Shine

Depending on their orientation, some of the Buildings on the Atlantic Seaboard, get a golden glow as the sun starts to set. Shining off the glazed facades of the higher, more visible buildings as well as the water, this glow is visible from far away.
Shine is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of Sunset and the reflection off the buildings are my response to the prompt.

One Love

Bob Marley’s “One Love” asked “What about – ? Let’s get together and feel all right”, perhaps we can take a few cues from the Animal Kingdom 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge : Muse

Regular readers of my blog may have noticed tha the Sea Point Promenade has featured in a few of my posts over the years. Literally down the road from the City Centre, the promenade is a lively walkway above the sea wall along the Atlantic Seaboard. Weather has a large influence in ensuring this is a changing environment. Anything from raging storms, high winds, dramatic clouds with crashing waves to perfectly placid waters with Seagulls and Paragliders floating over can be encountered there. Facing West, it is the perfect foreground for sunsets into the sea, which introduces another dimension. This dynamic environment has numerous photographic opportunities, and is a muse for many a photographer, myself included.

Muse is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and a variety of images taken along the Promenade are my response to the prompt.

Weekly Photo Challenge : Dreamy

While walking through Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens recently, I came upon this Spotted Owl in a nest, possibly sitting on some eggs. She turned her head, had a good look at me, and slowly eased back into the dreamy mode again :-):-). Dreamy is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week………..
