there are so many motorcyclists in Hanoi that it would be difficult not to capture at least one of them in motion! Invariably they zoom into your field of view just as you depress the shutter ….
judging by the size of the pot he’s carrying, this lad is moving in slow motion, maybe?
where food is being sold or prepared there is always motion

Ailsa reminded some/informed some that 30 March is ‘take a walk in the park’ day. I think this is a wonderful idea but sadly don’t think I’ll get the chance to do that. Instead I’m sharing some of my photos of the great outdoors.
Vietnam’s eerily atmospheric Halong Bay
Lake Koycegiz, Turkey
lavender fields in Provence
my all-time favourite outdoors – Oare valley in north Devon, UK
a small bundle of energy
motorised energy with a wonderful smile
food, source of energy
how much energy do you think is required to carry this round on your shoulders all day?
the energy of light and fire at Hoi-An’s monthly lantern festival
What forms of energy did you harness for Ailsa’s challenge?
the river at Fontaine de Vaucluse in Provence, France
Luxembourg’s annual street art animation
kids at Hoi An, Vietnam
Did you share any photos of the colour ‘seafoam‘ this week?

Ed said “For this challenge either intentionally photograph power lines or maybe you have a great pic that was ruined by power lines. I have both.. ;-)” I do too 🙂
power lines got in the way of this shot of tea plantations in Sri Lanka
more power lines in Sr Lanka
some crazy wiring in Hanoi
Many people visiting Vietnam head up to Halong Bay for what they hope will be the trip of a lifetime around Halong Bay. We went in early March and met with grey skies, rain and wind. Although I have rendered this photo in black and white it is not so far from the original colours that we saw

this is actually a colour photo of an early stormy morning in Alanya, Turkey
