Photo a Day: Start with the letter G/ Gorillas

Gorillas have a pensive and curious look. It doesn’t seem like they would randonly attack unless provoked to anger or felt themselves in danger.

These are only my observations, and I’ll probably never find out from personal experience. The closest I’ll ever get is seeing them at a zoo, which I did last June at San Diego Safari Park.

When we reached the enclosure, gorillas, of various sizes, were eating frozen fruit treats. Just seeing their eating behavior told a lot about their temperaments, especially the largest gorilla covering his or her face with a tall leaf branch. Love the attitude!

Flower of the Day: Sunflower clusters, October 25, 2018

I never knew sunflowers grew in a bunch like this around a stem. Before realizing this, my eyes mainly gravitated towards the largest, bright bloom.

My perspective of these giant blooms was limited. The only sunflowers I’ve regularly encountered were the single long stems sold at grocery stores or flower shops. Also, my kids and I once planted a sunflower seed and only one flower bloomed.

Then one day, the top flower was snapped off leaving only a green stem sticking out of the pot. The culprit I surmise was a mischevious squirrel.

Untamed sunflowers in nature are wildly free and beautiful.

Cee’s Photo Challenge: Circles and Curves in Black &White

Something fun about buckets and pails. When my kids find an empty, round vessel around, they can’t resist: they have to at least try to sit in it, stand in it, squeeze into it, or put it on their heads.

The other day my kids helped me wash vegetables; when they were done, the rinsing bowl went missing. As you can see in the picture below, Ellis said she was a robot and started chasing her brother. Both took turns.

While I was washing something, Ellis decided to stand inside the pail.
