ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " X "



The end of the alphabet is coming closer.
There are only 2 weeks after this one.
" X " is an eXtremely difficult letter to depict.
My first photo is an eXplanation of what I call a XEROPHYTE.
A plant that has adapted for growth with limited water.
There certainly is limited water at Red Rock Canyon, Nevada.



I definitely wouldn't say I have XENOPHOBIA.
Traveling to many different countries has helped me to not fear
things and situations that are foreign or strange.
These boys certainly have a different home life and routine than I do.
The bush of Kenya is far different than Central California.



Much closer to home I found a series of X's in the Tower Bridge.
I like the way there are Xs within the Xs.



Reflective Xs.

I used Xerophyte too! Happy New Year!

RuneE said...

You had some fine examples, but I feel that the boys from Kenya won. They put their word in perspective.

Wow! You found some great X-photos!

Great shots and post for the letter X.

Xcellent!! It's true that travel broadens the mind, isn't it? You begin to see for yourself that people are people everywhere you go.

Love the last two photos - so crisp and full of X-factor!

Terrific post for the X Day as always, Sue! You do indeed have a flair and you're very creative! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and wishing you a very Happy New Year!

Many X's but the two boys from Kenya are the best. That was a great capture and a lot said through the picture!!

well, if you're not a xenophobe, maybe you're a xenophile! sounds like it to me.

Travel broadens our horizons and makes us flexible regardless of our age. Nice images.

Beverly said...

You are so smart!. I love all the photos, particularly the last one. The water is like glass.

LOVE the reflective Xs...and yes, it's amazing how racist some people are! But you and I know that "great minds think alike." :D

Kate said...

Great collection of "x's"! Glad we are trading comments more often again; I'll be back again with ABC at the beginning of the alphabet in a few weeks.

I like the imaginative Xess in the photos !

Joy said...

Love the close up tower bridge metal, do like a metal bridge, and rivets. A great variety of X.

LivingSoAbundantly said...

Your pictures are worth a thousand words. Xcellent job! :)

Anna said...

Some great Xs there. I am now annoyed that I did not think of xerophyte - I stare at one everyday when I look at my kitchen window sill. Wishing you a most happy and healthy New Year :)

Hildred and Charles said...

Beautiful photos that really reflect your awareness.

Delightful post - you covered a lot of ground with flair. Love the bridge!

Wanda said...

The ever delightful, every clever Susan!!

I had a hard time...no photos in my collection, so had to google!

Paula Scott said...
