Weekly photo challenges: Happy & Animals

Today there are two photo challenges that I can meet with one photo:  the weekly WordPress challenge to find a Happy photo, and Ailsa’s challenge to show animal photos.  She has posted some excellent animal snaps to celebrate World Animal Day on 4th October:  http://wheresmybackpack.com/2012/10/05/travel-theme-animals/

My picture does for both challenges.  It comes from an album of WWII photos that my father brought home in 1941.  Beneath this one he wrote ‘Syrian Bint’.  The dictionary tells me that ‘bint’ is colloquial and perhaps offensive, but then, its origin is Arabic, meaning girl or daughter.  So I’ll leave it as it is.

She’s beautiful.

    • Well, you’re very nice. The creativity in this post is in using only one photo because my supply of war/1940s images is running short. If I stretch it out I might make it to the end of the year.

    • Oh thank you. There are a lot of photos to choose from, so it’s not hard. But it’s fun and I’m glad others, like you, enjoy it too.
