Weekly Photo Challlenge: Split-Second Story

Jandals Too Big!

“Jandals Too Big!”

I have taken the split-second story challenge literally where a moment is missed in the blink of an eye.  In “Jandals too big!” above, this young toddler falls backwards as he tries to manoeuvre his little feet inside some borrowed jandals (jandals is Kiwi slang for flip-flops, slippers, thongs, slides, zori etc).

The two images below are re-posts of mine which I believe fit this weeks challenge.

“Irony” (from Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says) was taken on the busy streets of Ho Chi Minh City in southern Vietnam. The white painted lines on the road clearly indicate that this is a pedestrian crossing which a man is crossing on his motorcycle.  In the two weeks we had spent travelling through Vietnam, I had never used, nor had I seen anyone use a pedistrian crossing yet we would literally step into busy oncoming city traffic (in what could be described as organized chaos) to cross roads – and therein lies the irony.

Australia’s wide open spaces, beautiful beaches and blue skies can be taken for granted, the image “Sand Dune Kangaroo” (from Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting) reminds us that we share these environments with native animals. I was unaware that the kangaroo was watching  us take an evening stroll on the beach.  I turned, camera in hand. Click. Hop hop. Gone.
