With no money in the pocket one has to be ingenious

Imagine you have an entrepreneural mindset and want to become a builder but you don’t have money in your pocket. As being a South African and grown up in a ‘historical disadvantaged community’ you can also forget about lending money at a bank. In that case you have to be ingenious. There are luckily many South Africans with such a background who have the ability to ‘make something out of nothing’. This carpenter for example only had some hand tools but needed a ladder to fulfill his job. He just cut some braches of an invasive eucalyptus tree nearby and made one himself.

You have to love this guy.

Duck shooting in Stanford, South Africa

I love Japanese paintings and prints and should like to have an original at home. This morning, before the rain turned loose, I had my doggy walk with camera in hand and came across a bunch of ducks having their Sunday morning nap on some branches sticking out of the water. While processing the pictures I cropped one and with Japan in mind I started to play a bit with Photoshop. Not perfect but who is? Let’s stick to a Dutch/African interpretation of it.
