This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 7 images chosen by readers from my photo archives. As I just finished labeling over 10,000 photos from three months in South Africa these choices evoke recent memories and call me to return.
Elaine chose #621 for “the summer solstice.” She watched the midnight sun in Alaska that night but her photo is of a different sky phenomenon. I actually stayed up until midnight photographing the April 15th lunar eclipse from Yarnell, Arizona.
Bo chose #4157, “spells dog in numbers.” And she just adopted a dog which is very cool. Instead of a dog her photo shows an alert mother Kudu with her youngster at Kruger National Park, South Africa. Check out her Big ears all tuned in.
Sherry chose #234. There is a small facility In Pilanesberg Game Reserve with a restaurant where we frequently ate breakfast, a small shop where we even more frequently bought Fruttare Passion Fruit flavor (frozen on a stick), and most important a bathroom. A salt lick has been placed not far from the back deck which entices a variety of animals and provides a show for visitors. With such long legs and neck the giraffe is put in a vulnerable position here and when drinking water.
Yogi chose #550 for “how many miles we drove yesterday.” He and Sweetie were beginning their vacation. I saw these Impalas from camp at Roodeplaat Dam at the end of my three month vacation in South Africa.
MaryBeth chose #80, “My secret.” So now I’m curious as to what is her secret. I was also curious about this dragon fly seen on the roof of a bird hide in Pilanesburg Game Reserve, South Africa.
My choice this busy week of Star Party on the North Rim is astronomer Lori Prause’s introduction slide and she took us on an excellent adventure around the solar system. Most of the nights have been clear and perfect for star gazing which I haven’t done yet. But I’ve been taking photos of presenters every night and planned to visit the telescopes last night but it turned cloudy and windy. Hoping to get lucky tonight as I don’t have to work tomorrow and could stay up late. Plus I’d like to try some night shots.
