I have not been able to take all that many photos lately, but I have been editing my old photos. This month I am going to be posting those, I hope you like them, I found new views to them as they have been out of sight, out of mind for a while.
My first one is from India, Goa. Let this entry lead us to a trip of memories. Welcome to my colorful memories from my travels.
I like so many of us to love travel, near or far. Here are photos from a trip I took to India – Goa. Even thought it is more a tourist place than many others, the reality and the poverty was a shock to me. The colors and smells left and lasting imprint into my memory. Here are the photos I chose to this WPC PHOTO CHALLENGE Wanderlust. May the last one be the main photo, a little boy digging a ditch – and not for fun, still happily waving his hand with smile on his face.
This is going to be my last post about my trip, most like all are bored of them by now. BUT every now and them there might be a picture from here and there.
This is the largest and the best-preserved Portuguese bastion in Goa and was built in 1609-12, to control the entry into the river Mandovi and to protect Old Goa from potential enemy attacks.
This place is located close to Miramar beach in Panaji . Lanes leading to this place are narrow and under construction. Our driver took us through the locals way. This place has a nice promenade right into the sea and there are many shops on one side selling local handicrafts, clothes and snacks. the other tourists were mainly locals. We climbed up the stairs to the top and enjoy a great view of the vast Arabian sea in front.
Panjim is India’s smallest capital city and was occupied by the Portuguese for over 450 years.
This old district or latin quarter has a completely different atmosphere from the hustle and bustle of the main city, with its Mediterranean appearance, narrow streets and overhanging balconies of the ancient Portuguese style houses.
This house was next to the St. Augustine Ruins, and it spoke out to me, I found this house so appealing even though it is run down, maybe that is half of the appeal.
We spotted several Royal Enfield motorbikes some in better shape than others
as we slided smoothly on the river that is known for it crocodile we kept lookeng at the river banks to see on an hopefully capture on. We saw three, but only one I was able o get on film. Not the best of picture, still. As we were loooking for the crocodiles, I did take lots of nice green shots of trees and reflections. well at least I like to think so…
I am still on the river, my posting and editing is so slow, but then again I am in no hurry and I hope you willing look at my impression of Goa. The river – obviously had lots of boats there. Fishermen doing there jobs, us tourists enjoying the beauty of the moment.
As you can assume as we are on the river, there is bound to be boats of all kinds there, and I took photos of them. I loved how the morning light showed beautiful color reflections on the water
