Recently I became inspired by a blog post of Laura Macky in which she revealed that her bathroom also functions as her photo studio. I was very uninspired that day but that changed immediate after reading about her high heels. Well the combination of high heels and bathroom brings quite a few associations to the surface. My one was that my feet (I do a lot of bare feet walking 😉 ) needed some attention. Why not spoil them in a foam bath? And so I did and took my camera with me. Maybe the Toemailers are now also into bathroom toes (?) 😉

Welcome in my temporary studio!

I’m not a sports photographer and I will never aspire a career in this specialization. But I was asked to shoot some pictures this afternoon at a soccer match. The local Rotary initiated a volunteers program for students from the USA. These students had a busy week; creating a garden at a school in a township, washing dogs with tick/flee shampoo and diverse other ’empowerment projects’. This afternoon they celebrated their weekend with a soccer match against a team of ‘townshippers’. It was like US-shoes versus African feet. Despite the shoes the students were no match for the locals. And at the end of the match, a group photo of both teams and food for all.
