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.
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!
Inspiration today – Hawaii!
Today, pictures from valued commenter Joey Maloney.
I’m visiting family on the Big Island of Hawaii. I was in downtown Hilo this morning for the farmer’s market and I took a few shots.
There’s a gazebo on the Hilo bayfront where some area homeless hang out by day. The trees in the background are the ancient City of Refuge, a small island in Hilo Bay.
A panoramic shot of Hilo Bay. It was kind of a grey day but if you download and view the pic at full size there’s lots of interesting detail
Hilo’s gone on a street art binge since I was last here a year ago. Wacky murals like this are everywhere in the downtown. See if you can spot the Dukakis/Bentsen bumpersticker.
Thank you so much Joey Maloney, 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.
