If you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen!
Thank you Joop for an awesome evening and yet another top quality SA steak: pan-fried pepper steak medium-rare with chips and a bottle of Stellenbosch Vineyards Zonnebloem.

“What is this self inside us, this silent observer, Severe and speechless critic, who can terrorize us, And urge us on to futile activity, And in the end, judge us still more severely, For the errors into which his own reproaches drove us?” – T. S. Eliot
Prakash Bhikha and I hit the shores of Ballito Beach this morning. Afterwards it was The Coffee Guys – South Beach for the 2nd fix of the morning.

We had a comedy of errors / mishaps this morning (Sun 15 Jan 2017) one hour before sunrise.
Shane Newman was missing a section of tripod so I said use mine. As Shane used mine the head broke!
We used Shane’s T-shirt and cap to rest our cameras on rocks and managed to get some shots although mine (attached) is a little fuzzy on the left side.
Neil Hellerle did fine I think as he had taped his tripod together
It looks like two of us are going tripod shopping soon

It was very clear from our recent trip to Cape Town that all our other municipalities / tourism boards could learn a lot locally instead of looking abroad for inspiration.
Florida Road with SPIGA Durban Sidebar Cubana Havana Lounge Cubana Florida Road,DurbanCappello Florida Road Keys on Florida give one a minuscule taste of what Beerhouse Stones Long Street Beuna Vista, Social Cafe and others offer inLong Street Cape Town, South Africa and surrounding areas.
I guess that’s why a lot of my friends say: I love Cape Town.
The Victoria Wharf, V & A Waterfront, Cape Town in photo is another story for another day.

If you haven’t yet seen my photo exhibition then amble over to Sidebar / SPIGA Durban at 200 Florida Road and go checkout my classic Durban photos, canvas mounted by Printwild and chosen by the restaurant owner himself.
Lovely Italian food, wine and coffee is on sale. You can sit inside or on the pavement cafe. It you haven’t been there you are missing out.
The photos are on display until the end of 2016.
I went to the Canon Roadshow in Durban on Saturday gone and each of the speakers spoke to at least one of my internal “feeders / triggers”.
Powerful thought provoking stuff!
Earlier today I viewed a Facebook post for a short while about someone whinging about what they believe others should not be doing (which I highly suspect they are not capable of doing themselves).
If you believe this negativity (limiting tunnel-vision nonsense) you might as well dig a hole and stay in it forever!
The upshot is that ALL of this motivated me to go and play on my 30″ monitor for a few hours to try and create some magic.
Like my good mate Jason says: “Don’t forget to remember”: – Don’t limit yourself by the whining of others, go out and get what you want; believe in yourself even if others don’t!

I received the official poster yesterday from First Thursdays Durban.
My first ever photo exhibition prompted by Marco of Spiga Florida Road.
Bongani Mtolo of ECR Newswatch (ECR) will be doing a live broadcast and some great tunes look to be lined up for inside Sidebar next to SPIGA Durban.
A wonderful Durban evening not to be missed!
