After the rain

Some of the best garden pictures are made just after a rain shower. This certainly applies for flowers. The rain seems to contribute to the brightness of the colors. But this also depends on time and the angle towards to light source (sun). Etc. etc. These two images were shot at around 9 AM and the difference in color has all to do with the angle from which the photograph was taken.

One of those little things 2: Baboon sniff

Most people have those invaluable things in and around the house. It can be a souvenir from a place visited; memories from childhood, a heirloom or whatever. I’ve made a photographic inventory in our house and I publish the images in this blog, one by one. They are all in B&W.

Today is Baboon sniff. It’s the name of a plant that grows in the hot and dry Karoo in Southern Africa. It seems that baboons open the seed pods for a sniff. Haven’t figured out why (too many stories and opinions).
