Good morning Durban!

“Every compliment, criticism, promotion, setback, good vibe, cough or really long line you have to wait in is a gift that was meticulously designed to make possible your becoming more than who you were and, ultimately, happier than ever before, as we dance into forever” ~ The Universe

Shine your Light on Another

As Marianne Williamson says, “As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

“Not only is rediscovering our own light liberating for ourselves, but it inevitably lends support to those who might desperately need some love. There’s nothing quite so humbling, so real, as being able to be even a glimmer of hope in someone’s storm” ~ www.aimhappy.com

Early Monday morning “meditation” done by processing three images from my photo shoot on Sunday morning.

Ready to crack the work week! Wishing all of you a splendid week to shine your light on another.

PS: I’ve found a lovely blog about heart disease “the silent killer”. If you get some time do read some of the articles, which tell you what a lot of doctors don’t:

Coming Alive

“It is better to believe than to disbelieve; in so doing you bring everything to the realm of possibility” – Albert Einstein
 
It’s been just over 5 months since my Canon 6D saw the waterline at Yacht-mole.
 
This morning I raced down to uShaka Beach to Moyo Ushaka at 04:00 and shot the beautiful sunrise.
 
That sunrise, water and sea-sand between the toes, summer, being alive, happy, breathing feeling cannot be described; it has to be experienced!
 
It looks like the Moyo Ushaka & Bass City Presents: Summer In Paradise (SIP) is on and renovations are nearly finished, but that’s Warren Branigan‘s field of expertise.
 
As always, the shoot ended with a hot filter coffee from The Coffee Guys – South Beach and a lovely chat with Prakash.
 
Have a lovely Sunday good people ❤️❤️❤️

Umhlanga Life

“When coasting in our comfort zones, we don’t grow. We continue to do more of the same…. Maintaining a comfort zone can, paradoxically, lead to discomfort in the long run. If by being comfortable we avoid important life issues, internal tension accumulates…. Eventually, as both internal and external pressures for change persist, the ‘comfort zone’ ceases to serve us.” – Eric Allenbaugh

Warren asked for a photo so I pulled out an old Umhlanga Rocks, KwaZulu-Natal shot and worked on it from scratch. A little rusty but had fun.
