This is the fourth "chapter" of the Echo (Word) Challenge which Susan Tuttle of Ilkas Attic (blog) and her friend Christi are running. They put out a WORD, and the key is to interpret the word through the camera lens. The current word is SURPRISE,(click on dictionary of meaning) which can be "something unexpected", "sudden", it can also be a feeling of wonder or astonishment. I chose these two pictures.
Old church Chrissiesmeer
We were on a road trip in an area not well known (by ourselves), when we happened upon a little "village" of Chrissiesmeer and this dear old stone church. We had to stop immediately so that I could take pictures of the church and a number of other quaint buildings. I'm not sure if it's still in use or not, but the building itself is still intact and standing proud - something about old churches that I really love.
We came upon these two trees at the National Botanical Gardens - they are two different indigenous species (Stinkwood and Combretum) and appear to have grown together over a number of years, sharing the available space, and in places appearing to be entertwined or even "dancing"
Vintage Rose is an extension of all things that I love and adore, it's about appreciating things old and worn, it's about feeling at home, simple food, wine, good music and friends, it's about comfort and my unfailing love of fabrics and textiles of any kind. It's also about recycling, repurposing, re-inventing, re-using, revamping, and appreciating the small things around us.
