A spiritual and natural interaction

This week’s photo challenge.

Landscaper Tommy Nwgenya is not interested in plant names. He rather communicates with his ‘babies’. It’s a gift of heaven to look into and feel a plant and then understand how it feels, how it natural grows and where it wants to be planted ….

Tommy lives in harmony with nature.

Such a wonderful smile ….

… tells you everything between the interaction of the dog and his ‘boss’. Made this picture during the Dog Show earlier today. Before the dog show was a horse show and the dogs were very distracted by the horse droppings so all did not go that smooth with the dogs and you can’t blame these animals for that.

Pictures from the square yard 8: Store Cafe; In a hurry

The Dutch writer Simon Carmiggelt made a living by observing from his ‘own’ chair and table on a terrace in Amsterdam. He wrote about objects he saw, about people and interaction between them, the sky, the weather and so on. And his stories never became boring; he could even write five or six pages about lightning a sigaret; between taking a match and the first inhale of smoke…

I became inspired by this when sitting on two terraces; one in Somerset-West (Store Cafe) and at the terrace of Thandi in Elgin. I made a selection of 20 images (10 of each venue). Each serie I begin the  gate and you may make your own story. My story is in each individual picture.

To provide this serie with an own signature I added HDR-toning to each picture.
