Lightning Storm

“Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials” – Lin Yutang

Good morning Durban the weekend is nearly here!

There was no chance of a decent sunrise this morning and I did not get to shoot the lightning storm last night.

Work has slowed down to a chug-chug so no need to hit the road early.

I therefore sat and played this morning with one of my old beachfront images and another lightning image to make my own Durban lightning storm composite image.

If you don’t try…

Good morning Umhlanga Neighbourhood.

I had a saying in my early 20’s:

“If you don’t try you will never know; I tried and now I know!”

Despite the drizzling weather before sunrise today, I went out with my Canon South Africa Canon 5D Mark IV this morning.

I’m happy with this Illovo Sugar image below and look forward to working on other images I took of theKPMG / KPMGPran BoulevardRidgeside Office Park, Umhlanga RidgeShree Property Holdings, FNB, RMB Private Bank buildings.

Your life can change in an instant

Your life can change in an instant so enjoy this Friday it might very well be your last!

A couple of weeks ago I attended a wedding shot by Tyrone Crossman, who I understand is a very sought after “Indian” wedding photographer.

I had my little Canon South Africa GX3 camera with me a took a few snaps…

The bride’s humour seemed to change, not instantly, between snap 1 and snap 2 (taken 10 minutes later).

In her defence load-shedding by Eskom kicked-in affecting the church and the car in which she was waiting did not have it’s air-con on…

The Blood Moon

‘Fifty-four years after releasing their debut album,The Rolling Stones are in the recording studio working on their next one.

When Keith Richards was asked why, at the age of 74 with over $300million in the bank, he feels the need to write a new album, he replied, “If I’m not composing, I’m decomposing.”

Richards was then asked “But don’t you find it stressful working 12 hours a day at the age of 74?” He replied: “Stress isn’t working 12 hours a day doing a job you love. Stress is working 8 hours a day doing a job you hate.”

Harvard psychologist Shawn Achor says that the happiest people are those that express themselves and create everyday ….. whether this is a song, a soufflé, a spreadsheet …. or whatever …. the choice is yours’ ~ Sunil Bali

The passing of the Blood Moon over Durban South Africa would just not feel right for me unless I got a bit creative.
