Curves, six-word‚Äč stories & orange

It has been such a week. On one hand it felt like October would never end, but on the other, it went in a flash. The flexible nature of time, I suppose. I have had no time to write any posts or take photos, even though there are loads of good challenges happening. So, I thought I'd do one post with multiple challenges for this week.

Stories that windows tell

Stained glass windows in churches often portray religious stories or well-known figures such as archangels, saints and so on. But I believe that the everyday, common windows around us have stories of their own - intentional or unintentional. A window can 'tell' its story in so many ways: through the items placed on their¬†sills, what … Continue reading Stories that windows tell

Waiting to be part of the pack

Last December, we went to a local game reserve as a family. Our accommodation was in a fenced off area so our dogs could come too, without disturbing the game. There was a large open-air area for communal cooking and eating, which conveniently had gates to keep animals out.

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
