Greetings from South Africa

Hi, I'm Gina. Some of you may already know me from one of the other sites I belong to, but I'd like to introduce myself to the rest of you.

I live in sunny South Africa, so while most of you will be writing about the joys of summer right now, you may find me complaining about the miseries of winter from time to time. But I'll try to see the positive side of life where possible.

One of my hobbies is photography, so any photos I include in my articles will be my own. I also enjoy growing bonsai trees, so you may get to see some of those too. And I hope I won't bore you if I choose to write about my favourite sports - cricket and tennis.

Hi. If you've got a good eye you don't need a professional camera to take good photos.

Well, I love this first photograph, very nicely done. And I hope to see more pictures. What type of software do you use to manipulate them?

Hi Laura-n-Sasha . Thanks for the compliment. I use Photoshop CS5, but a lot of what I do doesn't need such fancy software. I recently started experimenting with GIMP for a short tutorial series I started writing at Bubblews, and it's really good - and free.
