I can't pinpoint exactly how I initially scan and ultimately select images I'm partial to for the blog, but, for some reason or another, I'm not especiallly accomplished at this particular task, as I tend to neglect images like this.
We're over the hill. 2010 is officially half gone, can you believe it? Then again, the one agreeable aspect is from here on in, our days now begin to lengthen and the mercury levels should also start to rise - at least towards the latter part of July.
Other news from this end;
On the workshop front, there have been many requests to host yet another forum. I am super excited to annouce that I will be hosting RE.INVENT II with Dror. We have packed in some extra bits on marketing and branding, a model shoot and practical shooting tips on how to shoot decor.
If you are interested in joining us, then carry on reading here. Last time seats sold out pretty fast, so I would suggest if you are interested book now - as we will once again keep the numbers low so that we have a small group.
In other splendid news, Admired in Africa has re-launched with a spanking-new look and I'm thrilled to bits to be one of the photogaphers featured. I also love the fact one of my images was used in the header. (Blowing that
trumpet vuvuzela again).
That's it from my side.
I took the midgets to their favourite amusement park this weekend.
I think it is almost impossible for an adult to fully grasp just how exciting a funfair is to small children - the colour, the characters, the clatter of rides, the glitter of the circus. . .and let's not forget the candy floss; pure sugar goodness melting in your mouth, which can only be eaten messily with your hands.
I love capturing every-day moments. Like my boys doing every-day things; going to the park, drawing pictures, collecting pine cones for the fire, playing in the back garden. The real bits. Unedited.
Our simple, every-day life.
In the future, I'm sure I will treasure these pictures, no matter how dirty or mismatched their choice of clothing may be. Pictures to remind me how time is flying by and how quickly these simple, but precious moments will pass.
I have been working ferociously this past week in an attempt to catch up with my editing, which is no easy task, being beset with the distractions of hyperactive midgets and the World Cup.
On the photography side, however, it's been a good week, as we were nominated for two VOW awards, along with news two of our portrait images and a wedding portfolio also succeeded to the finals of the African Photographic Awards. Oh, and to put the cherry on the cake, two of our clients' weddings were featured in the latest Wedding Inspirations Magazine.
So, from a low-key perspective, it's been quite a fairly decent week.
OK, my apologies, as I do realise self-satisfaction can be awfully annoying. In fact, my intention was to be all modest and humble and not to blow my own trumpet, but, sod it; I'm chuffed to the nines with the news!
