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
This newlywed couple and groomsmen jump for joy this afternoon. Is red the new wedding color now? Monkeys don’t know much about wedding fashion and certainly isn’t a wedding photographer. Way too much work involved with that. Happy returns.
This week, the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Street Life. Here is a shot of the Cafe de la Paix in Paris. Half the life of Parisians is spent in street cafes such as this. See more street life at the WordPress Daily Post.
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.
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.
While getting up close and personal with Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week, Kongo climbs into a hole in a Saguaro cactus tree near Tucson, Arizona. The monkey really likes the textures in cactus. The following images are some of his favorites.
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.
