Wits-End-November18-18-Whats-Not-There

 

 

 

 

I distinctly remember saying that I

had a shot of where it was..

after taking this photo.

What’s not there is…

this Kalahari Scrub Robin

at Lekhubu Island in Botswana.

Note the dirt/sand kicked up as it accelerates away.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-From-Above-and-Below

~~~~~~

The most recent above below shots I have come from…the Peak2Peak Gondola Ride

between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains

Destination Blackcomb

Below the cables at Whistler….

and above those running up Blackcomb.

Arriving here we had just completed a ride in

the longest unsupported span between two cable car towers

of 3.024 kilometres (1.88 miles),

and at a height of 436 metres (1430.45 feet)

it is the highest cable car above ground.

And that is where we came from and our return destination.

Again, below the Blackcomb cables

and above the cable running up the side of Whistler.

And should the cables all break there is

a smooth 1400 foot fall to terra firma,

which I  do not want to experience.

Wits-End-Weekly-Prompt-Four-Legged-Friends

 

My best ever four legged friend…Brandy pup, circa Christmas 1988 / January 1989. 

He wasn’t much older before he began to work sheep for me. 

He worked so well that I called him

my Six Million Dollar Dog…after the television show.

Then he took command of the ute and

would sit and wait for hours.

 

Teaching the new chum how to behave on a  truck!

I think this is Zoe…not brandy’s pup.

He only ever sired one litter and died

about two weeks after they were born.

From that litter I kept Ginger who died,

as suddenly as Brandy did, in 2015

Both Brandy and Ginger would ‘sing’ (howl) on cue,

although Ginger was harder to start and keep going.

She was a little princess.

Father and daughter were around for 26 years combined….

so definitely four-legged friends.

Butchart gardens for Curves.
Ross Fountain water curves out…

and in.

Curves in the Chinese Dragon.

Angular curves on the Carousel.

A more natural curve in the

Sunken Gardens path,

and the garden beds.
