Happy Place | Daily Post Weekly Challenge

This week the challenge is to show where your happy place is, away from the maddening crowds, your place to unwind and destress.

Simple, its anywhere I am taking photographs.  As soon as I have my camera in hand I am in my happy meplace.  So this week’s challenge is a breeze.  Showing photos I may not have done before not so easy.

After careful consideration I decided to show some of my photos from a much loved travel destination that always puts me in my happy place just thinking about it and going there catapults me into a much higher level of happy – PARIS!

For more “Happy Place” photos please go to the daily challenge here.

    • Thanks Claudette, yes its nice to have a passion that you can do relatively easily at home or outside of and enjoy it and simply be. It must be a little like when you create your wonderful poems 🙂

      • Hi Karen my poetry often comes from an unhappy place and then gets twisted to try and make it something else. Other times it is quirky – not sure I have ever written an completely happy one!


  4. Lovely pics Kaz, my favourites this time are the mono views of the Eiffel and Hotel Regina 😉
