I have just popped back to Europe to give my skin a rest from the African sun and catch up on the washing. I always know it’s time to come back when people start to encourage me to maintain my reclusive lifestyle. Yes – after a month it really is time for clean clothes – even when you live next to a ‘textile optional’ beach.
So while I get on with the domestic chores RISKKO has been catching up with his friends and not surprisingly having lots of fun in the snow. For those of our friends who do not get to see much snow you may enjoy the pics in this years seasonal video. Yes whenever RISKKO has fun you can bet there is a photographer nearby. I hope you like our little Christmas tune and the accompanying shots taken from Bad Feilnbach in the Bavarian Alps. Here is the video:
Speaking of photographers the Guardian Newspaper selected a couple of my photos among the favourites in a couple of their Picture Challenge competitions recently. In case you are interested in the other favourites in each category (under the themes ‘Ruins’ and ‘Bright’) here are the links:
Guardian ‘Ruins’ Challenge (mine is the 3rd from the top)
Guardian ‘Bright’ Challenge (mine is the 12th from the top)
The following are the original versions of my photo entries which were selected:
Beatrice joined me a couple of weeks ago in my pad in Cape Town and took quite a shine to reading books on the Kindle. Clearly such talent had to captured and shared with the world. If you are on Facebook you can read more about the exciting adventures of Beatrice (and her predecessor Licky Sticky, the stick insect) on my page here.
This wreck is one of many which exist around the rocks where I stay in the Table Mountain National Park (at Sunset Rocks, near Cape Town). If you are interested in wrecks you can find more photos in my blog here. (apologies for the photo of a rather over exposed human wreck which also found its way into the article!).
So that is all for this week – the mountain of ironing appears to actually be getting bigger and I am not allowed to return to the Southern Hemisphere until I have at least enough clean clothes to allow me to use the path to Sandy Bay beach.
