Photo Journal

Photo Journal – Travel Theme: Red

I am excited to join Ailsa (of Where’s My Backpack) Travel Theme for the Week as it features the color Redwhich used to be my favorite color when I was much younger.

Helsinki, Finland

I was just in Finland a week ago to present two papers at a Music Conference in Sibelius Academy. I was glad to have discovered this lovely Chinese restaurant which gave me my first decent meal after I have just arrived in the city. The price is not too bad and it was comforting to see something familiar in a foreign land.

Singapore Botanical Garden

I would love to visit this place again. Sometimes I just get too wrapped up in routine that I fail to visit lovely places such as this one. We usually wait until we have house guests, then we have an excuse to go around the city and explore some more. We must do this more regularly.

San Francisco, USA

San Francisco remains one of my favorite cities in the US. I had a fun time visiting Haight and Castro streets while we were there. I love the reddish hue in this photo juxtaposed with the Villains sign in this establishment. I just feel that there is a sinister vibe to this picture.

I used this photo for the weekly photo challenge several weeks back when the theme was Unfocused. I felt that it deserves to be shared again as it is red, red, red. One of the roadway tunnels in San Francisco.

How about you, dear friends, what is your ‘red’ photo for this week’s travel theme?

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
