Cee has set an interesting photo challenge this week calling for Two Very Different Items.
I’ve heard of a bull in a china shop but climbing up a wall???? Outside the Talbott Hotel in downtown Chicago.
I’ve also heard of Crate & Barrel but crate & bear??????
I don’t think you’d find these two in Crate & Barrel; squirrel in a pan.
A giant face, sculpted by artist Jaume Plensa, in Millennium Park, dwarfed by a nearby skyscraper in downtown Chicago.

I hope I may be forgiven for posting a second entry in Sue’s Word A Week Challenge on A Word In Your Ear at http://suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com/2013/11/01/a-word-a-week-challenge-two/. After all, the subject is Two. After I spent so much time sorting through all the images I would have been sorry not to use a few more of them.
Of all the pictures that I’ve taken, this one tugs at my heartstrings the most; my dear mother and youngest daughter. The two of them were so close and during Mum’s final hours, E sat by her bedside and sang all the songs that she remembered Mum teaching her when she was growing up (mostly good old Cockney songs like ‘Any Old Iron’.) The memory of that touching scene will stay with me for the rest of my life.
Poppies are some of my favorite flowers in the garden and these two really made a lovely show.
Two sea-lions basking in the sun. I believe this shot was captured at the Indianapolis Zoo.

Going through my image files I find that I have taken quite a few pictures of people and things in twos. The shot above was captured at the butterfly exhibit in the Chicago Botanic Garden.
These two little guys were waiting for me on the back doorstep one day.
