Readers’ wildlife photos

I importune you in the bowels of Ceiling Cat to send me your wildlife photos!

Today’s contributor is Joe Routon with some lovely travel photos. Joe’s captions are indented and you can click on the photos to enlarge them.

Mt. Popa is a volcanic formation in Myanmar. On top, 2,500 feet above, sits a Buddhist shrine and monastery.


A street photograph.

When I’m in a foreign country I’m always on the lookout for interesting looking people to photograph on the street. A few years ago, when my wife and I were in Budapest, we were walking near the Parliament building when I spotted two young women. Not being able to speak Hungarian, I pointed to my camera to indicate that I’d like to take a photo. They nodded, so I took several. When I finished I asked them, enunciating slowly so they could understand what I was saying, “Where . . . are . . . you . . . girls . . . from?” One looked up at me, smiled, and said, “Florida.”

  1. Lovely photos! Your story reminds me of the time many years ago when I walked into a McDonalds in Brussels, did a masterful (to me) job of ordering in French, only to have the counter person ask me in perfect English, “Will there be anything else?”
