Joining the lovely Marcia for our now monthly photo challenge. The challenge for this month is PATTERNS
These batch of pictures were all taken today
And these at random times
I hope you are having a nice and restful weekend. Hope you play along xxx
Joining Marcia for this month’s photo challenge. Looking up!
Simple rules: 5 pictures, have fun and link to Marcia
And there are my 5. All taken in the last 2 weeks
Joining Marcia again this month on the photo challenge. The theme this time around is BROWN!
I battled with this challenge all week because I just didn’t want to take the obvious brown nature pictures, but then had a light bulb moment today, I have loads of brown around my house…
So here we go (I need a lot of luck as I’m posting this from my phone)
Trust you are having a great weekend xxx
A view of one part of my lounge. A lot of brown 🙂
Another view of the lounge. Wooden frame around the wood burnig fire place
Brown beads on the bottom of a handmade candle. A gift from hubby Isn’t it just too pretty to light
An ice cream nut cake on a river of goey yummy chocolate sauce 🙂
A brown ediffice
Our photo challenge for March is MOVEMENT. Not an easy task, because how do you capture movement in pictures, but this is one theme I was very much looking forward to. Can’t wait to see all the different interpretations of this theme.
The usual rules apply… 5 pics and an added rule for this theme pictures taken from different vantage points.
Closing Ceremony at AF.CON 2013 taken from my vantage point at the stadium
Electrifying atmosphere, I literally sat on my edge of my seat all through the game except of course when the goal was scored- I choose the wrong time to answer the call of nature 😉 😉 🙂 🙂
If you can bear the noise (I had ear plugs) and the crowd, nothing beats watching a soccer game live. Though if you are like my hubby anything more than 10 people will scare the beje.sus out of you 🙂 plus he says he doesn’t want to watch people kicking around a ball for 90 mins (good thing he doesn’t like cricket either)
A gaggle tanning after a dip. These geese all go into the water for a quick dip and then line up facing the sun and go back in for a dip again then tan again. Must be so much fun. Good I didn’t end up in the water while trying to get this picture
Did you know that a flock of geese, if not in flight, is sometimes called a GAGGLE. Now you know 🙂
Commuters at the train station
One of my favourite past time is people watching…. I try to imagine what is going on in people’s minds as they go about their normal everyday activities this picture I took coming down the stairs while rushing to catch the train(as usual)
Another one of my people watching exercise 😉 😉 I took this while doing a not so fast walk on the treadmill – I have a love/hate relationship with this particular gym equipment, I would rather walk outdoors
Hope you will join the photo fun?
Have a lovely weekend xxx
Marcia is hosting the Monthly photo challenge and I am joining in again. A reminder post was done for this, but if you know me and pictures, I don’t need a reminder 🙂
This month’s theme is SELF-PORTRAITS.
I find it interesting that many people say they don’t like pictures of themselves. I love love love love taking self-portraits and the only way I was able to narrow this down to the mandatory 5 pictures was to decide on a theme, and my chosen theme for this was my shoes (ha ha ha ha ha no surprises there)
Enough rambling, take a walk in my shoes for a week… Please pardon the quality of the pictures – all taken indoors using my phone 🙂
Added bonus for indulging my shoe fetish….
BB-ography. Taken on my 7th wedding anniversary 🙂
Have a nice weekend all xxx
New Year, New photo challenge. I am joining Marcia again this month for the photo challenge (You all know I can’t resist any opportunity to post pictures 😉 )
This month’s challenge is FACES… (there’s a song playing in my head about faces or people (from a popular TV series, but I can’t seem to remember the lyrics or a the series)
No, I didn’t turn this picture around, this was the way it was taken 😉
A thrill ride would do this to anyone’s face (I guess). Sorry dear cousin 😉
My neighbour’s puppy (Diesel). We both have Rottweilers. We have they 2, they have 5 I think!!! I just looooove puppy faces. CUTE
Mr RED FACE This cracks me up every time I see it…
I saw MRS Shiny RED Face yesterday and just couldn’t resist
And a little icing on the cake
Self Portrait taken (a few months ago) to show off my hair and not my face, but it fits the theme
I can’t believe it is the middle of the month already. Seems like just yesterday I was running around to get everything I needed for Christmas. Time really does fly.
Hope you are having a nice and restful weekend
Another photo challenge. Joining Marcia again. The theme this time around is YELLOW! I did another YELLOW post a few months ago, hence again 🙂
Yellow in Pink Rose
Not so few supporters in their yellow jerseys just before the soccer world cup in 2010 during a parade in front of my office
Flickering “Candle” bought in support of charity at a Carols by Candlelight event
Glorious Sunset in the city
Picking up a very “yellow” lemon tart. Don’t ask me if the tart was delicious, I don’t eat anything “tarty” 😉
For some reason, the captions for some of the pictures didn’t appear and WP is testing my patience right now, I will update accordingly during the course of next week but for your pleasure
Picture 1 – Yellow in Pink Rose
Picture 2 – Not so few supporters in their yellow jerseys just before the soccer world cup in 2010 during a parade in front of my office

In simple language BLACK AND WHITE I couldn’t resist showing off the little, teeny, tiny French I know.
I am joining Marcia for this month’s photo challenge. The theme is Black &White (B&W)
Very exciting challenge, since I love B&W pictures. Recently, I learnt that the best tactic is to take pictures in colour because with picture editing softwares you can change the colours of the pictures, but if you take in B&W you can’t turn it into colour. WHO KNEW…
A beautiful sunset
Peace be still…
Beautiful even if I say so myself 😉 🙂
Just had to combine it with the coloured version of the picture for your viewing pleasure…
More pictures of my sister and I goofing around during an evening stroll 😉
The first 3 pictures I took in colour and converted to B&W. The fourth was taken directly in B&W
This is a colour picture, but the weather was so gloomy and dreary this was how the pictures came out.
Just perfect for our B&W theme 😉
Those are my pictures for today.
My sister sent me this earlier this week and I thought how appropriate. She saw it on the floor in a shopping centre
hmmmm, still thinking about this statement…
Some useful (or not) information, Ted Grant was a Trotskyist (!*&#$) born Isaac Blank in Germiston, South Africa on July 9 1913
And one last one, which I didn’t take but also couldn’t resist posting, because when I hear Black and White, I always think of TV. I am not that old though (just saying – 😉 😉 )
Those where the days…
Hope your Saturday is going as planned? Enjoy your weekend
Joining Marcia again for a Monthly Photo Challenge.
The challenge this week is 5 pictures that captures the theme RED
Marcia you know having only 5 is a big big challenge but it also helps to keep
me some of us on the straight and narrow
Here are my 5
Yummy Bell Peppers
Snail Mail 🙂
During construction on what is supposed to be the greenest office building in the country.
Taken on the way to work 😉
My favourite chewing gum at the moment.
If only strawberries were really this red and shiny!!!
January on my lovely Afrikaans calendar 🙂
Some red tulips (ROOI TULPE) just for Julia and Blackhuff. I know what rooi means (I live in an area that starts with rooi, so I had to know what it means) and I know what tulips look like 😉
All pictures taken with my BB
I am proud of myself for sticking to the rules 😉
Hope your weekend is going as planned?
