WitsEnd-Weekly-PC-Places-To-Go

 

Next year we plan to be back in…

…South Africa and Botswana.

 

It will be our third trip and we hope to

see Meerkats in their natural habitat.

This one was guarding its territory

in the Melbourne Zoo.

These images will, I hope, thrill the rest of my extended

family who are also coming along for the ride.

 

While our first lion sighting was this pride,

on the shore of the Olifant River,

lion sightings were better later on.

 

We were about forty metres from

the action in my footer image.

After tiring of annoying mum,

the cubs came and watched us watching them

at a distance of around 20 feet.

WitsEnd-Weekly-PC-Simplicity

 

Two simple images which are

about seagulls.

It’s hard to obtain a ‘clean’ background

when seagulls decide to fly.

This one circled low past a shower/toilet block,

hence the creamy coloured background

My panning was as good as it could be.

 

Perhaps washed out a bit on the right. 

Or was it sunshine?

Still a simple abstract/minimalist photo.

For those with ‘arty’ eyes, who disagree,

you know now why I never

proclaim to be artistic! 😀

WitsEnd-Weekly-PC-Falling-Water

 

A catch up post.

Falling water in Banff’s…

 

…Cascade Gardens.

The ‘fall’ may not be any higher than the

Cascade Garden falls, however,

Huka Falls a few minutes out of Taupo,

New Zealand wins, hands down,

for power and quantity.

WitsEnd-Weekly-PC-Wheels

 


Not just a wheel on either side.Many cogs/wheels combine to ensure

that the seed is sown properly.

Now converted to seating outside so passers by

can sit, drink, eat and chat.

 

 

 

A much larger wheel.

The London Eye.

A great view just on dusk.

Geelong’s own version of the London Eye.

A somewhat smaller Ferris Wheel

on the Eastern Beach precinct..

WitsEnd-Weekly-PC-Unexpected-Beauty

 


Two continents…two unexpected beauties.

The Million Dollar view

at Banff,

Canada

One place I did not to expect to be so beautiful

was on the Somme Battlefields in France.

After having lived on a farm for most of my life…

 

I found the fields around the

Villers Bretonneux Australian Memorial…

unexpectedly beautiful.

WitsEnd-Weekly-PC-People

 


People…

…who need people…

If  only the iPad operators, in our group

stood this far back from the crowd,

instead of in front.

Will always remember these

two young ladies from Amsterdam.

After asking would they mind posing,

the girl on the left hit me for 5 Euro,

and kept straight face long enough

for mine to express the shock I felt,

before she burst out  laughing.

The villains 🙂

 

Mostly we have met…

 

 

or seen people helping others…

…in various ways.

Is the photographer helping

her model or vice versa?

The ‘shoot’ was for a tertiary

photography course.

Maybe they were studying

the same course.
