The Amazing Sunset 4: Winged friends

The date is Sunday 12 May 2013 and the time somewhere between 6 and 8 PM. Location: a hidden spot along the lagoon near the village. Together with friends and a great colored family from Mount Pleasant (who also discovered this spot…) we experienced one of those numerous amazing sunsets our area has to offer. In and around the lagoon is an abundance of bird life and it is hard to make pictures without any winged friends in it… This serie provides you with a visible idea but no picture can match the experience of sitting, chatting and watching on the spot. I shot just over 200 images and only 19 survived my first selection.

Part 4 is dedicated to our winged friends in the lagoon; photographed during different moments in time and angles.

Out of South Africa 2: Fabrikk

Last year we went on a 4-week journey to Europe and Canada. It was for the first time since more than 11 years that we had a holiday ‘out of (South) Africa. We mainly visited family and friends but in between we took time to travel around a bit. With my Sony Cybershot 7.2 I shot a few thousand low resolution pictures (average 100 kB each) so don’t expect much high quality. For this serie of 10 I selected about 30 pics.

Today’s images of the outdoor theatre spectacle ‘Fabrikk’ were shot in Winterthur near Zurich in Switzerland. DSC09832 DSC09825

Street Photography 7: Doggy Walk

Living at the edge of the village has its advantages. Our street borders a stream (“Vlei” in Afrikaans) with an abundance of winged wildlife. Every morning I let the dog out and we are greeted by ducks, seagulls (the ocean is only a few kilometers in bird flight) and other birds I don’t know the name of. People jogging or on their way to work, etc. Rain or shine; it’s always wonderful and there are always ‘subjects’ to photograph. This serie of 10 begins with a duck in full flight and ends with our border along the wooden fence.
