Photo Journal/ Weekly Photo Challenge: Merge

This week’s photo challenge theme is MERGE as hosted by The Daily Post at WordPress. I’ve been racking my brains since last night about possible photographs that stood out in my mind that would depict this fusion: a juxtaposition of several elements that would create something aesthetically pleasing. I chanced upon a few pictures that my husband has taken at the Singapore Zoo around two years back, and I thought that they could be quirky interpretations of Merge.

This photo shows the ‘merge’ of animal and water. Bengal tigers, such powerful creatures.

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

– William Blake

I love this photo. It sees how the elephant ‘merged’ this sombrero, placing it on top of his trainer’s head. That unity of the senses has been captured here.

“I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. An elephant’s word is one hundred percent.”

Horton Hears a Who  by Dr. Seuss

How about you, dear friends, what’s your contribution for this week’s Photo Challenge?

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
