Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far
I’m a newbie to the Weekly Photo Challenge and thought I’d give it a try. When I read about the topic, my mind instantly wandered in 2010 when I spent a month in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Christchurch is a very small city in south New Zealand. To get there, I had to travel alone, outside of my continent, for the very first time. R was there when I arrived of course, but the excitement of just getting on a plane alone, passing by a country that I’ve heard horror stories of (hello, Australia!), just freaked me out and amused me both at the same time.
This challenge reminded me of Christchurch because there, the sky just goes on forever. And ever and ever. It’s amazing!
I am not a professional photographer and I took these photos with an old Canon Ixus camera.
This bonus one is not from Christchurch. This was taken at an MTR station in Hong Kong, taken with my Holga. I didn’t know how it would turn out, so I was really surprised at how haunting this is.
I hope I was able to interpret the topic for this week’s photo challenge. Will definitely join again next week. It was fun to reminisce!
