This week’s DP photo challenge is Extra(ordinary).
I must admit that Extraordinary is quite subjective.
Here is an image of a scorpion taken in Zimbabwe.
Isn’t it extraordinary?
It seems to be in an attacking mode or it is just frightened?
I get lots of inspiration from waterfalls.
They inspire me to think deep and appreciate the greatness of the Creator.
You can find many of them in my blog.
Here is a picture of a part of Victoria falls taken by my sister-in-law during her trip to Botswana.
I like the rugged rocks too!
Wild animals inspire us to think about the greatness of Nature.
Lion is supposed to be the king of wild animals.
We have been hearing about lions being killed in Africa.
Please stop killing them!
PS The picture was taken by my sister-in-law Jennie while travelling in Botswana.
This week’s photo challenge is Forces of Nature.
This is the first image came to mind.
Right up to now, I can’t think of a more appropriate image.
Water come tumbling down the Victoria falls.
It is just so powerful!
This is a view overlooking the Victoria waterfall.
Can you see how deep it plunges down?

PS Photo taken by my sister-in-law Jennie.
Here are 3 pictures from Botswana, Africa.
They show different scenes – all taken by my sister-in-law Jennie in her African travels.
First one was taken by the side of a river, showing a dreamy reflection.
Second one shows a dreamy waterfall, very clear stones protruding from the background with the waterfall appearing as thin films of water cascading down.
Third one was taken by the river bank when the sun has almost set.
Please enjoy :-)
Here are two images of babies with a lot of contrasts between them.
The first one was taken in Japan.
I seldom take pictures of pictures. However, I have taken this from a photo by the side of a photo shop in Shinkoku, Japan.
I was attracted by the expression on his face and the seemingly large head when compared with his body.
The second photo was taken by Jennie, my sister-in-law, in Botswana.
It is the image of a baby girl of the Bushman tribe – an image I have shown before.
There is so much contrast between the two – one with white skin, eye almost closed, well dressed while the other is almost naked (apart from the necklace), dark skin, large and hopeful eye. They are of course from different parts of the world and so far apart.
To me, one represents joy while the other represents hope – and we need them both, as they are the Future of Humanity!
