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.

Slaap

a welcome side-effect of this time of year is just wanting to sleep, all the time. i am an early riser by nature but lately i’ve been flirting with the snooze button and am quickly becoming an expert at the snappy (and not so snappy) afternoon nap. there isn’t even the “it’s winter and we need to hibernate” excuse to fall back on … since it’s summer in this part of the world – i shouldn’t have to explain that but sometimes the hemispheres seem to surprise people.

this will be my last post of the year… a fitting one, i feel. i hope that you have a great new years weekend and that you end up having a good time whichever way you choose to celebrate it.

Photo Bomb No.2

the first photo bomb post (where i shared some flickr favourites) turned out to be pretty popular, so i have decided to make this into a series. the fact is that i discover far too many cool snaps on flickr to allow a post dedicated to each and every photographer, so this is a great way for me to share wonderful work with you.

i’m going to try to make these a bit more theme-y so that there is at least a common thread of some kind… this edition is dedicated to magical girls.
