I love Durban

My most successful WordPress blog post of all time is Thai Poosam Kavady.

It was viewed 549 times and liked by 49 bloggers over a lengthy period of seven (7) months.

I thought that was good until I posted my photo of Moyo at uShaka on the “I love Durban” Facebook page.

The photo went absolutely viral as far as my humble statistics go.

I love Durban, who has 84, 912 likes, have used it as their cover photo for five (5) consecutive days.

Since then and up until now, the photo has raked in 911 likes and 44 shares!

I am really feeling so honoured that they have used one of my photos as their profile photo and for all the likes and shares.

This really makes waking up at 05:00 in the cold of winter, so that I can get down to the beach by 05:30 to await first light, so worth it.

It makes the sitting for three hours straight sometimes trying to post-process one HDR photo feel like a holiday.

It confirms that my Canon 550D with the standard “poor” 18-55mm lens is a powerful tool.

It makes me glad I never bought a Nikon (joking 😉 ).

It makes my self-taught amateur photographer status mean something.

The post with the subject photo is due out on 23 August 2013, but it can be viewed here right now or glimpsed below.
