This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 6 images chosen by readers from my photo archives offering a nice balance between Arizona and South Africa. Thanks for the memories.
Jo chose #2807, “which is the date we actually leave site now.” That’s cause for celebration! And this fire truck was in the North Rim’s 4th of July celebration water parade.
Yogi chose #711, “cause that will be the date next Friday.” He works in gas and this is a guy from our electric company. Is there much difference? This guy was cutting big limbs off a tree killed from the Yarnell fire in my back yard before it was taken down. Oh how I wanted to go up that bucket. Can you imagine the view?
Melissa chose #521. Hippos hang out in water all day staying cool and out of the mid-day sun. It’s not easy to keep track of how many because they can stay under water around 5 minutes then only show eyes and nostrils when they emerge. How many can you count? I saw this group in the Mandwe Dam in Pilanesberg Game Reserve, South Africa.
Elaine chose #356 for the record breaking 3.56 inches of rainfall in June where she lives in Alaska. An unusually high March rainfall in Pilanesberg Game Reserve helped the grasses grow tall to feed young animals like this zebra.
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 9993 in a comment and maybe see your chosen image next week.
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.
