Travel Photos Closeup

Last week I published some closeups of Nature. Today I have found some closeups of objects made, or arranged by people, that seem to reflect a place.

This is my contribution to Travel Photo Thursday, sponsored by Nancie at Budget Travelers Sandbox.  I encourage you to click over there and see photos from around the world.

All of the photos in this photo essay belong to me, and I appreciate your respect for my copyright.

  1. The net mending thread brought sweet memories for me. I grew up around the Great Lakes and know many commercial fishermen. They work hard, and often in harsh weather. Wonderful images – thanks!

  2. Hi Vera,
    Interesting collection of subjects. The embroidered broom is fascinating. It’s the prettiest broom i have seen. The design of the pottery is so unique. The shot of wood shaving is interesting. I don’t think a lot of people would think of shooting them, but your image make them look like some kind of abstract artwork.

    1. Alas, Nancie and Leigh, the embroidered broom was not for sale. It was a 19th-century craft on display at the museum. But the pottery is really the best souvenir (if hard to carry) from Siphnos. A longtime tradition of Siphnian potters to make the everyday cookware for all the surrounding islands, has spawned all kinds of creative decorative as well as old-fashioned pottery. See my article on my writer’s website.

    1. Don’t you need a personal secretary, all expenses paid of course, when you go to Greece? Ahhh, spring in Greece! And EASTER at that!

  3. Love your photos, Vera. The wood shavings remind me of my childhood. It was always fascinating to see something that looked so sturdy curl over like paper once it was ‘planed.’

    1. Inside Journeys–There is something intriguing to me about wood shops. It may be mostly the smell. Unfortunately there is (not yet) a Word Press plug-in to send the aroma along with the pictures.

    1. Jan: I’ve seen those painted flagstones on several islands in the Cyclades in Greece. I never researched whether they have any particular meaning, but some are really lovely.
