Yellow tailed wasp

Yellow tailed wasp

I have some luck with flying insects lately, I do not even have to leave the confines of my garden.
I unfortunately do not have a scientific name for this beauty, if you do please leave me a note and I’ll add it.

Xylocopa caffra

This is the Xylocopa caffra also commonly known as the Carpenter Bee and this is a bee I would rather not argue with, large does not describe it, for a bee that is (2cm +)

Macaw Parrot

Macaw parrot snapshot

One, if not my biggest, pet peeve in the photography space is: Because you are known as a photographer, snapshots will not do!
But what if I wanted to share a memory, not a portfolio image?
No you cannot and will not publish that, says the masses!

So I am defying the masses, here is my macaw parrot snapshot!

Purple Rain

The jacarandas in Johannesburg are a sight to see, the northern suburbs of the city turn purple with these majestic trees.
This, from end of October the the firs few weeks of November, is the season.
We call it purple rain season and you can see why.
Interesting fact: The Jacaranda is not native to South Africa or Africa for that matter, even if our capital city Pretoria is widely known for it. The tree is native of Central and South America.

Offices Deserted

Offices Deserted

Randomly chosen by fellow photographer Russel Harris from my Blue collection.

Before 1Fox – The Sheds was hip and filled with good food there was just the derelict abandoned buildings of 14 Alexander Street.
Today, it has been recycled and houses a food market, a micro brewery and much more.

Sunday at the train station

Sunday at the train station

Randomly chosen by fellow UK photographer Kim Brown from my Blue collection.

Sunrises and sunset alike are funny things, one day they will be the most beautiful thing on earth, the next plain as can be.
On this day it was just a vaguely interesting sunrise behind a lot of clouds.
