Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Ups and Downs

This is the first time I’m doing Cee’s challenge. She asks us to post photos of the ways people go up and down, and says, “The only limit, is that the person actually has to be outdoors and not enclosed in an airplane or helicopter or elevator.” I have a few photos which I think fit the criteria.

The first is of hubby, just about to fall through the air into the safety net after trying out the trapeze at Club Med in Phuket.

Here is our sweet granddaughter climbing up the Jungle Gym when she visited us in South Africa,

and here she is, coming down the other side.

So many steps at the great Wall of China. They just carried on for ever it seemed. and the wall itself is estimated to be over 4,000 miles from end to end. The Great Wall Marathon is a 7.5km ‘fun’ run, which involves 5164 steps. That should get you in trim, for sure. πŸ™‚

This is me, parasailing off the beach in Phuket. What goes up, must come down….right?Β  I was hoping like crazy, that this saying was true, and with not too much of a bump either. πŸ˜€ ( Do you see that crazy guy with his legs around my waist? He started off standing on my shoulders, and had no harness at all. I was praying that he didn’t fall, or I would have had to work out how to land myself.)

I hope you enjoyed my up and down photos. To see more interpretations of Cee’s Fun Foto challenge, just click here.

  1. Ups and Downs. HA! I LOVE the first picture on this post. That is one of the best entries for a theme I have seen. Very cool. Congrats on nailing the theme. πŸ™‚

  2. These are some really perfect shots for the challenge! Your pretty granddaughter ,and you parasailing! That is something I would like to do…but haven’t done yet!

  3. The first ones are utterly fun pictures. Your last picture scared me – it has everything I am afraid of: heights, shaky movements, etc. I shivered just looking at it. :-)) I have a serious fear of heights, you see, You are very brave and adventurous. πŸ™‚

    • I’m sure you’d enjoy it. I so wanted to try it when we went again earlier this year, but it was too windy, and raining a lot of the time. 😦

  4. Going up is often hard work. Going down is fun, but the landing is always the crucial part. Like jumping off the top storey of a skyscraper, and remarking, ‘So far so good,’ as each floor is passed.

    • I really don’t know what came over me that day. πŸ˜€ I was most insistent that I had to do it, even though hubby wasn’t at all keen that I should, because he knows what a scaredy cat I really am.

    • I think that “enjoy” isn’t quite the right word. πŸ˜€ It was certainly very exhilarating, and I wish it had lasted twice as long. I amazed myself and hubby, that day. I never knew I was so brave and reckless. πŸ˜†
