WTF Friday – Which Way Africa Style (Part Four)


Once a week Cee from Cee’s Photography Blog runs a Which Way Photo Challenge – everyone is welcome to take part.

You can read the rules for the challenge here.


We came upon this bridge while travelling in Mocambique some years ago. It didn’t even look safe enough to walk across but we had to get to the other side …

On my last trip to Zimbabwe I happened across this accident. It was late afternoon and I didn’t want to be on the road after dark, so after an hour of sitting around waiting while nothing happened I decided to ‘bundu bash’ through the bush to get around the truck and continue my journey. Thankfully no one was injured.

One of my neighbours hung this hopeful sign on her vegetable garden fence.  I wonder if the hippos take any notice?

Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge (Day Three): WTF Friday


Thank you to Cee from Cee’s Photography Blog for inviting me to join in this challenge. Please pop over to her site and feast your eyes on some beautiful, inspiring pictures .

“The rules of Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo (It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph) and then nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge. Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command.”

Today I have invited Sue Vincent from the Daily Echo to join in the fun. Sue originally hails from my ‘Home From Home”, near the Peak District in the UK. Her posts are always thought-provoking and her photographs are stunning.

My post today is also a contribution to Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge which I try to take part in each Friday.

This challenge subject is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride them, as long as the way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.

There is never a topic to this challenge.  All you need have is the “way” visible and the main focus of your photo.


Which Way Africa Style (Part Three)

As I’ve mentioned before, we have recently experienced some unseasonal rain storms and I think these first two pictures speak for themselves.

This track, seen in Namibia, seems to lead to nowhere.

I have no explanation for this last one (except perhaps that dead maids are so inconvenient)!

(Not So) Wordless Wednesday: Which Way Namibia?


I meant to publish this post yesterday (Wordless Wednesday). However, after a series of thunderstorms our internet connection has been intermittent (as has our electricity supply!) so I didn’t manage to get away with being lazy and saying nothing about the photos.

These pictures continue with my Namibia theme and I thought them quite fitting for this week’s Which Way Photo Challenge.
