Weekly Photo Challenge : Escape

Sea Point Promenade along the Atlantic Seaboard is where many City folk head to after a busy day, or over the weekend to “escape” the buzz of the city. A gentle meander hugging the coastline, walkers, joggers, cyclists, rollerbladers, young and old come together to enjoy the tranquillity and sea air. This tranquillity can sometimes be negatively influenced by weather, either strong winds or high seas change the space dramatically. I was there recently, during high seas, camera in hand, and watched curious onlookers make a hasty “escape” as the waves crashed onto the sea wall. These images are my response to the weekly photo challenge’s “escape” prompt……….the journey continues……..

Weekly Photo Challenge : Lost in the details

Some of my recent posts have featured images from my recent vist to the Addo Elephant Park, near Port Elizabeth. The Park is home to all of the big 5, though the Elephants outnumber all the other animals substantially. One is very fortunate to be able get close enough to these “gentle giants” to be able to get “lost in the details” which happens to be the prompt for the Weekly Photo Challenge this week. Watching them move about so gracefully, feeding, drinking and socialising amongst themselves without appearing to be hindered by the human intervention in their environment is indeed a privelage. I took the opportunity to look a little closer at these wonderful animals, todays “lost in the details” images are some of the resulting images…………….the journey continues…………

Weekly Photo Challenge : Forward

Muizenberg Beach – half an hours drive from the centre of Cpae Town, probably one of the most popular surfing beaches in the region. Weekends are when most surfers arrive, ranging from novices to experts, all clad in wetsuits, clutching some variation of a surfing device, be it a long board, surf board, paddle board, wave board, believe me, you’ll see them all here. Some of them arrive as early as dawn to catch the early wave, others arrive at their leisure, one things for sure everybody seems to be moving forward in some sort of way, even if its only standing on the baord heading towards the shore…:-). So my post responding to the “Forward” prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge has images of some of these “forward” moving surfers
…………..the journey continues…..
