Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Candid

~~~

Some Candid shots and crops

from Vancouver.

I saw a similar scene near Melbourne last year.

It was a photography assignment.

 

 

It may appear that I was taking a shot of this lady.

I can assure she was not my subject…

this is the scene I wanted to capture…leggo Orca.

In 1976 there was the real Orca doing tricks for tourists.

Is this a tribute?

Ever since taking this image I have pondered their story.

Was it young love, or models posing for

the ‘photographer’ in the foreground.

 

 

 

It was only this morning that I noticed the ‘photographer’

has his left arm dangling by his side and that

he appears to be using his phone (for its old-fashioned use)

and not taking a photo at all.



Aussie tourists being photographed by, yes,

another Aussie tourist.

Wits-End-December18-12-Fur

 

 

 

 

A photograph of fur was as close to seeing

the Grouse Mountain Grizzly Bears.

Those we asked did not know…we left….

and several of our fellow tourists arrived at feed time.

North American blues this week.

Our verandah view at the

Mike Wiegele Resort,

Blue River, Canada

We had a wonderful visit to

3,700 feet high Grouse Mountain…

 

where blue skies and icy snow packs gave us

something unusual to photograph.

We had been told of Beaver Tails so just had  to sample.

  Yum!

Although a cardiologist may not agree.

A few weeks later were soaring into the wild blue yonder

as we departed Fairbanks, in our bright blue plane,

crossing the Arctic Circle on our way

to Wiseman, Alaska.

Wouldn’t call this a statue, but not  sure it is an  effigy either.

I think anyone found destroying these birds would be frowned upon.

They can be found at the top of

Grouse Mountain,

Vancouver,

Canada.

My first photo is of Mount Elephant….

a volcanic cone,

one of the many in Western Victoria.

I have never been to the top of Mt Elephant

but driven past it hundreds of times in my life.

From the top of Mt Rigi

overlooking Lake Lucerne.

from Grouse Mountain,

Vancouver, Canada.

Workers from all over…

A gondolier.

My limited knowledge of lumberjacks’ work

tells me that they actually did climb trees

as part of every day work.

Memory could be way off though.

Happy to be corrected.

Beefeater Guide Tour

Amid that crowd is a Beefeater at work

guiding visitors around

the Tower of London.

 

While in Europe each guide carried a flag of some kind. 

Trouble was there was so much to see

and dawdle over, the coloured flag

was often forgotten (by me). 

All guides were very knowledgeable but

sometimes it was just nice to walk and look

without the constant commentary.

Our favourite African guide,

planning the next day. 

Or was he offering up thanks for

a successful day just ended?
