Linden Market on a gorgeous autumn day

I met my mom and sister at the Linden Market this morning. The market is a few times every year in the Emmarentia Botanical Gardens in Johannesburg. It’s one of my favourite markets to go to, and it was a lot bigger this time which was really great. There were loads more stalls with food and actually just a lot more of everything. We got there just after it opened, and I’m so glad we planned our day like that. When I left at lunchtime the queue to get in was miles long! I loved this stand run by...

Running in my dreams

I feel so unfit. I feel like a sloth. I feel like I’ve been only running in my dreams. I’m determined to get off my bum and start training properly again. From tomorrow. Meh. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve said that in the last few weeks, but I haven’t got anywhere. Work has been insane, and I’m struggling to get to RWFL for the sessions. My foot is also still giving me hell whenever I run. And on top of all that I’ve got one excuse after another. But this has to change. I’ve got a...

Running the first Hot Legs Run

Today was the very first Hot Legs Run.  The Hot Legs Run was hosted by Born2Run running club from St Stithians school, and was sponsored by Hot919 FM. It’s a 32km, 15km and a 5km run that starts at Higher Ground restaurant at the school and winds all over the north of Joburg. The 32km and 15km races started at 6am, and you can tell that winter is getting closer. It was still night-time when we got there just before 5am to make sure we got parking. I took this photo at 5:37am as we were walking to the start....

The need to create again

You may think that the title is strange, considering I have a photography business. However, I really feel that I need to create again. Instead of going to gym yesterday, I took my camera out to play with free lensing again. OK, it was only for 5 minutes but still, it’s something. I’ve just been feeling like I’m not getting anywhere. I have been procrastinating a lot (hence the blog post), but I feel like I’m stagnating. Until a few months ago, I was also brushing up on new techniques and having fun with my camera. I’m not sure...
