Finding A Few Good Things Around The World: Photo Series

A few days ago the organizers of the weekly photo sharing event #FriFotos announced that they were discontinuing this Twitter tradition of five-years. Almost every week for those five years I have participated, using the new weekly themes as a creative motivator to create new and (I hope) interesting photo series. I probably will continue doing a weekly photo series, finding inspiration somewhere else, but in the mean time I want to join everyone else in thanking the organizers for five amazing years. The last three weekly themes have been announced, each with a nod towards the end of this popular event. This week it’s GOOD THINGS, as in all good things must come to an end. Rather than take a melancholy approach though, I want to share some special moments around the world, instances where I found my own ‘good things’ whether it was an amazing meal or a wonderful natural sight, these all mean a lot to me and show how it’s really the small things that make the most to us when we travel.

    The beauty is like candy for visions.

    These are all definitely good things. I think I like the Machu Picchu one the best because the llama (is that what that is?) seems to be looking at you saying, can you believe this view?!

    Very good things, indeed. And for some reason, it’s funny to me that the television is on in the InterContinental Presidential Suite – as if any more visual stimulation is needed 🙂 Lovely photos, Matt!
