Some random beautiful and bigs…

The Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

Big and beautiful, although

in the process of telling us to move on.

Finally, the Sydney Opera House.

Wits-End-October-Inspirations2018-14Waterhole

 

 

 

 

Some…

well used…

 

African…

 

 

waterholes.

 

Finally,  while photographed in Opotiki, New Zealand,

I’m guessing this type of waterhole

would be well used wherever in the world it is located.

I’m certain the Australian version is.

Wits-End-October-Inspirations2018-13Wrinkles

 

 

 

 

This past week, I read…

or heard that an elephant’s wrinkles…

are designed to keep it cool.

So that will be my excuse for wrinkles as I near

the beginning of my eight decade.  🙂

My initial thoughts were of planes

for the In Flight challenge.

However, I discovered…

I had more images of…

birds in flight than planes.

 

This kingfisher hovering for lunch,

in Botswana’s Okavango Delta,

is one of my favourites.

My first thoughts were of regular limbs such as…

sun baking legs, and…

performing arms.

Then today we visited two of

New Zealand’s Waitomo Caves and I

could not help but think these

stalactites and stalagmites

looked a bit like limbs stretching out

to greet each other

My emptiness post comes from our travels

in Botswana in 2014.

  I will never forget approaching this site.

 I was absolutely we were approaching a long grey wall

out in the north-eastern reaches of the Kalahari Desert.

Nothing so mysterious, just the water

at Nata Bird Sanctuary.

 

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.

What this impala lives on is beyond me.

If these shots don’t epitomise emptiness

I don’t know what does…

However, we both felt that these shots…

 

epitomise our preconceived thoughts of what Africa

would look like.
