Weekly Photo Challenge – The suggestions were – one picture that portrays “culture” and make the audience curious.
The Meeting of Two Cultures. The Berber man from Morocco shows the Canadian guy some affection. We had been to his house for lunch. Even though we did not speak the same language, we spoke the same feelings. This was one of my favourite moments in Morocco, it was a genuine cultural exchange moment for us.
Last summer my husband and I hiked on Maine’s hut to hut system. We spent the first night at Poplar hut and then hiked 11 miles to Flagstaff hut the next day. Tired and hungry, we were met with a delicious supper and some wonderful guests. The icing on the cake was the sunset. It was quite a bonding, beautiful experience to share this sunset with the other guests at Flagstaff that July evening.

My husband and I travelled with the Pure Art Foundation, in 2011, to help build a home for a family in Pucallpa, Peru. We went to change the lives of a family in the Amazon, ironically, the biggest change was within ourselves.
I have just started playing with Lightroom and post processing photos. Generally, I am not a fan, but if I can improve on a photo, without making it too unnatural, I may become a convert. So this weeks challenge was the push I needed to play with color. I think the key is learning how to use all the features. I am definitely still in the super-experimental stage!! Can you guess which photos are the originals? I would love your thoughts and input on which photos you prefer.
