Challenge your Camera – Steps ‘n Stairs

This week’s challenge from Dr. B’s Challenge your Camera is Steps and Stairs. We are in a five day lockdown here in Perth, so this is keeping me busy.

Built for the Chinese sea-goddess Mazu located in São Lourenço, Macau, Built in 1488, the temple is one of the oldest in Macau

Looking back at these photos makes me wonder when we will be able to start travelling again, it’s been a while!


  1. I see you like cruising too! As we have gotten older we have found it is the way to go! So many fabulous places to see! Hong Kong and Vietnam are still on our Bucket List. We are again looking at the travel brochures……..but who knows about anything any more!


    • We did enjoy a couple of cruises, but that was on the ill fated Sea Princess ! Two passengers died, there was an outbreak of pneumonia. We had to make an unscheduled stop for a man who had a twisted gut. I was very sick the day we got back. I’m a bit wary of cruises now, but who knows maybe down the track.

      • OMG! Alison I would be too! We always travel with the same cruise line and it is very small, only 500 passengers and 1400 staff on a medium sized ship, but still this could happen on any ship!

      • I think the smaller ones are the best. I really did enjoy the two I’ve been on though ..and it’s definitely worth paying a bit more for a balcony


  2. Looking through my photographs to find some steps and stairs I’ve wasted a good couple of hours re-living past (good) moments. It wasn’t actually wasted though, as I was able to bask in the warmth of sunnier climes with good friends and husband, so nostalgia was probably good for me. Now to sort out the ones I want to put up as examples of steps and stairs.

    On the subject of cruises, I don’t like them at all, but I accept the fact that I may have to eventually settle for them as a way to travel. I don’t like life on board and there isn’t enough time to get to know the places you stop at – and you never get to meet any locals. I’ve tried 3 cruises so no one can say I didn’t try! One was essential as a way to see the Fjords, one a Caribbean one and one Mediterranean one. I love travelling as a way of getting to know the people of different countries and that involves immersing oneself in the life over a week or two, more if possible, and definitely being able to wander around.


  3. I forgot to say on my reply above that I enjoyed a couple of cargo ship cruises – they are vastly different and much more enjoyable in my view, and I love river cruising where you stop at villages along the way.

  4. Interesting blog you have here!

    I empathize about ccp/covid waylaying travel plans. I had to cancel a long-awaited for walk in the Cotswolds and now with the restrictions and presuming impending regulations, I don’t know if it will come to pass. But, for now, I try as best as I can to stay in the moment…which means it’s snowing heavily. 🙂

    Like you, I’ve discovered the wonderful world of blogging challenges and find the one you’ve posted on steps and stairs to be quite mesmerizing. So much so, I might just have to poke around my photos to participate.

    Thank you also for the follow. Warm wishes to you —

  5. Great variety of images! I haven’t come across the Challenge your Camera challenge – it sounds interesting, although I am trying not to get involved in too many as I have years of past travels to write about too, having only recently started blogging 😀 Still, I may have to check it out …
