This week’s Foto Friday Fun includes 6 images chosen by readers picking a number out of my photo archives.
Firefly chose the random number 702. Last week his photo choice was a hyena, which he’s never seen even though he lives in South Africa. But I know he’s seen plenty of elephants at Addo Elephant National Park near where he lives, although this elephant was seen in Kruger National Park.
Cheryl chose #777 because, “I’ll never get this number on a slot machine.” Well a little over that many years ago the Ancestral Puebloans (formerly called the Anasazi) lived and farmed on the Walhalla Plateau and this is what remains of a small community. This site is accessible to visitors on the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.
Melissa chose #666 because, “it really is his [husband] birthday!! June 1966 and yes, I did rob the cradle by 6 years! We joke about both all the time.” Ravens are the true robbers around Grand Canyon, and elsewhere. A member of the Corvid family, they are exceedingly smart and even know how to open zippers if there’s food involved.
Barb chose #90 because, “my f-i-l is visiting us and that’s his age!” I bet you’ll be able to show your f-i-l wildflowers like this right in your backyard. These almost stunted looking blooms are found at high elevation all over the Kaibab National Forest. I saw these at Marble View a few years back and bet they are blooming there now as well.
Diane chose #899 as she’s “Running out of Porsche models.” This lizard is stream lined like some Porsches and even shows some flashy color. I spotted it at one of the few overlooks in Kruger National Park where you can get out of your car. Guess no one was worried about lizard attacks.
Arija chose #707, “the room my poor Prof is stuck in in the nursing home. Being a meteorologist, he also had a pilot’s licence though not for 707s. He used to take groups of students up over a variety of terrains so they could experience the fact that the atmosphere is very dynamic and can toss a small plane about like a cork in a bucket.” Now that’s the kind of Prof to inspire students.
This father and son team of Hopi dancers demonstrated tossing and creating patterns with the hoops. They have performed many times at the North Rim’s Native American Heritage Days coming up on August 8 & 9.
Thank you for playing along with Foto Friday Fun. It’s so much fun to dig through my archives and pull the stories from my memories. This week changing it up a bit and asking you to choose a number between 1954, the year I was born, and 2013. Let’s see where this takes us. Leave your number in a comment and maybe see your chosen image next week.
Which one is your favorite from this week?
