ABC Wednesday ~ 19-H


Round 19-H
My 105th entry ~Mijn 105e bijdrage

Hello and good morning, -afternoon, -evening, dear people who all participate is this wonderful photomeme, which is a joy to me, week after week, after week. I’m always curious to what you come up with!

The challenging letter of this week is the and I’ve chosen for the word Height

That I love to visit zoo’s is quit well known by most of the people who follow me by now, I guess. During a trip in my ‘to-the-south-neighbor -country Belgium, my daughter in law and I went to Pairi Daiza. It is the most beautiful zoo I’ve ever seen so far. I know all the zoo’s but 2 in The Netherlands, I know 1 in Tallinn (Estonia) and I now 2 in Germany. In Paira Daiza you can find lots and lots of buildings en statues.  The one you see on the photo is very very large, much larger then I am. (on bare feet I measure 1.78 cm) … I chose a photo on which I am visible to give you an idea of its height.  Isn’t it enormous? Somewhere coming fall we want to visit it again for obvious reasons but also because of the fact that they have Chinese Panda’s and that one of those gave birth june 2nd.

Have a nice ABC-Wednesday-day / – week ~ ♫ M e l o d y ♫ (ABC-W-team)



Goedemorgen / – middag / – avond beste deelnemers in deze mooi foto-uitdaging, waar ik week na week iedere keer weer veel plezier beleef. Ben altijd heel benieuwd naar waar jullie mee komen.

De uitdagende letter van deze week is de letter H en ik koos voor het woord Hoogte

Dat ik ervan houd dierentuinen te bezoeken is onderhand wel bekend bij de meesten die hier lezen, neem ik aan. Tijdens een tripje naar de zuiderburen, Belgie, bezochten Daphne en ik  Pairi Daiza. Het is bij uitstek de mooiste dierentuin die ik ooit bezocht. Op 2 na ken ik alle dierentuinen van Nederland, ik ken die van Talling (Estland) en 2 Duitse, die in Nordhorn en die in Osnabrück. In Paira Daiza vind je naast heel veel dieren natuurlijk ook ontelbaar veel beelden en gebouwen. Het beeld op de foto is enorm hoog. Ik plaats hier expres een foto waarop ik zelf ook sta zodat je je een voorstelling kunt maken van de hoogte van dit beeldhouwwerk. Ik ben op blote voeten 1.78.  We hopen ergens komende herfst weer naar dit park terug te mogen keren want we waren, en zijn nog steeds, behoorlijk onder de indruk van dit schitterende park.  Een extra reden om dit park nogmaals te bezoeken is het feit dat er Chinese Panda’s zijn en er op 2 juni jl een panda-baby geboren is.

Wens je een fijne ABC-Wednesday-dag / – week. ~♫ M e l o d y ♫ (ABC-W-team)

    What an amazing statue! It’s good you’re in it to show the perspective – remember I did that when my friend and I sat with the statue in Scarborough (my F post). Have a heavenly week, Melody.

      Yes isn’t it?

      Indeed they are, enormous!

  4. Rajesh 30 augustus 2016 at 19:16 #

    The image shows impressive perspective of height.

  5. readerwil 30 augustus 2016 at 19:39 #

    Dit beeld is indrukwekkend en lijkt Aziatisch. Mooi, Melody!

    • Melody 30 augustus 2016 at 21:59 #

      Ja hè? Is het volgens mij ook hoor. Dank je wel Wil.

  6. Roger O Green 30 augustus 2016 at 20:04 #

    Those statues make you seem even shorter!

    • Melody 30 augustus 2016 at 22:00 #

      haha yes they do ;-)
      But real height is not a measure for ones character is it ;-)

  7. Kakel 30 augustus 2016 at 21:28 #

    Eerst dacht ik: ik zie helemaal geen H. Maar het was de h van hoogte en die staat er duidelijk op. En jij ook ♥ Leuk!
    DIkke kus

    • Melody 30 augustus 2016 at 22:00 #

      ;-) een 2e kijk verandert soms je visie op iets hè? (oepsss wel diep of niet ;-) )
      dank je wel lieverd.

