Cee-BW-Challenge-Tender-Moments

~~~~~

From all over this week.

Not sure if this is a ‘tender moment’ or

a power play in the

Chobe National Park,

Botswana.

I choose to believe it is the former.

Mother gently reminding the family to keep up

in Geelong Wetland..

Horse and handler in Victoria,

British Columbia,

Canada.

My final tender moment at

the Port of Vancouver.

WitsEnd-Weekly-PC-Repeating-Patterns

 

Canada provided me with repeating patterns this week.

Memory says this piece of art can be found

at the top of Grouse Mountain.

Port of Vancouver

This wall was sighted within a block or two

of the Port of Vancouver.

I have stated previously that…

our Christmas Tree brings back… 

more treasured memories each year…

 

as we collect more decorations… 

 

from places visited.

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.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Blue

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.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Effigy

~~~~~

~~~~

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.
