Summer in South Africa…

A few weekends ago a sudden heat hit us – followed by 2 weeks of gloomy & rainy weather… Not that I care – I love rainy/dull weather!!! On this day a few weekends ago, this is what my car registered…

40 degrees Celcius… Hot hot hot!!!

Thank goodness it hasn’t been that hot since – but then… it is only the beginning of summer!!! … 🙂 **

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!!! 😀 **

Paris, France – Versailles Gardens

Visiting Versailles is such a special memory – although it was cold & misty on this day in December 2004 – it did not seize to take away the from the grand, majestic & royal air that Versailles presented to us that day!! 🙂

It amazed me that I could not see the end of the gardens – it was huge!! & beautiful… bustling with people & tourists!! The weather could not keep anyone away!!! 🙂

Endless stretch of Versailles gardens…

On our way to the train, after our visit to Versailles, me & my mom bought ourselves scarves at a vendor – I still wear it today!!! & each time I do – the memory of that day makes me smile – and wish to turn back time!!! 😀 **

Wonderful Weather &White…

. . . F L O W E R S ! ! ! 😀 **

Yesterday was crazy!! I worked crazy hard… & we had our year-end function last night (why would they do it in October? End of year is December… who on earth is going to have the motivation to work hard for another two months?? – – – crazy! ) 🙂 It was super fun though…. not as fun today!! & I only had two (big) glasses of wine!!! Does this mean I’m getting old?? oi oi oi!!! 😉

As mentioned in the title…. very beautiful day today… not to hot – not to cold – with a slight breeze!! We went to the Boere Mark this morning!! Always pleasurable!! (a few photographs will soon be posted!!) But for now… flowers to fit the weather… 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful weekend!! **
