We went to the beach yesterday, with the thought that we can allow ourselves to go someplaces beside on sundays, beeing our own boss. Of course pleasure was not the only reason, we were busy with finding sea urchins and other treasures too. On the way back we came across some wild donkey's, in the middle of the road. Untill mum could take out the camera they where already a little further away, but isn't this amazing?
I would love to see a picture you took, during your vacation or a road trip, only thing is, it has to be something special. Send me your picture and story behind the picture through Etsy's conversations or email!
ArtMind: ''It's not easy for me to choose a favorite picture as I have way too many of them! This is one of them, although I'm afraid of snails, I love this picture. They are beautiful animals, I only get itchy when I see the slimy trail they leave behind. :)''
SwiedeBie: ''It is taken in Ko Phi Phi Island, Thailand. My husband and I were on holiday, and there, I took interest in this particular shop that did Bamboo tattoos. What is the meaning? The name derives from the tool they use - Bamboo, for tattoo-ing. Some prisoners in Thailand use the bamboo (with seperate sharp pen like tip with a little hole that lets the ink runs through) and pigment inks to design and draw tattoos onto their fellow inmates, as the tattoo technical tools are banned in prisons. The artist who did the tattoo on my shoulder blade is a convict. It is not as painful as the usual machinery tattoo pen. He uses a technique called the prick and poke dot technique. Amazing with how meticulous and neat job he did.''
Kreativlink: ''The 400 years old olive tree we've visited in Cyprus. It may not be the oldest, nor the biggest olive tree that there is. But for me it's a very special one because after all the trees I've hugged already, there finally was one that hugged me :)''
Kraplap: ''Last year I made a trip with hubby and my dad to Friesland to see the places from my youth there. At the end of the trip we visited the graveyard where my Friesian grandparents are buried, because my dad keeps it clean twice a year. It was such a lovely peaceful quiet place with all these old graves and the old church, standing a little higher. Standing there I felt somehow my "Friesian" roots, more than in all the places from my youth we visited that day. They had changed too much or were very different as I remembered them. But this quiet place was there today just like it was 50 years ago. I loved it !''
Birribe: ''I have many lovely travel photos and memories. I found this solitude little house in Cambodja. We very visiting the floating village outside Siem reap. It´s a whole village built on pillars in the lake. This building was such a contrast to the other crowded parts. They told it´s a retreat for monks. It´s exciting thinking spending a time there just meditate.''
Jealousydesign: ''I could choose a photo from any of my vacations both from other countries and from here in Sweden but the place that is most special to me is where I live. Since we moved here this place is the most special for me. Have never felt so “home” anywhere before and I can never get tired of the nature around me…''
