Travel Theme: Walls

I take pictures of walls. A lot.

I’m not exactly sure where my photographic fascination with walls stems from but I certainly had a plethora of images to pick from for this week’s travel theme from Where’s My Backpack?

I eventually settled on some shots from the wonderfully weird city of Portland, Oregon. From what I observed when I was there last year, Portlandians are an artistic and kooky bunch and walls seemed to be the medium of choice for self-expression. The first photo says it all really…

Travel Theme: Up

I’ve recently stumbled across a great blog called Where’s my backpack? that offers up a weekly travel photography challenge.

For this week’s theme “up” I’ve picked out a few images from a trip to Nice, France that I took in October 2011 to celebrate my 30th birthday. When I wasn’t eating French pastries and drinking wine, I was gazing up at the stunning architecture – so ornate, distinguished and chic…so French.

I hope you enjoy the selection!
