Travel Theme: Outdoors

I’m posting via email based on my email from Word Press with Ailsa’s weekly post photos showing the outdoors.

I’m not sure how they’ll look online as I can’t read my blog till I get a new VPN. I’ve decided to take a short social media fast through Holy Week. So no Facebook or Twitter (no New York Times or a lot of benign sites either). I’m experimenting with posting via email.

I hope these show up fairly well. Cherry blossoms are one of my favorite aspects of spring. Ah, they make me remember Japan.

It’s time for another Sepia Saturday post. This week’s prompt had me searching Flickr Commons for photos of parades way back when.

Sepia Saturday

2015.01W-63

This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt featured buses and transportation as a theme. If you think about it, it’s amazing all the various conveyances used to help us get around. Here’s a few I found on Flickr Commons.
