Three (tree) photos for a Throwback Thursday

in The City of Neoxian3 months ago (edited)

I have had, I admit, a really scrappy day. I don't feel as though I've achieved anything. That said, I make a commitment, and I do my best to honour it. #throwbackthursday gave me an idea, as did recurring memories from that other social media platform. It's coming up nine years since we moved from Cape Town. We brought with us our ginger cat (sadly now in the big tree in the sky), but left "her" willow tree.


She and the squirrels which we were also sad to leave had, let's say, an interesting relationship.


That cheeky look wasn't always, shall we say, benign.


That said, the squirrel always won!

These photos are more than 10 years old and taken with my Kodak digital camera which is long obsolete. Long before I began to really "see" through a lens.

Until next time, be well

And then there's more:

  • If this post might seem familiar, it's because I'm doing two things:
    • re-vamping old recipes. As I do this, I plan to add them in a file format that you can download and print. If you download recipes, buy me a coffee. Or better yet, a glass of wine....?
    • and "re-capturing" nearly two years' worth of posts because of this.

Thank you @fionasfavourites, for using the CO2 Compensation Coin (COCO / SWAP.COCO) on Steem-Engine or on Hive-Engine to reduce your CO2 footprint. You want to join? Buy some COCO / SWAP.COCO and transfer them to CO2Fund's account @co2fund.

I've heard time and again that it's not the equipment that makes a photo great, it's the eye of the photographer (or something like that). Great shots, even if they were taken with a not so great camera, Fiona. And I can see why the photos of my Freddie make you miss your magic Melon. ❤️

Thank you, Traci. And I had a dream about a little ginger kitten last night...
