0224

The following in italics is extracted from Virtual Tourist:

This is one of the best preserved and most beautiful structures on Curetes Street. It was built before 138 AD by P. Quintilius and was dedicated to Emperor Hadrian, who came to visit the city from Athens in 128 AD. The facade of the temple has four Corinthian columns supporting a curved arch, in the middle of which contains a relief of Tyche, goddess of victory. The side columns are square. The pedestals with inscriptions in front of the temple, are the bases for the statues of the emperors between 293-305 AD – Diocletian, Maximian, Constantius I, and Galerius; the originals of the statues have not been found.

This is one of the best places I have visited in Turkey; I will share more in my later posts.
