Black and White Challenge.


I would have thought a higher fence

would have been more appropraite for

South African Safari Camps. 

However, this one at

Sauasage Tree Safari Camp

seemed to work.


This is the type of fence that I have spent

a life time building and removing…


…and these knots are how we join fence wire.

-for more than one – benches, couches,





of a colour produced by mixing red, yellow, and blue,
as of dark wood or rich soil.

Many of the tracks around

Sausage Tree Safari Camp reserve

were lined with dry brown grass of

Greater Kruger National Park.


These last photos are of two planter boxes

I made it earlier in the year.

The above box is still in my shed waiting

for an Acacia shrub to stop living.


This one was put to use fairly quickly. 

Both have slightly different shades

of brown in their wood. 

The colour is accentuated by several coats

of oil and lacquer








the front part of a person’s head from the forehead to the chin,
or the corresponding part in an animal.

paths trails

a path through a countryside, mountain, or forest area,

often made or used for a particular purpose.


These track in Sauage Tree Safari Camp grounds…

…were reminiscent of many tracks I had travelled

on my way to work in New South Wales. 

Once off the road I was faced with criss crossing trails

and only felt better about it when my

travelling companion said

…don’t worry they all lead to the (Wool) Shed.


After several hours seemingly following

old wheel ruts through Botwswana’s

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans…


…we eventually arrived at our destination,

…younger days.

For  today’s challenge,

I have taken some licence with the word



What’s the matter with kids today?


Why can’t they be like we were?


Perfect in every way

Oh! What’s the matter with kids today?
