This weeks Photo Challenge is SCALE. Another interesting challenge to play with. The first is a selfie titled ‘A close look’. The second and third are bracelets and rings (of the same but differently sized materials) of Yvonne de Wit Jewellery by who I am ‘hired’ to do her social media (well … I’m her husband 😉 ) The fourth picture was shot at the airport in Cape Town and it tells it’s own story followed by one of a miniature cuckoo clock in ‘The Little book Museum’ of Hemingways of Hermanus (another social media client of my). The sixth is that magical moment in an ancient forest where our hiking group felt silent, overwhelmed by the huge ‘scale’ of magic. Than 3 images of different insects. The mantis is pictured on a chair arm (4 cm wide). Than there is one of seagulls on a sculpture in the Company Gardens in Cape Town and the last one is shot at the farm restaurant of one of my latest new clients showing milk-barrels on an old Bedford milk truck.

Portrait of Noel Hunt of bookshop Hemingways of Hermanus with his collection of (collectable) Marilyn Monroe books
The first of visualised book related quotes in co-junction with ‘South Africa’s most unusual and quirky bookshop‘ which is NOT in Cape Town, Durban or J’burg BUT in Hermanus …
Beth Hunt is together with her husband Noel owner of the ‘most unusual and quirky bookshop in South Africa’ named after a classic American writer: Ernest Hemingway.
Hemingways of Hermanus is a shop where literature minded people from around the globe like to browse.
Beth never realised that she is an excellent model but don’t let her pose; just shot her at the right unexpected moment.
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).
