As a result of a long dry spell…

we crossed many dry creek beds

during our first visit to Africa.

A little playful lion.***

Both lion cubs, lioness and tourists had

twenty minutes of shear joy.

Cubs because they were able to roll in

elephant dung and Mum wasn’t growling.

Mum, because the kids were out of her hair.

Tourists….well need I say more?

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-M

~~~

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-M

(Needs to have 2 M’s in the word
(mammal, monument, moment, hammer, summit))

Random Ms this week.This was the style of accommodation

we experienced during our first trip to Africa.

To curtail cost we were back to tents, stretchers

and sleeping bags for about one-third of the safari.

During my trip to France this year we were told that

it is not uncommon to find ammunition dumps

like this one outside many villages on France.

This was the first of two we were shown.

About two or three weeks since it was last cleared.

 Selling commonplace items like these oil cans,

on Facebook, was not hard.

What was hard to believe was

the price people were willing

to pay for them.

 

Tucked in behind the red bus is

Britain’s House of Commons…

if my research is correct.

Finally, my commentary about these photos

is another MM word! 🙂

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-L

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-L

(Needs to have at least two syllables)

Next week I will read instructions first!

Lions, lights and lamps do not fit.
But Geelong’s Laneway art,  does.

 

So does Melbourne’s Laneway art.

A Leopard is good.

 

Along with a Leemur at Melbourne’s Zoo.

 

Although the foreground is what I know as fog grass,

not very nutritious for livestock and a bit of a weed,

it still does form part of the

Moorabool Valley roadside landscape.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Scale

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Scale

~~~~~

These balls adorn the foreshore at

the ocean end of Geelong’s main street.

In daylight they are just white balls…

of similar size once one allows for

subject to camera distance.

Correct?

 

No.  Not all the same size and not all that big.

The stakes supporting the young trees

are only about 2 metres high.

 

A life-size horse and rider…

or something rather small?

 

I posted this shot only a few days ago,

  however, Tembo is twice my size,

and I am not a jockey.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Pedestrian

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Pedestrian

~~~~~

When I think of pedestrian I think of people

that I need to give way to if I am driving.

Or something may move at a pedestrian pace…slowly.

In Africa the animals are the pedestrians which

often move at a pedestrian pace.

 It is far better to wait for some, such as this rhino,

until they have crossed the road.

Similarly a good idea not to upset

the gentle giants of the land.

Some small impala you think you could bluff…

until, he who never looks comes

bounding out of the scrub

Then there are pedestrians who cause traffic chaos

with their sit down strikes.

This lot even sent out a parking inspector to

make sure we were all doing the right thing.

A post about pedestrians would not be complete

without a zebra crossing image.

 Zebras will never die of high blood pressure.

On this day, they even took time out

to gawk at the tourists.
