Skylines

So as a contrast to the endless posts of sunsets and sea, I have decided to show another, equally beautiful, view of South Africa that I fell in love with on my roadtrip. Here are a selection of skyline views that I took on my iPhone as I tried to capture the sense of endless space that is so characteristic of the Karoo. These photos were taken in and around the Addo elephant park area.

New Year. New Camera. New Phone.

I feel overindulged. Spoilt. I feel like I should be demanding hip hop horses and a sweet 16 (missed the boat by several years but regression can occur on demand). I have been so lucky.

Sometimes I catch myself gazing into the face of my shiny new iPhone, and then realise I look like a narcissistic prat checking out my reflection. This is the problem with smart phones. They are addictive. I have become obsessed with Instagram (follow me on http://instagram.com/leilalook/ ). Unhealthy. So Good.

Oh. And London’s been pretty damn good-looking and photogenic recently.

Anyways. Here are the recent products.

Snow just makes London look so much cleaner!
