OWPC – Elephant

elephant

This post marks my return to posting. I’ve just come back from Myanmar where I had the opportunity of doing a river cruise down the Irrawaddy. It was unforgettable and awesome. One of the best vacations I’ve had these past few years (and I’ve been lucky to do a lot!)

This week’s One Word Photo Challenge is Elephant and here is my take. The photo was taken at a zoo on the island of Java a few years back.

It’s really great to be back home!

Simba : OWPC

I’m not a pet person and over the years I’ve only really had one pet and that was a Goldfish that was given to me by my Aunt when I was a kid. I remember travelling with it in a plastic bag in the back of the family red mini from Bristol to Chippenham.

But I have a wonderful family and a family has it’s own needs. So it was that we came to have Simba our much loved cat that stayed with us from 1996, just after he was born, for 9 years. He moved from the apartment to our new home when we moved to the suburbs in our own house, in 2000.

I tolerated him for many years until he gradually became a lot more than my wife and children’s cat to become the authentic family cat.

So I was sad that one day in 2005  he went out in the morning as he usually did, but never returned.

I hope he found somewhere where he was happy and looked after and if he met with an accident that he felt no pain.

He found a place in my heart and I miss him.

Camel : OWPC

Jennifer Nichole Wells organises a fabulous One Word Photo Challenge (OWPC) every Tuesday and today’s challenge is Camel.

I visited Las Palmas, Lanzarote, last November on a Canary Islands cruise and took these photos of a Camel excursion. To be honest I find them rather sad and would much prefer them being free to walk where they wish but they have become part of the landscape of the island apparently.

Invade : #tuesdayuseitinasentence

Invade

Mr Walthambottom said, “I don’t wish to invade” as he and Mrs Walthambottom, their four children, two dogs, a caged budgerigar, and seven suitcases spilled into the kitchen.

Here is #tuesdayuseitinasentence which is a lovely challenge.

Here are the prompt rules:
