Wow!! What else can I say?! Last year went so fast
in so many ways yet when I think about it so much
much happened!! There was also so much I was meant to
do that I never got around to...then again I got so much
achieved that I never expected to! So I guess that the saying
"What you gain on the swings you lose on the roundabouts"
rings true when it comes to time :)
Anyway...I wish you all the best for 2012!
I have a million and one plans, hopes and dreams for this year ...
Why my list is so long I just don't know, must have been all the
thinking I got done in that unpolluted mountain air recently!
I will share my 2012 projects/list soon!!
Overall I was disappointed with the photos I took on this trip.
I didn't make a big effort. My kids are at the stage where they don't
enjoy "having a camera in their faces" as they regularly tell me now :(
but I do have ENOUGH - enough beautiful photos which will
make wonderful memories, so all's well that ends well :)
Introducing Cameron, Chelsea's boyfriend. He stayed with us half of the time.
Yup, of all the names...and yup she calls him Cam...and yup she has a sister
called Cam too - boy is it confusing, especially when they are together - I've
told him he has to be Cameron to me or we'll be in a continual muddle!
They initiated this shoot so were willing to pose. The time
of day was totally wrong though as it was midday on a very
bright and sunny day. That's why I kept putting them under
any tree I could find - for some shade!
I just love the texture of that tree bark...There were some marvellous
locations for photoshoots in the Drakensberg. I used my Tamron 28 - 75mm
2.8F lens as this was before I received my Christmas lens (50mm 1.4F).
I'm very happy that she is happy. He is a nice guy
- and that does NOT just go without saying in these parts. Many
youths are rude, arrogant & disrespectful, but he is not.
He really cares for her. She's lucky to have him - and vice versa...
We had a lot of fun with Cameron. He was prepared
to fit right in with us as a family and I felt a bit sorry for him
at times...It must have been a bit overwhelming for him, as he's
the youngest in a big family where all but him & his sister are still
"at home" (when not at university) whereas Chelsea comes with quite
a package, 2 very rowdy teenage brothers and a very demanding
younger sister who was jealous of all the times he "took her sister away!"
