Every week, Cee has a Fun Foto Challenge, and this time, the theme is ‘Reflections and Shadows’, so here are a few I was able to find.
On our visit to Belize in January, we saw some interesting reflections and shadows on our day trip to the Mayan ruins at Lamanai. The only way to get to this site is by river, and this pic not only has reflections, but also a well camouflaged crocodile.
Here’s a much prettier reflection of water lilies on the New River
Now for the shadows. Our long trek through the jungle was very shady and full of shadows.
In the trees were the shadowy figures of Howler monkeys.
I also found couple of hammock pics for the theme. The first one in some welcome shade in Belize,
and this one taken at our villa at Round Hill, Jamaica. Can you think of a more pleasant way to babysit a young grandson?
I hoe you’ve enjoyed my reflections and shadows. To see more entries, just click on Cee’s badge.
I love your adventures 🙂 That camouflaged crocodile is one for sure! Um, grandson? Lucky you…but I would have thought passing by you were the mama!
Thanks for the nice compliment, Allyson. 🙂
You look too young to have a grandson!!! 😀 Gorgeous shots. Now I want to pack my bags and head out for a vacation with sun and hammocks and howler monkeys! Sharon
Thanks for the compliment, Sharon. I have five grandchildren, and the oldest turns 18 this week. 🙂 How time flies! Sylvia
The hammocks look super comfortable 🙂
Yes it was, for a while. I can’t stay in those things for too long. I like a more comfortable bed. 🙂
Great shots! I’ll come back to view them in January. It’s about that time every year when I long to be lying in a hammock strung up between palm trees. 🙂
Thanks so much, John. Yes, you have January to look forward to. 😕
I feel like turning the hammock upside down and replace your spot… right about now. 😀
Hahaha You wouldn’t be so mean, Rommel! Okay, I’ll rather give up my spot than be tipped into the pool. 🙂
That is a whole new take on baby siting!! 🙂
Hehehe. Thanks, Madhu. It was a lovely afternoon. 🙂
I greet and wish you a happy November.
Thank you, Marko. Same to you. 🙂
Nice to see you in a hammock again! And those above image crocodile , it scares me that the deck enough surplus ! Be more careful Since the brick – I am afraid that you will not uncover with love maxima
Thanks so much, Stefan. The crocodile disappeared back into the swamp, after I took the photo. 🙂
I think that you spend 24/7 in those hammocks Sylvia and pay a waiter to run around taking all the photos …..own up 😉 Ralph xox 😀
You’ve got me, Ralph. Sshhh….don’t tell anyone. 🙂
My lips are sealed 😀
Hope you can still manage to eat and drink. 😀
Have you got a remedy for removing super glue ? 😀
According to Super Glue Corporation, there are no known cases of permanent damage from this type of injury. It may take a couple of days to unstick eyelids or lips, although tears and saliva hasten the removal. People who have stuck their lips together tend to work at it with their tongue, but even if you leave the area alone, it will unstick in 1-2 days. 😀
I’m starving ……. 2 days ??? OMG !! 😉
The detox will do you good. 😀
I am having donut withdrawal symptoms 😉
Too bad. 👿
I love the water lily picture, it is beautiful ad.
Thanks, Hopestar. 🙂
You looks great my friend awesome post 🙂
Thanks so much, Jake. 🙂
You sure love hammocks. … but I don’t see a refreshing adult beverage nearby.
No drinking on the job, Frank! I’m sure there was a bottle of water somewhere. 🙂
Nothing better than relaxing in a hammock, and you look pretty relaxed Sylvia! 🙂
Thanks, LuAnn. Yes, it was very relaxing there. 🙂
Any spare hammocks? 😉
I’m afraid not, RoSy. I don’t seem to have one even for myself, at the moment. 😦
Oh buuuu… Thanks for checking though.
Happy Friday 🙂
Thanks, RoSy. You too. 🙂
You’re looking pretty comfy in that last shot ‘babysitting’. Tough assignment, eh! I too am a fan of that water lily shot.
Thanks so much, Ingrid. 🙂
To see the crocodile that close does not feel comforting but the nearby lotus is so pretty. I am wondering how did you keep an eye on your grandson when you looked so comfy under the shade 🙂
Thanks so much, My grandson was having his afternoon nap, and didn’t wake up for ages. Very peaceful. 🙂
By the photos it looks like you’re having a hard time of it Sylvia! Must be all that baby sitting I think. Tends to wear you out!!!
