Lingering look at Architecture: University of the Witwatersrand

I agree with Dawn that Universities have some of the most beautiful architecture around! When I lived in Boston, I would gladly take in all the architecture at Harvard University. Now I have the pleasure of working among such architectural beauty.
This is my office:

I’ve been here for a little while and still get enamoured by its beautiful architecture. The pillars are iconic for this University and my favourite part

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Candid Shots

Cee has another fun challenge – candid shots!
I’ve always found my best candid shots come from taking photos of my daughter, who does some cute, but also odd things at times.

Here is one of her playing on the beach. I anticipated her jumping off the rock so caught it just in time:

This guy was selling sunglasses on the beach and I was so impressed with the cool way he carried them in an old surfboard, I just had to capture it:

Contrary to what you may believe, this guy was not posing for the camera. I caught a snap while hearing him explain to his buddy how he’s full-time pineapple, part-time beach bum:

Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge 2

For Michelles Second Weekly Pet Challenge I have decided to introduce you to my morning academic coffee buddy. Academic, because I work at a University and my buddy has quite an expressive vocabulary.

I work on the top floor of my building, and almost every day I have an Egyptian goose fly up to my window. I have taken it upon myself to name him Jake. He looks like a Jake.
Jake is blady cheeky. He knocks on my window loudly with his beak demanding to be let in. And when I don’t, he shouts at me! I don’t know any goose swearwords but I know he swears! Typical South African. But I look forward to this cheeky banter every morning 🙂
