In the Twilight Zone

Half light let me associate this Weekly Photo Challenge with Twilight.

And this is my impression after reading the poem of  African poet Unathi Slasha

Like Nxele, the Nguni cows
are never coming back
Their kraal has been
razed to the ground
As long as the royal sceptre
is clinched
in the right hand
of the adamant adanggaman,
the cows are to forever
wander, away
from the motherland.


Cape Dutch Gable

Just after I shot the ducks yesterday afternoon (see previous posting) I focussed on a new house in our street that has a traditional Cape Dutch gable. Used the Sigma 70-300mm and adjusted the Sony A77 camera to twilight to bring some evening sphere in it. No photoshopping needed; just as is. Stanford is our home and if you look to our pictures than you also know why it was awarded with the prestigious “Best Village Destination of South Africa”.
