In the Shipwreck Museum

The Overberg region houses some of the best (educational) museums in South Africa. The Genadendal Mission Museum, for example, or the Swellendam Museum. The Shipwreck Museum in Bredasdorp is also a jewel in the Overberg.

See for yourself.

Springbok team Bredasdorp

The ‘Springboks’ is the national rugby team of South Africa. Within South Africa there are many ‘springboks’ and not only of the human variety. Bredasdorp in the Western Cape is since recently blessed with an own team.

Sometimes they are visible from the road towards Napiersdorp. (pictured with a 400mm lens and cropped)

Exhibition Haiku Photography

HAIKU DANCE:


Slow song sweetly sung

she sways gently. wishing for

his tender embrace.


Next month at the Baardskeerdersbos Art Route I will officially launch my new colourful Haiku photographs as guest artist of Liz Van Den Berg (Gyotaku prints) at Tierfontein. Baardskeerdersbos is a hamlet tucked away between Gansbaai and Bredasdorp in the Overberg, Western Cape, South Africa.

Local Talent

Napier (South Africa) has got talent; we all saw that recently with the theatre spectacle ‘Wonderland’ in the School of Skills in Napier (next posting).

A talent is also Abigail Camille. Many know her as one of the faces of ‘Pascal of Napier’ (local cuisine). I’ve used her a few times as a model and although she still has to learn a few tricks she’s got the potential to become a great photo model (if she wants) 
Abigail Camille has many faces and goes up in different surroundings like a chameleon. I had the privilege to work with her on several occasions this year (with thanks to a.o. Vanilla Boutique and Jeremy Shoe Repair and Locksmith in Bredasdorp and Yvonne de Wit Jewellery in Napier (Okay; the last one does not count for she is my wife for life . Soon I hope to work again with her and if everything works out she will have the opportunity in the beginning of 2020 to learn a few tricks-of-the-trade from a well known African super model with whom I have another session.

Model in the making

Abigail Camille is, from young age onwards, dreaming of becoming a photo-model. She’s got the attitude, the body and the beauty including a multitude of faces. So together with Vanilla Boutique in Bredasdorp and Yvonne de Wit Jewellery in Napier we made a little (low resolution) youtube (high resolution on request). Any model agency out there interested???
