Aloe flower in the garden

The Western Cape is a Winter rainfall area. The aloes originating from this part of the world are flowering. This picture is a severely cropped and enlarged part of the original photo.

Bric à Brac in THE Book Shop

Some photo’s I made at Hemingway’s in Hermanus. You might ask yourself if this is a book shop or a museum? It’s described as one of the ‘must visit spots’ in the new Louis Vuitton City Guide of Cape Town. Funny enough Hermanus is NOT in Cape Town but 120 odd kilometers East of the Mother City..

Textures

A few of the textures I use for background layers of photo-imaginaries. All natural but after some processing including HDR-toning etc. At the moment a collection of a few hundred to choose from. These layers add some depth. They are an ‘art’ of their own … 😉

After the rain ….. 10

….. is always Sunshine.

After heavy rainfall on Thursday 9 May the sun came through and around 9 AM I shot several detail pictures with my Sony A77 with Sigma 70-300 Macro lens. The lens was directed more or less towards the sun. All images in B&W. Today number 1o of 10. Think that this photo and the first one are the best.
