My Photo and quote by Jim Rohn

“The more you know the less you need to say.” Jim Rohn

Sometimes I wonder about this one. In some cases like for instance in my work I like to share my knowledge with others. I like to share what I know and taught myself over te past decade.

Then you get those circumstances where you know something about someone and you are waiting for them to come clean and be honest with you… You don’t let them know that you know what is going on…

A few years back I took my first photo of this tree on a hill on a day I that turned my whole world upside down and inside out. This tree is a constant reminder of that perticular day and that I knew something and was waiting for it to be confirmed….

What is your interpretation of this qoute?

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.

If you can dream it you can do it.

“The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.” Samuel Johnson

Keep safe and keep traveling….

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

My bucket list as long as the N1…

In 95 days and 11 Hours dad and I will be on our way to Scotland. We are nearly all set only our visas that need to be done next week. Then the long wait will be upon us.

This will be my first time going abroad and I am super excited to scratch two things of my bucket list this year. Fly international and take a tour through Scotland.

I am 45 years old and have drawn up a bucket list of countries, towns and places I would like to visit… This will keep me very busy for quite a few years to come. Some people will look at me funny when they see it.

On my list there are alot of places here in South Africa. I used to travel alot in the past, but in life situations change and one has to make decisions on what is more important.

When dad got diagnosed with Maestina Gravis last year I had an eye opener and started working on my bucketlist. I told myself that I want to tick 3 of items every year…. My third item on my list will be to visit one of our local attractions.

Choices…

Your worth…

Your worth consists in what you are and not in what you have… Thomas Edison

A few years back a colleague told me that I am worth much more and that I must start believing in myself and my abilities as a photographer.

For me this is very difficult. I am my own worst critic and sometimes I feel like my photo’s are not good enough it can still improve.

Even after 10 years in the industry I am still learning new skills. Trying to better myself for my client’s and potential clients…

I do have a goal and that is to sell my nature photos online…. But the big question is what do I think I am worth?

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Feel free to comment or like my post.

To be Calm….

To be calm is the highest achievement of the self. Zen Proverb

Since a young age I had trouble to be calm… As I grow older I understand that I need to calm myself. It is essential to keep my blood pressure down. But that is easier said than done.

Just as one think everything is falling in to place something happens and upset the whole apple cart….

I tried to meditate…. That was one big joke. I could not even shut down for a few minutes then my mind starts wondering…

I struggle to fall asleep at night and then to top it of I wake up around 3 o’clock in the middle of the night and then I struggle to fall asleep again. The doctor subscribed some medication to help me switch off but I don’t like the feeling of not being in control…

Now I have this tremendous challenge in front of me. I need to calm myself…

116 days, 7 hours and 57 minutes before departure…

I am super excited about our visit to Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 in August 2019.

Not much to tick of our to do list anymore… We must still apply for our visas, pack our suitcases, finish up my trip planning for the last 3 days and then we are ready to go…

I don’t think I will have the opportunity to visit Scotland again so our trip planning is very important. I have lists of places we would like to see on route to our next destination. Luckily we are doing a selfdrive tour so we are in charge of what route we would like to take. Our travelagent Sarah did however gave us enough information and a route that covers most of what we would like to see.

The only problem is I have the tendency to change a 4 hour trip into a 10 hour trip… But at least my dad also like to take photos and stop alot so we are very good travel partners.

I cannot wait to share our Scotland trip with you….
