Favorite Places

Variations on a Theme: Places

This week’s WordPress challenge asks us to identify a favorite place to which we return when we can. Frank’s Tuesday Photo Challenge, at Dutch Goes the Photo, also wants us to identify favorite places. I don’t have a specific favorite place I can select.  I have moved around the US during my working career, and I don’t return to many of the places I visit when I travel. So I have selected some of my favorite buildings and monuments to which I would return if I could. Architecture does speak to me.

Color Your World 2018: 120 Days of Crayola – Outer Space

Outer Space Pharaoh

Ancient Egyptian King Mentuhotep II, who initiated the Middle Kingdom when he reunified upper and lower Egypt. He ruled from c. 2061–2010 BCE. Mentuhotep is said to be one of the first pharaohs deified while still living. The dark color of his skin and the crossed arms are references to Horus, the Egyptian god of death, fertility and resurrection.  The painted sandstone statue is in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, Egypt.

WPC and Thursday’s Special: 2017 Photos

2017 Retrospective

 

I track my year and my travels by the photos I post. Generally, I try to use recent photos for each new post or challenge. These are some of my favorites from 2017, which took me to Cuba, Spain, Alaska, South Dakota, New York, the Grand Canyon in Arizona, Egypt, France, and Switzerland. It was a very good year.
