Goodbye Tikko Pup

Video

From the moment we are born, there are those souls that touch our lives. Some interactions are transient while others leave us with lasting impressions of lives shared. It is souls like this that touch our lives in meaningful ways.

Tikko Pup, was one such soul; intelligent, quirky, fun and mischievous. You brought much joy and comfort through some through some tough times and you will be dearly missed.

I salute you Tikko, you will always be a pup to me.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinite

The theme of the Photo Challenge this week is Infinite, here are my interpretations & submissions. Take a look and let me know what you think (^_^).

Eagle-Eye: Always looking toward the infinite horizon. Another photo taken at the Falcon Ridge Birds of Prey show while on holiday in Central Drakensberg. My favourite part of this image is the horizon and Drakensberg mountain reflected in the eye of the eagle

Eagle Eye

The Tree of Life: Death is not the end just a stage in the infinite circle of life. Found this thriving creeper growing all around the trunk of a massive but bare tree, while taking a walk on the grounds of The Nest, in the Drakensberg. The tree must have been amazing in its prime.

Durban Skyline:  A city of infinite dreams. Photo taken from one of the upper decks on board the MSC Sinfonia early last year.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

For this Week’s Challenge I had to delve into some deep and dark disk space. Alas, my questing is at an end! I have finally found the perfect picture that captured a surprising moment for me.

This photograph is of my cousin, at his fathers’ 55th Birthday party. I have titled it “Zombie Tiki Boy”, and this is its origin.

It was my intention to sneak up on him (my cousin, not his father) for a candid, while he was preparing lovely tropical “refreshments” for the many party guests…Suddenly, he whirled around and struck this pose. I was so surprised, my camera almost landed in a vat of juice.

This image was captured, as my heart stopped. I only wish someone had been around to capture my expression, I’m told that it was “priceless”.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

Photo of a little dam near Clarens, South Africa. Taken on a very misty and rainy day. I was lucky enough, to be in the right place at the right time; to witness nature taking a breath before unleashing a mighty storm.

Miss S Naidoo’s 21st Birthday Party

Not long ago,  I had the privilege of capturing the Memorable 21st Birthday of a truly amazing young lady as she was given the key to freedom and responsibility by her loving parents.

It was a rather over cast day in Durban…Thankfully,  fortune smiled on us and the rain was kept at bay.  Mother nature must have known we were celebrating the birth of someone quite exquisite.

I got some really fantastic shots while we had a great time twirling, posing and giggling  with all her friends and family; before the guests arrived and the formalities began.

It was quite an experience to be part of an event filled with so much love and laughter.  This was a day to remember and I am grateful to have been a part of it.

Miss S Naidoo, may you have many, many more !(^_^)
