Saturday Snapshot--April 9, 2011

This meme is hosted by Alyce from At Home With Books

To participate in Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken. Photos can be old or new, and can be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. All Alyce asks is that you don't post random photos that you find online.

I went pretty far back in my photo archives to find this one. It's from my 1997 trip to Cambodia and Vietnam when my brother and I were traveling from Phom Penh by car to the border with Vietnam. We were waiting to cross the Mekong River and there was just something about this woman that I liked.

I have this photo up on my wall just above my computer so it's one of the ones I look at multiple times each day.

That is a lovely profile shot. (And I wish I had posture that good!) I so much want to see what her face looks like.

There is so much to see in this photo. The colors are so serene.

Trish said...

That's amazing! She has the straightest back I've ever seen. I wonder what's in her basket?

Alyce--I think one of the things I like about this shot is her posture, it tells me she is proud

Laurel-Rain--I love this meme and seeing everyone's photos

Lee--Thank you!

Mary--The colors go perfectly in my room; the green in her shirt is a darker shade than my wall color

Trish--I don't know what's in her basket, but baskets around her had crickets, prickly pear fruit, and other delicacies
