Making Designs: a relaxing hobby

      I am not very good with computers, but I do try. I use a primitive Photoshop program but it works for me.  I take some of my photographs and put them on the program. I use the various tools to make designs.

This is a photo of a zebra in the Ngorongoru Crater in northern Tanzania.  When I first looked at the photo,  I thought that the zebra was stepping over the other one. But it is an illusion because of the stripes.

The Song

 




The Instrumental





  Lyrics

I have a shiny apple.
I'd like to share with you.
And now I have another apple..
Now we have two.

Oh one and one make two you see,
Add another apple, then there's three.
If we go and get one more,
You'll find that we have four.

I have four shiny apples,
So each of us has two.
I'll go and get one apple more,
There's five for me and you.

Oh five is really great you see...
There's two for you and three for me....

talking

We'd better add another one..
Cause three and three is lots of  fun.
