What is a superpower you’d love to have?

Well, I have a superpower, I have MOM Power, and the day your first child is born your MOM Power is activated. Moms can do anything they put their minds to. They can even make the pain go away with a band-aid and a kiss. Moms can read minds and know what mischief her children are up to when they are just thinking about it. Even when your kids are all grown you still have your superpower you can detect heartache a mile away….

But if I can choose a second Superpower…..

I love to travel so teleporting would be the ideal superpower for me, or maybe not then it takes the fun out of having a road trip. But with a superpower like that, I can teleport to the desired country I want to capture, and if anybody needs me, I can be back within minutes….

Thank you with all my heart for stopping by and having a look at my post.

What is a cause you’re passionate about and why?

Oh, my word I am passionate about a few causes. I try to contribute to each and everyone in my own way.

Nature Conservation: When I take photos in the field, I try my best to capture as many of the Fauna and Flora in that area. I try my best to stay on the footpaths, but sometimes one has to move off to get that flower in the field. When I do that, I try to step on rocks and bold spots on the ground. I take my trash with me if I eat something. I try to use glass to minimize my plastic use. I also re-use plastic containers a few times before disposing of them.

Wildlife conservation: I can’t stop poachers but my bank is donating money to different charities. I chose Wildlife Conservation as mine. We have to protect our wildlife for future generations.

Saving Water: We use our shower water to flush the toilets. I use the water that we use to rinse our glasses and cups to water the grass. We have water tanks to catch the rainwater and use it to water the garden. In the past I used to collect the washing machines water to water the garden, then my washing machine broke. We use dad’s one now and it is very far to carry all the water to wet the garden. But if I have to, I will do it. I did it in the past I can do it again. We have to save water wherever we can. Without it, we will not survive….

Good Day: 18 January 2022

Good day friends,

Hope everyone had a good night’s rest. If you are only going to bed now or a bit later, wishing you a peaceful night’s rest.

It was a beautiful cool morning with a slight breeze. When I got outside this morning the grass was wet and there was a mist like rain.

Cool morning in the garden.
My spot in the garden. This morning my chair is wet…

During the night I woke up coughing again and this morning my chest is feeling tights. I used my inhaler and a few minutes later it felt better. I am not sure if I am going to visit dad this morning. All depends on what time they are collecting the trash. Tonight, I must put in some extra editing time. I am falling more and more behind. I still have 9 days’ worth of Grand Tour of Scotland photos to edit. Then there are still photos of 2020, 2021 and yesterday’s photos the first for 2022.

According to the weather forecast, we are having a warm and wet day. With a maximum temperature of 25°C and winds up to 34 km/h. I hope it rains enough to fill up my empty water containers.

Your Photo Airs on 18th January

Yesterday I received an email from People’s Weather. One of my photos are being aired today on channel 180 People’s Weather Channel or on Channel 115 on OpenView Channel. It will be airing multiple times during the day. I am so Blessed…

Photo of Table Mountain on the Television. Aired on MyPhoto
Photo submitted: Table Mountain at sunset from Bloubergstrand

I am super proud of myself. I stepped out of my comfort zone and send in my photos to share it on another platform all together. If I am honest with myself every time, I post a photo on my blog or social media I am hesitant, I keep asking myself is it good enough. But I came to a conclusion it is good enough for me if someone can learn from my mistakes. That is the reason why I started putting down all the photo information.

When I look at my photos before and after I did my Photography Diploma, I impress even myself. My photos have improved a lot and you will notice immediately what is my latest work.

Thank you with all my heart for your continued support. Thank you for being patient with me. I have thousands of photos, that I still want to share with you.
