Out of South Africa 4: Flower Power in Amsterdam

From the shoebox….

Herman van Bon Photography

Last year we went on a 4-week journey to Europe and Canada. It was for the first time since more than 11 years that we had a holiday ‘out of (South) Africa. We mainly visited family and friends but in between we took time to travel around a bit. With my Sony Cybershot 7.2 I shot a few thousand low resolution pictures (average 100 kB each) so don’t expect much high quality. For this serie of 10 I selected about 30 pics.

Today’s image was shot at a terrace in Amsterdam: a hair clip with hibiscus flowers.

Earth Wind & Fire

I’m always experimenting with new photo-processing techniques from Black & White reduction to in-drawings/paintings to the application of (own) textures and whatever. In our Private Gallery Napier I show visitors individual examples of each technique.

In my imaginaries I combine the different techniques. The triptych ‘Earth Wind & Fire’ is a good example of it. Coming weekend, 16-18 November, this work (next to many landscapes) will be on display during the Greyton Art Walk in Greyton, South Africa; a 90 minutes rural drive from Cape Town.
