I am taking part in HostelBookers 7 Super Shots. It was fun, very challenging to select seven shots that:
I choose these seven images. Which one do you like best?
A place to contemplate and think:
The Botanical Building and Lake of the Flowers was built in 1915 for the Panama-California Exposition and is located Balboa Park, San Diego, California. The lush conservatory and park transports me into the 1900s in California an earlier era.
A friendly horse at a Children’s Farm in Illinois makes me smile and a day on a farm is filled with outdoors, work and fresh everything and fields.
The dunes and Lake Michigan, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Park, Indiana, is the place to get in touch with nature, and to relax and daydream on the miles, miles of pristine beach.
The photo of the cafe, and French Quarter, with its great food gets my mouth-watering. New Orleans feeds the body and the soul.

Explore and discover photograph, my National Geographic moment.
National Geographic began as an explorers’ club whose members were travelers and adventurers discovering new cultures, dinosaurs and amazing things. I can be an explorer at a natural history museum and discover new things like this mammoth skeleton that was found in Kenosha.

Takes my breath away. The multi-story ferris wheel, and amazing views of the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan that Navy Pier offers, takes my breath away. The entertainment complex had amusements, theater, music, museum, boat tours and shows. It’s also a connection between the marine and land Chicago.

Tells a story. The historic Mystic Seaport tells many stories to visitors. The story of the Amistad slave ship; the New Englander culture of fishing, whaling; a ghost story; what it was like to live in a seaport village and many more.
