I’ve been working the last 3 days on a new website for Zazen Studio. I’ve been staying in the Studio while working on the site and it’s been a great experience.
Go see the website for photos of the Studio. It offers beautiful and tranquil accommodation in the Gauteng area. Close to Sandton, Randburg and Fourways, you easily forget that you’re staying in the middle of a large city.
The cool thing about a camera that can zoom 15x optically (Sony H50), is that you can take photos of critters that otherwise would be flying away at your approach …
I know I shouldn’t take photos directly into the sun … but you know what? I don’t care. 🙂
A mossy pathway through the Lowveld Botanical Gardens, Nelspruit, South Africa. Photo taken Sunday March 15th 2009.
The Crocodile river having a grand time at the falls in the Lowveld Botanical Gardens. Photo taken March 15th. It’s a good time to visit, the rivers are flowing, the bush is green (except at our place, where it hasn’t rained much at all) and the weather is lovely.
A pair of very sharp flowers 😉
Sweet little plant growing on a rock in the bush … I have to admit, my mom planted it there, but it looks very happy.
I’ve got a new website job, which is cool. Just waiting on my client for specs and ideas and graphics, and then I’ll give it a go. Otherwise my life revolves around the scrapbook shop and the laser cutter. Keeps me busy, sort of.
Looking at some other blogs I realize why this one gets no traffic … it’s because I express no opinions that could get people all swept up. But hey, who wants that kind of traffic in any case?
A close-up photo of some Perspex / plexiglass squares – offcuts from a laser cutting job. I was playing with the black&white settings on my camera.
These amazing fungi are pretty common, but extremely hard to notice, as they are so tiny. I’d gone through that valley 5 or 6 times before I even saw one of these. And then it took a few tries to get a photo that looks okay.
