About this blog

The Firefly Photo Files was born on 9 July 2008.  When I first started blogging it was to show off what was then my very limited photographic skills as well as the area I live in.  But as with most things this blog (and perhaps even my photography and writing) evolved.  The Firefly Photo Files transformed into Firefly the Travel Guy and has become my photographic guide to this beautiful country I live in, its travel destinations, scenery animals, bugs, birds, plants, flowers, history and culture plus some other stuff.  A reference guide to (not quite but nearly) everything South African.

So what can you expect?
