Travel Theme : Camaradarie

Animals are perfect examples of how

differences can fade

and camaraderie triumph.

..

So pleased to meet you.

“Animals are such agreeable friends―

they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.” ― George Eliot

Sharing dinner

“Animals have come to mean so much in our lives.

We live in a fragmented and disconnected culture.

Politics are ugly, religion is struggling, technology is stressful, and the economy is unfortunate.

What’s one thing that we have in our lives that we can depend on?

A dog or a cat loving us unconditionally, every day, very faithfully.” – Jon Katz

Grazing together

“Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal.

Difficult standards for people to live up to.” ― Alfred A. Montapert

..

Just loving the peaceful life

“We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals…

In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.

They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.” – Henry Boston

Travel Theme: Frame

I enjoyed finding photos for this theme .

Hanging a frame at a party is so much fun – guests have a great photo opportunity as well as a keepsake to remember the evening.

At Lake Eland in KwaZulu-Natal, there is a unique Church which is often used for weddings. It is rich with atmosphere and enhanced by a framed cross.

Church

Sometimes the frame is more important than the content – this building was abandoned many years ago and, as it ages, it provides some interesting photographic opportunities.

Travel Theme: Paint

These photographs were taken in Newtown which is situated in Johannesburg’s inner city.

As the land was rich in clay, the area was used for brick making in the past but it has now evolved into a place of creativity, art and culture thanks to the implementation of urban renewal.

As a result theatres, galleries, cafes, craft markets and clubs have made Newtown their home.

“I believe that in the history of art and of thought

there has always been

at every living moment of culture

a will to renewal.”

Travel Theme: Grasses

These photos were taken in KwaZulu-Natal after some desperately needed rain. Some green grass appeared amongst the dryness which created a lovely texture.
