Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Connections

Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week, is ‘Connections’. Here are a few pics which I think are suitable, showing the way we connect with one another over distances. Have you also noticed that many of your holiday photos have these strange lines across them, sometimes right across the middle of what you were trying to photograph?


Some have more lines than others.


Too many lines can definitely ruin a view.


I suppose it’s really important for a police station to be connected at all times.


The most humble of homes also need connections,


and even in Paradise, one needs to stay connected.


What would one do without a connection to the internet, even in the smallest room?


Also on the subject of connections, here’s a message I had on Facebook from my granddaughter Tamsyn, thanking you for all your good wishes and lovely comments on the blog I did for her 18th birthday. I thought you’d like to know how much she appreciated your kind words. Isn’t it wonderful how we can all connect with one another right around the world?

“So . . I read your special birthday blog that you did for me It was absolutely wonderful just wanted to say thank you so much. Couldn’t believe how kind people are with their comments and birthday wishes – I felt very special. I loved the photos, I’ve never seen that photo of you and I with my little ballet outfit on but it’s very sweet. Thank you again to you and granddad for making my 18th birthday so special . . and thanks to your lovely bloggers. x”

  2. Can’t imagine a world without communication, electric and water connections. Chaos perhaps. In moments of disasters, loss of communication can be frightening. Having them makes life easier and convenient.

  3. Ha a lovely way to turn something round AD ! Those dratted lines .. so difficult to avoid so often .
    Lovely message from your grand daughter too πŸ™‚

  4. This is getting a bit repetitive, but you sure know how to find some brilliant shots for the themes. Your granddaughter is lovely. I think I know where she gets her beautiful looks and manner.

  5. You know what’s endearing looking at all these…. You take pictures of just about anything… Makes me smile. πŸ˜€ The lines memorable from me is the one in Amsterdam.

  6. mi sono piaciuti tantissimo i tuoi modi di collegare, sempre attenta e creativa, !
    un saluto alla piccola nipote

    I liked very much your ways to connect, always attentive and creative!
    a salute to the little nephew

  7. Great choice to make a post about the annoying electric lines. I agree and then one night when the power goes out I am grateful !!! The toilet shot is hilarious!

  8. I like the photos that you selected to share for this prompt.
    So nice – the message from your granddaughter. Thanks for posting it here for us to read! πŸ™‚

  9. Oh yes, the lines always bother me but thanks to you post I will try to see them in a more positive light. Connections are everywhere! Your granddaughter is so sweet to a thank you message. πŸ™‚

  10. Oh yes those unnoticed lines. And what is so frustrating is that you cannot go back and retake the photo.
    Love the last photo. What a find.

  11. I must say those little black lines sometimes really bug me Sylvia. They always seem to spoil an otherwise lovely photo. Ah well where would we be without communication and indeed without WordPress?

  12. You have taken a good line on this! πŸ™‚
    I hate overhead cables in my pictures; particularly those of countryside. Sometimes it is really difficult to avoid them. It makes a nice change to be looking for them!

  13. Ahh what a sweetie Tamsyn is, you must be very proud πŸ™‚
    The lines, yes . . . they drive me crazy and I’ve been known to photoshop some quite long ones out!
