LENS-ARTISTS PHOTO CHALLENGE #159 – POSTCARDS

This week, Ana (ANVICA’S GALLERY) leads LAPC — Postcards. I’ve selected a few images of my favorite places for Ana’s theme.

The image below will always reminds me the turquoise and peaceful lake and soaring mountain backdrop. The red canoe slowly glided to this spot, and my camera was ready. This would be my postcard of Lake Louise.

Ayuthaya, Thailand was once called the “Pearl of the East”.Thirty-three kings of various dynasties build hundreds of temples and thousands of images of Buddha. I’d choose this one as a postcard:

“Temple of the Golden Pavilion” is one of the most popular buildings in Kyoto. Gold leaf was used to cover the second and third floors of the temple. It is real gold manufactured through the art called “gold beating”, which is the ancient hand-made method of pounding gold (of different karats and of darker or lighter shades of gold) into a whole panel of thin metal. My postcard from Kyoto.

Vernazza, Italy  is one of the five towns that make up the Cinque Terre. This is a beautiful scene of Vernazza seen from the Azure Trail, a picturesque spot before you hike down to the town.

Ana encourages us to join her postcards theme, “You can show us some of your pictures that you would send as postcards to someone you love. Or you can simply share with us images of your favorite places.”Click here to enjoy Ana’s fabulous photos and read about the history of postcard. We hope you’ll Join us.

Next week, Patti will host LAPC #160: Your Inspiration, which can be a place, a subject, a person, a book–just about anything that inspires you.
