I LOVE City Life

I went to drop off the sink I'd won at the local Habitat for Humanity Re-store this morning. I just had no use for it at all and thought better donate it to someplace that can use it, than have it sit in my basement.

I rounded a corner and there was an elephant standing there. Just kinda hanging out, waiting for the circus to begin later on today. So, I parked the car and went over to shoot a couple of photos. I got into the habit of carrying a camera with me all of the time a couple of years ago, and am always glad that I have it.

I don't think I've been that close to an elephant before and was intrigued to see his skin and eyes and especially his trunk.

I love city life - you never know what's around the corner!


  1. What a special treat! I love elephants; they have such soulful eyes.

  2. I love elephants and have seen them in the wild, and while I can appreciate your surprise, I hate that they are used in circuses. They have such an elaborate social system that really relies on family structure.

    Sorry to be a downer--I really enjoy your blog and your writing.
