Weekly Photo Challenge – Waiting



Tabuaeran, Republic of Kiribati.

This week, Cheri Lucas Rowlands asks us to share a snapshot that shows a sense of waiting. She writes in part, ” they focus on the moment before the action and capture the anticipation, or the rumination, or the calm before the storm.” You can read her entire challenge post here.

On our first cruise with Norwegian Cruise Lines, our itinerary took us to a small coral atoll in the Pacific. It’s native name is Tabuaeran, however you can find it on the charts as Fanning Island. The snapshot I feature for the challenge this week is of two boys, one of whom is a performer on a stage show put on for the cruise line guests. While he waits to perform, he’s obviously been charged to care for his brother. You can find more photos in a gallery of Fanning Island imagery here.
