Words that flow...

Words and images - powerful elements of our everyday life. Most of the time we take them for granted, but sometimes something happens to make you aware of how important they are... and how thankful you are to have the opportunity to use or appreciate them. Here lies some of my words and pictures (which are untouched apart from cropping, unless I've said otherwise) - Please add your words to mine, and leave a comment. Thanks for visiting!

Camels for Maryam


(When I looked up, I saw camels, and thought of Maryam in Marrakesh)

My one thousandth visitor came from Fairfield, California, USA between Midnight and 1am, London GMT

Hi MOI - must mean I'm in Seventh Heaven, I'm on Cloud 9, or maybe I got my head up in the clouds! My thinking's still a bit cloudy... Or maybe I'm just getting a special show put on for me :-D

Thanks Katie!

Oh my. I have never been gifted with camels before. So glad mother nature has a sense of inventiveness. Or perhaps it's just you Annelisa finding magic for us in the skies.

Race you, Maryam! I bagsey the second one! (the first one looks a bit headstrong! :-D)

I don't know, I think it's still the kid in me looking for pictures in the sky... :-)

Camels! In fact two! They have two humps, and these camels have a name. I think it's called duodenum, no wait... It starts with D.

*phews after looking through Google and this site here*

Oh, bactrian camels! Whoops. The one-hump camel is called dromedary!

Congratulations on reaching 1k visitors annelisa! =D

Hiya Frolicsome... Yes, I believe you're right. I remember it by the two humps being like the 'B' (on it's side) in Bacterian, and the one hump like the 'D' (on its side). But having just looked it up in Wikipedia, it seems like the Bacterian camels come from colder climates, so maybe not in Marrakesh after all :-(

:-) I believe you're right about nature, Mystic - certainly seem to be getting some good photos at the moment!

ok I see the humps
but like frolicsome kid says, one hump dromedaries in Africa - lol!
Asiatic camels would be a fine sight in Marrakesh
