I combined my submission for Where’s My Backpack’s Travel theme: Leading Lines and Jakesprinter’s Sunday Post “Splendid” photo challenges together in this post. It’s first time I combined photo challenges.

If you feel inspired and have a photo that expresses “splendid” or “leading lines,” you can join in the photo challenges.
