Don’t you just love having a snoop in other people’s photo albums? I do, but it wouldn’t be fair, if I didn’t share some of my snapshots too, would it? So when Travel Supermarket asked bloggers to share their blue, green, red, yellow and white photos, I just had to join in. So *drum roll* here are my colourful snapshots:
Blue – This photo shows my favourite beach back at home in Germany – it’s along the coast line of the Baltic Sea on the peninsula Darss/Zingst. The water is so clear that you can see the sand underneath you and after a swim you can relax on the beach without hearing screaming children or noisy tourists. I could spend hours here listening to the waves crashing against the shore and the sea gulls shrieking.
Green – When I was little we spend many autumn afternoons wandering through forests and parks, picking mushrooms and watching deer graze. This snapshot was taken on one of many many walks and reminds me of my childhood as a true country pumpkin.
Red – This photo is over ten years old and was taken on a trip through Italy for my 18th birthday. I loved walking through the narrow alley ways of Florence to find the colourful and vibrant gem that is Ponte Vecchio, a Medival bridge across river Arno that is home to dozens of tiny jewellery shops.
White – The Berlin Wall was built in 1961 to divide East and West Germany and split the world into capitalists and socialists. It tore families apart, destroyed lives and stopped the citizens of Eastern Germany to fulfil their dreams. When the East German government announced on 9 November 1989 that all GDR citizens could visit West Germany and West Berlin, crowds of East Germans crossed and climbed onto the wall joined by the West German neighbours to celebrate freedom. Over the next weeks, the public chipped away parts of the wall and visitors from all over the world came to Berlin to leave their messages on the wall. The White Dove of Peace is a great symbol for Germany’s future as one country.
Yellow – The Empire State Building, the Eiffel Tower and the Pyramid of Giza all in one place? Well, not really, but if you can settle for the miniature version then Hamburg’s Miniature World is the place to go. You will see the sights of the world illuminated in the most vibrant colours, railway tracks and much much more and will have a truly amazing day for all the family!
If you would like to enter, you’ll find all info on the website at the top of this post, but be quick: The competition closes tomorrow. As I know these people love taking photos, I am tagging: Circus Queen, The Crazy Kitchen, Mummy Mishaps, Mammasaurus and The Mummy Adventure.
