Weekly Photo Challenge-Vivid




My contribution for this week’s challenge…



My first thoughts of ‘vivid’ were colours.

yellow-weaver_0177aSights of weavers building their nest came to mind.

For all who have not seen a weaver at work,

the picture is not upside down.

lekhubu-sunrise_0856Then I thought of vivid memories and sunrise at

Lekhubu Island (Botswana) had to be included.

crimson-roller_0412 Crimson Rollers had to part of the post, along with…

red-weaver_0325the Red Weaver, and…
shrike_0426the Crimson Breasted Shrike.

lion-cubs_0722Photographing these wild cubs at a distance of

twenty feet is definitely a vivid memory.

cheetah_0029-4passing between me and another traveler

who was no more the eighteen inches from me…

And that is my hand patting her head as instructed…

probably so she didn’t have to move

if she was still hungry.   🙂

this one put on a show for us to prove our guide wrong.

Those memories qualify as Vivid more so

than a bright colour,

as far as I am concerned.

    • Thanks Raewyn. I think we all have vivid memories of sorts…just perhaps we do not acknowledge them as such. One of our vivid memories/stories is the time Number 2 was chasing Number 1 across the back yard waving a Canadian Splitter above his head. He was going to plant it in big brother’s head! Ages: 6 and 9. If not familiar with a Canadian Splitter, think sledge hammer with a wedge on one side. Whether Canadians use them, I don’t know…but they make a mess of a block of wood which requires splitting.

    • It was. And more so when we heard that she was not around two weeks later when the next group visited. My fascination with Africa is that we can get so close to the wild animals. Just gorgeous.
