52 Weeks of Life Seen Through My Eyes

Ida's Photo Theme Challenge


Week 22 #16. Frame within a Frame

On our way to a game park in South Africa, I spotted a derelict house on an embankment overlooking the highway. My sister pulled over and waited while I scrambled up a steep hill to capture a snippet of African graffiti on either side of the crumbling doorway of what appeared to have once been a Ndebele homestead. A glimpse of the undulating mountains through the disintegrating building peeked my interest…a frame within a frame.

My photographic escapade did not come without a small price. A spill at the end of my descent resulted in torn jeans and a skinned knee. Now I can sport the distressed denim look.

Week 21 #52. Yellow

After a very lengthy absence from my blog, my latest offering is a photo I took while visiting a game park in South Africa. A female white lion was lazily reclining in the grasses and wildflowers (weeds?), gazing at me while I attempted to capture her image between the stems and blades of grass. It was quite a thrill being so close and having those pale eyes meeting mine with a mass of yellow partially obscuring her powerful face.
