Bees, bugs, birds – A week in the winter garden

Its mid-winter here, and as I write we are on our way to the shortest day of the year. Winter is when the deep orange aloes come to life in the wild, along the roads and in the gardens. The brightly coloured, tubular flowers that are filled with nectar are a welcome source of food … Continue reading Bees, bugs, birds – A week in the winter garden

Why publish an ebook?

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.

I tend to gravitate towards details and macros; shapes, patterns and textures and you can see some of those kinds of shots in my monthly posts. But I think I am beginning to understand how to compose a landscape shot and to make it my own - developing a style in this genre I suppose. If I look closely at them, I can also see shapes, textures and patterns within the bigger picture - my core style elements.

A Blog Spring Clean

Autumn greetings, readers! Do you feel the need to update your blog occasionally to keep it fresh and engaging? In South Africa, it's early autumn not spring! But I felt the need to do a little spring cleaning on my blog this weekend and to re-structure a little bit. We've had a few public holidays recently. I … Continue reading A Blog Spring Clean

My weekly "catch up with an old friend over a cup of coffee"

If we were having coffee… (2)

Last week I was inspired by writing a post to share updates "like catching up with an old friend over a cup of coffee". Here's my second go at it.
