A giraffe-disguised tower, Malta, March 2019

I’m weaning myself off my recent obsession with collective nouns, but gently, as you see. Why this tower was disguised as a giraffe, I do not know, but it caught my attention because tower, is used for a group of giraffes! Tower is used for stationery giraffes, journey for those on the move, and herd, troupe and even kaleidoscope get used too.

  1. My son love cranes and every time I drive next to the port side road in my city with him, he just don’t stop looking at them, until they vanishes.


      • love it when the themes connect – and seriously – how fun is this to have the giraffe crane (and did you hear the recent news that a crane feel in Seattle and killed four people – so sad – I think we take it for granted that they will stay upright and do their job safely – ugh – feel so bad)
