This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 6 images chosen by readers out of my photo archives. Now that I’m back in Arizona, and have access to All my photos, the images will be mixed up a bit more than exclusively South Africa. Yet there’s many more of those to come as well.
Sallie chose #1579, “For no reason. Just because it’s not a multiple and doesn’t have a 6 in it.” From the Grand Lodge on the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park the multiple views provide more than 6 peaks in almost any direction. Looking southeast during monsoon season clouds hanging in multiple small canyons highlight the ridges and temples.
Bibi chose #2, which takes us back to 1997. She likes to explore thrift shops, second hand stores, and presumably fleamarkets too. Well I used to sell at fleamarkets with the help of my trusty companion Carson. He’s just a puppy in training here in Carson, Washington where we lived and sold.
Sherry chose #4644 and she likes to walk, hike and bike so has a great pair of legs. Much better looking than these giraffe’s legs seen at Kruger National Park, South Africa. but I’ll wager it could out run her.
Yogi chose #321123 as “my number for next month.” Being I have no numbers that big I divided it in half for the two weeks left in the month. #321 shows snow melt along the road to the entrance station of the North Rim when I arrived in April 2012. I have no idea what the snowpack was this winter so will just be surprised at the conditions when I return the end of this April. Sometimes there’s still lots of snow.
Jo chose #3500, “no reason.” If she has a reason to travel between Nelspruit and St Lucia during her May holiday she may see this view along the way. I think we were caught in construction traffic when I shot this view.
Diane chose #9966. She is currently traveling in France yet in the past visited Pilanesberg Game Reserve in South Africa so I think she’ll like seeing this Terrapin I saw at the birdhide along the Mankwe Dam. This is the same species of ‘attack turtles’ encountered at Kruger National Park so I kept my distance.
My choice… As I continue to label the 1000s of photos taken during the last three months touring South Africa feelings of warm memories flood my senses. Everybody loves the animals. We speculate on what they are thinking. I could watch them for hours—maybe even days if it was possible. We all live on the same planet along with all other life. Do they wonder about us? Taken at Kruger National Park.
Thank you for joining in Foto Friday Fun where readers choose a number from my archives and I share the corresponding photo and a story. To join in the fun for
next week leave a number between 01 and 9997 in a comment and maybe see your chosen image next week. And now that I have access to my all my photos the images
shouldn’t be only from South Africa.
Do you have a favorite from this week?
I have so many photos to share from this recent journey in South Africa. So as I label them I’ll post every 100th image on the Geogypsy Facebook page where you can follow along.
