The trip to the Baltic countries is memorable.
Estonia seems to be somewhat different from Latvia and Lithuania.
However, I have totally mixed up the names of the places I visited in Latvia and Lithuania.
The only place I have very clear memory is the Trakai castle – a beautiful castle by the Lake Galve.
This is the most fairy tale like castle I have ever visited!
Here are a couple of photos taken in Lithuania.
The common elements are the boat with sail, lake and great sky.
One has got lovely clouds too.
Both look incredibly harmonious.
Hope you enjoy them!
There are so many things around us that remind us time is passing by, sometimes, too quickly.
This wall at Lithuania reminds me that once it was newly constructed and painted.
With the passage of time, the wall deteriorated.
The paint came off, exposing the under-layers of plaster and down to the bare wall.
The windows became distorted as well.
The flowers give it a contrast, adding a bit of beauty to the aged wall.
The DP’s theme for last week is Half and Half.
Photographers talk about the rule of thirds.
Taking pictures half / half is usually not recommended.
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.
The crosses are probably the most recognizable symbol throughout the world.
Here are some crosses as captured in the Baltic countries.
I have been taking forever about doors.
Hope this doesn’t bore you.
This is my last post on Door of the DP theme; so I won’t continue forever.
Pardon me, again, this is door captured in the Baltic.
Hope you like it!
I would say the Baltic countries are a place where one can find some interesting doors.
Sometimes, the door itself may not be all that special but what happens near the door is all the more interesting.
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!
