FOWChallenge-Skimp

skimp

expend or use less time, money, or material on something
than is necessary in an attempt to economize.
“don’t skimp on insurance when you book your holidays”
a fashionably short or revealing garment.
“she wore a yellow skimp”

Not many years ago this hemline…

…would have shocked everyone.

Now it is rather conservative.

The bikini clad sun lovers are borderline skimpy

by today’s standards.

As I don’t shoot many people in skimpy attire,

I  had too search photos like this to find…

to find any skimpy or not so skimpy clad

beach goers at Sydney’s Manly Beach.

Due to my shocking colour sense I am not

going to focus on colour wheels rather on how well 

the earthy tones of some of South Africa’s

flora and fauna harmonise.

I may be stretching the definition of harmonising

however I was surprised at how

such large (and small) animals

could ‘lose’ themselves in this environment. 

For the record there is

three giraffes here.

Our first and only pride of lions. 

The pride which camps on the road

until tourists hear about them.

If you were thinking of capturing the lioness

in the foreground you would also need

to contend with four others in this shot

and the male sitting on the

other side of the road.

From the large to the small.

I am calling this a Quail of sorts.

Goggle was unhelpful.

Fairly well camouflaged to my eyes.

A better image also from

South Africa’s

Kruger National Park.

The Chinese Scholar’s Garden.

Again not many flowers.

And those I could find, are again, nameless

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Escape

~~~~~

An intruder just manages……

…to escape Maggie’s charge.

I’m not sure who was happier to see the fence,

the intruder or Maggie.

The intruder was going into dalmation and whippet territory.

Maggie’s thirty metre pursuit across the yard was her limit.

In reality they both escaped.

The intruder from Maggie.

And Maggie escaped further action

had she caught said interloper.
