aerial patchwork

Back from a fabulous few days in Joburg. My second favourite South African city. Not that there's a whole lot to choose from or anything...

Lots to tell, lots to think and blog about, head feeling a little full and crazy. All in a good way. Raas kop leef.

But I did love these.

Shots of farmlands from the plane.

Wouldn't you love a patchwork quilt in these colours and patterns? 

Did you know those circular irrigation thingiemajigs are a South African design? We rock.

I love this! It is so good to know that I am not the only grown-up who takes photographs out of the window of a plane.

Molly, love the pictures! I am scared of flying, but I have to have a window seat for the views and then I am calm,I love it, the closest thing to.. er.. flying I guess! Until we start to desend, and all hell breaks loose!

and alexandra (since i talk to other people in the comment sections on blogs now--it's new while you were gone), you're definitely not the only one. have you ever taken pictures out the bathroom of the plane? that's fun. b/c it's not easy to find planes with windows in their bathroom, but it IS possible. :-) and gives a great angle on the wing/engines.
