Not that way — Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – April 13, 2018

This is our entry in Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – April 13, 2018.

While walking along a marked trail in Huntley Meadows Park in Alexandria, Virginia, we came across a sign:

MAINTENANCE ROAD

INFORMAL TRAIL

This path is not recognized nor maintained by park staff. If you choose to use it, proceed with caution. The path may be uneven, wet, and difficult to follow.

We decided not to go that way.

Huntley Meadows Boardwalk — Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – March 23, 2018

This is our entry in Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – March 23, 2018 & Thursday Special Challenge.

Yesterday we went to Huntley Meadows Park in Alexandria, Virginia, to practice photography; we had not visited this park before. We followed a series of trails through the park, which is still a bit soggy from the recent snow.  We were amazed by the Heron Trail, which features a boardwalk through wetland, with its surface about two feet above the surface of the water for most of its length.  The photo was taken near the beginning of the boardwalk. The hikers ahead of us have chosen to go left at the first intersection.  We did, also; maybe we will chose to go to the right on our next visit.

This is our entry in Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge February 9, 2018.

Which way is outta here? This long-legged bird is striding toward Gregory Lake in Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka. It has decided to walk out of the picture as quickly as it can.

We found this sign on the door to a bathroom in Lisbon, Portugal. Sometimes it is hard for a tourist to understand exactly which way the locals are expecting us to behave.

Follow the wet footprints — Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – January 5, 2018

This is our entry in Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – January 5, 2018.

The makers of these wet footprints  went up the stairs shortly before we went down, although we did not meet them on their journey.  Clearly, one of them was unsure which way to go, since they corrected course halfway to the stairs.  They were probably headed for another ride down one of the Carnival Pride’s giant water slides on a cruise we took to celebrate a major wedding  anniversary.

This photo was taken on the cruise ship Carnival Pride out of Baltimore, Maryland, on December 26, 2012. Specs are:

Canon PowerShot SX40 HS, ISO 100, f/4, 1/400 sec, 4.3 mm

 

The Gate at Klong Mon Pumping Station — Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – August 18, 2017

This is our entry in Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – August 18, 2017.

This long-tail boat is carrying tourists through a canal off the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok, Thailand.  Entry to these canals, by boat and by increasingly brackish water that affects Bangkok’s tap water production,  is strictly regulated by the use of sluice gates that regularly close for a short period of time.  While a gate is closed, canal tour boats congregate on both sides. As soon as a gate opens, there is a mass exodus of boats from inside, followed by a more leisurely entry of boats that have been waiting patiently at the edge of the canal outside.

This boat has just exited through the barrier gate beneath the Klong Mon Pumping Station, and our boat is about to enter the canal through the same gate.
