“Photography deals exquisitely with appearances, but nothing is what it appears to be”. – Duane Michals (with thanks to Belgian photographer Luc Dewaele from whose blog I copied this quote).
Just got a nice CV-enriching email in from one of my clients.
A quote: “It is a wonderful opportunity to have made the acquaintance of such a brilliant photographer who has created for …….. an equally brilliant blog … the 30 something wordpress comments in my inbox this morning bear testimony to this!”……
It just made my day!!! Co-incidentally it’s also my Birthday 😀
I’m happy!!! So happy that I don’t add a picture to this post ….
In the previous posting Beth is showing off the 3-piece prom-dress her grandmother made. During this short Sunday afternoon photo-shoot session I made some additional portraits just for the sheer fun of trying out different processing techniques. I also worked on a few pictures of the previous blog submission.
I have changed the blog theme. The new theme -Forever- has a more refreshing look and is one of the themes that allows a slide show. See the right column of my blog. Still have to work on the colours (background, etc.) but that will come in due time.
In the meantime also I got annual contracts for social media presentation of a few clients. Have a look at the stunning jewellery blog of Yvonne de Wit (unique pieces of ‘down-to-earth art’) and the one of ‘the most unusual and quirky bookshop of South Africa’; Hemingways of Hermanus Both have links to their Facebook pages and use the same theme (with slide shows).

What I in fact want to tell is that I’m out of this blog … for one week … but be back Friday 4 October (that’s ‘Animal Day’ according to the Roman Catholic church which also happens to be my Birth Day….). Wonder if I’m going to meet Shiara …. 😉 Should be around in this part of South Africa I understood….
