Monkey family

I got to test my brand new zoom lens in South Africa and Namibia! Lucky me! here´s the first post of (hopefully) a lot with photographs of this amazing countries and their landscapes and animals.

This was my first time in Africa, and for sure I´ll be back, to know other countries and back to these two that are absolutely breathtaking. When I sort the pictures trying to choose the best shots to post, it´s not easy. Beside the amount of pictures taken, it´s how stunning a lot of them are. I take breaks and remember the trip, and how I felt. And now I feel blessed that I got to see all this marvelous this nature has to offer.

In this occasion I´ll show you this family of monkey, mother, father and baby. Very cute!










Travel Theme: Smoke and Mirrors

I´m back (again)! It´s been a long time! I went on holidays, came back, tried to change my job unsuccessfully and started my own tiny business. And the excuse to post is this week´s travel theme!

Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in Pictures

Well, as usual, lots of things happened this year, we finally settled down in our new home, after almost two years of roaming. I learnt to cook new recipes. I also learnt that I can be a kindergarten teacher if necessary. I did a lot of crafts for the house. I grew my own lettuce. The winter, after there months of ice, fortunately ended! and the warm wind of the summer is blowing.

I tried doing bokeh!


I love the sun in the house during winter mornings…
