2020-05-31: Lions at rest

Sunday as a day of rest seems a distant memory right now; and while I wish I could be chilling out like these lions, I have coursework to do instead.

Spending a little time on my photography gives me the opportunity to flex my creative muscles and gets me energized again to get back to work. I think though that once finals are done in August, I’ll be looking quite like these lions on the weekends until classes go back again in September.

Wishing you all the best for a positive week ahead.

2020-05-24: Artistic Impressions

I’ve had some fun over the last few weeks playing around with some images in Topaz Studio and creating a bit of photo art.  I had been hoping to get out with my camera and capture some of the new birds I have been seeing around, but the weather has definitely not been conducive to that this week.  It seems to be a theme lately that I want to do more with my photography than time allows, but these sort of cycles ebb and flow, and there is no sense in getting all worked up about it.  I’m just happy that I have something to share this week.

Wishing everyone a positive week ahead!

2020-05-18: Monochrome Monday

I had grand plans for photography and posts this past week, but my schoolwork got me bogged down, so much so that I even missed my usual Sunday post.  Now it’s nearing the end of the long weekend and the weather has cooperated to get out for a round of golf, so a quick image and then I am off.  After a long winter and lots of time during the week spent at the computer, I have to have my priorities!  Have a great week everyone!

Here are a few images of Mom’s in the bush, all taken during my last trip to South Africa.  Looking through my photos brings back such lovely memories, made even better by the fact that I experienced them with my Mom 🙂

These two couldn’t have posed any nicer if I has asked them. A pair of young male waterbuck seen while on a game drive in South Africa.  Oh, how I miss that beautiful place!
