Pictured a very lively dog along the beach in Franskraal in South Africa.
The Dutch writer Simon Carmiggelt made a living by observing from his ‘own’ chair and table on a terrace in Amsterdam. He wrote about objects he saw, about people and interaction between them, the sky, the weather and so on. And his stories never became boring; he could even write five or six pages about lightning a sigaret; between taking a match and the first inhale of smoke…
I became inspired by this when sitting on two terraces; one in Somerset-West (Store Cafe) and at the terrace of Thandi in Elgin. I made a selection of 20 images (10 of each venue). Each serie I begin the gate and you may make your own story. My story is in each individual picture.
To provide this serie with an own signature I added HDR-toning to each picture.
Today we visited 4 of the 19 participating artists of the Baardskeerdersbos Art Route. Baardskeerdersbos is a small hamlet somewhere in nowhere in the Overberg in the Western Cape, South Africa. This artist community organizes annually the Art Route attracting visitors of all walks of life and from all over. The pictured sculptures are the work of ‘multi-disciplinary’ artist Niel Jonker.
