Travel Theme: Transformation

P1020130

This week Ailsa of Where’s My Backpack challenges bloggers to share photos that express “transformation.”

Hmmm. This required a lot of thought and I’m not delighted with my choice, but fire does transform these incense sticks to ash. The religious symbolism is one of change and purification.

If you would like to join in (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:

  1. Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Transformation
  2. Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
  3. Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday
