This week’s Foto Friday Fun includes 11 images chosen by readers picking a number out of my photo archives. Weighing in pretty heavy with South Africa. Maybe that’s because I’ve been sending out the SA vibes for this winter’s journey.
Rick chose #2706, “It is my street address from my family’s home for 50+ years. It is one of those numbers I’ll never forget.” And I’ll never forget the almost endless views from Swartberg Pass in South Africa.
Firefly chose #1234 as a random number. Well turkey vultures soar more than randomly over the Weaver Mountains, whether they’re burned or not. I look forward to hiking there again in the spring when new growth returns through the ashes.
Sherry chose #2174. Although she’s been enjoying the lush forests of Maine I think she’ll also like this sweet little garden of succulents on the front porch at Ganora Guestfarm in South Africa. BTW, thanks for the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse.
Melissa chose #1960, “The year I was born.” This sunrise showed the birth of a new day with the added excitement of dolphins while I visited Tsitsikamma National Park at Storms River Mouth South Africa.
Mary Beth also chose #1234, “because it is all in a row—like my ducks should be.” No ducks seen around these sandstone cliffs in a side canyon of Cottonwood Canyon in the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument in Utah. But if you look closely, the rock might in the middle sort of reminds me of a short-billed duck.
Diane chose #2 911, for two of her second favorite model of Porsche. Being she has such expensive tastes and is originally from South Africa I’m sure she’ll appreciate this photo. I actually went in feeling safe as I’m not a diamond fan, but, it was my birthday.
Elaine chose #1001, “for the 1001 Arabian Night Stories, as you weave for us the stories of your travels through life.” Well maybe the reason I weave has to do with it not taking much wine for me to feel tipsy. But I just couldn’t resist a nip with lunch at Storms River Mouth, Tsitsikamma National Park in South Africa. Very good wine produced there.
Teri chose #1118, “my birthday Nov 18.” Don’t suppose I’ll ever celebrate my end of March birthday, or hers, at Crazy Jug Point in the Kaibab National Forest on the North Rim because of the possibility of snow. But it is one of my favorite canyon viewpoints during the summer.
Arija chose #3333, “for no reason at all, just because.” This meerkat had very good reason to act as sentry for the mob because there could be predators about in Addo Elephant National Park in South Africa.
Bibi chose #3910, “the number of my grandmother’s house where I spent many happy years.” I could spend many happy years enjoying this view from Gydo Pass above Prince Albert’s Hamelet in South Africa. The only problem would be in the winter when snow covers the peaks.
Kathie chose #2145, “the street number of a house I use to live in in Colorado.” She is an avid birder so I’m sure will enjoy this seagull from Tsitsikamma National Park. Maybe I’ll even get an ID.
My choice for this week was taken yesterday at the canyon although these classics are from another age.
Thank you for playing along with Foto Friday Fun. It’s been a real trip to dig through my archives and pull the stories from my memories. For next week leave a number between 1000 and 5000 in a comment and maybe see your chosen image next week.
