The previous 3 postings showed some archive pictures I’ve been experimenting with. I’ve used all my software to achieve the results. But only two results I’m content about.
The first is ‘In pursuit of the future’. I wanted to draw in viewer into the truck and at the same time the viewer wants move away as fast as possible from the Bedford into what times might bring us.
The second picture is ‘The Horsemen’. People of the IsiXhosa’ tribe in South Africa are the best caretakers for horses. Every respectable horse stud owner employs IsiXhosa to look after the animals. The original picture (a sculpture) was shot in the Company Gardens in Cape Town. Although South Africa is nowadays known as the ‘Rainbow Nation’ it’s still a ‘black-and-white-thing’ so I left the colours out.
Bot pictures are for sale as prints at Saatchi Art.
This weeks Photo Challenge is SCALE. Another interesting challenge to play with. The first is a selfie titled ‘A close look’. The second and third are bracelets and rings (of the same but differently sized materials) of Yvonne de Wit Jewellery by who I am ‘hired’ to do her social media (well … I’m her husband 😉 ) The fourth picture was shot at the airport in Cape Town and it tells it’s own story followed by one of a miniature cuckoo clock in ‘The Little book Museum’ of Hemingways of Hermanus (another social media client of my). The sixth is that magical moment in an ancient forest where our hiking group felt silent, overwhelmed by the huge ‘scale’ of magic. Than 3 images of different insects. The mantis is pictured on a chair arm (4 cm wide). Than there is one of seagulls on a sculpture in the Company Gardens in Cape Town and the last one is shot at the farm restaurant of one of my latest new clients showing milk-barrels on an old Bedford milk truck.
