storm season

It has been a stormy summer so far ,we get woken up by thunder and lightning in the middle of the night,day storms are my favorite and if I can I'm there on my Venue to take pictures it feels a bit dangerous as well not only the sky looks like a threat to all of us the sound is overwhelming the winds make you feel nervous the lightning so dominant ..

Orchids at the wedding of Peter and Eshana

my bag

I love my bag so much ! made by myself.


Like sitting on the balcony on full moon

Today dingo has not been home yet ,he wanted to go outside early this morning and so I opened the door for him just like every day.
I always worry about him my friends say not to do so but i try and try and for short periods it works ...but not today...He must be busy doing his cat stuff you know sniffing ,marking the whole neighborhood yes that is just what it is I keep reminding myself..he is a cat and wants to do cat things.

I follow me

I followed myself in footprints left by people before me...just like me they "must" have treasured this place surrounded by the ocean.

have a cup of tea first

I love to browse on markets especially when there is second hand section I found this lovely cup in perfect condition for something close to nothing.
Wonder if I ever will find a second one.

my Dingo

You are so nice my little boy
your tail so tall,your ears so beautiful your voice loud and clear..i wish I could have you around me always and everywhere I go.

two shadows

Two shadows is a simple yet moving story about two woman exploring the mangroves on a hot summer day ,they were prepared and armed with cold tea and plenty clothes to wear,beautiful garments fit for a queen and so lovely to the eye ,they were in the mood and danced there way through sand and sea capturing everything what the eyes' could see,laughing could be heard from far away another shadow following them..Tax, Mady's best friend was never far behind.

I love you mama and that will never disappear,you have, you live somewhere so far away,I don't know this place.
Can I ever imagine what your home would look like,does it have a guest room for me so I can stay for a little while ,i have learned to live with not knowing where you are , the missing of not having a mum is just so hard.
