Photo Hunt - Natural and Joy

Joy in looking and comprehending is nature's most beautiful gift ~ Albert Einstein

Gattina's Photo Hunting - Natural

Natural - defined as "existing in or caused by nature"
So in keeping with Christmas, here are some "natural or nature" pics of something we associate with Christmas - Reindeer

taken at Universal Studios, LA and at the Bronx Zoo, NY

Sandi's Photo Hunt - Joy

The Joy Snowman was made by my aunt and I've had it for nearly 20 years. It's one of my favourite decorations and has seen every Christmas at my house.


FMTSO - Layers

The prompt this week at FMTSO is "Layers"

So here is my interpretation - all pics are taken at the Natural History Museum, New York.

Thursday Challenge - Shoes

The Thursday Challenge this week is "Shoes" (Boots, Sandals, Dress Shoes, Wooden Shoes, Stiletto Heels, Horse Shoe .....)

So here is my contribution. This is a picture of the Shoe or Boot House at the Kamala Nehru Park in Mumbai, India.  Probably based on the nursery rhyme "There was an old woman who lived in a shoe".
Great fun to climb in and out of it (as kids of course!).

Thursday Challenge - Communication

Communication -  (Talking,  Sign Language,  Telephone,  Technology ...)
 is the topic this week at Thursday Challenge

I don't know why Dolphins kept "communicating" with me so I dug out some of my Dolphin pics from my Las Vegas trip some years ago.

Here are the Dolphins at the Mirage communicating with their trainers:
