Encounters with myself … others … Life !

Changing Guards and Pelicans on street lights …

Changing Guards

These brilliant red Ceiling Wax palm trunks looking like sentinels with rifles at ready, reminded me of the childhood chorus :

The changing guards of Buckingham Palace

Christopher Robin went down with Alice

Alice is marrying one of the guards

“A soldier’s life is terribly hard,” says Alice !

Obviously one of the songs of the British colonies huh 🙂   Wondering now whether Alice deserted Mr. Robin for a guard, Wiki advised that Christopher Robin was a children’s character named by A. A. Milne (of Winnie the Pooh Fame) after his own son.  Interesting !

And interesting how these red barks took me back through the years to the song.  Posting in response to Photrabloggers picture on palm fronds (last week 😦  )

For this weeks challenge – these pelicans perched atop the street lights were too beautiful to pass by – so I had to click even though I was driving  (yeah dangerous). It was a beautiful sight though the pictures are not that great. (I did say I was driving right 🙂 )

    The pop of red colour out of that greenery is looking nice. You were driving and clicking?! But you captured the pelicans anyway. Dangerously cool 😉

      Yes I was. No room to pull over but I did slow down. Fortunately not much traffic at that time 🙂
