Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge: Clouds

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge this week is ‘Clouds’.

Here are clouds hovering over the city of La Paz, the capital of of Bolivia. At an elevation of roughly 3,650 m (11,975 ft) above sea level, La Paz is the highest capital city in the world. We’d just flown into El Alto airport which is even higher, at an altitude of 13,323′ and I was definitely feeling the effects.

Clouds over lake Titicaca as we took the hydrofoil across the lake to Copacabana.

The clouds around the lighthouse in my old hometown of Umhlanga South Africa, where at sea level my body is happiest.

Here in Florida it’s pretty flat too. No wonder the clouds fall into the water at our local nature reserve.

Pull Up A Seat And Freeze Your Butt Off

XingfuMama’s ‘Pull Up A Seat Challenge Week 8’ had me thinking of really cool seats that I’ve seen and experienced.

Visiting Tahoe for Christmas 2018, I sat on this stone wall. The icy cold even found it’s way through my three layers of clothes.

I’m sure these two locals were used to the cold and probably met here most days for a chat.

On a previous Christmas visit to our son in New Jersey, this was the view through his family room window.

However, the coolest seat I ever sat on was this one in Antarctica.

Hoping you have a warm and pleasant seat to read this post.

Six Word Saturday: Oh, There You Are, Grandpa Igasho!

I’ve been a bit concerned for grandpa’s safety, as I haven’t seen his orange beacon up in the trees for about a week. A couple of days ago, he made a welcome appearance outside my bathroom window, so I knew he’d managed to steer clear of the Iguana Control man’s pellet gun.

I hope Igasho realizes that he really shouldn’t be ‘sticking his head above the parapet’ and goes back to his tree safe house.
