Woah… This photo is just beautiful! Makes you want to visit this strange exotic land of Myanmar (aka Burma). Bagan, Myanmar is one of the main tourist hotspots. More than 10,000 Buddhist temples were built in Bagan between the 11th and 13th centuries. Many were damaged from earthquakes and erosion, but more than 2200 remain today. The balloon rides will cost you US$300 per person. But for the beautiful views & photo op, I would love to visit these ancient structures someday…

Do you like beautiful photos? Then you must like Flickr. So many wonderful photos, so little time to see all the best ones. So, onomeister is here to share the best photos! Like this one by NatashaP who took this eye-poppingly beautiful shot of Mount Fuji and cherry blossoms during a sunset on April 17, 2013 in Yamanashi, Japan. Oh, and there seems to be a river of strawberry milk…

I have told you that Flickr is photorific, haven’t I? Look at this stunning photo of a sunset and icicles by Ken Scott photography! I would love to take photos like this, but these kind of opportunities are not easy to find… Thank you Flickr for sharing!

sunset-silkscreenAnyone else thinks Flickr is awesome?? There are so many wonderful photos, so little time to go through them all. Take a look at this one by champbass2. First thing that I thought of was the Karate Kid movie, where Daniel-san’s karate uniform had that special logo on the back given as a gift from Mr. Miyagi (except it was a bonsai tree, not birds). Second thing I thought was that this would be a great silk-screen painting (see smaller photo)! Could someone paint this for me??  Thanks for sharing champbass2!!
