Re-living Rock-climbing…

As promised I am uploading a few more pics from our rock-climbing activity!! If you missed the previous post – click hERE!!! 😀 **

I am also new to Flickr & have not yet uploaded photos there, so I have decided in order not to crowd my blog, I’ll post one or two photos here – but I’ll provide you with the links to my flickr sets & you can browse the remaining photos there 🙂 !!!

To see a few more colour photographs of our day – click here!! 🙂 Please please please have a look & as always I adore & appreciate your comments immensely!!! Soooo… click H E R E now!!! 😀 **

I have manipulated the same colour images in B/W and loved the results!! I think it’s because of the monotonous colours that the BW really makes quite an impression!!! For my black&white set click HERE !!! 😀 Once again, have a look and leave a thought please!!! 🙂 **

Hope you enjoy my rock-climbing encore!! 😀 **

Rock-Climbing the Magaliesberg !!!

A few months ago a few of us decided to go rock-climbing on a farm outside of the city. This used to be a favourite sport with He-who-thinks-he’s-boss… but over the years this activity has subsided into nothingness!!! Nevertheless, we went rock-climbing (my first time mind you!! 🙂 ). Here is one of my favourite shots of the day!! …

Maybe I’ll share one or two more with you in the future!! 😀 **

Rugby World Cup!!!

So, today marks a highly anticipated day throughout South Africa – – – & I believe in a lot of other countries as well!!!! Today was the kick-off of the Rugby World Cup 2011. Myself not being at all bothered about the sport makes me socially inapt (at least in this country!!!). 🙂 When I logged onto facebook today, my whole screen exploded with images of the south african flag, or a springbok, or both!!!! Crazy…. 😉

I decided that today’s post – – – to keep in the spirit of the event – – – should be at least related to the big RWC!!!!

I took this pic a few years back with my normal samsung digital camera at a game between the Springboks and Ireland/Wales (or someone of sorts… oops!!!)

In the most excited tone that I could muster….: “Gooooooooo bokke!!!!!!” 😉
