Life is full of tricky snakes and ladders-Steven Morrissey

This post is part of Donna’s LAPC #243 It’s Tricky. She says

“Enjoy the chance to think outside the box for this challenge. What tricks do you use to get the shot you want? Do you love reflections in raindrops? Is there something hidden in your photo, or the unsuspecting behind a wall? Have you ever found ice cream clouds or illusions in a waterfall at sunset? A unicycle? That’s tricky and so are sand castles with the incoming tide.

Thank you Donna for this TRICKY theme. I was so sure in the beginning that It’s really tricky to come out with solutions. But Still one can try!


You can’t answer this.

Have you seen the movie LIFE OF PIE  about a boy, a tiger and a boat?


“In a world where death is the hunter, my friend, there is no time for regrets or doubts. There is only time for decisions.”
Carlos Castañeda


Can you tell the difference? I know it’s tricky!

One thing I am sure of is that this image can take one into a dreamy mood!


“The best thing about dreams is that fleeting moment when you are between asleep and awake when you don’t know the difference between reality and fantasy, when for just that one moment you feel with your entire soul that the dream is reality, and it really happened”.

James Arthur Baldwin



No doubt this is a heavy and gigantic crane.

Can this lift that 5-storeyed building just by the hook?

“The herculean task of a photographer is to capture a momentary frame as beautiful in reality, as it would be in a dream.”

Ansel Adams

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. Terrific response to the challenge Philo. Loved the Ansel Adams quote, it’s so perfect for the week! Your images are also very clever – the tiger could have been the cover of the marvelous Life of Pi (an all-time favorite) and the “Herculean Task” is so perfectly captured and named! Well come.

  2. The Life of Pi was a great example and it is a great photo to showcase it. I found that book SO good and so frustrating because I wanted answers. It was so well written. I didn’t like the movie as much. It is always that way.

    I am thinking the second is a reflection and maybe you added some color??? Either way…it is indeed dreamy which is the point.

    The last photo was fun. Right place and right time for sure! I am so glad you came along, Philo. This was a great addition to this week. And now The Life of Pi is on my mind again. lol. Thank you.
