‘Camera Lucida’ – Journey

Welcome to week #6 of Camera Lucida Photo Challenge

Journey ( Colour )
Journey ( Colour )

This week’s theme: Journey


Middle English: from Old French jornee ‘day, a day’s travel, a day’s work’ (the earliest senses in English), based on Latin diurnum ‘daily portion’, from diurnus (see diurnal).

1 – An act of travelling from one place to another

1.1 – A long and often difficult process of personal change and development

Journey ( Black&White )
Journey ( Black&White )

The first snapshot was taken a few years back, in late Spring beginning of Summer, when nature wakes up slowly and blooms in the most beautiful colours you could ever encounter. This photo always makes me think of a journey…a route that awakens excitement, uncertainty and questions but at the same time happiness, warmth and relaxation.

The B&W caption is more recent, the colours were very similar with the first one, so I’ve played a bit with editing and made it black and white…the feelings and the emotions a B&W picture brings to life are always different…this one triggers a darker route with more shadows, not necessary negative but with deeper impressions.

This week’s theme can be whatever inspires your journey…an early morning caption of your street, the busy highway on your way to work, the narrow roads of the country side, a beautiful walking path from your last holiday…your Route 66 🙂

What will be your Journey?

How to join us?

Follow your host and share each week your own vision of the theme.

Create a new post with the title CAMERA LUCIDA followed by the theme name.

The content of the post is completely down to you, share just the photo or be even more creative and tell us the story behind the scene, make it your own.

Feel free to use the ‘Your Gallery’ badge in your post and link back to the last Camera Lucida challenge or just leave a link to your post in the comment box.

Please upload your entry every week starting from Wednesday to ‘Your Gallery’ which I am hosting through InLinkz, by clicking on the ‘Your Gallery’ badge below.

You will have seven days to introduce your snapshot to everyone.

At the end of each challenge I will share with you all the entries which were shown at the gallery and introduce you to their makers.

      1. Thank you. I really enjoy participating and hope that your feature continues to grow and thrive.
        One day I will be able to sit up and smartly humbly respond when asked; “Yes, I was one of the first ones who joined Camera Lucida. A prescient moment in my wildly successful journey as a blogger.”

      2. I think I do Julia. I would venture to say it is similar to how I enjoy the folks who support my blog. Hey, that’s you, too!
