Just for fun, I rummaged through my travel pics and found these photos of elements of nature taken around the world (well, on 3 continents).
When we travel, we tend to mostly take pictures of architecture and famous landmarks. I do that a lot, but I also like to capture the natural environment of the place I’m in, whether it’s a city or the countryside.
Sometimes, depending on the local climate, the flora is similar to that of Montreal. Other times, it is different and exotic (to me). I’m also very bad at identifying types of plants and trees so if any of you can tell me what some of these are, I’d be really happy to learn!
Here are a few examples of images I’ve taken while wandering around:
This first image was taken in the far, exotic land called Hochelaga Maissonneuve 😉 (that’s in Montreal, the neighborhood where I used to live).
Flowers at Battery Park, New York City
The Villa Borghese park in Rome

A flowery field in beautiful Britanny, France
Buckingham palace, as seen across a pond in St-James Park, London, England
Flowers at the Barcelona municipal plant deposit (which is not open to the public but we ended up there when we got lost trying to find something else).
A Rose in Istanbul, Turkey (probably taken on the European side of Istanbul but I don’t remember so I decided to put it under Asia since most of the country is considered as being on that continent).

Flower fields in Nakafurano, Farm Tomita, Hokkaido, Japan
