A village awakes

Early morning I start the day with a doggy walk, followed by the obvious coffee, and most of the time I have my camera with me just in case of. There was a bit of mist in ‘Die Vlei’ (little lake) but not enough to make a faerie-like picture; still than I shot a few. Can you see the ducks? People going to work on their feet or by car and school children on their way to get educated by dedicated teachers (here in the village they are!); some in a hurry and others in slow rural pace. The sun is rising and lightning the moon. This is Good Morning in Stanford, somewhere in nowhere in South Africa!

It's red and green with everything in between but we prefer to see it from Black to White

These pictures of a Kalanchoe thyrsifolia (origin: Madagascar) are dedicated to Odile d’Harnois of Lectures au Coeur (freely translated: ‘Lectures of the Heart).

Pictures are like movies; some you like to see in full color and others in B&W with everything in between._DSC6447_DSC6460

_DSC6424_DSC6429This posting is dedicated to Ray Fausel who shows us so many landscapes in Maine, USA. In August 1986 I was briefly (2 days, 1 night) in this state and I regret that I did not stay for longer. Thanks Ray for sharing all these beauties!
