My Photo’s Someones Quotes: Day 150


I fall. I rise.

I make mistakes.

I live. I learn.

I’ve been hurt but I’m alive.

I’m human.

I’m not perfect but I’m Thankful.


Ruby Tuesday: 22/23 Weeks

Ruby_6687 Ruby_6691 Ruby_6692 Ruby_6713 Ruby_6714Today it’s to cold outside and I don’t want to be in the wind to long. Just got over the flu and are looking forward to my holiday in two weeks time.  Today I took photo’s of Ruby on her “playpen”  (our bed). As you can see the covers I put over keeps getting darker…

The coat hanger she’s busy chewing she got the first day that she came to us. It was lying in the sun-room and I wanted to throw it away but when she started playing with it I let it be. She is still playing with it but now it is in two pieces inside the cover. The Crocks I gave her also the day when she came to us this was to prevent her from chewing our shoe’s. It is working very good so far only one incident when she took my husbands shoe to her bed but she did not chew on it, she chewed her Crock…

Ruby is still barking at everything and the latest is chasing the poor birds when they come to feed….


My Photo’s Someones Quotes: Day 149

The best revenge is to move on and get over it. Don’t give someone the satisfaction of watching you suffer.


Trying out a new combination….













Usually I have my 50mm Lens on my Canon 500D but Sunday I decided to try my 50mm on my Canon 7D. WOW I thought I got great shot’s before with my Canon 500D but I must honestly say from now on I’ll switch lenses more often…

In the past I took my photo’s in Aperture Priority mode but the past two months I switch between Aperture Priority and Manual mode.  I am getting much better in Manual mode and as soon as I am confident enough I’ll shoot mainly in Manual.

Ronald was playing fetch with Ruby. I saw the opportunity to try some action photo’s in manual mode and I am happy to say I am very happy with my results. 🙂

This week you will get a double dose of Ruby… Keep a lookout for Ruby Tuesday tomorrow. 🙂

One special moment….

Holmes_5685I am busy editing  Catherine and Justin’s wedding and when I came across this photo I got something in my eye……

Catherine’s dad wanted to take a photo with his phone and asked her nicely if she would mind posing for him. The whole episode played off in front of my eyes and I could not resist also capturing this special moment between father and Daughter.

I love this photo and just had to share it with you so long….

I first saw the Southern Masked Weaver building his nest on Saturday 10 August 2013. I took the above photo’s the next morning, Sunday  11 August 2013.  He was making good progress until the Gale Force Wind blew his nest away….

When I went outside on Monday morning his nest was gone. I have not spotted him in our garden again…. I was so looking forward to many more photo’s….

My Photo’s Someones Quote: Day 143

Live more, complain less.

Ruby Tuesday: 21/22 Weeks

Ruby decided that her Ball on the Rope had to be demolished.  This morning  she was very destructive breaking everything she could get her paws on….

I had a wedding on Saturday and due to wet socks and shoes I’ve got the flue. For once Ruby did not jump on me instead she’s licks me. I have an infection in my right eye and when I am lying down I must just close my eye because she constantly wants to lick it. I went to lie down this afternoon something totally new for Ruby she just could not understand in the end she cuddled up and lay next to me.

Because I am not feeling well and I have so much editing to do before Saturday’s Matric Farewell,I did not take allot of photo’s
