Woman on the Train and An Unbalanced Universe

This woman on the trolley reminded Kongo of that saying about ships passing in the night.  For just a moment eyes locked, time compressed, an ah ha moment occurred and then the train sped on to its next stop. (Click the image to blow it up and see what I mean)  Have these moments ever happened to you? Advertisements

Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Statues

  Ailsa’s theme this week is statues. Kongo has observed that statues are like photo magnets.  People with cameras can’t avoid snapping a picture. Kongo is the same way and the images in this post are some of his snaps during recent travels.  The wooden Indian statue above was captured in Ybor City, Florida.

Let Sleeping Ducks Stand

Kongo observed this drake mallard closely for several minutes earlier this week as it perched on a fountain in Balboa Park. It never opened its eyes. It never moved. Even when the monkey got quite close it never ruffled a feather. Kongo always thought ducks slept with their beak tucked under a wing or standing on one leg. Many ducks will sleep in the water to avoid predators. But this mallard seemed content to stand on two legs and sleep. Maybe it was just a duck nap. Travel safe. Have fun.

Walking her Boat

Kongo spied this determined voyager stalking around the fountain in Balboa Park yesterday afternoon. Three trips around then she returned Kon Tiki to the man who was renting them for donations.  Colorful dress choices, cowgirl boots, and that red hair are going to take this little girl somewhere. She had a look about her. Travel safe. Have fun.
