Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

I was very excited to see this week’s photo challenge theme. I consider myself to be an urbanite. I love the traffic, the tall buildings, the noise and the modernity of the cities I’ve visited and lived in. Here are some photos of some of the cities I have been to and adored.

My Canada Day Photo Tribute

Today (July 1st), is Canada’s birthday. Today the country I call home is 145 years old. I decided to skim through my photo albums and find photos that had my country’s flag in it. I’ve posted the photos below as a tribute to my home country and the nation that gave the world peanut butter, snowmobiles, gas masks, basketball, IMAX, insulin and of course, ice hockey.

Have a Happy Canada Day wherever you find yourself on planet Earth.

The Cupcakes of Cafe Everyday

Nestled inside the trendy, university district of Hyewha-Dong in Seoul, is a great little cafe with the most delicious cupcakes. The cupcakes of Cafe Everyday do not only taste great, but also look like individual pieces of art.

These cupcakes look almost too good to eat, but if you have a sweet tooth you will eat them anyway.

I’m not too sure what the calorie count is on these tasty suckers, but you will lose weight in your wallet or purse though purchasing these treats. The average price is about 4000 WON ($3.50 USD) each.

Though these cupcakes can be a little pricey and maybe a little high in calories, they  are certainly worth a taste. You will admire their creative designs and then devour their deliciousness.

The Ways We Get Around

As you travel the world you get to see many different modes of transportation. Here are some photos taken from different places I’ve visited of the different ways people get around.
