A ride with The River Rat

Our village is known for its bird population; a few hundred species nestling here. Most of them along the river. Three boat companies touring people around during sunrise and sunset. This morning I went with The River Rat. The others are The African Queen and Platana.

But I did not photograph birds; just making a few shots of the water plus of the village from down under. Photographing from the water provides photographers with a different perspective…

Street Photography 3: Approach

Living at the edge of the village has its advantages. Our street borders a stream (“Vlei” in Afrikaans) with an abundance of winged wildlife. Every morning I let the dog out and we are greeted by ducks, seagulls (the ocean is only a few kilometers in bird flight) and other birds I don’t know the name of. People jogging or on their way to work, etc. Rain or shine; it’s always wonderful and there are always ‘subjects’ to photograph. This serie of 10 begins with a duck in full flight and ends with our border along the wooden fence.
