IN A NEW POST PUBLISHED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE “THREE” PHOTOS TO TELL A STORY
The Saint Louis Zoo actually has a herd of ten Indian elephants. And last summer I set out to photograph the entire herd. While they do have spacious exhibit enclosures the herd has to be split up when on public display.
RAJA, the only male in the herd and the father of four daughters has his own private stomping grounds with pools and water falls.
And here are the AUNTIES … the other females in the herd who share in raising the young ones.
Did I manage to capture the entire herd on my (five) photos? No, I missed one. In addition to the public viewing areas seen in these photos, the herd also has a private ELEPHANT WOODS that simulates the jungle areas where the elephants once lived in the wild.
Sorry, I couldn’t tell my story in just three photos.

It was Valentine’s Day …
Five years ago today. And I was looking for a friend.
And a sweet young girl named Sally caught my eye,
Since I already had a best friend named Sally.
I asked if she would be my Renee.
And today she is my Treasure.
And I think the ball is hers!

In other words, the background would be more interesting than the foreground featuring me. By the way, the background painting is by a friend of mine and the figure in it was supposedly inspired by myself standing on the corner waiting for a bus. That seems to be the story of my life … waiting for a bus in the background.
But if left alone to the PHOTO BOOTH feature of my iMac, I would probably end up mugging around something like this.
Not pretty, but it is me … being me … or someone who thinks he’s being me. Enjoy them while you can … I usually try to keep the Hitchcock within contained within.

THIS WEEK, IN A POST CREATED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO WITH A WINDOW.Andy Goldsworthy’s STONE SEA (twenty-five limestone arches) in the lower level courtyard of the Saint Louis Art Museum formed by the original 1904 building and the new 2013 East Building Addition seen through the windows of the addition walkway. Each of five windows provides a different view of the sculpture piece.
Last spring I was weeding the front garden beds, and I noticed one little weed that stood out. It had thick, richly sculpted furry leaves and a very tiny trumpet-shaped flower. I have no idea what it was. But it was the ONE that caught my eye and I took a photo of it. Then I pulled it out anyway.
