So hard to choose between pictures for this weeks Daily Post photo challenge so I’ve given you a selection. Let me know which you like best!! The prompt is ‘Afloat’:
Ok, this first one is a little self-indulgent. I didn’t take the picture either….’cos yes, that’s me up there, floating about, light as a feather, above the beautiful blue sea off the coast of Marmaris, Turkey. I was particularly chuffed with the smiley face parachute! 😉
This next one is of the harbour at Kovalam, Kerala, India. When you see these hundreds of fishing boats out at night with their lanterns lit, it looks like the stars have fallen from the sky and are bobbing about on the water.
These next three were all taken on the backwaters of Kerala.
We were astonished by the ‘school buses’ like the one below that were crammed alarmingly with chattering children on their way home!
It was very atmospheric in the deep dark midst of the backwaters!
But at least when you eventually surfaced into the open, you could get a snack from a floating restaurant!
Oh I nearly forgot my paper boat made with my own fair hands especially for this challenge. The photo’s weren’t as stunningly wonderful or even half as interesting as I’d imagined,but hey ho, I’m sharing anyway!!
Perfect choices! especially floating down the river 🙂
Thanks Andy, glad you liked them!
I like that you hand-crafted a boat just for this!
To be honest, it wasn’t exactly a work of art…though it didn’t sink!!
nice! my favourite is the boat amongst the palms…
It was a magical place. It was only an old plastic boat, but still managed to look picturesque in that setting!
I enjoyed them all, but that smiley parachute won my heart.
Oh thanks Janet. I just knew I had to have a go when I saw that parachute!!
Very nice selection
very nice, especially the fishing boats.
Thanks Bipasha, I don’t think the pic quite captures just how many of them there were! It was a breathtaking sight 😀
