One of those little things 1: Happiness

Most people have those invaluable things in and around the house. It can be a souvenir from a place visited; memories from childhood, a heirloom or whatever. I’ve made a photographic inventory in our house and during the next days I’ll publish the images in this blog. They are all in B&W.

Today is ‘Happiness’.

It’s (although ‘Made in China’) a souvenir from Holland; the country of our birth and growth. Last year, after 11 years, I set foot again on Dutch soil. Happy to be back for a short while.

Prickly with some color

Often the beauty of a plant is in its details; especially with succulent plants but than these are also our favorite type of plants. Just look at this Mammillaria specie; prickly with some color.

Pastel

What is really fascinating me at this stage (see also previous posting) are the ever changing colors that surround me. Most people don’t realize that during the day the colors change and even between days and times one can notice differences. The sky this morning at 7 had a different color than yesterday at the same time.

This morning at 7 (South African time) the sky was in the ‘soft mood’ with pastel tints dominating.

Karuna revisited 1

Sometime ago I did a photo session with Karuna, a 13 year old girl from our village. At this stage I’m redoing the portraits I made in photoshop. Just a bit of experimenting. All picture-elements shot in our garden and here in Stanford.

Today the first revisited image. Three more to follow this week.
