Camels... what camels!



Even though there was a lot going on in the city yesterday I was not expecting to see camels on Hay Street! The shot above made me smile.. the look on the camel's face as the gentleman sitting on its back was taking a selfie says it all :) As for the ladies below they didn't even noticed the string of camels crossing the road silently behind them.. too funny and at the same time a little surreal :)


As camel routes go this was a pretty easy gig for the camels of Calamunnda Camel Farm.. mounting up and crossing over Hay St. to Cathedral Square, below Council House in the far background on St. Georges Terrace, St. George's Cathedral and passing the new City of Perth Library back out on to Hay St..


'The grass is always greener' right.. there were definitely a few 'darn I wish I'd taken a camel' looks from the sightseeing bus.. I can't be sure for certain but I think there were more people on camels than on the bus :) Hope you've had/are still having a good weekend, take care and stay safe.. p.s. I bet you didn't expect to see camels here either did you :)

  5. That's so cool! The camels look well groomed and happy enough.
    Nice to see Bactrian camels with the 2 humps; our dromedaries in Israel have only one. Must be easier to take 2 riders.

  6. How unusual to see a number of camels walking down the city street. Camels are rare here, but there is a farm than raises them. They show up in Christmas scenes.

  10. Perth is just getting more fun day after day! Impressive. You may remember the ad, "I'd walk a mile for a Camel," referring to a Camel cigarette...well, if I were in your area, I might walk a mile to see one of these camels, but I ain't gonna walk all the way from Florida! :)

  14. The first foto is superb!
    They look so out of place there, take them down to the beach I say.

  15. The first photo is amazing. You couldn't have set it up better if you tried. Good to see Perth improving its public transport.

  16. If a camel or three crossed Market Street in downtown St. Louis near me I think I'd be aware of it. Our experiences on camels have been universally unpleasant. Don't trust the camel jockeys by the Pyramids.

  17. I love camels, they are very clever and did you know that they are rancorous? That's what I learned on a trip to Morocco. That said, I like the expression on his face, he's really cute and proud :)
    P. S. No, I didn't expect to see camels here! Fantastic. I adore the way you capture your city "soul" this inspires me...

  21. The look on the camel's face says it all. I'm pretty sure we wouldn't want to know what animals really think of us....

  22. That sure looks surreal, Grace!
    Oh, camels. Back in 1989 I could´ve been one of the last to enter the Pyramids of Giza. And where did my ex-boyfriend give the last money to? A stupid camel-ride. I could still "cry" upon this!

  23. Now that's a sight you don't often see!
    Great photo's.

    All the best Jan
