following on from my Zebu post for Nick and Shannon‘s scavenger hunt I got some positive feedback and request for other star sign doodles, the very first of which was for Aries from Shannon herself and then Capricorn from the Magical Miss Abra Alani and finally Virgo for the ever charming Zelmare.

I must confess that I had always assumed Capricorn and Aries were the same thing but Wikipedia has taught me otherwise in my extensive 20 second search this morning.

Virgo is going to be interesting too, as living in Saaaarf Laaandon I’ve not come across too many virgins.

I hope you like this one Shannon and thank you for encouraging me to doodle some more

Wow, I make a suggestion and somebody actually listens to me, I love the re-edit of his photo and am honoured that it actually seems to have worked, please check out his site.

Wow, that is a clunky post title!  I wrote this post that had a landscape picture taken in black and white with my new point and shoot camera.  I got some feedback on that post that got me to thinking and led to this post. I had taken the original shot in part because I had just read that one of the competitions in my photo club this year was going to be landscapes in black and white.  That’s cool, because I shoot almost everything in color, and it will give me something different to think about.

So, I took the landscape in B&W, and thought maybe I would edit it later.  I use GIMP to do my photo editing. I included the link because it is open source software that means you can use it at no cost.  I also use YouTube to find tutorials to help me use…

I feel like a change so have updated my theme, please let me know whether you think I should keep the change or go back to using 2011.

Hope you have a great weekend

howdy friends family and interweb friends, I have been blogging for going on a year now and shared my rants, pictures, woes and joys with you the greater world and wanted to garner some opinion on what you all feel about the big bad world wide web, do you think it’s relatively safe to share all sorts of details about your life across your blog, Facebook, Twitter, G+ etc, do you take any precautions like using a nom de plume and never posting pictures of your kids or do you prefer to hide in the background and just observe everyone else’s drunken ramblings?

I personally fall somewhere between all of those taking some solace in the enormity of the web making me relatively anonymous or at least unattractive to creeps and weirdo’s who might want to track me down and seek retribution or do naughty things with my nether region or god forbid the nether regions of my family.

Again this may be wishful thinking but I personally feel there is more risk from strangers lurking in dark alleyways just waiting to pounce when I least expect it, this is probably not an ideal fear as these same dark alleyways are where I do so much of my photography although admittedly I am invariably attached via a leash to a very vicious looking dog and am scruffy and scowl a lot at just about everyone not just strangers.

Anyway this is becoming a bit of a ramble so please vote below or share your thoughts in the comments section.

I’m cheating again this photo of an elephants footprint was taken by my father but he asked me to share it will you guys for Nick and Shannon’s scavenger hunt. 

Sadly he’s neglected to give me any further info on where and when the picture was taken but we can fairly safely assume it was in Zimbabwe, probably Mana Pools and most likely taken with a Konica Minolta bridge camera.

8 down 10 to go.

  • “Big Foot Footprint”
  • Reflected Love
  • Abstract Self Portrait
  • Framed Moon
  • “Whats your sign”
  • Anti-gravity
  • Unusual Perspective
  • Abandoned
  • Silence
  • Pride and Joy
  • Emerging Star
  • Buried Treasure
  • Sparkler fun
  • Clownin Around Upside-down
  • Lyric Quotograph
  • Summer
  • Patriotism
  • Night

I will eventually get back to my Project 52 but am having so much fun with Nick and Shannon’s Scavenger hunt it’s taking precedence at the moment.

As many of you will know I’m a Zimbabwean and proud of my homeland but the simple economics mean that I have now lived in the UK for many years only getting a chance to return to the land of my birth every couple of years.

That being said I do what I can to keep up the connection, I wear my Courtney Boots daily and carry this National Geographic camera bag proudly displaying the Zimbabwean flag pretty much everywhere.

Please excuse the rather poor Instagram shot on this occasion, it’s not all about the quality of the photography but the journey or at least that’s my excuse.

While we’re on the subject of Zimbabwe I could not have been a happier boy than when our tiny little nation stuffed the South African’s in the cricket yesterday, sorry Mrs BC but I can’t help but gloat.
