Welcome to our March edition of Going Places with Michael Szabath Photography, our first for the year, one that is shaping up to be bigger & better on many fronts, giving hope & shedding a silver lining to many dark clouds of late.
What a strange year 2020 was, one that we all would rather forget. Finally, there seems to be a glimmer of hope, what with a worldwide rollout of a claimed saviour vaccine & as with everything, you have the believers & those opposed to mass immunisation.
Same thing happened in the fight against Polio, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Whooping Cough (Pertussis), Hepatitis B, Hib (Haemophilus influenzae type b), an injection for Pneumococcal Disease and oral drops for Rotavirus, we must look at how successful these programs have been & have mostly eradicated these once common diseases, so here is hoping the same for this one.
Our incredible country is opening for travel once again. Yes, overseas travel is still off the books & probably will be for quite some time yet, so let us enjoy what there is on offer here in our own beautiful backyard, after all we are the “Lucky Country.”
Scientific probs have landed on Mars from a few different countries, a new Earth like planet called Kepler-1649c has been discovered some 300 light years away & theories are that there could be liquid water that is capable of sustaining life on it.
Summer has provided some good rainfall in most places, replenishing our dams, watering the crops & basically giving us life.
Our humble publication is growing & the numbers are really encouraging with some 7000 hits each edition, having started with 1500 for the first one in Oct 2019. Our reviews on Google Maps have 11,000 hits while the photos submitted to them have an incredible 903,000 hits, staggering in that they were 250,000 in Sept 2020. Certainly figures that have renewed my passion for our ever changing landscape & make me want to get out there.
People are emerging with newfound energy, they are seeing family again who were separated during lockdowns, they are getting out there. Life finds a way to go on! As Vicki said in her powerful editorial,
“Don’t stress and be anxious.
Live in that moment.
Breathe and enjoy that moment.
Travel WITH Mother Nature THROUGH Mother Nature and see her wonder!
Being in Nature is grounding! So, get out there, travel and see our beautiful sights!”
