Weekly Photo Challenge: Some Days You Just Gotta Laugh


The Weekly Photo Challenge is: Today Was a Good Day.

Although the WordPress gang wanted us to try their new Mesh program for a gallery of our photos, it was so frustrating that I gave up and instead found photos that made me laugh today.

You never know what you will find on Ometepe Island, Nicaragua.Β  The photos prove that in the land of the not quite right, you gotta laugh.Β  These photos were taken last week. So, for your entertainment today, I hope you have a few chuckles after viewing my photos.

How do you entertain the taxi driver’s two children on a long ride to Managua? You take goofy photos with your iPad.

IMG_0120This photo is so typical of an entertainment center in a Nicaraguan house. It just made me laugh. By the way, Marina told me the big TV doesn’t work so she covered it with a pretty doily.

  1. I like the Mesh gallery. It offers a much faster way to get multiple photos on WordPress in a slideshow. Yeah, there’s a learning curve involved and it’s not perfect but it can give your blog post an interesting look.

    • Annette, I think it was developed by WordPress for mobile devices. I always write my posts on my Macbook, and I had a difficult time ( impossible) to put captions on my photos and crop the photos. I’ll give it another try later, but I really didn’t have time to experiment with it.

  2. As I was opening your post I heard a little girl (perhaps eight or nine years old) laughing with her mother in the pool area. Her laugh was so contagious that I was laughing out loud as the girls mother made funny sounds and had that little one laughing. Laughter is good. We do a lot of it here. Thanks for the photos.
