Stuck on you

What is guaranteed to distract you? What is your “Ooh, shiny!”? asks a WordPress employee who proclaims:  “I like to think of myself as a focused, disciplined person. I make lists, I schedule my day, I plan my work and work my plan.” I wished I could proclaim that I am an ode to discipline but […]

Elemental my dear WordPress

By this time the sleuths out there has intellectually reprimanded me for forcing the Elemental photo challenge onto the Sherlock Holmes domain as we all know he said: Elementary my dear Watson. After careful consideration of the matter I have deducted that he didn’t say either so he could just as well have said elemental. […]

A tale of 2 textures

At the time of taking this photo I was surprised by the result showcasing the texture of the elephant’s skin. While it has “major” wrinkles it also has minor wrinkles on the “islands” created by the major wrinkles. Both the major and minor wrinkles has been flattened out on the top of the tail, as […]

satisfaction is spelt MTB

The Weekly WordPress Satisfaction themed photo challenge made me ponder somewhat as in principle it gives me satisfaction to squeeze a button to produce images. Thus theoretically any photos squeezed out by me will do. But this time round I am focusing on the satisfaction itself and not the photos. As a matter of fact […]

Collating construction couture

No I am not referring to clothing worn in the construction industry being modeled on the runways of Milan and Paris. A bridge built long ago just was’t fashionable anymore. It stood in the way of the road being broadened, in the way of more runways for vehicles in there fashionable Pirellis. This collage certainly […]

To my English enabled friends here is the “executive” summary: I am telling my blogging friends to metaphorically come and explore First and Second Waterfall with me. It is in an amazingly beautiful area namely Jonkershoek Nature reserve outside Stellenbosch, South Africa and I described some of it briefly in the WP Narrow photo challenge 2nd […]

Breath giving bread

This week, share a photograph that signifies transitions and change to you… while only showing us a small portion of any given moment. Is it only me or is there a similarity in this week and last week’s challenges: transient – transition – time – impermanence – change; never mind it is only me. As I […]

Care-free abundant impermanence

“Drifters, nomads, and even the state of impermanence: this week, share your photos of transient.” The abstract challenge this week made me wonder and ponder and wonder again. But my impermanent ideas were continuously overruled by other impermanent ideas… Eventually I decided to focus on a passage in my children lives namely the pre-teen years. […]

NOODLANDING: Bloemfontein

Dit is nag, ook idiomaties. In die konteks van ‘n noodlanding is die naderende aanloopbaan intimiderend en vreesaanjaend maar ook adrenalienwekkend. Binne ‘n paar 100m gaan ons land en die flitsende ligte van die groot hoeveelheid ambulanse, brandweerwaens, polisie en weermagvoertuie weerskante van die aanloopbaan, raak al hoe duideliker. Ek vermoed dit is die adrenalien wat die […]
