Are you a back, side or stomach sleeper? Anna texted me and sent this photo and said the lion is lying the same way as Henry (Airedale Terrier) Maura (almost 5) her sister, asked her other grandma if this is how she sleeps!
See the different positions and suggestions at the Mayo Clinic site about sleeping positions. Back sleeping is supposedly good for back pain relief but not so great for snorers.
Photographed by guest blogger, granddaughter Anna (10) , at the Columbus Zoo Wednesday afternoon. It’s always fun for me when my family contributes to the blog effort.
Last week I was teaching the HS photography students about the Rule of Thirds and even made a grid on a transparency so they could see the lines splitting up the picture frame , get the idea. Information on how they could compose the strongest photograph by knowing about this concept of composition.
The Rule of Thirds comes to mind immediately when I look at Anna’s photo. And she wasn’t even in the class.
So went to check out The Lion Sleeps Tonight, original by Solomon Linda 1939 but covered by many famous singers and groups

Culled from the day’s catch- didn’t photograph any food making today but here is what I photographed on Saturday.
School’s out for the summer so I’m not in my home territory. Most days I shoot photographs as I drive around the city. But I am seeing different scenery these days. We went to a T-ball game on Saturday morning.
Four Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies fell out of the van onto the pavement and their bright orange caught my eye but I thought, nah, four bitty snack crackers are not worth a photograph since we have to get to the game and haul the fold-up chairs and the bag of snacks for the team. I mean another day I could do a Snack Cracker still life but we were in a rush.
Imagine my surprise when we returned to the van. The neon orange obliterated. Ants working hard to live.
and a close up detail
and then as we pulled out of the school parking lot by the baseball fields, there was a church parking lot and a scene I wanted to photograph. This is when you are probably annoying to your daughter-in-law but she doesn’t mind and pulls over by the dumpster and I got out and took about 4 quick shots on the gray day.
and the detail. My DIL asked if I wanted to come back and pick it up to take back home since it wasn’t broken!
A quick trip to the zoo and the reptile house. The kids got a chance to touch the Rosy Boa. I photographed the Pythons devouring rabbits but it is too graphic.
The Columbus Zoo has a lovely 1914 Carousel, restored. The youngest 3 grandkids took a ride.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Flowers. This is unretouched, shot with a 70-200L series lens. Nice bokeh in this image. The bee just happened to be in front of a light petal. Photographed as we left the Columbus Zoo a couple of weeks ago.
Penny the Golden Doodle keeps cool in the brick fireplace at home.
Beco (long e) was one today. A first birthday party was held at the Columbus Zoo. We got there late in the afternoon. Saw the carved ice sculpture but not the creation of it. A piece of the trunk had broken off. He’s an Asian elephant.
