You may be aware that Ive tended to post pictures on Dyxum of my travels as a volunteer Stem Cell courier. Threads for previous years can be found here:

2015

2016

For this year Im planning two threads, one in Themed for shared photo when Ive managed to meet up with other Dyxumers on my travels, and one for the solo stuff.

This is the solo thread, the meeting thread can be found here.

First trip: Wroclaw, afternoon pickup, very cold. I went to the zoo...

1.1 The Zoo bridge


1.2 Zoo entrance


1.3 Is there no privacy?


1.4 Out to lunch?


1.5 Chameleon


1.6 Monkey (thankfully not made of brass)


1.7 Cute


1.8 Taking advantage of a pool of sunlight

A great New Year to you Bob J and thank you for continuing these threads. I always enjoy seeing so many places that I will never see and presented with your level skill adds to my enjoyment. In this series I especially like 2.4 and 2.6. I love using the fisheye and know it takes a certain eye to make good use of the lens.

Im glad youre continuing your posts from your courier trips around the world. I enjoyed your pictures the last two years, so keep up the good work! Thanks for sharing!
So far I like most #2.3 for the round ceiling and the "Union Jack"-stripes, and #3.10 for the colours.
