“Death From Above” – Tshukudu Game Reserve, South Africa – Graham King – Featured Photographer

Okay, maybe I am a bit dramatic with the title, but I think it is fitting when you have a 100 pound leopard over your head.    You can only imagine what this leopard sees and that is the fun of it.  Gazelle?  Zebra? One of Graham’s friends? No matter who is on the lunch menu, the beauty and agility of this big cat is well represented in Graham’s photograph. So please read the story below then check out the rest of Graham’s stunning portfolio at:

Take it away Graham:

The shot was taken back in 2007.  I went on a two week photographic safari to The Kruger and then onto Tshukudu Game Reserve on the edge of  it.  In the reserve you are able to get a bit closer to the animals…

Have we been turned into emotion zappers?

One last journey to and from the clinic and I spent the rest of the day recovering from a week of emotional ups and downs. Monday – I spent doing stuff people do, when they return from a holiday. Tuesday – I was a bundle of nerves waiting for Mr. M to come out of the operation room. Wednesday – I switched from worrying for Mr. M’s wellbeing, shopping for a suitable shirt to match with the pants I planned to wear for the interview and mentally preparing myself for it. Thursday – I was full of adrenalin before, during and after my very first job interview. Now we’re back to Friday, when I felt like doing nothing.

For example I find it frustrating to watch the news on TV after something tragic has happened. One moment the newscaster is talking about thousands of people losing their lives because of a Tsunami and with the next breath the Sports segment is introduced with a smile. Continue reading

Whitney Houston – Another bad boy victim?

My condolences to the family of Whitney Houston.

I vividly remember sitting in front of the TV, watching The Bodyguard. Her supposedly terrible acting skills did not bother the teenager me. In fact I thought the movie was great and learned of the singer Whitney Houston for the first time. How often have I tried singing the karaoke version of the song I will always love you! But her powerful voice and musical talent cannot be simply copied. Continue reading

Green Fingers

Plants have a way of dying in my care. I either drown them in too much water or dry them out. I try to follow the care instructions, which usually come with the plants but still no real success. My mom talks to her plants. Once my brother tripped and fell into a potted plant. Instead of looking if he was fine, she first went to her plant. Maybe I should start singing to my plants too. 🙂
