Tonight I am going to take just a slight detour from our travels around Spain in the name of a wildlife adventure.
One of the first photos taken in the name of the Stand by Your Statue pursuit was this one, outside a statue of a lion at the Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Take note of four relatively grown up men (my housemate John, Mik Hill, Tim Freeman and SwissToni) stood in front of the statue giving it some growling action. Grrrrr!
Although not a true like for like imitation (as this would involve getting down on all fours and growling), this was the first of many snapshots taken in front of the king of the jungle.
This Stand By Your Lion picture was taken in Havana in Cuba, with just the three grown up men this time: housemate John and Mik happily resuming their growling pose from Copenhagen, alongside friend Justin.
It really is a most therapeutic process, and one which can be simplified in three main steps:
i) Find statue of lion
ii) Wave hands around in ‘fierce paw’ movements
iii) Growl loudly. Grrrrr!
I did say that we were taking just a slight detour tonight, as we now travel back to Spain, and to the beautiful city of Barcelona, where it is time for a grown up woman to practice the Stand By Your Lion boogie. Here my friend Helen Stanley perfects that lion growl, looking incredibly ferocious in the process. Grrrrr!
