Welcome to Everyday Delights
Every day, I try to find something extraordinary or special in the world around me. It’s about being present in the now. It’s about looking for the details in the colours, light, sounds, aromas, trying to see things from a fresh or different perspective. About celebrating and enjoying the routines of every day.
This blog is a place where I record what I notice. Initially, I started this as part of my 2015 100 Happy Days challenge, where I took a photo and wrote a related blog post, every day for 100 days. After that challenge finished, I decided to continue.
Many of my posts are photography related, as I am doing an ongoing 365 photography project (now in my 5th year). Some are musings on what life throws at me, and others are just about noticing the everyday delights in the world around me. Please join me on my search and in celebrating Everyday Delights.
Who am I?
I am a passionate, holistic photographer and enthusiastic blogger, looking for the many delights in the everyday mundane. I live in a small town in the Eastern Cape, South Africa and I have been taking photos since 1997 when I bought my first film SLR.
When I started this blog, I set myself some “Happiness Resolutions” (an idea I got from reading Gretchen Rubin). I review them every year and I use them as my guides in looking for Everyday Delights. They often appear as prompts in my blog posts, so look out for them.
