going native

You asked for it, but I'm not sure what you asked for..

I'm in a bit of a quandary. You see, lots of folks have said "PICS!" and lots of others have said "STORIES!" Which is nice because I have lots of both, and I want to share. But someone also suggested that we have a Real Live Gathering with slides and pizza - and of course if I fill up my blog with pics and stories that'd be a boring slideshow* for those that'd already seen them. Also, when I got home there were not only the PICS and STORIES from Africa (for Africa?), but there were also the results from the photoshoot in my inbox, and the latest copy of Filament, both of which I want to write about.

Oh, the dilemma!

And since my body currently thinks that 4am is dinner time, I was up till daylight-ish processing my photos. It's given me an insight into fuvenusrs' life, and well - not my thing. I like to be awake when I can look out the window at stuff. So I forced myself out of bed at 10am in an effort to normalise myself.

Anyway, I eventually decided to just pick 10 photos semi-randomly and talk about them. The other stuff can wait, and you can let me know if you'd rather I carried on with the Ten At Random thing or stopped, bearing in mind that even if the slideshow thing were a popular idea, I doubt many folks would fly in from overseas for it.

* I did point out that slide shows of other people's holiday photos are kind of boring by definition, but the response was "But these are holiday photos of AFRICA!"

So there you go - ten photos at almost-random with explanations. Please let me know if you'd like to continue, and if you're local, whether you'd be interested in Boring Holiday Slides For Africa!
