Snapped this yesterday on the way to lunch with my parents to celebrate my graduation (!)
Apparently this was a "controlled burn", which sounds like a pretty crazy thing to do, but I guess it's actually very important. I think all us Capetonians get a little anxious when we see our mountain on fire.

Guess what! I finally have a bicycle! It's not new and it needs some love, but I'm still so excited about it. Will post some proper "before and after" pictures when I have a chance, but I thought I would just take one of its sweet logo sticker for now.

Some photos of my neighbourhood that I've been gathering for my research project. I took these quite a few weeks ago, on a public holiday Wednesday, so the streets were pretty deserted. Not sure why I made them so grainy though!

One crazy dream I've has for long time now is to die my hair a mad colour... but I've always been too scared to go for it. My hair hasn't been dyed that much and so is still relatively "natural". There was this one time about 5 years ago when I had just finished school and I for some reason felt the need for blue hair. I didn't really know how to go about it and was in a very impulsive mood, so I simply grabbed a bottle of blue food colouring and headed to the bathroom sink! Needless to say, it didn't really work out too well.
I'm really loving these pictures of this pretty pink-haired model floating around a big city, you know, all glamorous and stuff. I think this might just be my next move...
instagram this week and already I think I might be hooked. It is all still a bit new for me, so not sure how often I'll be using or what kind of shots I'll be sharing, but hey! What's wrong with another little distraction anyway?

Happy Easter to everyone that celebrated it yesterday! (Or, if you were like me, you've been celebrating all week - I'm so sick of chocolate by now!) I thought these were a bunch of great ideas, especially the first two images, so sweet!

Here is the short stop-motion video that Lisa and I made together as part of our submission for the Sustainable Design Showcase that took place in March at the Cape Town City Hall. This video basically explains our campaign in a quick and informative way. Hope you enjoy!
Now that the Sustainable Design Showcase is over, I think it should be safe to publish this! These are part of the final submission that Lisa and I sent through to the competition. These are the printed items, but we also designed a website and created an informative stop-motion animated video.
