Before Sunrise V2

Posted in 2014 and reworked after placing in recent VSS CREATIVE virtual camera club monthly. Hein Waschefort had to help me remember that this was my photo (never happened before!). The original annotation is below:

Henry and I nearly canned this morning’s shoot as the weather looked bland – cloudless – a bad mistake (lesson) we have learnt before. We therefore ambled down to Bluff, Durban and soon made pigs of ourselves with some slight pink – orange skies, white water on an incoming high with oodles of passion and energy.

I saw a lovely quote a few minutes ago (thank you Hein and Jeremy; it was on a post you made & commented on).

“You only get one sunrise and one sunset a day, and you only get so many days on the planet. A good photographer does the math and doesn’t waste either.” ~ Galen Rowell

PS: love that saying and reinforces what I said at recent Hillcrest Camera Club talk (09/2015).. you can look at the weather forecast and be unsure / wrong; rather just head out to shoot and if heavy rain stops you so be it

Today (16 August 2015) is Tanya Vermeulen De Vries‘s birthday. She is a kind caring soul who is the Mother of all Mother’s. Highly capable in the home and at work, and now resident overseas. She has had to carry the unbearable burden of an incomprehensible loss, and I sincerely hope that today and from hereon she is blessed tremendously – and will now start to reap the benefits of her goodness.

This photo was called “Another Blessing”. I made some cosmetic changes this morning and version 2 is called “Tanya”.

Good morning Durban!

“O nectar’s son, o traveller, o child of immortality, sing the song of strength. Sing the song of triumph. March forward fearlessly and reach the goal of union with God. O pilgrim, tread the path of truth. Meditate. Hear the voice of God within your heart. Then you will enjoy real peace and bliss” ~ Sri Swami Sivananda

Durban: sun, fun & sport 4 final

“Durban is a natural paradise known for its gorgeous coastline of sun-kissed beaches and subtropical climate, situated on the eastern seaboard of Africa. The City is built around one of the busiest ports in Africa and our people are our pride. The city focuses on providing visitors with a unique set of experiences that go beyond the beach and into the realm of Durban’s diverse culture, urban lifestyle and scenic diversity. The City of Durban is an elegant, mature and ambitious city. It is a trendsetter in offering great lifestyle, speckled with adventure activities, blessed with natural beauty and is an astonishingly liveable city. Whether you here as a business delegate or a leisure traveler there is a warm African flavor that will capture your heart forever” ~ Durban Experience.

I Survived

“I survived because the fire inside burned brighter than the fire around me. Waging war against good people is bad for the soul. This may not seem important to you now, but it’s the most important thing I’ve said. In a world filled with misery and uncertainty, it is a great comfort to know that, in the end, there is light in the darkness.” ~ Joshua Graham

The accompanying photo “I Survived” (with proof that there is light in the darkness 😉 ) was posted earlier than intended after I saw the JG quote last night (09 April 2015) on clarity.advising on Instagram.

Also, two friends especially enjoyed the JG and Lenny K quotes so I found one more apt JG quote, which I placed above and have included my all-time fave below:

“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.” ~ Mary Anne Radmacher
