Team Up Thursday

This week's theme, as chosen by Cat is 2010 Soccer Spirit:

I chose the theme 2010 Soccer Spirit as today is the day before the opening ceremony and kick-off. 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.
Thanks Cat - stunning stunning pic.  You and I definately are on the same page because that is exactly the image I was hoping to capture whilst in EL on Tues!  
And mine:
When Cat suggested  2010 Soccer Spirit as this weeks' topic - I thought 'great topic, but where do I capture soccer fever in my small dorpie (town)?  I had a whack of plans, none of which materiliased.  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 although there may be no Soccer Fever in our small farming town - there sure is in our house!
Please pop over to the other participants in Team Up Thursday to see their pics!
