This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 11 images chosen by readers from my photo files including a lot of low number oldies.
Mary Lou chose #2242. Sure glad this big scorpion is made of metal. It, along with many other larger than life sculptures, created by Ricardo Breceda can be seen around Borrego Springs California.
Pam and John chose #9581. One of very few trees on the trail to the Wave. The dark crack at high center is where you enter the actual Wave. And although it is awesome, the entire landscape is spectacular.
Diane and Nigel chose #224. My first rim to rim hike across Grand Canyon in May 2008. It was a forever ways up from the bottom. Being it was Cinco de Mayo, and I needed some motivation, I repeated a chant to my labored steps to get me to the top, “Crusty, salty, Margaretta.” Then I was entirely too exhausted to even drink one when I topped out.
Yogi forgot his number so gets #85 for the number of words in his comment last week. This is an example of one of the many stained glass pieces I made back in the 1980s while living in East Wenatchee, Washington.
Donna chose #467. Another shot from hiking in Grand Canyon. This time from November 2010 looking down from the South Kaibab trail off the South Rim.
Jodee and Bill chose #7050. A rather different mode of transportation in South Africa than we are used to seeing. Don’t think it would pull my 5th-wheel.
Jeff chose #5713, “in my series of odd…” You might find the size of this fossilized clam shell odd. But it was only one of many unique fossils seen at the Mzamba site along the Wild Coast of South Africa in 2014.
Sherry and David chose #9, “since it is now 9 days and counting that I’ve had this dang nabbed virus.” They get another dang nabbed little kid picture, me at seven years old in 1961 in Hinsdale, Illinois taken in school. Hope you’re feeling better.
Barb chose #3, “you and me and Kim sitting around visiting.” I wasn’t even three years old in this 1955 shot of me drinking bath water.
Sallie and Bill chose #208, “my post office box number in the resort.” I had no post office box back in 2001 while living on the road and selling usually at flea markets. But this shot, one of two in a panorama, is of the Okanogan Barter Fair and that’s my old Pace Arrow motorhome in the first row far right.
My choice from last year’s visit to Valley of Fire State Park because that’s where I am right now so this is a teaser for more to come.
