Some stories from a trip need to be told separately. I didn’t walk around with all my cameras all the time, but when I did there were some amazing opportunities. The journey that I have undertaken, meeting people from all walks of life and learning from them, has been my biggest achievement. Aamir Khan I was walking on the beach with my FujiFilm (this camera has been to Europe, Egypt, Thailand, Mozambique and the Maldives) and Instax Mini when I saw Fathima picking up sea grass at around 6pm (low tide). She was etched against the sky and sea in…

Sometimes beautiful things come from a love story and then it is there for ordinary people like us. Memories Chapel is situated on the Memories Corner property in Midrand, corner Whisken & New Road. It is a small chapel with a big story. The couple who owns the property loves everything antique and has an antiques shop too. They decided to build the chapel and bought reclaimed wood for the exterior, found church pews, a pulpit and more beautiful treasures that may have ended up on a landfill. The chapel can be hired for small weddings and baptisms.

I don’t know what I’m enjoying more – taking photos with the Instax Mini 8 or taking photos of the Instax photos. Finding the doors also makes me happy and seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they see the photos is just such a nice feeling. When I first started thinking about doing the project I had a vague memory of my parents’ old Instamatic camera – and a few photos from my childhood. Then I got the Instax Mini 8 and it just gelled. The camera attracts attention and I get to take unique photos.

I will never be the person that says my BAE or it is AF something or ON FLEEK. Those aren’t real words – and I like my words. I do however like to use words like WANDERLUST and Lekker. (Now those words are mos lekker, jy weet.) You don’t have to travel far to see spectacular monuments and attractions, because right next to Pretoria is the Voortrekker Monument. It is an architectural wonder that will have you taking photos like a mad person. Back to this wanderlust thing… Pretoria is just over the river past a few hills, but actually…

There are certain things that will always be true about me, I love cats and I love pink. So when I stumble across a door that is the exact pink of my toes (and my favourite colour) I do a little happy dance and bring out the cameras. This pink door is at Sherbet Angel, a beauty spa, in Parkhurst (Johannesburg).

This little spa in this old Johannesburg neighbourhood is a little gem filled with everything nice, pink and sparkly with angel wings on top.

We don’t often stop at the beautiful place between us and our destinations, but when we do – magic happens. Last week I started my “Doors of… Project” with 3 cameras in tow, my trusty Fujifilm digital camera that I have dragged all over the world, my iPhone 6 and my brand new Instax Mini sponsored by Fujifilm. Taking photos with digital cameras are super easy – if you don’t like a photo or it is out of focus you just take another one. The Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 was a whole different story… I wanted to bring an element…
