In this week’s Travel Theme: Neutral Ailsa asks us to break out some neutral tones and create our own version of this week’s travel theme.

Travel Theme: Frame

Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is Frame. Here are some of mine.

Travel Theme: Trees

Happy Arbor Day! It seems very fitting that Ailsa, at Where’s My Backpack, chose Trees as this week’s travel theme. Here are some of my favorite trees.

1. Lantern-adorned tree. Venice Canals, Venice Beach. Los Angeles, CA._DSC0299-1_edited-1

2. Giant Fig Tree. Almost 100 years old, its house is a park in Beverly Hills, CA.DSC_0433_edited-1

3. Umbrella Tree, Ravello, Italy._DSC0294_edited-1

4. Australian Tea Tree. One of my favorites at Palisades Park, Santa Monica, CA._DSC1207_edited-1

5. Rosewood Tree. This huge beauty from S. Africa lives in our backyard here in LA, dwarfing everything around it.DSC_0197_edited-1

Weekly Photo Challenge: Early Bird

This week’s challenge is Early Bird. That’s a difficult one for me because I’m always late so the whole concept of early bird escapes me. I am also a night owl, who can never bring myself to wake up in time to see the sunrise. Unless I’m jet lagged, of course, which was the case when I took these photographs from my hotel room balcony in Ravello, Italy.
