Beyond the chair …

This morning I shot shades of a chair from four different positions and in Photoshop I created five different blends (‘HDR-mergers’) and processed these individually with different brightness, detailing, coloring, gamma, etc.

Just for the sheer fun of it.

All thumbnails but is you click on it they enlarge.

Portrait of Yogi the cat

This portrait is dedicated to a ‘lawyer’ in Holland who makes astonishing portraits of people; just for the sheer fun of it. Suspect (! 🙂 ) that for many pictures he’s using his gorgeous secretaries as model! And ‘Ooggetuige’ blogs them. Enjoy his pictures here (opens new window).

Oh… uh… Yogi is done in monochrome; some new skill that needs a bit of honing…_DSC7796

Sundowner at the Blue Moon

This week we enjoyed virtually every day, with camera in hand, a different sunset at different locations in and around our village. Just for the sheer fun I tell you that Stanford is THE Sunset Capital (Sundowner Capital if you prefer) of South Africa 🙂 . Here last night’s sundowner at the Blue Moon community just outside the village. Quite a few pictures; just click the thumbnails to enlarge.
