The Changing Seasons: January 2018

Following  Zimmerbitch is an eye-opening experience: Su’s photography is spectacular and her insights astute.  She has recently taken over the curation of The Changing Seasons, a monthly blogging event that celebrates the changes in our world throughout the year.  This past December, my 30-Day Challenge was to take a Photo-a-Day.  I had so much fun thinking & reflecting on the month through photos so when I saw Su’s contribution to The Changing Seasons, I just had to join in!

These photos from our Family Vacation in Bangkok are also my contribution to Daily Post’ Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations on a Theme

 

Other highlights this month include:

  • quest for a healthier pancake: I now have several versions I enjoy
  • 10K Run for Hope: dedicated to those who have had and/or continue to suffer from cancer
  • week of cool, wet weather: our very own Singaporean winter! I think it actually dropped to 22 degrees centigrade at some point!

If you are inspired to join in, here are the guidelines for The Changing Seasons

The Changing Seasons Version One (photographic):

  • Each month, post 5-20 photos in a gallery that you feel represent your month
  • Don’t use photos from your archive. Only new shots.
  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons so that others can find them

The Changing Seasons Version Two (you choose the format):

  • Each month, post a photo, recipe, painting, drawing, video, whatever that you feel says something about your month
  • Don’t use archive stuff. Only new material!
  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons so others can find them.

  1. Ooooh those pancakes jumped out at me! I must give those a try. That mango looks terrific too! That lotus pond is BREATHTAKING! You always capture such beautiful parts and moments in our world ❤ Thank you for sharing!

  2. What a very lovely post! The Mango, crispy oyster omelette and pancakes look all soooo delicious! And wow – 22 degrees Celsius, you’re sure you don’t need a scarf and gloves now? 😉 What a winter! It’s been lovely seeing your month in this challenge! I’m taking part in it too for the first time. 😊

  3. Your photos are beautiful!! I had a cycling accident 2 years ago that nixed a plan to go to Thailand on a cycling vacation. Whenever I see photos from there, I feel like I have unfinished business to resolve. Someday, I hope … and I’ll be sure to look up the mango sticky rice 🙂

    However, it was the photo of “Women in the Next Three Decades” that caught my eye the most. Ouch – not exactly complimentary!!

    1. Eeeeks! Hope you are all recovered from the accident, and that you get to go to Thailand soon.

      You’re right about the sculpture, but I just love the voluptuousness of these exaggerated forms, just like Botero. I find them so endearing, in their wild abandonment!

        1. Am glad to hear you are all better! I hear you about effortless trips – I am basically a very chill traveller; I spend more time relaxing than anything else, and my favourite activity is running through various places of interest just to soak in the atmosphere, preferably before it gets crowded.

          1. That sounds like my style too. I’m not a huge fan of museums – I just don’t have the attention span. I find I spend more time looking at the building architecture, the layout of the displays, and the people looking at them, than the actual displays themselves.

          2. I’ve been to places that give you a time limit – usually an hour or less – with a sticker stating your required exit time. Those actually work for me – no ‘guilt’ 😉
