Misty Mountains

One of the privileges of living in this wonderful countryside of Stanford, South Africa is the daily visual surprises. We can sit on our verandah and watch the world go by. Our house is at the edge of the village and elevated above the rest of the small community. Wednesday morning at around 6 I had to shoot this picture.

Wishing you all a great weekend. See you Monday!


Going bananas

Picturing a banana or picturing a woman eating a banana can be very tricky. Some people do seemingly like to think that it always has a sexual meaning. When I pictured a 13 year old model from our village some time ago I asked her if she wanted something to eat; fruit for example. All fruits are okay she said as long as it’s not a banana. So I pictured her with a banana but she was unable to bring the banana near her nose (“that awful smell”) and that is how I photographed her mentioning, in all innocence, that she “does not like bananas”… I should not have done that …..

Every village, even ours, has its own gossiping women….. And as long as everybody realize it’s all gossip we can just laugh about it.

Want some?

You’re too late.

I just ate it.
