The story of Dassie and the elephant

One day, a long, long time ago (long before the first European settlers set foot on Table Mountain),  Dassie and the elephant were crossing a wooden bridge somewhere in the Overberg region in the Western Cape, South Africa. Says Dassie to the elephant: “Together we make a lot of noise … don’t we cousin?”

Portrait of Yogi the cat

This portrait is dedicated to a ‘lawyer’ in Holland who makes astonishing portraits of people; just for the sheer fun of it. Suspect (! 🙂 ) that for many pictures he’s using his gorgeous secretaries as model! And ‘Ooggetuige’ blogs them. Enjoy his pictures here (opens new window). Oh… uh… Yogi is done in monochrome; …

And …. Another bird

There are a few hundred bird species nestling in a radius of 10 km in and around our village. Don’t ask for names for I’m getting old and tempt to forget ( 🙁 🙂 🙂 ) but they are beautiful!
