Mad Pachyderm


For a belated stab at this week’s Photo Challenge on the subject of Elemental I am submitting these pictures.  Pity I don’t have one of a mental ellie to match my title.

Earth near water

Air and water

A fire to de-fy-a-tempts to barbecue.

Tailpiece:

‘How did you know, Holmes, that he had been thrown from a cliff into the river and then burnt before being buried?’
‘Elementally, my dear Watson.’

    Dang . . . I hate to be pedantic . . . but, I can’t help it.

    Strictly speaking, fire is not an element. Sure, the ancients called such, but they hadn’t even invented underwear back then, so I’m not about to trust their judgment overly so. Besides, if we go with classical “elements” we should also include “void” or empty space . . . but, where are you going to find a photo of the insides of a politician’s head?

    It didn’t help that I first read the chosen theme as Emmenthal… *cheesey grin*

    Anyway, the images were holey, sorry, wholly acceptable interpretations, and looked good too!
