2010 Soccer World Cup fever.

 I chose 2010 World cup soccer fever for our theme this week as tomorrow will see the opening ceremony and match.

First Shayne's:
When Cat suggested Soccer Fever as this weeks topic - i thought great topic, but where do I capture soccer fever in my small dorpie?  I had a whack of plans, non of which materialised.  This shot did though, which was by fluk (accident) and I'm completely thrilled with it!  My eldest daughter was obviously having a Soccer moment, and I caught her loafing on the couch, completely mesmerised by whatever was on the TV, with all her soccer paraphenalia around her.  I just love the vibrancy of the colours and her idle fiddling with the flag (on a pencil!).  So altho there may be no Soccer Fever in our small farming town - there sure is in our house!

I really took so many pictures over the week for this one - flags, kids in soccer shirts, vuvuzelas etc, but this one somehow remains my favorite as the colours are just so vibrant. This street seller apparently only sells South Africa supporters items and no other country's but you can literally get anything for any country for sale on your local street corner.

For some more Team up Thursdays have a look at:
Marcelle and Kerstin

  11. I can only imagine the excitement level in much fun!

    I wrote a post about soccer fever, at least in our house. You'll have to check it out. :)

    Hope you and yours enjoy The Cup!


So what's on your mind?
