Happy New Year!

with 6 comments

I have a feeling this will be a challenging year, maybe more than most. But we’ll get through – we always do. Somehow. Somehow this planet of ours keeps spinning on its axis, each perfect turn the makings of one more perfect day. What we do with that is up to us. Fortunately, we get 366 of them this year.

Joy to the World!

Party of three

with 6 comments

Spotted this young woman at a party a couple of years ago – always wanted to use this shot for something… I rather like how this has turned out…

A late comment to add… whilst I have no tattoos myself, I realise now that at least part of the reason I like this photo so much is that the young lady looks very much like I did at that age. Did not realise that until yesterday. Odd, that.

watermelon sunset

with 6 comments

Nope – this one is not photoshopped at all. Straight out of the camera…

Something I’ve learned about sunsets – the good stuff is just beginning once the sun disappears below the horizon… that’s when the reflected light on the clouds and dust particles in the air really work their magic.

I bet it tastes just like watermelon.

Dinner is served

with 9 comments

I love that moment when everything is ready and on the table, hot and fragrant and you don’t know where to begin… and can’t wait to start…

It was a heavenly meal, ham & salmon with tons of fresh veg and my husband Bobby’s prize-winning onion rolls, ending with a dessert selection one might literally die for – classic cheesecake, peanut butter pie (daughter’s decadent contribution) and lemon meringue pie. Magic.

Serengeti Christmas Dream

Merry Christmas!

Not quite sure why this feels like Christmas to me, but it does – a repost from June… I’ve added a song from a Zimbabwean singer, Oliver Mtukudzi called Neria, which a Swedish friend claimed as his favourite Christmas song of the year, even though it doesn’t directly have anything to do with Christmas. It fits the image perfectly I think. And maybe together they capture at least part of what Christmas means to me.

Step inside your zebra-mind and glide.

Uh oh, Santa!

with 6 comments

Actually… what I did… I mean, it was ten o’clock in the morning, hardly anyone at the mall yet. Squeezing in a bit of last minute this and that…

I tried to photograph Santa having a quiet moment before the onslaught of the children. And he saw me. And got rather angry. Right after this he raised his arm up to block my shot, and he barked, “no photos!” To which I replied with all the incredulity of a four-year old, “What?!? I can’t take pictures of Santa?” And he said, ‘no’ and shook his head. And the girls in the front came to see what was up and there I was with my camera just wanting to take a photo of Santa in the mall… and they scowled and Santa scowled and well… it really was rather sad…

So I’ll be finding a nasty lump of coal in my stocking this year.

Sob, sob… oh Santa… how could you???
