My official botanical name is Avonia papyracea and I’m South African by nature. I’m very insignificant, true but also beautiful if I may say so myself. I’m so insignificant that even that lot of Wikipedia is unknown with my existence but locals do if they see me; they named me ‘goose manure’….. Talking about respect … 😉 …

Still Moving or is it moving still? 5 of 5 (last = best?)

Grape Harvest

With the grape harvest in South Africa about to begin I thought it was a good idea to ‘dive’ into my archive and re-process some harvest pictures of last year. Photo shooting at Springfontein Winery in Stanford, South Africa. Original RAW-images reprocessed with Topaz (Photoshop plug-in) in ‘opalotype’
