Great Moments

great moments – on the open road, in a pool, enjoying the view, early mornings, new places, with your family, with your best friend, with your best people, learning something new, doing something exciting, seeing something beautiful, hanging with your cat, hanging with yourself.

Animal Love

i’m going to revive the photo bomb series because my flickr favourites are so vast, but i’ve decided to share new, old and favourite photographers theme by theme because otherwise all you get is a disconnected bunch of photos and this isn’t tumblr, folks. if you want to explore past flickr favourites in the archives, you can check out the photo bombflickr tags… or just browse the photography category.

so for this week’s photo bomb the theme is animals & pets. i’m pretty starved for animal love right now, since moving earlier this year i don’t get to see my family’s pooches all too often, and i live in an apartment that doesn’t allow pets. at the moment it’s fine because i’m not home all too often anyway and that is super unfair on a cat or a dog (especially if you don’t have a garden), but it also means that i fawn over basically every single animal i get to see in real life. if you’re walking down the street with your dog (or cat? maybe you’re into that) then i WILL stop and say hi. to your animal, i will probably ignore you completely.

Stuff Lately

edit & update: i have changed my image hosting to Amazon S3, which is working out great so far. i decided to put my whining about Flickr to rest, after hearing many compelling arguments for the privacy / pinterest issue from Flickr users and bloggers alike.

here are some of my most recent pics from instagram. since opening up the app to android users millions of more people have joined in on the fun – so if you’re on instagram now follow me with my username miss_moss or check out all my instagram pics here. here are some things i’ve been doing lately…

been settling into my new place, which means procuring new pieces of furniture (a slow and budget wary process) including my new couch – which is now boasting some warm textures, ready for winter. also hanging up a few pictures, sunning myself on the balcony with pink drinks and trying not to kill my beautiful succulents (seen above)

i’m lucky enough to live just down the road from the south african national gallery, which means i can pop in there whenever i wish and check out the exhibitions. there are some interesting ones at the mo, listening to distant thunder by peter clarke is a notable one… but i have to admit i was more taken with the wild geese and their babies hanging out on the lawn outside.

Goslings!

i visited the Woodstock Foundry, which is an amazing space on Albert Road in Woodstock that houses such gems as the The Lobby hair shop – also known as the place where i got the best hair cut of my life (need a cut? Craig will sort you out – that goes for boys & girls). also dropped in on my pal Andrew’s place Selah, who is working on some amazing pieces at the mo – note the hanging plant from Opus in the foreground (also located in The Foundry).

we went to sutherland in the karoo for easter weekend, it rained which is always amazing to see in the desert.

Anna & Marek

some more beautiful photographs from Anna & Marek Strachan, who i previously posted about here.

Using digital and analog cameras (35 mm and 120 mm film) we try to take advantage mainly of daylight and to avoid extensive image postprocessing.
