This photograph was taken in the city center area of Bruges, a famous World heritage site of UNESCO. Bruges is also called as the ‘Venice of the North’ for its famous canals in the middle of the city. I spent a day out here, mostly in city center, looking at the medieval architecture which is intact. The city center was lit in the evening and this particular one in a restaurant impressed me. It looked quaint amidst the city of beautiful architecture and cobble stone paths.

I took this photograph at Muang Ngoi village in Laos, when I was visiting a distanced community that could not be accessed by the regular road, back in December 2012. So, I went there with a box of sweets and school tools and entered into the village full of Kids. Many of the kids were enjoying our presence, but this girl in the photograph was watching their domestic animals around her household.

This photograph was taken in Switzerland during a ride in Glacier express towards St.Moritz. Glacier express passes through the World Heritage Site known as the Rhaetian Railway in the Albula / Bernina Landscapes. It was the first time I visited Swiss and most of the scenery looked like a postcard. This particular view was very interesting to see some colors in between the white snow.

Before starting my every photography trip I always do small shopping – mostly sweets like lollipops, to fill up pockets of my cargo trousers for local kids that I would possibly meet on my way. This was a mountain village on our trek in Annapurna Circuit of Nepal Himalayas, where kids had just finished their classes and started walking long way back home. Giving sweets are always good motives to catch their attention for a moment to photograph them. And when I was about to photograph this girl, she looked straight into my camera.

The very moment I saw Fuji-san, it was nothing less than breathtaking. It was an autumn evening when I visited Lake Kawaguchiko to witness this mountain. Fuji-san is 3,776.24 m (12,389 ft), the highest mountain in Japan. The snow covered cap and its symmetrical shape makes it easily, one of the best cultural site to visit. To get this shot, I had to climb another mountain facing Fuji-san, and all I can say, “It’s worth the trek to get this picture.”

Tisha Clinkenbeard works have been in exhibits at The Fine Arts Center of Hot Springs, Black Box Gallery in Portland, and in several fine art shows in Texas. She believes photography captured her years ago before we had the digital wonders for cameras. Her life offers many opportunities to capture the things that she sees as she wanders this earth. Her goal is to share what she finds Round & About – which was the inspiration for her photo blog: foundroundandabout.com. Two of Tisha’s photos have been appeared in the Birds & Blooms monthly online newsletter – April and December of 2011.
