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, 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!

Winds of change

The weekly photo challenge this week asks us to share a photograph that signifies transitions and change... and to explore the ways in which a single photograph can express time, while only showing us a small portion of any given moment. For me the windmills, or rather wind pumps, of the Karoo endure across the years, they … Continue reading Winds of change

Zebra question I asked the zebra Are you black with white stripes? Or white with black stripes? And the zebra asked me, Or you good … Continue reading Are you black with white stripes?

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?
