… is a performance I enjoyed yesterday evening in the Alma Cafe in Cape Town.
For the first time, the Alma hosted one of Cape Town’s great tribute shows, CCR: The Story of John Fogerty. Featuring the original cast members, Barry Thomson, Richard Tait and Robbie Stemmet (Boulevard Blues) this iconic and highly entertaining show.
An audience of 60 people packed along tables (there is always food in Cape Town) in a space of about 50 sqm which it had to share with the band. Great fun. Nice people all in their fifties and reliving the late sixties and seventies.
It was dark. I did not use a flash (virtually never do) but ISO 3200 and noise in pictures reduced with MacPhun Noiseless Pro. The rest of the processing I did with a variety of software.

This series takes a break. Just wait a few weeks. First she has to lay eggs and if so she has to brood on it. I’ll continue as soon as the youngsters are screaming for food. In the meantime I hope that the African Harrier Hawk (also a regular visitor of our garden) leaves them in peace….
… brewed “Method Classique” and served by people who really know to tell beer-(hi-)stories for hours with a never fading enthusiasm. The brewery is ‘Honingklip’ somewhere hidden in the country-side near Kleinmond in the Western Cape, South Africa. A must for every true beer lover travelling to South Africa. And the food, prepared and created in a ‘one-chef-only-kitchen’, is an excellent companion.
…. is Afrikaans for a person who parasites. If you ask people from Cape Town to join a festivity they will most probably say yes (never ‘no’ and sometimes ‘maybe’) but they won’t show up except when you clearly say that there is food served. Believe me; they’ll all be there and at least one hour before the start of whatever festivity. But that’s a ‘cultural thing’ 😀
Anyway last Sunday we had a different kind of ‘uitvreter’ in the restaurant in Hermanus. This one really liked our prawns …. (had to work one the last picture because the bird was moving ‘flashing fast’ … 😉 )
