An update post…

Update post?? What is that anyway?? Well… let me tell you:

First off – I have created a Facebook Page!! I know, what have I got to offer?? Not much – yet… 😉 But I plan on having some fun projects on there – cool articles (being that about travel, photography or whatever…) This page links to my blog – – – It is not a business, just a fun place to hang out!! So, follow the link on my homepage or click here to join in!! I am hoping to build a community with similar interests & in turn maybe also get/make the time to do more photography (&develop this skill!!!) – hopefully you can learn with me by joining in my ‘Photography To Do’s’… 😀

Tilt-Shift Photography – My first Facebook Page Challenge/Project +
a surprise new watermark!!!

As you can see – I have already posed myself a new photography challenge to develop a new skill!!! Tilt-shift photography – I am taking a normal photo and changing it to make it look like a miniature model!!! (You might recognise this photo from my Edmonton posts!! 😉 ) If you want, join me on my page & we’ll share, grow & develop our passion!! 🙂

Secondly – I have a new watermark!! As you have probably realized, I have not used my previous one for almost 6 months – simply because I was not crazy about it!! 😦 But I made a point of it today to make one that I am at least a little excited about!! & voila!! So, what do you think?? 🙂

Thirdly – along the same lines… I have joined NickExposed in a collaboration with Seeing Spots Photo with their Long Exposure Project!! The gallery was released today – go and have a peek!!! They are going to release their third collaboration theme soon… so sign-up to join in – It’s free & fun!!! 😀

Fourthly – It is C.R.A.Z.Y cold here this weekend!!!! & I mean really cold!!! (although not minus temperatures, I find that I’m colder here than I was in Canada with the minusses…) Why?? Because here in South Africa we are not equipped for the cold – if it is cold outside, it is cold inside as well – which is awful!!! I love the winter for the heaters and the blankets etc…. so loving this weekend!!! 🙂

That’s it for my update post!!! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!!! 😀 **

Austria, Vienna – Schonbrunn Palace

Travel Lane Memory for this week Is from Austria!!! It was probably the coldest day of my life…. (or at least one that was cold enough for the memory to stick!!!) 😀 The mist was like ice mist…. – – – I know I know… for those of you who are constantly posting photos of snow… we don’t have snow here in South Africa… it is something unknown to me!!! So, “ice mist/rain” counts as coldest for me!!! – – – 😉

Anyway back to the Travel Lane Memory… This was taken in 2004 on my trip with my mommy (seen in the frame of my photograph)… On this day we visited the Schonbrunn Palace (apologies… I don’t know how to put the ” on the o…)!!! 😀 It was gorgeous… Even in winter the gardens was breathtaking!!! I loved everything about Vienna…. & I’m longing to return there as quick as possible!!! 🙂

Schonbrunn Palace - my Mom on the left!!!

& let me not forget… Happy Valentines Day to all you romantics out there!!! (I am not a fan of V-day… luckily He-who-thinks-he’s-boss is also not into it!!!) But in the light of all the looooooove going round today, I’m dedicating this part of the post to my gorgeous bf!!! 😀

Happy Valentines Day!!! 😀

Winter is saying goodbye…

The last two days have really shown a sudden change in weather. The cold has gone & the heat has arrived – – – suddenly. South Africa’s weather has a mind of its own. This photo was taken at the end of autumn/beginning of winter this year (end May). I’ve taken quite a few photos of spring starting to show its colours (which I will post asap!).
