Theme – Cool

This is a street performer in New Orleans – for 15 minutes he never moved a muscle.  I thought he was “cool”

Theme – Distant

I couldn’t quite grasp what would capture the theme “Distant”, but do you see that large bird in the distant?  That’s what the guide said to me before I took this picture on my safari in Sri Lanka.  Not sure what kind of bird it was, but it was far away…

Theme – Crowded

This was also in Singapore

Theme – Peaceful

People praying at a temple in Thailand (praying for peace, I hope)

Theme – Portrait

My most recent trip was to the French Quarter Festival in New Orleans – lots of face apinting…

Theme – Pair

Two white striped tigers from Indonesia

No one knows exactly why tigers are striped, but scientists think that the stripes act as camouflage, and help tigers hide from their prey. The Sumatran tiger has the most stripes of all the tiger subspecies, and the Siberian tiger has the fewest stripes. Tiger stripes are like human fingerprints; no two tigers have the same pattern of stripes.

Theme – Passage of Time

These are ruins of an ancient monastery located in Sri Lanka
