26 Weeks Letter Challenge: “Z”

And better late than never, here is my “Z” entry in this wonderful challenge. I’m sad that it’s come to an end and hope that Lori runs it again next year (hint, hint ;-))

I’m going out on a limb here, aka blogger’s license – it’s not just photos of things that start with “z”. It’s also photos of things that have “z” in the name 🙂

Zebras…

26 Weeks Letter Challenge: U V W X Y

U V W X Y…I’m catching up on the last 4 weeks.

U is for urn – a Roman one, unearthed in the archaeological dig of the Roman Theatre of Lisbon.

V is for vines and vineyard – I don’t recall where this one is…it’s in the Cape region. It could be Stellenbosch, Franschoek or Robertson regions.

W is for web, covering a well.

26 Weeks Letter Challenge: “S”

Here is my offering this week, representing the letter “S”. Definitely much easier than “Q” a couple of weeks ago.

I published this photo on Instagram this week. The sea is mesmerising and I upped the structure and saturation a bit to see the effect of the surf a bit better.

Sea, sun, surf and sand…need I say more? Isn’t the alliteration perfect 😉

A perfectly imperfect seashell found on a walk on the beach last weekend. I like the perspective of this photo with Che’s hand in the foreground and the rest of him including the sand out of focus.

Shadows of Che and me on said walk on the beach. I like that the shadows are of me and Che on the sand far below and Che’s arm in the foreground.

The beginnings of a healthy smoothie. Spinach, blueberries, apple, linseeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, turmeric, and a touch of L-glutamine…topped up with pomegranate juice and water and zizzed in the fabulous Nutribullet.

A warming and comforting winter vegetable soup, one of my favourite foods. I could live on soup breakfast, lunch and dinner – summer, winter and all the other seasons in between.

A rare sunrise photo from me because at this time of the day I optimise for sleep. I have posted this photo before and I’m posting again because it is so rare for me to be awake at this early hour.
