Today was my last day at IBM as I have decided to retire a year or so early. Many plans for the next stage, but primarily focusing on my passions of photography, Africa, and travel http://abandonit.com and https://www.facebook.com/McNairnPhotography.

It has been an amazing 20 years on and off (IBM SA, Lotus and IBM UK) having had the privilege to work with some of the most talented and wonderful people in the process. What an incredible time it has been, and now on to the next phase.

Creative and hugely impactful
 
Brilliant use of location-based SMS inside a cinema to scare the crap out of people from texting and driving. Kudos #VW Shot in Hong Kong.

Rain, mud, stuck, recovery ... repeat 3 times ... now all 4 wheels were buried beyond recognition ... we were in serious trouble, and there was no-one else driving in these conditions

The Edinburgh fringe festival kicks off for us with a trip to see Le Clique and a quick Aperol spritz before going in.

Leaving the flooded Central Kalahari reserve behind with mixed feelings, we sample rural type repairers and end up in the comfort of a real bed after a wonder meal cooked by someone else!

Gemsbok, Springbok, Lion, Jackals, Vultures, Kites, Ostriches and Giraffe ... even the rain couldn’t detract from an amazing day!

A round-a-bout route to Deception Valley, Central Kalahari Reserve, via Rakops, sees one vehicle lost from the safari, and the remaining two irretrievably committed despite looming problems
