This drooping beauty graces the flower bed every spring.

Sunshine and clouds

As the setting sun shone through storm clouds (say that really fast!!),
I saw the city in a different light.
I really liked the way this buiding looked like it's made of mirrors.

Taken at the Sedwick County Zoo, in Wichita Ks. At the Zoo there's some posted information about how the American Indians found a use for every part of the buffalo, nothing went to waste.
These buffalo live in a time and place, where they are protected, fed and well cared for.
This is also a good landscape photo of a Kansas prairie.
Enlarge the photo and you may even see some people.

child on a monkey's back

The expression of "a monkey on my back" is often heard by those who have a burden weighing heavilly upon them.

If this gorilla could talk - it's expression might be about a child on a monkey's back. It's so nice, that the zoo has statues of animals that allow for children to play among a wild kingdom of safe bronze sculptures.

There's just something about curtains being blown about by gentle breezes, that appeals to me. Even when the curtains are old, faded, tattered and torn, such as these.
This photo was taken in the Gorilla Forest section of the Sedgwick County Zoo.
