Aisla’s travel theme this week honors the UN’s International Day of Peace, which is today, September 21st. 2012’s theme is ‘Sustainable Peace for a Sustainable Future.’ To help celebrate this day, Aisla has suggested that we post photos featuring white since many people plan to wear white as a way of showing their support. I would like to thank Aisla for raising awareness for such an important day. I have traveled to many places that have been torn apart by wars and devastated by greed. Here’s to hoping for peace all across the world. For my photos, I have selected photos from Botswana and South Africa. This post will replace my normal travel photo of the day. Peace, I hope, can become a reality. Not just for us, but for future generations. This planet has given me so much joy and I want others to feel that way, especially the younger generations.

Outstanding photo’s man.
I agree. OUTSTANDING! But you know my favorite is the lighthouse.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
I Hope you get to see it 🙂
yes a wonderful selection as always!
Love the white theme.
Beautiful photos to represent this theme! I too hope that peace can somehow be achieved for all of us living on this beautiful earth!
I would love for it to happen 🙂
beautiful photographs… especially number 3 hit me. Thank you dear TBM, have a nice weekend, love, nia
Thanks Nia. That’s one of my favorites as well.
great series again…love those storks…aren’t they just beautiful birds?
They are beautiful and fun to watch!
Lovely white photos, I am still going through my brain archives!
I had to do some thinking as well 🙂
Brilliant. They blend so well, it seems that all the photographs are of a single vicinity.
thank you 🙂
I like the different takes on the theme. My favourite is the big wheel. 🙂
I liked seeing it at night.
White really pops, especially in your photos. There was a garden in Charleston, SC when I visited that had all white blooms and at night it literally glowed. Fabulous.
That sounds amazing. I would love to see it!
Great shots! Am currently covered in splats of white paint – does that count?!
Yes! I would love to see it. I hope the project is going well.
All great shots! The ferris wheel really struck me!
YES – here’s hoping for peace everywhere! These are great “white” shots!