    Hey, even your comment form is amazing, let alone the fascinating image you shared with us!

  9. ewok1993 31 augustus 2016 at 00:37 #

    What an unusually lovely statue.


    • Melody 31 augustus 2016 at 01:01 #

      Unusual it is to me too Ewok, nice to see we agree on that ;-)

  10. artmusedog and carol 31 augustus 2016 at 01:20 #

    Happy Week to you ~ ^_^

    • Melody 31 augustus 2016 at 11:21 #

      Thank you Artmusedog and Carol
      (if you want I can make you one…)

      You’re welcome, thank you, likewise.

  11. Hildred Finch 31 augustus 2016 at 04:21 #

    Oh yes, it certainly is a huge statue. I can understand your love of zoos – the ones who love and respect the animals and give them the most natlural living conditions possible.

    • Melody 31 augustus 2016 at 11:22 #

      Isn’t it ;-)

      Indeed those zoos are the one I love too

  12. ellen b 31 augustus 2016 at 04:54 #

    Very high indeed! Great shot of that sculpture.

    • Melody 31 augustus 2016 at 11:23 #

      Yes indeed… I don’t know how many meters up it is…
      thank you

  13. Amit Agarwal 31 augustus 2016 at 07:59 #

    Hi Melody!
    ‘Height’ is a great choice for H, and the picture wonderfully compliments the same:)
    I loved your post:)
    Have a great week ahead:)

    • Melody 31 augustus 2016 at 11:23 #

      Hi Amit
      Thank you for visiting and commenting in such a nice way.

      Also for your kind wishes, wishing you the same!

  14. Mrs. Dash 31 augustus 2016 at 08:13 #

    I wish to go there sometime. Lovely statue

    • Melody 31 augustus 2016 at 11:25 #

      I totally can imagine that ! I can’t wait till we will go there again.

      I agree ;-)

  15. Murthy 31 augustus 2016 at 18:47 #

    Very nice capture.

  16. Joy 31 augustus 2016 at 21:24 #

    I like the flower ends to their trunks.

  17. Carin 1 september 2016 at 02:34 #

    Beautiful picture with contrast and colors. I love your coat too.

    • Melody 1 september 2016 at 10:02 #

      Thank you Carin….

      Yes ;-) me too, I have lots of red in my clothing.

  18. Ann 1 september 2016 at 03:32 #

    That is one impressive statue.

  19. Gattina 2 september 2016 at 10:27 #

    The statue is beautiful and very special ! Don’t call Pairi Daiza a Zoo, lol ! The owner and the people would be very upset. It is an animal park (parc animalier) Because they did everything that it doesn’t look like a zoo. You rather go from country to country, from China where the baby Panda is to India which hosts also elephants which had been abused by circuses !

    • Melody 2 september 2016 at 11:40 #

      Indeed Gattina.

      ;-) I can imagine that people would call it different but to me there is not much difference between “animal park” and “zoo” … in my language both words mean the same

      But how ever one might call it, I think it is a wonderful place to be at!!

  20. Su-sieee! Mac 2 september 2016 at 22:58 #

    Wow! Those are gorgeous elephants. Be funny if the zoo housed the elephants beneath them.

    • Melody 3 september 2016 at 11:03 #

      Indeed they are…

      That is a wonderful idea but not the case… they have a large space in that zoo with lots of beautiful elephantstatues

  21. Shady Gardener 3 september 2016 at 04:50 #

    Hi Melody! This was a great post! I enjoy visiting zoos, also! Do you thin the sculptures might be life-sized?

    • Melody 3 september 2016 at 11:06 #

      Hi Shady Gardener

      Thank you!
      Nice to read we enjoy the same activity ;-)

      No I don’t think so…they are far to big I guess
