One Word Sunday: Body

When I saw Debbie’s ‘One Word’ for this Sunday, ‘Body’, I immediately thought of a body of water. I have many photos which show a body of water, but this one is quite unique in that it also shows a very fit human body in the foreground. On one of our walks along the beachfront in Umhlanga, we happened upon this athletic body who was “just cooling down” after his three-mile morning run. He very kindly agreed to make an extra effort and repeat the performance so that I could get a photo. He told me that he was now fifty-years-old and at one time an Olympic gymnast. He kept fit by not eating junk food and exercising regularly. Some of you may have seen this on my blog a few years ago, but it’s definitely worth a second look.

I hope you’re all having a happy and healthy Sunday.

  1. That was so lovely of the guy to give you a repeat performance so you can get a photo. And you certainly got the shot. He does sound and look very fit – and worked hard for it πŸ™‚

  3. hi S
    i missed this the first time around so it reminds me how
    we do need to share some great photos a few times
    and – good star for the two body ideas you gave us here

    and he was 55? looks 20!

  4. Most definitely worth a second look! OOps, looks like someone beat me to saying that! Still true nevertheless! Hope you’re doing well. I’m just barely managing to dig myself out from under the dark, brooding skies of the past 4 years, with the last few months being the worst! Hopefully we’ll manage to recover.
    Hope you and your family are all doing well and staying healthy!

    • Thanks, Gunta. I know how you feel about the past four years, but at least we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hope it’s not the headlamps of an oncoming train in another four years. 😯 I’ll feel better when we can get the vaccine and a couple of air tickets to see family and friends in the UK and South Africa.Take good care my friend. We got this far. πŸ™‚ xxx

  5. Excellent photo of an awesome effort!! I thought of “body” of water but as you know, didn’t go that way. I also thought of doing a photo of all the books of one of the authors I like as a “body” of work, but thought both those might require explanation and I always try to stick with the one word (not that I’m criticizing you for your explanation, I hasten to add!) πŸ™‚


  6. I feel exhausted just thinking of a three-mile morning run, never mind the cool down. This is a FABULOUS photo, Sylvia. I am imagining being on he beach with you, feeling the sunshine and warmth. Ahhhhh…..
