I did a review on my little camera a few weeks ago, but yesterday discovered this incredible stop motion they made for it! wow! This is in a whole new league of stop motion! Keen to try something like this one day though.

If you saw my page in the July issue of Fairlady you'll see Nonna was one of the things i'm smitten with at the moment. It's a beautiful shop packed with shelves full of beautiful and unusual things for your home and it's right in my nice neighborhood Craighall Park. I went on friday and took LOTS of photos. They've generously sponsored a R777 voucher (random but awesome right) for me to give away to you guys!
Excited? I am. To enter all you have to do is leave me a comment below telling me what you like/want in the photos above! : )
This competition is only open to SA residents. If you live outside of Joburg, I can either send you the voucher to spend when you come up here, or I can pick out something for you? what do you think?
I'll draw a winner on Monday the 1st August 2011. and again if you tweet about it you get an extra entry (It worked for Tori last time - twice the chances of winning! just remember to @emmajanenation me in your tweet so I can see it!)
Good luck! x

This trip I have to say I got the 'weary traveller's legs' way too often.. too much time on your feet and no desire to walk further, no matter how close something is, which is a bit of a pity as the museums and art galleries are one of my favourite things about London. I did manage to do two favourites from last time though - The V&A museum and the Tate Modern, and one new one - the Museum of Brands, packaging and advertising.

We went to Brighton on Sunday and it was mother-flipping hot day so the whole of London decided to go too. It was super busy but a lovely little beach town. awesome victorian pier & fun fair. pebbly beach. fish and chips. seagulls. beach chairs. ice-cream. blue skies. blue sea. nice shops in "The Lanes".
This is a little series of pictures I did of my little niece while we were on Brighton beach.

Here are a few things i've bought here which I think have such pretty packaging. I love the ginger beer and the Jelly beans.

Found them at hospice (on sale. yes a sale at hospice) and thought of someone who might like them.

I get a lot of people who ask what camera and editing programs I use for my blog photos so I decided to do a emmjanenation first.. and do a review! I'm no pro and wouldn't consider myself a "photographer". I just really like taking nice pictures.
So this is it. The Olympus pen E-P1. We have it in silver, but how awesome does it look in white?
It's fully manual, there are interchangeable Lenses from 7 to 800mm, and it's SUPER light. Dyl and I both have SLR's and they're just not practical for travelling, or taking to a coffee shop.. So he bought the Olympus just before our Paris trip last year.. and it's still going like a bomb. It's probably our favourite camera and best buy ever.
and.. it just looks rad! Everybody is always so fascinated that it's not a film camera because it has that proper old school olympus look.
I used it for my latest London trip, and the things I love about it is 1. it's so light 2. the colours are always beautiful 3. the depth of field is awesome 4. it's so easy to use 5. I shoot square format - so my pictures always fit snugly into my blog posts 6. I can put the memory card right into my macbook (no cables!) and upload immediately to Lightroom.
Lightroom is the program I use to edit and export all my pics (Dyl finally convinced me to use it after a few years of only using photoshop) and it's really improved the way I edit all my blog photos and in half the time too. I really recommend it.

On my last day in London I went with a friend to a concert in Hyde Park - The Vaccines, Beirut (who are both awesome bands by the way), Mumford & Sons and Arcade Fire. I felt so spoilt to see more than one good band in one day.. imagine what Glastonbury must be like? These are a few pictures from the day. [They had an 'arcade' set up with all sorts of games like pac man and a free photo booth - awesome right?]
If you want to see some more official looking pictures like below (this guy makes me blush a bit, especially when he sings) click here.

Since I arrived in London i've been spying out this awesome place, almost everyday on the bus. and finally went there today with my sis. It's called Byron and their slogan is 'proper hamburgers'. and it is just the most gorgeous place I think i've ever eaten in. I felt like I was in mad men and pretty much snapped away the entire time I was there, so this is a very narrowed down selection of pics (and it's still photo heavy - sorry). : )
