I’m interested to know what you think about medical photography – specifically, taking pictures of interesting anomalies or cool surgeries. I know that a lot of doctors have personal collections of photos that they keep to… reflect on, I suppose? Use for presentations? Smart phones have made it easier and opened a new can ofContinue reading “Medical Photography: Do or Don’t (+POLL)”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Myanmar In My Eye
This week’s challenge with The Daily Post is titled The World Through Your Eyes. Myanmar was a fantastic country. Really like no place you’ve ever been; nothing like the rest of Asia. We were walking through a residential street (not lost, just strolling) and the sense of community in this street was strong. Everyone wasContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Myanmar In My Eye”
Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape
I took this picture at Elmina Castle in Cape Coast, Ghana, during my visit there with Semester at Sea in April this year. We learned about the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade in high school history class, and it was incredibly educational to visit this castle in the flesh. It was harrowing too. What a dark timeContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape”
Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above (Floating Market, Vietnam)
It is the eve of my examinations, and I have been back in South Africa for exactly a week. It has been incredibly difficult to focus on studying. Fortunately I don’t start with the most difficult subject (which is not to say that I am not incredibly nervous). Anyway, taking a break, this week’s themeContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above (Floating Market, Vietnam)”
Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture
Two photo posts in a row! This week’s photo challenge with The Daily Post is about culture. YAY! I have seen a LOT of that these past four months. The most beautiful thing about culture and travel is not just learning to celebrate differences… but learning to appreciate what makes us the same. There wasContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture”
Weekly Photo Challenge: Up
This week’s photo challenge (which expires soon!) with The Daily Post is titled “Up”. [Let the record state that I love that movie.] I have been sailing around the world for 106 days. Today we disembarked the ship. I feel that in these 106 days, I have looked to the sky more often than not.Continue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Up”
Weekly Photo Challenge: Change
These large Chinese fishing nets in Fort Cochin, Kerala, India, seem to be riding the wave of change.
Weekly Photo Challenge: Sailing to the Future
This week’s weekly photo challenge with The Daily Post looks to the future. In my immediate future is touching on home base! In fact, right now we are sailing past the East Coast of South Africa, and just a few hours I was giddily staring at the lights of Durban’s coastline. I even have cellContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Sailing to the Future”
Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise!
It was Christmas! I love this holiday. And now Christmas is technically over, but it’s still in the air and our tree is still shining, and I’m still on a Christmassy high. Here are some pictures of the surprises of Christmas Eve (which is when we open our gifts), as prompted by The Daily Post.
Thankful, Semester at Sea and the Weekly Photo Challenge
I’m linking this up with The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge. The theme this week is is Thankful. As I mentioned before, we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in South Africa. Nevertheless, I’ve attended a couple of Thanksgiving dinners before and I love the idea of some good gratefulness. I am inclined to become a little whiny.Continue reading “Thankful, Semester at Sea and the Weekly Photo Challenge”
