Weekly Photo Challenge: Twist

Several things immediately entered my head when I read the subject of this week’s photo challenge:

  • Dancing away in a holiday club to Chubby Checker’s “Let’s Twist Again” in the summer of 1961
  • The ‘twist‘ of blue paper containing salt in a packet of crisps
  • Barley Twist – that amber stick of twisted sugar which was probably the cause of many a tooth needing to be filled.

All very nostalgic but the twist is that I don’t have a photo of any of these things, so I am going with this delightful Springbok in Namibia who had to twist her neck to be able to scratch the itch. Springbok or what about these twisty horns of a male Kudu? kudu-2 so what has got you into a twist?

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.
