Good Morning Durban!

“You want more, and that’s good, very good. More money, love, energy, laughter. Okay, just remember that these “things” lie only a thought away; not a career away, not a year away, not a lucky break away, not a relationship away… just a thought away. Okay?” ~ The Universe

I guess it’s like: Make one big and radical decision today that will steer your ship in a whole new direction and change your life for the better.

It’s freezing this morning in Durban (anything below 12 deg. C. is freezing in these parts) and despite waking up at 05h00, then 06h00, there was going to be nil chance of any sunrise photos in the rain.

I previously displayed a photo of this boat and the fishermen pulling in their net, but no birds in view. I’ve now found a photo from the same sunrise morning that has three seagulls stalking the incoming net from the boat; also with Moses Mabhida Stadium in the background.

I’ve never really watched the Ellen DeGeneres show but watched her andWill Smith this morning invite a lady teacher onto stage. The teacher confirmed that she uses her own money to fund a certain after-school activity for children. The children, who were present at the show (unbeknown to the teacher) then came onstage and did their activity. The children then realised that they were in the presence of Will. The teacher then got given a cheque for $10 000. The looks on the faces of all involved throughout this entire part of the show was something to behold; the good feelings I felt inside were empowering and hugely inspirational. Good one Ellen, Will, teacher and children!

Canon G3X, F 5.6, 600 mm, ISO 125, 1/250 sec hand-held, RAW

PS – Janvier previously queried the slow SS for handheld at 600 mm. I’ve found that fairly good stabilisation can be achieved with this camera by going down low and resting ones hands on the ground or up high on / against poles. The internal Canon / Canon South Africa stabilisation no doubt plays a big part as well.
