Look up again #2

I can’t resist. After thinking about stars and the future, I thought I’ll put up another photo for the theme. I don’t think there are any rules about putting up more than one? Anyway, here goes . . . . Star trails. This one was taken just last week closer to home. And so once…

Just look up

For me, a star filled night sky inspires me about the future. In the city, it is hard to see the stars. Too much light pollution and distraction. And most of the time, I forget to look up. Then when we get away to the country side and the night sky is clear, my jaws…

From all over the world

From all over the world, they come and place their locks of love. Every lock is of a different shape, size and colour. And yet they all symbolize the one thing. The one thing that is universal in all of us. . . . .  Love. Love locks on Pont de l’Archevêché, the narrowest bridge…

How to stop time

I like the theme of this weeks photo challenge. I like Lignum Draco’s photo on time. And I like what Matt Haig wrote on time. Not that long ago I was in France and whilst walking through the Louvre one early morning, I caught this photo of a lady sitting in the corner reading. I…

The Eye of the Cheetah

The fastest of the land animals. Phenomenal acceleration (outpacing a Lamborghini Huracan) and a physique honed for chasing down its prey, here she is, her keen eyes scanning the horizon. In our jeep, she would have run circles around us so thankfully, we stopped further away, taking care not to get any closer. She certainly…

Break Dancing

Achieving what you set out to do. My photo for “victory” this week. The boy finally getting it all together after weeks of practice and performing his move at the Christmas spectacular last year. Loved every minute of it as they hip hop’ed to Jingle Bell Rock. WPC : Victory

Keeping on the Moroccan Theme

I thought I would keep my Moroccan theme going since this weeks photo challenge fits nicely with it. To this end, we found the handiwork of some of the craftsmen quite amazing. Lots of things are still handmade. But when you see the ornate detail that is evident in Morocco, it is easy to understand…

The Kasbah

Travel itself is quite a treat for me but every once in a while, we get some thing extra special and then it is a real treat. To this end is the magical Kasbah Tamadot located in the high Atlas mountains of Morocco. It is like an oasis in the desert. Owned by Sir Richard…

Toy Mouse House

A friend of ours made this toy mouse house for her niece. I don’t know how long it took her but it is simply gorgeous.(just look at those tiny teacups and sandwiches!)  It looks like the ‘comfiest’ house ever. I just wished I had taken better photos! I can’t think of anything else that would…
