The ‘Whale’ in the Garden

This is one of the fastest growing succulent plants in our garden. It’s an Adenia spinosa and this caudiciform originates from the Highveld in South Africa somewhere in the area where one of my most faithful followers is nestled. The caudex can grow to approximately 2 meters in diameter. Last year I published an image on Facebook and somebody, who forgot to put her glasses on, thought it was a ‘whale’. Since than we always say that we have two whales in our garden. 😉whale4

Grape Harvest

With the grape harvest in South Africa about to begin I thought it was a good idea to ‘dive’ into my archive and re-process some harvest pictures of last year. Photo shooting at Springfontein Winery in Stanford, South Africa. Original RAW-images reprocessed with Topaz (Photoshop plug-in) in ‘opalotype’

Food presentation in Black and White

This morning I’ve been engaged in the assignment of food presentation in Black & White for a restaurant. I did one plate in different stages of ‘food-decoration’. I’ve chosen three images for this blog.

Imaginary: Feet are made for walking

For this imaginary I used 23 different (refined) textures for the background. Here and there I added the running kids, my feet and other (hardly visible) objects between the layers. For the ‘finishing touch’ I used (with many times an ‘undo’) the ‘content aware’ tool of Photoshop.

This imaginary is inspired by the Russian born artist Marc Chagall. All used images were made within a radius of 2 km from my home.
