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?

I can still feel the goosebumps generated

when I captured this image.

I think it was because there was only

as it rises each morning.

scurried into their anthill home. 

Every now and again some would

pop their heads out to see if I was still there.   

After half an hour of waiting for them

to emerge from the safety of home,

with declining results, I decided to stop wasting

my time, and have a good look at the anthill.


Lo! And behold they had an escape route planned

long before I came along.

On our last morning in Africa (2013),

I woke earlier than usual

to the sound of breaking branches.

After my eyes became used to the light,

or to the lack thereof,

an elephant emerged out of the gloom,

no doubt on its way to the

Sausage Tree Safari Camp

During our visits to Africa…



…we easily sighted…


…a diverse range of wildlife.


Whether at Rome’s

Trevi Fountain…

…or the Colosseum, there is

huge diversity among visitors.


Melbourne has…

…a diverse…

…range of buskers…

…both in type and age.
