Weekly Photo Challenge: Object


Once again, I thought I’d try to show a little different take on the subject of the Challenge.  In this photo there is little doubt where the focal point of the story is……the Cheetah of course!  But of equal interest is the fact that it is sitting on our safari vehicle observing us like we were in a miniature zoo.  We all knew that it was a special moment by the fact that our wonderful guide ( who had never had this happen before) kept lowly muttering ” there’s a cheetah on my truck…..there’s a cheetah on MY truck”

Who is looking at who??

Who is looking at who??

So the truck is also part of the object….but I also think that the fact that the cheetah was thinking WE were the object is interesting….but she didn’t have a camera.
