The Ruins

Just wonder if Lady Ann Bernard stayed there in 1798.

For the outsiders: Lady ann Bernard was the traveling wife of the British governor. Thanks to her diary we know how people were living in the rural part of the colony.

The Ruins are part of the Springfontein Winery Estate here in Stanford.

Sculpture dressing

Last week we photographed some sculptures in the garden of Fraai Uitzicht 1798 and today it was time to dress them up a bit with ‘bits-and-pieces’ from our garden. It could be a faerie tale. All pictures taken with a Sony A77 VQ; some with the Sony 16-55mm lens and others with a Sigma 70-300 (macro) lens. The editing today with Adobe Photoshop CS6 on the apple iMac MC812 if that means something to you.
