I really like #1 - the washed out landscape surrounding the heffalumps really highlights them.

now u tell it i have a pyjama full of pink elephants,, never knew how they got there either but I love it :))

The king of Spain went some weeks ago to hunt an elephant there , he stepped on something, fell and broke his hip, hope that he learnt that hunting elephants brings bad luck, now the whole Spain is against him lol,,we are having a terrible crisis and our king (well not mine, he doesnt represent me really) spends publc money going hunting pfff,,what a world . I wish i could transform in elephants certain people,,,nothing bad, I would only shoot at them with my camera :)

Well all that speech I gave was just cos I intended to say that i am enjoyinig the posts of your trip a lot, but saw the elephants and lost my track lol,,sorry
Love the first one!!!

It looks like the ellie in No 4 has been white washed... and I love the eyelashes in No 3... they are wonderful creatures, for sure!
