Words from all over.
And a bit late for October
I have never seen so much water flowing, or gushing,
over Hopkins Falls as there was in August 2017.
This is what I think of when I see the word aperture.
That little hole in the centre of a lens.
Frontier… a line or border separating two countries. At Hill 60 in Belgium, the
white line in the foreground indicates the British front line.
Most of our group are in No Man’s Land, however our tour
guide is standing on Germany’s Front line.
Perhaps not triplets in the truest sense of the word,
however, it was the best I could do.
A ‘normal’ tapered building,
Burj Khalifa, in Dubai.
Normally I think of some that is tapered as being thinner
at the far end, usually the top.
Lochnagar Crater, on the Somme Battlefields,
is still thinner at the far end
it just happens to be the bottom

Words from all over.
After a hearty breakfast our hosts thought we required
further fortification about two hours down the road.
We soon cut back on hearty breakfasts
not so much to eat this food,
rather just to cut back in intake.
I hope this fits the definition of designer chic.
It’s part of the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai.
As we cruised Glacier Bay this year we all
watched these ‘small’ pieces of ice
floating past the ship.
It wasn’t until I heard someone comment
on the length and size of a piece that I began
to think of ‘ the tip of the iceberg‘.
Then I saw one piece of ice which was
not moved by the ships bow wave.
Definitely 90% submerged!
This chunk of ice is a bit longer than some
and I only discovered the seals this morning.
Adult Alaskan seals are 5-6 feet long and tip the scales
at 180-285 pounds or 80-130 kilograms.
My guesstimate is that this small piece of ice
is around 20 feet long with much
more submerged than we see here.
I think all agree that this is the
embodiment of a prehistoric creature

Florence’s statue of
Perseus holding the Head of Medusa
aMay not be a classical Greek statue depicting…iconic.
However, when you find the head of the victim
one can certainly say there is a victor….and
an athlete of sorts!
With my farming wool classing background propagation
just had to be a photo of sheep 🙂
One way to cleave a cake…
and of course another way…
which only an eighteen year old would think of.
zoomorphic The eagle…the ancient Roman symbol of gods of the sky.
Marginal I am using a noun meaning of marginal this week:
a plant that grows in water close to the edge of land.

while Paula is on break
Could be anything, however…
Zoom out and we have moss on a seat.
while Paula is taking a break
These photos were to be used in
I think they probably fit both.
The flags represent two (of many) guides in the Vatican the day we visited.
And zoom out…and they are barely visible.
Considering Paula is taking a well-earned break
I decided to post another
Zoom In, Zoom Out.
It is a bit hard to define the zebra at this focal length.
However, this is another story altogether.
Although I have been told it is too busy.
I know I declared last week a tough selection of words.
However, this week it is the opposite end of the scale. 🙂
Nothing to dramatic about a fisherman
out to feed his family…unless…
the river is a bit wider than the first photo indicated…
and he was only a few metres from a waterfall.
And not just any waterfall, but what is considered, by some,
While they are not the widest waterfall
or the highest waterfall,
but with all dimensions taken into account,
including almost the largest flow rate,
they are considered to be
the biggest curtain of falling water in the world.
Surpassing the magnificent Niagara Falls and Iguacu Falls.
https://www.victoriafalls-guide.net/largest-waterfall.html) Spanning 1,700 metres and varying from
70 to 108 metres in height and listed as one of
UNESCO’s seven natural wonders of the world
it is the ideal place to
‘go fishin’.’ 🙂
Nearly forgot to add,
we visited in late September…the dry season
and there was only
the Devils Cataract and the Main Falls
with any quantity of water flowing over.
April Words 2018 Tough selection this month 🙂
Just before the sun peeped over the horizon. It was worth the drive and early rise
to see Dawn break.
Recycled This was my pride and joy in about 1987/88.
The floor is an old door and every other piece was found on our newly acquired farm.
Now all followers who could be known as MGW
will probably think the same as MGW did.
She thought even less when I loaded it on
the trailer and moved it 200 kilometers
to our new home.
The passing of Ginger in 2015 and the acquisition
of two young dogs early 2016 saw three kennels
constructed similar to this one.
Now everyone is happy.