It absolutely does, Michelle. I survived though. 🙂
Nice to see you in a hammock again :D. You caught a crocodile and a gorgeous water lilly on the same trip while you were baby sitting. Impressive!!
Thanks, Paula. 🙂
Yep, that pretty amazing babysitting territory!
Not too shabby, Gilly, and I didn’t even show you Montego Bay which was just beyond the pool. 😀
Love these photos especially the Water Lilly.
Thanks so much, Woolly. 🙂
I especially love the one with the water lily 🙂
That seems to be a favourite. 🙂
A perfect series of paradise. I hope to see Belize one day. There’s a cruise that leaves Galveston that goes to Belize. Time for some overtime shifts.best wishes from Texas!
Thanks so much, IT. I do hope that your wish is granted. It’s an amazing place to visit. Thanks for the Texan greetings. 😀
Thanks so much, Liz. 🙂
Ah…to be in a hammock today! You captured the challenge perfectly. I had a hard time finding the crocodile – good thing they are not in abundance here in Tennessee, or I might be in trouble!
Thanks so much. Yes, invisible crocs could be quite a hazard. Spooks would fade into insignificance. 😯
Ahhh, a hammock – that’s the life man!!
I agree. 🙂
The Belize hammock is so skinny…looks like you have to hang on for dear life…but hey it would be worth it☺
Yes, I didn’t stay in it for long. Good job I’m not any bigger. I think it was made for super skinny people. 😀
oh i can be a babysitter anytime 🙂 great pictures as always!
Thanks for the offer, Lola. 🙂
Love that water lily picture AD very serene .
Glad to see you comfortable babysitting …
and not taking any chances with kettering 😉
Thanks so much, Poppy. I may be a bit dense, ‘cos I don’t understand the ‘kettering’ bit of your comment. 😕
Lol Poppy here AD …
kettering is one of those odd assigned words that has come to mean the patterned indentation marks left on ones person by sitting on wicker chairs …or possibly by lying on hammocks … 😉
Thanks for the explanation, Poppy. Can’t think why I called you Gilly. I must be denser than I thought. 😀 Yes, I wouldn’t want to have that criss-cross pattern all over my bod when I arose. It would quite spoil the effect. 🙂
All terrific scenes Sylvia but you had me at the croc! 🙂
I did?? 🙂 One up for me, Phil.
That croc is good at being a rock, isn’t he?
Oh, the sheer hard labour of babysitting – how DID you survive it?
It was really tough, Col, but as they say, “someone had to do it.” 🙂
I bet is was fun relaxing in the shade!! Great photos for this week!
Thanks so much, Cee. 🙂 Thanks for the fun challenge.
What a wonderful entry… I actually sat staring at the one photo… that croc sure is camouflaged… what a way to babysit… oh it’s a tough life…
Thanks so much, bulldog. He sure is well camouflaged. Imagine sitting on him by mistake. 😯
uno dei miei sogni è visitare il Belize….ho scritto un post su questo che prima o poi vorrò pubblicare, intanto mi accontento di guardarlo riflesso nelle tue bellissime ombre ( io sono quasi-romantica ed ho scelto le ninfee 🙂 )
one of my dreams is to visit the Belize … I wrote a post about this that sooner or later I will publish, in the meantime I’m happy to see it reflected in your beautiful shadows (I am almost-romantic and I chose the water lilies:-))
haye a good day
Thanks so much, Ventis. I love the water lilies too; much less scary than the crocodile. 🙂 I hope you get your wish to visit Belize.
The crocodile looks like he is ready to leap out at some unsuspecting tourist!
He’s waiting for something, but when he saw our boat approaching, he ambled off into the mangroves. 🙂
Smashing photos, AD. I blinked twice before I saw the Croc in the top pic.
And the ‘chick’ is hot too, 😉
Thanks so much, Ark. Glad I fooled you with the croc, and I don’t half mind the rest of your comment too. 🙂
Beautiful photos! wish I was there instead 🙂
Thanks, Andy. It was a great place to be. 🙂
