#TBT - Pre-DSLR - Africa - Another bucket list journey before owning a decent camera.
We took a "safari" through the national preserve in Nairobi, which covers almost 30,000 acres, and the animals roam freely.
Our guide stopped our vehicle in the middle of the preserve somewhere. He grabbed his rifle, slung it over his shoulder, and announced that we were walking to the river to see hippos. He pointed to a cement block building and said it was the public "facilities" for anyone who needed it. I and 3 other ladies carefully made our way to the building, and took turns "standing guard" in the open doorway. As I stood looking out into the bush, I heard a crashing sound in the trees above me. I looked up to see a large giraffe bending slowly and gracefully toward the branches above the building. I stood speechless as he walked by, as if in slow motion. Unforgettable experience.
"I will be the first burning thorch"... said Prague born Jan Palach when he decided to sacrifice himself in protest of Soviet invasion, setting himself on fire. He passed away on Jan 19th 1969. This small plaque to commemorate both Palach and Jan Zajic, another student who self-immolated, is situated in the base of the Statue of St. Wenceslas, as a physical reminder of his action, which, at least for a little while gave a sense of hope that communist oppresion will come to it's end...#janpalach#palach#anniversary#inmemoriam#ripjanpalach#freedem#prague#memory#lifethroughmylens#czech#freedomfighter # #ipreview @preview.app
This @dottiesdresses dress is about as dreamy as they come! I just adore this new style we have one of both the newbies and my fave is whichever one she’s wearing!! Opening this week, and choosing is gonna be tough with the gorgeous dresses and fabrics to choose from... and with the sneak peak of the blouse last night 😍
I really need to get my butt up on a non-gym day and sit thru day break on this bridge with my Nikon! Cell phone doesn’t capture it’s total beauty! #lifethroughmylens#watercolors 💜 @savannah_brayton hurry up! I need a companion with a love for looking thru the lens😉📷💕

This guy has been super cranky for days and I don’t know why so I’m guessing maybe teeth? 🙄 -
He got this outfit for Christmas and I love it but it is 9-12 months, how does it fit my (nearly) 5 month old baby?! #why#stopgrowingsofast#21weeksold#nearly5months#staaaap
