Photo and music , so adequate!
Tthanks you Paula for your posts , ever!
Ciao carissima Anna. E piacere sempre vederti qui. Baci
I love your sleeping giant! 🙂 I can tell you had fun, Paula.
A small contribution :
Thank you so much Jo. I know how busy you are right now 🙂 This sleeping giant is a local resident. I still did not have time to sort holiday photos 😉
That is just so … GORGEOUS !!! No-one with a heart or a thinking mind could disagree. The big cats are the most beautiful creatures on this earth, imnsho.
Now THAT’s a version … 😀
SHIT ! – I didn’t press hard enough to copy the URL I wanted. Apologies, Paula !!!!
😀 Ok, waiting for the link 🙂
It seems that I can’t open it at work :(. Will have to wait for another 9 hours….
😀 Thank you my dear 🙂
Hello M-R 🙂 I tried out the link you offered, but can’t find any pics :S.

‘hehehe’ – so gr8, love it – if we wake a sleeping lion so we have to have both a plan A and plan B, about the conversation topic… 😀
😆 🙂 So nice to see you Drake. I was sure you were somewhere in West Alps on your mountain bike 🙂
Later this month I will – I started my holidays here in the border line area between Germany and Denmark – where I spent about 10 year in my youth – from I was 5 to 16 years old… 🙂
I’d love a siesta right now! Extremely hectic days at work!! Wonderful photo Paula.
It’s not necessary, because the colors in this shot looks very good, but have you thought about converting it into B&W? It might work well if you add some contrast and mid-tones.
😀 I have thought of that. Thank you very much CG for confirming my idea. Kyss
I’m looking forward to see the result.
Great shot of a cuddly but mighty animal! Here is my Thursday Special: http://travelwithintent.com/2014/08/07/venice-dawn-workshop-anthony-epes/
This is so cool Debbie. You have made the right choice. Going sleepless seems too much of a sacrifice for me, but Venice is worth it 🙂 Thank you for your beauty-full entry!

Cool shot. For once, I was able to guess the song you chose. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Hahaha I enjoy being unpredictable (don’t even have to try), but it feels good to respond to the expectations of my viewership 😀 Your day at work finished already? I am still lost in time…..
Right now, 9:10pm. Going to have dinner now. Ciao. 🙂
Enjoy it Draco. 🙂
Nice… I’ll try to find a pic for the challenge…
Awww, that would be so nice. Thank you Lumar 🙂
So majestic and so innocent looking in their sleep! Makes one want to reach out and pet it. I’ll just watch! Great photo and music, Paula. 🙂
Looks just like a big kitty cat when asleep 🙂
ha – you are right 🙂

My submission for this week Paula. Hope you like it 🙂
Loving it 🙂 Nice to have you here again Colline 🙂
Wonderful portrait and comforting!
love the song and the pic …
Thank you, Jensine 🙂
I don’t even dare wake my wife! Exactly how close were you to this guy?
A meter (3 feet), but he was behind bars 😀
Even if my wife were behind bars I would not wake her!
😆 Isn’t she lucky! I hope she appreciates it :D. Hubby wakes me every day….
This is a drawing or painting that I should have done:
Oh, thank you for sharing this Allan. I wanted to leave a comment on your wildlife gallery, but it wasn’t possible. Are your ears still relaxed? 😉
Makes me feel I can go and lie down with him. What a cutie!
Great shot and post Paula. 😀
Fabulous capture Paula! Happy to have you back! 🙂
You are not a Leo, right? I think I remember you are a Cancer, and I missed your bday this year…. Sorry
No apologies needed! I am a cusp, so I switch between the two when it suits me 🙂
Very interesting :). I’d say you are more of a Leo 😀
😀 I think I am a weird mix!!
On aurait presque envie de le serrer dans ses bras, comme une peluche… 🙂
Is this mighty one in the Zagreb zoo? It’s a beautiful shot: he’s sleeping so intently. And did you photograph him after the Slovakia disappointment? He would be balm to the spirit.
Yes, he is in Zagreb. The pic was taken before holidays. Slovakia wouldn’t have been that bad if it weren’t for weather and food poisoning.
Nice close up shot Paula!
WARNING: WHINGE COMING …
You don’t have a ‘Page’ for this non-challenge, Paula – as you do for Sundays. This makes it impossible for me to put a generic link behind the icon in my sidebar !! – and everyone should think of MY requirement first !!! [grin]
Oh dear M-R. I don’t have a “Page” for any of these two. Thursday’s Special is listed as a category, “Black & White Sunday” is not even a category. I should see what I can do. Will the new changes on WordPress permit me to do it?
Do what suits YOU, Paula – ignore me.
I have a dreadful tendency to want everyone to set up stuff that’s familiar to me.
[M-R smacks her own hand]
No, I really want to do it. Now I have Thursday’s Special as a category and a Page. One will have to go. This “Page” thing is really weird. Isn’t it supposed to feature all posts for Thursday’s Special. I think so, but it is not. I feel so dump, and haven’t waken up yet.
Then don’t do anything until you well awake and feeling sprightly, me old china. 😀
😆 Very well, but I want your opinion. If you look at my menu, you will see different categories (some needs updating though). There, there is Thursday’s Special listed as a category – isn’t that enough for a challenge. Black and White Sunday is not mentioned on the menu except as a sub-item under Photography Page and there it is just Black & White showcasing all black and white posts, not only the Sunday ones. I really don’t know how to make these challenges into a separate page to make sense.
Tell you what. Give me a few hours, during which I MUST try to get through some of the posts from others, and I’ll look at your site in detail, eh ?
And don’t forget that I have admitted to’ve posted my whinge the wrong way ’round: meaning that it is the B&WSun that’s missing, not the ThursSpec.
Can you walk away for a while…?
😀 as you ordered …

For when you come back- so far I know that the complaint was about B&W Sunday – with half of my morning coffee dose absorbed I have now made it a separate category visible on my menu, and the widget assigned to it also links to all the posts in it. They are not pages, but I hope they will work for you. If you have more problems (of any kind), please shout, even if it means waking me up 😀
POIFICK !!! Now both icons link to the generic, so to speak. GOODONYER !!!!
😆 what is “poifick”? 😀
“Perfect” in Yiddish. Dummy ! [grin]

http://wp.me/p3ZISx-2Vz is my entry for this one: and of course I got the above whinge the wrong way ’round. 😦
This is a goldie :). A terrific pic and memory. What a privilege for me to share it here 🙂
Dropping by to say hello Paula ! I missed Thursday and you. I hope you are doing swell !
I missed you too Kathryn. We have some catching up to do. I’m tired as if I hadn’t been on holiday. Where are you now?
I am still in the NL and yes we do. I am going to try and follow your Thursday NON challenge ! 🙂
