“There’s always room for a story that can transport people to another place.”
As I was thinking about this week’s ROOM challenge, I had several ideas about how to approach it. So why not let you, the reader, decide which is the most appropriate? First, the capture above, shot several years ago in Cambodia. Seated in a small room amongst the beautiful ruins of Angkor Wat, I came across this pensive bride. I thought she looked a bit sad for a person about to have one of the happiest days of her life. Here’s hoping she was pondering some small detail of the day, rather than wondering about her upcoming commitment. No room for doubt on one’s wedding day, is there?!
“Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable.”
My second thought was this capture, taken in the vast, incredibly beautiful wilderness of Patagonia. Here, we found ourselves in a place where there wasn’t a whisper of civilization as far as the eye could see. Miles upon miles of room to roam. I remember thinking that if I were a horse, this is exactly where I’d want to be 🙂
“Closed in a room, my imagination becomes the universe, and the rest of the world is missing out.”
Finally this shot, from our visit to Vietnam. On our way to spend the night on a sailing ship on glorious Ha Long Bay, we passed these bizarre one-room shacks sitting on stilts on the water. We learned they were fishing huts, each manned by a single fisherman working the local waters. And here I thought the aliens had finally landed 🙂
So what do you think – which of the three “rooms” is your preferred response and why?
Oh, and one more thing……..Happy Anniversary to me! WordPress happily reminded me that I started Travels and Trifles exactly two years ago this week. Time flies doesn’t it?!
