It’s week 11 already?

Posted by on Mar 11, 2014 in Personal | Comments Off on It’s week 11 already?

This picture is of Candice.  One of my brides to be.  I didn’t actually prep for my photo project.  I haven’t in a while actually, but during her and Mark’s photo session I saw an opportunity to capture this photo.  It resonated with me.  Why?  Because it embodies everything I want to be (carefree, euphoric, happy, content etc etc) Everybody gets their ups and downs.  I have had my fair share of them.  Most of the days I succeed in being chipper and positive.  Some days I just want to go all cookie monster on people, but I get through it.  Because… those...

Week 5 – Dreamy bubbles

Posted by on Feb 3, 2014 in Personal | Comments Off on Week 5 – Dreamy bubbles

This is Bokeh… or as some of us call it ‘dreamy bubbles’. My head is constantly filled with dreamy bubbles. When I’m not photographing and I ‘zone out’ as my friends say, I’d like to think that this is what the image in my head would look like. Most of my friends know that I am very bad at concentrating. I sometimes interupt people while they are speaking to say something. Strangers might think that I am rude. Friends know if I don’t say it at that moment I forget what I wanted to say and then end up frustrated. I have appallingly bad...

Child’s play

Over the weekend I had a chance to visit with my best friend Monika.  We took a drive to Strand where I spent a lovely morning entertaining her awesome kids.  People often ask me why my husband and I decided not to have kids, and while it is a personal matter which I won’t go into much detail about, we don’t plan to have them soon.  That doesn’t mean though that I don’t love children.  I’m the aunty that runs around the shopping centre with your child making monster noises.  The aunty that teaches you how to break off leaves on house plants (this is a...

{Project 52} Week 3

Posted by on Jan 20, 2014 in Personal | Comments Off on {Project 52} Week 3

My project series is taking a bit of a turn, I had to share these series of images with you of my little nephew Lourens.  On a sunny sunday morning, while everyone was busy waking up, we played make believe.  I love playing make-believe, now at almost 30 I still do it.  That is why I chose photography.  Though on my journey i started losing sight of who I am and what I love doing.  I love playing games with my nephew, i don’t do it often because I am always busy.  I love dancing.  I don’t go dancing because I’m always busy.  I love going out with my best friend and...

Week 2 : The hoarder

Posted by on Jan 14, 2014 in Personal | Comments Off on Week 2 : The hoarder

  This is my flower crown stand… It is an old chicken mesh and rusted wire bird house which I never ended up hanging outside as a bird feeder.  Yes, my house is full of unfinished projects ‘that I’ll get round to’ .  If you know me personally, you will know that I am a bit of a hoarder…  Evident from my extensive book collection (which I also haven’t read much of, because ‘I’m going to take a day off and just read’ at some point in the future)  Well I did finish two books over christmas, as that felt like the only excuse suitable...

Posted by on Jan 11, 2014 in Personal | Comments Off on 52 Week Photo Challenge – Week 1

I’m a bit late with uploading my images, but this was the first photo in my challenge series. The purpose of the 52 week series is to challenge myself to be more creative, and to see the beauty in every day. An image from my desk.   I spend so many hours at my desk that I rarely take time to actually look at how pretty I have tried to make my limited...
