The weekly photography challenge theme is Symbol. We all have seen so many symbols by which we show our love. But today I am gonna show what shouldn’t be used as a symbol of love. Carving names on tourist places, especially archaeological sites. There is something called Sustainable and Responsible tourism, that every one of us should follow.
Long pending post of my photographs from the latest California trip. I am too lazy and consumed with other things, to even make an effort. But then better late than never. Here are some of the photographs of Fort Bragg’s Skunk Train station , which was unfortunately closed when I was there, and my trip to the Mendocino Botanical Gardens, which is a pleasure to walk, even if it takes around 2-3 hours minimum.
When I was in Fort Bragg, I decided to visit this light house called Point Cabrillo which was within the city limits. Went there by around 3.30 pm and spent a while there. According to the lady there, who was so happy to receive a visitor from India on her tour of light houses, this one has the third order Fresnel lens where as the Point Arena (which was already in my list of to-visit places) has the 1st order Fresnel lens. There was this one squirrel who was roaming the place and gave me company during my visit there. I have tons of pictures of that little friend. I did hope to catch some whales, but they had already done their visits in the morning. Around 8 pairs were spotted during the first half of the day, according to the lady at the gift shop. Not my day to catch them I guess. But as usual, felt at peace and enjoyed the nature and the cold winds before I decided to head back after 6 pm.
