This week Sue’s dictionary fell open at the word WAITING. The following pictures were all taken in Cambodia:
parasols lying in wait for their next procession
What do people/animals/things wait for? what do they do while they’re waiting? What are you waiting for – pop over here to see what other people have found waiting a round the world.
The Weekly photo challenge has hosted a “Big” photo challenge in the past, but for this week’s challenge, they want us to consider not just the size of something, but also that special element: the “wow factor” of a scene or subject that makes a picture so stunning. That magical quality we’re always out looking for and so excited to capture with our cameras.

What ‘wowed’ you? people? architecture? a weird and wonderful plant? a painting? a landscape?
