The DP’s theme for last week is Half and Half.
Photographers talk about the rule of thirds.
This week, I will continue sharing some pictures which are half / half.
The picture was taken on the way from Latvia to Lithuania.
This week’s DP photo challenge is Symbol.
A symbol is an object that represents, stands for or suggests an idea, visual image, belief, action or material entity. Symbols take the form of words, sounds, gestures or visual images and are used to convey ideas and beliefs.
This week, I will be showing some symbols.
Here are some crosses as captured in the Baltic countries.
I would say the Baltic countries are a place where one can find some interesting doors.
Here is an example, without the soldiers, this door looks plain and the picture has few colors.
The soldiers, especially the middle one, add to the picture!
Don’t ask me where about is this door in the Baltic.
However, this must be one of the most interesting doors I have seen.
It is colorful with contrasting colors, with a spider, a chain, a hand sticking out waiting to be shaken.

Serenity is everywhere. Basically, you will find it when your heart is prepared for it.
Here are a couple of pictures taken earlier in the Baltic.
On the other picture, it was taken in a waterway within a garden.
The composition looks simple but it looks so peaceful.
Please enjoy :-)
The Hill of Crosses is a site of pilgrimage about 12 km north of the city of Šiauliai, in northern Lithuania. The precise origin of the practice of leaving crosses on the hill is uncertain, but it is believed that the first crosses were placed on the former Jurgaičiai or Domantai hill fort after the 1831 Uprising.Over the centuries, not only crosses, but giant crucifixes, carvings of Lithuanian patriots, statues of the Virgin Mary and thousands of tiny effigies and rosaries have been brought here by Catholic pilgrims. The exact number of crosses is unknown, but estimates put it at about 55,000 in 1990 and 100,000 in 2006.
To be honest, I didn’t feel very pleasant when I walked over the hill from one end to the other and back.
Nevertheless, I am happy to share this image which maybe the best picture took over there.
