The Scottish Coal Mine

Paula’s Traces of the Past Thursdays Special photo challenge

A couple of years ago we visited a disused coal mine in Scotland which is now the Scottish Mining Museum. The weather wasn’t all that great for taking photos but here is a few shots of the buildings and works.

Thursdays Special: your best photo of 2017

As the year winds down, Paula has asked not for a difficult photo challenge, but for the best submitted to Lost in Translation for 2017.

I have chosen the photo that Paula found special in 2017 with the word prompt Nautical from the Pick a Word in August. It almost matches Paulas photo as mine is from Rovinj as well

I am looking forward to more of my friend Paulas photo challenges in 2018 as it was a Pick a Word way back in February that started me with photo challenges. In case you didn’t see this blog, have a look at Something happened in 2017

Dancing

The word prompt from The Daily Post: Dancing

The Buddha Festival in South Korea is one of fun, food, music, drumming, dancing and a lantern street parade in the evening. The dancing is wonderful. Unfortunately I was too far back to get good photos or videos.

This young woman was fantastic
