Anatomy of a thunderstorm

Recently, as a thunderstorm approached I was around to see how it developed. Of course, I had my camera to capture it.¬†I live on a hill that overlooks the town and have taken a ton of photographs with the tag ‚Äėview from my lounge‚Äô. I am so fortunate to have a stunning view which changes … Continue reading Anatomy of a thunderstorm

On wish-ing and self-care

We are suffering from a severe drought - the dams that feed our small town are at dangerously low levels. In fact so many areas of South Africa are struggling, Cape Town is possibly the worst at the moment. So we have been wishing for rain (and my contribution for¬†One Word Sunday: Wish). And this … Continue reading On wish-ing and self-care

Sharing themes and images from my eBook

The countdown begins

The countdown begins. I am about to publish my first eBook on Everyday Delights.  The book is called "Documenting a 100 Happy Day Project" which is a compilation of posts from my first blog in 2015. That original blog site has now disappeared. This book is a two part compilation of those stories and high-quality photographs from 2015 written for the blog.

For me, quirky decor is about the creative juxtaposition¬†of items, re-using sold stuff in original ways, striking colour combinations and so on. For me, the arrangement of the items in the pic below is an example of … Continue reading Quirky wall displays

Life through a wing mirror

The prompt for this week's Weekly Photo Challenge is 'Collage'. This is a hard one for me because I love to think creatively about how to work with many photos at one and I have so many to choose from! Here's a favourite that I did last year (2016), but, be warned I may share more!

The story of ‘Periscope’

This photo is one of my all time favourites and one that gets a lot of likes on the photography sites I belong to. So I did an imaginary interview with myself to tell the story of this photograph. * Where did you take this photo? This was taken at a listed building in Grahamstown, … Continue reading The story of ‘Periscope’

Finding the hidden corners of my town

I am now well into the 4th year of my 365 photography project. In the time I have been doing it, I thought that I had thoroughly exhausted photographing my town. It's a small place and even though it is classified as a city because of its cathedral, it is really just a small country … Continue reading Finding the hidden corners of my town
