Travel memories 1: Australia

During several removals in the past many things went lost or are still in unopened boxes. Sometimes I open a box like a few weeks ago. This box contained photographs of some of our travels. Still looking for many, many, other travel memories; especially the numerous ones for my work to the USA. Hopefully these pop un in times to come.

First an impression of Australia. All pictures are scanned and where possible digital improved.

Bottle Brush ….

… keeps on flowering. The Bottle Brush (Callistemon specie) originates from Australia and is so immense popular in South Africa that even local conservation people thin that this (tree-)shrub is indigenous to South Africa… 😉

Telecommunication with the ancestors

Spirituality of native (tribal) people around the globe, from Australia to Australia, has a significant element of ancestry in it. Native people of South Africa are balancing on the edge of traditional values and the ‘comfort’ of modern times.  Hence this imaginary of a Xhosa woman calling the spirits of her ancestors for guidance.
