Future? Now, let’s see what will happen this week! Amy has chosen Narrow as our theme. She says:
Travel has taught me that once we go through a narrow path, alley, and/or road with a little patience, at the end it always opens up to pleasant surprises.
Of course I agree – in urban areas: a narrow street where you have to look far up to see the sun; steep, dark stairs ending in a light blue door, and the very old streets of Tbilisi.
My own love for things narrow, is a winding path – and preferably one of which I don’t know the end…
But, to me they all are inviting. Though every narrow shell does not hold a pearl – at least not one like my daughter!
Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence.
Finally, Thank you for all your creative answers to last week’s challenge, Future, fantastic reading and images, both hopeful and sad. Just the way Life is. ♥

Splendid examples of the theme. I especially love the last image, with the improbably curved stone shapes. Beautiful! And so is your daughter.
Thank you kindly, Celia. That means a lot to me – NZ was our last great adventure together, the whole family.
Wonderful shots. The last one is so special.
Thank you, Rupali. To me it is of course, as my daughter is in it!
These are lovely photos, Ann-Christine. Your narrow city street photos remind me of the old cobblestone alleys in historic areas of Philadelphia my dad would take us to for Sunday walks when I was a youngster. There are no places quite like that here in Portland, OR.
Excellent. Great ‘narrows’.
Thank you, John.
A wonderful sequence Ann-Christine, Tblisi is so beautiful and the last image of your daughter is truly special 💜 xxx
Thank you so much, dear Xenia!
You’re very welcome 💗 xxx
Wonderful narrow places Ann-Christine 🙂
Glad to share them with you!
I do love a narrow, winding path! Great take on the challenge! 🙂
Glad you enjoyed them, Amy!
Splendid shots for this challenge, Ann-Christine. That one of the bridge seems very scary!
Haha, well, the height was a bit scary, but otherwise the views were fantastic of the rainforest.
Wonderful post and photos, Leya!! The narrow streets look very intriguing but the shot with your daughter in the shell is just priceless!
You are very kind, Sarah, thank you!
You’re welcome! 🙂
Love these 🙂
I love narrow streets, great post!
So do I! Thank you, Ana!
Your daughter truly is a pearl in that shell of rock.m
And while all of your photos of the streets and buildings are great exemplars of ‘narrow’, I agree with you about the photo of the narrow, winding path. My eyes are drawn forward, looking into the distance and wondering where it leads. I aLso notice that in the foreground, the right-hand side has green growth, perhaps moss perhaps grass, that the left-hand side lacks. That makes me wonder what your path looks like in spring, when the trees have new-growth leaves, and in the fall in rich autumn colors.
Here’s my submission for this week:
Thank you, Babsje – you know, that path I have walked only once! I am going to return this spring to see it in full flower!
You’re welcome. I would like to see that. In fact, it could be neat to see that same scene photographed from that same spot in all 4 seasons. Best, Babsje
A good idea – I will give it a try
I really liked the contrasting colors in your picture with the blue door at the top of the narrow staircase.
I love staircases – thank you!

Wonderful photos – that bridge looks scary!!
It is a canopy bridge in the Amazon – a wonderful experience – quite stable. The worst thing was all the mosquito bites when the sun rose!
Stunning collection! ❤
So happy you liked them – ♥
That last shot is truly amazing!
Glad you like it – she had fun there!
So many of your loves in here, Ann Christine, but most of all your lovely girl 🙂 🙂
What a sweet comment, Jo! I will fly up to her in a couple of weeks. Hope for snow!
Love your photos of the old buildings
♥Thank you, Sherry – I am afraid I might tire you all with my love for them too!
Never. I hope to see lots of them in Tuscany thus summer.
Tuscany – lovely tour. Hope to see your posting from it.
I will. Thanks
I love the path among the huge trees and the photo with the chandelier at the end of the shot.
Happy to share them, Janet – and happy you liked them too.
Such beautiful leading lines. 😊
Thank you – the theme is almost impossible without it! Glad you liked it!
Can’t beat a narrow, winding path. Love it!
♥ You are so right – can’t beat a narrow, winding path!
Gorgeous shots, A-C. I love that beautiful path through the woods, and your daughter who is the ”pearl” in the ”oyster!” Wonderfully creative, A-C. And of course you included Tbilisi. 🙂
Glad you liked them, Patti – everything is narrow in Tbilisi…And as for Emma – lovely memories of NZ many years ago.
Holy cow…that suspension bridge looks challenging!! All of these are lovely – thanks for the inspiration 🙂
Thank you, Pam! That is a canopy bridge in the Amazon. Incredibly beautiful but incredible amount of flying and biting things as well…
Really cool collection, AC! Love the bridge and the hallway images! The capture of your daughter in the shall is special!
Thank you, Amy – a fun challenge!
Awwww, what a great post! Love the photos, and especially the one with your daughter 😊❤
♥ Thank you! Many years ago – good memories!
I knew there would be some Tbilisi for this theme!!
Haha – everything is narrow in Old Town!
This is so beautiful. Most pictures of Georgia are the countryside meadows and monasteries. Your photos of urban regions add a layer of beauty. This reminds me of New Orleans. I am putting Georgia on my list to must-travel.
Thank you for an interesting comment! I did not realize that was the case of the reports from Georgia. The countryside is gorgeous, but we stayed most of our days in Tbilisi, and found it very interesting. Architecture is a big interest, and there was much beauty heading for disaster. They tear down the old masterpieces and what is left is too heavily restored. I guess within 10 years not much will be left of the old charm.
Such an interesting post, Ann-Christine. I really like the picture of the narrow path on the embankment with trees on either side – intriguing!
Yes, Sylvia, that path was found by mistake – the GPS led me there and there was a closed bridge ahead. I left the car and followed the path because it looked intriguing.
Love those narrow old streets Ann-Christine, but the image of the girl in the “shell??” Is wonderful! Is that your daughter?
Yes, many years ago on a beach in New Zealand. Thank you, Tina!
