A Word a Week Photo Challenge: Tropical

Sue is stranded in a beautiful island in Malaysia and sure enough the first word that came to her mind is “Tropical.” To join and see more tropical photos, go here.

I guess for someone who grew up in the tropics, we take different pictures of our island compared to what tourists would take. Sure our beaches are beautiful but coming from a country with 7,100 islands, the sea is a way of life for many of us. I noticed I have taken more beach or shore scenes from different countries.

When we think of the word tropical, we think of the ocean, islands, coconut trees, mangroves. But the tropics is more than those.

These are a few of the things that remind me of where I came from – the tropics.
