Last week, Heather Mason, an American blogger who lives and loves Joburg, nominated me for the ‘Explore the Elements‘ photo challenge. Her blog 2Summers is an extension of her, and her pictures and text showcase her love for this quirky city we call Johannesburg. Thank you Heather for nominating me! My entries for the four elements are as follows: 1)EARTH Represents the hard, solid objects of the earth; associated with stubbornness, collectiveness, physicality and gravity. 2)WATER Represents the fluid, flowing, formless things in the world; associated with emotion, defensiveness, adaptability, flexibility, suppleness, and magnetism. 3)FIRE Represents the energetic, forceful, moving things in the world; associated with security, motivation, desire, intention, and an outgoing spirit. 4)AIR Represents things that grow, expand, and enjoy freedom of movement; associated with will, elusiveness, evasiveness, benevolence, compassion, and wisdom. As per the rules of this contest, I need to nominate five fellow bloggers to participate. Here goes: 1) Wise Monkeys Abroad – blogging couple from Australia whose travels never fail to fascinate me. 2) Indahs: Travel Story & Photography – an Indonesian who lives in Rotterdam. Indah loves travelling and diving, but not without her camera! 3) The Average South African – another fellow South African blogger who loves good food, music and travel. 4) Passion Through poetry – A South African (from Joburg!) who now lives in Sydney and cannot stop penning down poems. 5) Travels and Trifles – Tina is a great photographer and for her this challenge will be a walk in the park!
