On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions. From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
This series was created by Alain Chamot (1971-2020).
Good Morning All,
This weekday feature is for Juicers who are are on the road, traveling, or just want to share a little bit of their world via stories and pictures. So many of us rise each morning, eager for something beautiful, inspiring, amazing, subtle, of note, and our community delivers – a view into their world, whether they’re far away or close to home – pictures with a story, with context, with meaning, sometimes just beauty. By concentrating travel updates and tips here, it’s easier for all of us to keep up or find them later.
So please, speak up and share some of your adventures and travel news here, and submit your pictures using our speedy, secure form. You can submit up to 7 pictures at a time, with an overall description and one for each picture.
You can, of course, send an email with pictures if the form gives you trouble, or if you are trying to submit something special, like a zipped archive or a movie. If your pictures are already hosted online, then please email the links with your descriptions.
For each picture, it’s best to provide your commenter screenname, description, where it was taken, and date. It’s tough to keep everyone’s email address and screenname straight, so don’t assume that I remember it “from last time”. More and more, the first photo before the fold will be from a commenter, so making it easy to locate the screenname when I’ve found a compelling photo is crucial.
Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the pictures!
Today, a picture from valued commenter HeleninEire.
Just one pic from Dublin. I have walked past this building 100 times; both before and after I moved here. It is 3 blocks from my house, and I never noticed that incredible mural. Looks like it’s primarily made of copper.
My Dublin friends assure me that there are many similar hidden art gems in the city.
I’m going on a hidden art hunt! I’ll share what I find.
Awesome – thanks so much!
Next up, some stuff from La Passionara, one of my favorite nyms on the site. My dearest cat was often called “La” Mimi, or just “La”. And for at least the past decade, I often referred to my mother as “La Mama”, which is really French (la) and Spanish (Mama). In both cases, this translated internally into “the most wonderful and beloved”. So it’s nice to have a “La” commenter.
They were taken on Saturday, October 28, 2017, at one of Paris’s many street markets.
I tried sending some photos on the form, but was unsuccessful. I do not have a great camera, and I do not consider myself a good photographer. But I love the Paris markets, and if you choose to post these, I hope others will enjoy them also.
Those mushrooms make me hungry, so very hungry. My original mushroom collecting experience was in France as a kid and I’ve not left one on my plate ever since.
Thank you so much , do send us more when you can.
Travel safely everybody, and do share some stories in the comments, even if you’re joining the conversation late. Many folks confide that they go back and read old threads, one reason these are available on the Quick Links menu.
