TO Strand Holiday

Last week we headed down to TO Strand for the last of the school holidays and since all the other schools had already started, the park was quite empty.  This is one of the better caravan parks as the facilities are clean, the sites are awesome, the staff are friendly and helpful, and of course the beach is a stones throw away.  We had an amazing time with more highs than … [Read more...]

Garden inspiration on a rainy day

I get cabin fever very quickly so after two days of rain recently I was itching to do something.  Looking out of the dining room window I saw some regular visitors of the feathered kind and that got me excited to get the camera out and snap away.  Of course by the time I was ready and armed the birds had flown away but none the less I was still inspired.  The birds were … [Read more...]

Umhlanga Lagoon

Just after the new year started Mandy, the kids and I walked from Umhlanga to Umdloti along the beach.   We often walk along the beach to the Umhlanga lagoon and have always wanted to do the full walk so it was a good time to make that wish come true.  Along the way we came across a set of rocks that had been scoured out by some rough seas and that we had not seen before.  This … [Read more...]

Engagement shoot with Trevor and Kelly

We were all very excited when Kelly burst into the office one morning recently sporting enough bling to get any solar powered enthusiast excited.  I volunteered my services to do an engagement shoot so this Friday was the day.  Trevor brought along the apple of his eye, and Kelly of course, so there was a lot of love in the air.  I had chosen an out of the way venue which I … [Read more...]

Transkei getaway with my twin brother Part Two

Day Three continued... Day Four This was our last full day of the holiday so we had to make the most of it (as if the hyperactive past few days didn't count) so we headed out early and tried our luck at fishing at Umdumbi point once again. Same result... We then headed home, and after breakfast, made our way back to Umdumbi point but this time continued … [Read more...]

Transkei getaway with my twin brother Part One

I decided that I needed a break from work, as much as I love my job, as my brain was feeling like it had been stretched to it's limits and was like a squeezed out sponge.  The only problem was trying to find a few days that I wasn't already booked for and could get away with as little disruption as possible.  I was prepared to go on my own but thankfully my twin brother Warren … [Read more...]

Huge waves at the Durban beachfront

The waves are pummeling the Durban Beachfront causing damage to a lot of structures.  This morning I went down to photograph the waves and was surprised how rough the sea was with waves washing right up onto the promenade.  I went towards the end of Newpier and promptly got soaked by a huge wave(there is an amazing photo of some surfers being smashed by a huge wave on the end … [Read more...]

21st Birthday Celebration at The Boathouse with Delio

You never know what to expect at a 21st Birthday celebration but I did leave this one thinking Wow that was cool.  The event was held at the Boathouse in Ballito which is always a good start as it has stunning views and the service is excellent.  I was blown away by the decor, done by Function Foods, and how much attention had been spent on all the finer details.  It could … [Read more...]

Vodacom Durban July 2016 at Greyville Racecourse

This was a freezing cold day by Durban's standards so thank goodness the action was hot.  I also kept warm by walking around the entire venue too many times to remember for either work or stupidity by forgetting a spare battery in the car, which obviously was parked on the farthest side of the grounds.  I managed to capture my clients work as well as some of the general … [Read more...]

St John’s Festival at the Roseway Waldorf School

This has got to be the most exciting festival in the year at the Roseway Waldorf School, well it is  in our house anyway.  The children spend a lot of time making their special lanterns and can't wait to show the other classes theirs and also to see what the other classes have done as well.  This year was special for our family as it was Thomas's first and Emily's last St … [Read more...]
