Yuyen Garden

I had to go twice! That is how startled I was when I first saw the Yuyen Garden. There were fish and statues and arched passageways, ancient tiles and dramatic trees. One viewing was never going to be enough. It was some two hundred yen to go in. After walking through tables after tables of strange…

The Horizon South Africa

The  best part about travel is finding a world left bare and open for you. And you are given the chance to touch it, let your eyes run across it, envy it and capture it however you like. If there is ever a greater freedom for us, it is in moving feet. Not the comfort of…

Oh The Roses!

Imagine the world from the view of a rose. Must be fascinating! They colour our world and share our love with one another. Human beings are very adept in using them and this gives roses the best views of our world. I tried my hand at taking pictures of sites, from a rose’s perspective. And…

My Poetry

Every single time I write poetry I get scared. It is one of life’s hardest things to do and I know I am exposing my self to ridicule. But it is like the colour of my veins are turning black with ink, willing me to expose myself. So every single time I write poetry I…

Gregory’s Journey

There is a house on the moor where a lady ran and shut herself in. The sea beats against the shore relentlessly and all she hears are the words that brought her here. Her lover saying that he was not too brave to come to her. He was searching for his lover but then he found the…

Why I Look Through Windows

You never know what you are going to get, that is why. Photography has taught me to be highly expectant, because there are many things that can catch your eye. Some pass by in seconds and others last longer letting you take your time to capture it. This has made me an oddball with my eyes always out…

A Symphony Of Leaves

The perfect weather is a shade of leaves and trees, looking up at a perfect changing masterpiece. It is art more diverse than can ever be achieved by the artists. The camera tries but every second captures a different frame. It is better to sit, watch, breather and let the breeze paint a whole other…

Birds. Some Funny Birds!

I can take a million pictures of a single moment and not be satisfied. Photography to me is a wonderful gift that we have appreciated in many different ways and I am yet to discover my own. I love the search though. This particular moment is of some funny birds. Honestly, I don’t know what…

Travelling through South Africa

The world is beautiful, all of it, everywhere. I believe it. Even of the worst places in the world, there is great beauty. But there are places that exercise their beauty, they shine and no matter where you are you can’t get over how beautiful it is. South Africa has such a beauty. In Cape…

The Seagull and my shaking Camera

It was a windy day and try as I might the camera kept moving. The bird took it sweet time cleaning though, oblivious to all the people trying to take pictures of it. And when it settled down long enough for me to take the last shot, I must say, I loved it already. So…

Writtrace Aquarium 2

What I showed you the first time was shocking enough but these are all the things that made my jaw fall to the floor. I consider myself an animal lover and I have actually spent time watching animal documentaries on many things. Even my family considers me a sort of animal expert and when we…

Writtrace Aquarium

Walking through an Aquarium will prove to you one very valuable thing. There are strange things in this world! I didn’t believe it at first and just kept gasping at every tank. They are truly a marvel. All the wonders of the world that have excited before the destruction of man are even more than…
