The photohunter theme this week is foreign. My native language is English but for many people in the world it is a foreign language. All languages are foreign to some and native to others. The shot below includes four different languages.
My daughter is an adult with her own place in a different city from me but thanks to her leaving many books in her room at my house, I was able to photograph pages from books in different languages. I included English on the bottom left in the shot above since for some of you that language is foreign although it's my native language.
I debated whether the summer shot of a bee on a cone flower was a foreign body invading another since their relationship is symbiotic. Participants post at the home of photohunters beginning Saturday mornings.
Update: I realize it's hard to tell what the languages are since the shots are small. The very top book is a French textbook with some instructions in English and underneath you can see a corner of a map of Paris to the right. Below on the left hand side is the English book Utopia. On the right hand side the very bottom book is German and above that is a Russian book.
