Street photography….nothing quite like it!
Thank you for pointing me toward this group of bloggers!
Feb 26th at 4:42 pm
Truly cool showing that we’re all really the same.

All the photographs are awesome, my favorite is the one with the woman with vegetables in front of her. The chillies are yummy.
Feb 26th at 6:04 pm
This was super interesting. I felt like I was present in each of those photos. This is an awesome project.
Feb 26th at 6:15 pm
The one with the dog was funny. You need some cool pictures from my country Honduras.
Feb 26th at 6:49 pm
What a wonderful jaunt around the world. I do wish I could actually make some of these travels, but right now if it cost a nickle to go around the world, I couldn’t get out of sight!
Feb 26th at 6:52 pm
This was amazing! Thanks for putting this together. You’ve inspired me to put together something like this from my trip to the Caribbean last year.
It’s interesting what came to mind when looking at these pics. I live in Vancouver where we have a large immigrant population, so seeing these pics was like looking into 12 different people’s realities even though we live here in Canada side by side…hmmm

Great photos. I’m always amazed at how third world entrepreneurs manage. There’s a guy with shop in the space between buildings. It doesn’t even look like an alley. And the lady selling vegetables on the street — nothing. No tables, doors, cash register.
The human spirit to build something and make it grow and thrive is like a seed. Toss it anywhere and with just a little spot of soil, sun and water it will sprout and grow.

Very interesting collection of pictures. I love traveling, it keeps me connected to the our great big world.
Feb 26th at 8:01 pm
Thank you very much for featuring my photograph among so many great shots, Krista.
Feb 26th at 8:14 pm
Delighted to find my locksmith on this list!! Many thanks Krista!!
I need to point out a small error though….this was shot in Kolkata and not in Delhi.
Feb 26th at 8:17 pm
Lovely. The images all capture things that feel familiar even in their ‘foreign -ness’.
Feb 26th at 8:23 pm
What a groovy way to showcase the content of different blogs. From time to time you could showcase different themed content. Examples are endless but could, for example, include mountains or seas and oceans.
Feb 26th at 9:35 pm
I enjoyed the trip. Thanks for sharing.
Feb 26th at 9:38 pm
I <3 Photography!

Thanks for including my image! Great set of photos!
Feb 26th at 11:54 pm
To me as a photographer, it is a pleasure to be in that kind of journey. Brilliant selection, regards.
Feb 27th at 12:32 am
Nice flight for the eye!
Feb 27th at 12:50 am
That was wonderful! So fun to travel so far in a few minutes, and all the shots were really interesting!
Feb 27th at 2:31 am
Weeee! What a ride, thanks Krista! Great choices, and while I love the wind-blown dog (of course), Richard’s portrait blew me away. Wow!
Feb 27th at 3:50 am
That was an amazing photo trip. Thanks for the cool update.
Feb 27th at 11:15 am
Love this post and the amazing photography featured. I would love to see this as a regular WP feature. Lovely!
Feb 27th at 12:55 pm
I love seeing how other people earn a living around the world. It takes me out of my little box and lets me dream…
Feb 27th at 3:25 pm
That is a pleasant surprise! You’ve done a fantastic job. I am glad because the image of my native country appeared in your writing!
Feb 27th at 4:48 pm
Normal day to day stuff is more attractive than staged photography!
Feb 27th at 5:52 pm
Feb 27th at 6:00 pm
I love how despite all that’s wrong with the world, people are smiling and getting on with life. The human spirit is fantastic.

Daily activities photography, I love it
Feb 28th at 9:15 am
Beautiful photos of normal daily activities. Watching them makes me realize how similar all human beings are despite our geographic differences. They make me feel part of a worldwide family.
Feb 28th at 2:29 pm
Great shots!!! a real pleasure for eyes and mind.
Feb 28th at 3:24 pm
It is so hard in photography to represent a whole country or even a specific idea or ideal in one picture. Your pictures are very good and thought provoking, so I guess they hit the mark you were shooting for, I would look forward to seeing photo essays, using your own shots, where you are telling a story or supporting something you are passionate about. Thanks for the Post. DON

Amazing photo trip!

Love this , traveling from the comfort of my living room . How wonderful the world of technology taking each of us on a perfect journey . thank You for this.
Mar 1st at 2:03 am
So are people of African descent and Africa not a part of the world? Why aren’t there any representations of Africans in these 12 photos around the world? The picture in this post of Frankfurt, Germany is just of a dog. You really included a picture of a dog but not any black people? Not just Asians and white people populate this planet.
Mar 1st at 11:17 am
This post makes me want to go EVERYWHERE and see EVERYTHING!

Beautiful photos with a unique perspective. What an interesting way to capture different pieces from around the world! And just a small amount of supplemental text needed for context – photos really can speak for themselves.
Mar 5th at 8:37 pm
