See yesterday’s picture (scroll back to second post below) In the meantime I figured out via Facebook that not many villagers know about the name.

>1000 followers

This morning my Facebook photography page noticed me of the 1000th follower/liker. Co-incidentally somebody from the village I live in. In the meantime I see that there are 1004 fans. I’ve never paid FB for that although I know I could multiply the audience quite easily by paying for so called sponsored links each targeting …

My ego tripped this morning

For what it is worth: one of my images became the banner of the Facebook page Cape Reflections. The administrator of this group wrote a review and that made my day ( 😉 ). “The banner photograph at the top of the Cape Refections Group Page was the most liked image posted to the page in …

I’m far from satisfied hence the addition ‘temporary‘; it will change from time to time anyway. But it is a start. In the cause of (beginning) 2014, with newly downloaded Photoshop plug-ins, the …

Me and social media; what about you?

There are ‘those’ who are sending continuously their ‘where-about’ and ‘personal experience’ messages into cyberspace via a multitude of social media like Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter. I’m not a favourite of opening my ‘well-being’ or ‘not-so-well-being’ plus my ‘where-abouts’ to the whole world. I’m a bit of a cyberspace hermit in that regard but I …
