This week’s Foto Friday Fun features images chosen by eight readers from my photo files from desert to sea, wildlife and art.
John and Pam chose #7531, a view they might recognize at Dome Rock BLM near Quartzsite, Arizona taken 3-9-15. Gotta’ love those saguaro.
Sherry chose #2093, a perfect choice as she loves to be by the sea, especially at sunrise which I rarely catch. Yet while traveling in South Africa I saw many sunrises. This one taken at Tsitsikamma National Park 3-5-13.
Donna chose #99. This gorgeous beaded vest was displayed in the museum at Mesa Verde National Park when I worked there in 2005.
Yogi chose #87, which was taken in 1987 and thus the poor quality. I made stained glass art for many years and at one point created a wildlife series. This one was purchased by a resort near Mt. St. Helens.
Mary Lou chose #2069. When traveling with Joan, aka The Bug Lady, we stop to look at the most amazing things like this Green Milkweed Locust along Nieu-Bethesda Road taken 2-14-13.
Karen chose #2577, “which was my address when I met Jim.” I met, but didn’t marry, this marvelous ostrich while staying at the Old Mill Lodge in Outdshoorn, south Africa. The lodge is also an ostrich and sheep ranch, plus I saw a reindeer at dinner that night, while I ate ostrich.
Diane chose #9999. An eclectic collection displayed in my RV home back in 2012. The artifacts, fossils and rocks were either bought at a yard sale like the stone axe, or collected on private land. The miniature wedding pot on the right belonged to my mother but I have no provenance.
My choice from Sunday’s drive to Page, Arizona for Bill’s birthday lunch. We stopped at Wahweap overlook off SR89 and could almost envision the shrunken Lake Powell to be the true Colorado River as we gazed east to the far off Navajo Mountain.
Please join in for next week by leaving a number between 1 and 9999 in your comment below. A big thanks to everyone for playing along with Foto Friday Fun and allowing me to share these photographs and memories.
