My first Blog entry

Here I am, this is me, there's nowhere else on earth I'd rather be. Here I am, just me and you...
Well any more of that Brian Adams song and it won't have any relevance to this blog. I spend a lot of time in Cyberspace. Places like Facebook, Flickr and as well as Blogs like Port Elizabeth Daily Photo knows me very well. I have made loads of cyberfriends that I probably would never have met in real life. People who you can share things with even though you may not know them in real life. Some of my cyberfriends I have met and it feels like bumping into people you know well, although you are meeting them for the first time.

I decided to start my own photo blog and share with anybody interested the world I live in. At one stage I considered doing a daily photo blog, but that has its limitations. This way I can post a number of photos on one day or I can disappear for a while and not post anything. I also started a personal blog where I talk about things that happen to me, friends, family and whatever I feel like.

So who am I. To my cyber friends I am Firefly. I live in the friendly city of Port Elizabeth, part of the Nelson Mandela Bay metropolitan area, in sunny South Africa. I work in the tourism industry and love traveling, the outdoors and photography. Photography is just a hobby at this stage and my camera is nothing more than an entry level Kodak Easyshare, but I love taking photos. Most of my pics are travel and nature photos so stick around and allow me to show you more the beautiful city and and country I live in. I am married to a wonderful woman and have two lovely children (well that is when they aren't plotting something). Enough about me.

So, welcome to my blog


  1. Hello Firefly,
    It's great to read something about somebody who is so happy and content about where they live.

    I love Port Elizabeth too.

  2. Rock on "Light with Wings".

    Just don't tell too many people about how great PE is, us locals need to keep a little piece of heaven to ourselves.

  3. Hey there Firefly, welcome to blogland! And some great pix so far, keep em coming! You are so right, if we ever meet in real life, you will already feel like an old friend! (Hehe, maybe we already have crossed paths and were not aware of it!
