Duck shooting in Stanford, South Africa

I love Japanese paintings and prints and should like to have an original at home. This morning, before the rain turned loose, I had my doggy walk with camera in hand and came across a bunch of ducks having their Sunday morning nap on some branches sticking out of the water. While processing the pictures I cropped one and with Japan in mind I started to play a bit with Photoshop. Not perfect but who is? Let’s stick to a Dutch/African interpretation of it.

Street Life in the Village

Don’t expect the city buzz. Stanford is after all just a small village. Everything goes in rural pace. This (Saturday-) morning we went to the local market, had some coffee along the road, chatted about everything and nothing with other villagers and in between I made some street shots.
