Travel Theme: Up

The travel theme of the week over at Where’s My Backpack? is “up”. At first I wasn’t too sure if I had any photos that conveyed that viewpoint, but surprisingly I did have a few! I can’t wait for the cold weather to get a little bit warmer here so I can head outside and take some new photos.

  1. Love the “up” viewpoint, did it with vegetables against the blue sky, one of my fav photos! Love your blog.

    • Thanks for the compliment 🙂 I really like the photo you mentioned – your pea pod against the blue sky makes me crave summertime! I think your take on the “January Blues” is awesome – but I think my favorite photo from that set are the robin’s eggs.

Let me know what you think!
