Delibrate candour

I seem to be on a blogging spree these past couple of weeks. I really don’t know why, but mainly I think it’s because I’m in a good place. A happy place. It has been brought to my attention quite often that people like to...

Life and the lens

It’s the same thing every year. Around this time I take a look at the blog and go – “Why have I not written any posts lately!?” – And the answer is just about the same as always. I. Have. Been. Insanely. Busy. With. Life....
