Lockdown South Africa: Day 16


For 35 days I will document the lockdown in our village (Napier, Western Cape, South Africa).

All landscape pictures were made in advance. The other photographs from the comfort of home, sweet home.

All photo’s in Black & White. 1 Photo daily.

Today’s picture: Life goes on.

Retirement

Whenever I hear or read ‘Retirement Village’ (and with all respect!) I get an association with a phase between life and after-life. Yesterday I was standing on a hill and I pictured this symbolic view. It’s indeed very close.

The vane moves again

A week ago there was some life in our rural village. The vane of the church had been stuck for several years (the wind always came from the Southwest 😉 ) and the church board succeeded at last in obtaining the funds to ‘loosen’ the vane. In the meantime municipal workers cleaning the street and reverend Frikkie and his wife Serina (last picture) are happy.

An impression:

Silhouette 8

Not all will agree that this is a silhouette and that’s fine with me. I’m a purist by nature but I am also a notorious breaker of all kinds of rules and prefer to go for the unknown. Sometimes my behavior leads to a dent in my ego and that’s also fine. I only live once and life is there to be lived.

For this serie of 10 ‘Imaginary Silhouttes’ I made use of 2 beach girls (they won’t recognize themselves 🙂 ) for the first 9 and Yvonne modeled for the last one. I’m not fully satisfied about all but think that there are at least 2 or 3 that are acceptable.

Let me know what you think and I’m not afraid for another dent …
