Leaping Camel

Leaping Camel on Carousel at Ellas Deli

This seemed like an appropriate photo for a Friday evening, the beginning of the week-end after a long week. We might do well to celebrate – maybe take a giant leap for joy like this great carousel camel.

What?  Carousel camel?

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. Le manège tourne, le temps passe et cette magnifique photo reste !
    The carousel spins, time passes and this magnificent photo!

  2. I’m all for the giant leap into the weekend. Unfortunately, I’ve got to work for a while before it gets here for me. 🙁

  3. I love the way he looks like he’s leaping on the carousel. Great movement. Yay! Weekend!
