Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Perspective


My contribution for this week’s

Fun Foto Challenge




This week I am featuring my favourite

animal on the earth.

elephant_0160 Imagine getting a whack with this…

elephant_0187and a whole new dimension is added to…

‘Make sure you wash behind your ears’.  

Our children should never again grumble…

they don’t realise how easy they have it.

Same, as above, applies here

elephant_0160A couple of travellers felt a warm spot….just….there.

Our Guide and Google, assure me that

that is where testicles are kept.

You would have to think twice before

trying to kick him in the ………. :-)
elephant_0055Even this view was something

not previously experienced
Trunk_ElephantWork colleagues had no idea what this was…
elephant_0232and  it had to be explained.

Again not an everyday sight.


On our last day we had an early rise.

Imagine sighting this no more than thirty feet away.

elephant_0385bNot so much a different angle or perspective

for the photograph,

but definitely for the tourists.

Elephant_0181bWe were on the Olifants River

and this old dear was on land

and that was the difference

between high and low blood pressure.

Hers was high.

We were definitely not welcome.

Tuesday’s Black and White…in colour…plus one.

It’s a toss-up whether the colour or the Black and White version depicts trees stretching for the sun better.

Eagles are just beautiful.

It is interesting that many farmers,

where I was raised would gladly shoot an eagle.

I have not heard one harsh word said against

these birds since we moved.

Black and White Tuesday15-2605


Black and White Tuesday

 May 26, 2015


A mixture of subjects this week.

sunrise_0065aWhile out driving on Sunday morning,

quite suddenly I was enveloped by this fog.

tree_0074abBWThese tree trunks appear to have grown

to where the sun rises first.

eagle_0005And finally, I have never seen a sight like this in all my life.

So to actually spend time taking photos was a huge bonus.  

I would love to be another hundred metres or so closer.



Hope you enjoyed.


Which Way Challenge-15-2505



meerkat_5314Which way will I dig….I know…

meerkat_5316this way….and then…

meerkat_5317chuck it behind me.

Out of sight, out of mind!

That’s the way.


May not be quite what you had in mind for this  challenge, Cee.

However…… :-D

Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge-15Wk-21


This week’s

Odd Ball



If you are a member of the Over Sixties Facebook Group

you will have seen this on Wednesday.

Just in case you missed it I thought it was worth

running in the Odd Ball Challenge.


Age is of no importance…

unless you are

a cheese


Perhaps wine also?
