Too cold for a photography outing this weekend

so I have had a look at some images

which contain people to see what I could find. 

Not sure if I noticed the couple before

or after I took the shot, however…

…from the wide angle comes a nice photo of a couple.

This photo…

…and this one…


…blended to create this image posted in

‘Capture the Moment’

for last week’s

Friendly Friday 

Similarly at Melbourne’s

Saint KIlda Pier…

…the wide angle shot cropped to focus

on the model and photographer. 

Both model and photographer were participating

in this shoot to fulfil requirements

of a course they were taking.

 

Are these two an ‘item‘?

Maybe…in this crop…

…and maybe not, the more space

they have around them.

From this crowded scene comes many stories.

One of which could be: 

The shark was this big, dead set!’

This game of badminton and its two spectators

was found….

…right here on Sydney’s

Manly Beach

About 9 years ago I had never dreamed

of taking this, or any other, image

in Kruger National Park.

A spur of the moment decision saw us

making plans to visit

Botswana’s Okavango Delta in 2014.

It was here we sighted what

our guides described as…

…1,000 elephants migrating from A to B.

Finally a less exotic image

from much closer to home.

Wimmera River

This year we had planned another African Safari, in June.

However, our sighting the zebra crossing…

…the leopard sleeping…

 

…lion cubs at play…

 

…or the pride at rest is no longer on our 2020 agenda.

I just hope everything is back to normal in 2021.

 

 

In 2016 we travelled to the northern hemisphere

where we discovered black lion statues.

We decided that the lions above were

nearly as interesting as their cousins

in previous photos, particularly as we had

been reading books in which they featured.

This lion in a rock was a bonus

which neither of us had heard.

In 2018 we discovered these lions guarding a bridge

which is an entrance to a park named

after the16th Earl of Derby

on the North American continent, in a west coast city,

in a country which had not fought

a war of independence.

In 2017 while visiting the

Western Front Battlefields

of World War I…

 

…I came upon two more lions guarding this Gate.

These lions, gifted to Australia after World War I,

were temporarily returned for

World War I Centenary Clebrations.

I was lucky to capture these images as the lions

were being returned to Canberra in November 2017.

***

The word lion/s and some nearby text in Google

will find the location if I have been too vague.  🙂

bounce.

jump repeatedly up and down,
typically on something springy.

These days, I only have to see…

…people jumping around like this

for my knee to begin to ache.

 

Stay Safe.
