The WordPress photo challenge for this week was enveloped. This one was a toughy for me. All I could come up with was taking photos of our wedding money envelopes from years ago but… they are still packed in boxes after our move.
Instead of going new, once again the archives sang their song and I found a few from Hawaii and good ol’ Thailand.
I love how this gigantic leaf seems to be slowly enveloped by the surrounding plant life.
This photo was taken at the max of my old point-and-shoot’s zoom. I don’t think it’s fantastic but I do like how the setting sun is getting a hug from the clouds. I also like how the distortion and graininess make the photo look dreamlike.
If you ever get the chance, visit the outstanding and inspiring Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii. Stay overnight so you have more time to explore and make the trek down to the ocean to see this incredible expanse of solid lava. And take your own silly photo like we did. You’ll be joining a massive club!
The lone Thai entry is from one of my favorite spots in Thailand, Tiger Cave Temple outside Krabi Town. I wonder how often these cloth wraps are changed.
If you did the photo challenge this week, how did you approach “enveloped”? What silly or fun shots have you taken over the years on any travels?
