SNAP - I Was Here, On The Path

Linking in with some very Snappy folks along with our hostess Helena at:  SNAP.    Have a peek at what everyone else has found as a two to four photo collection this week & then join in - go on, you know you want to.

This week my collection are the Inukshuks that I see, from the small found in my garden, the roadside builds, garden centre mascots, to  the huge found at corporate offices. 

Inukshuk, the singular of inuksuit, means "in the likeness of a human" in the Inuit language. They are monuments made of unworked stones that are used by the Inuit for communication and survival. The traditional meaning of the inukshuk is "Someone was here" or "You are on the right path."

  1. Love this collection - I like the differences in how the stones are used while they are all ecognisable - when I was on holiday in Teneriffe last year there were a lot on one beach - must ahve been some Canadian visitors

  5. Love these! Great how they are the same but different. (I want to find one in my garden too!) The garden centre one is my fave, reminds me of the Michelin man!
