This week’s theme is Threshold and here’s my interpretation. uShaka Marine World is located in Durban South Beach, KZN, South Africa.  Its a beach and marine theme park.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

This week’s photo challenge is themed Inside. “Finding images of a thing inside something else can be a very powerful compositional tool……. “The difference between a snapshot and an image that makes a memory can be something as small as clever composition.

Howling Days Are Here

That smokey looking spot on the shoreline is wind stirring up the ocean into a mist, when it hits the shore. We’re looking at part of the Indian ocean here, by the way. A close-up of that mist. The overall view and what otherwise seems like a peaceful evening. In reality though, over the next…
