The fire

It’s not only California that suffers from fire during the Summer months. It’s Summer here in South Africa and almost no day without a fire in the Western Cape. Recently, for the second time in a month, just outside our village.

At a gallery

The most interesting art galleries in South Africa you sometimes find off the beaten track. The gallery of artists Willem and Tina De Roubaix for example. It’s in Wolvengat; somewhere in the outback of the Western Cape. The artist couple is not internet minded (so don’t google) but their clientele can be found around the globe.

Here an example of their work (just visit the gallery with its sculpture garden someday)

Today’s special: A Photographer’s Paradise

The Overberg is a wonderful region in the Western Cape, South Africa. It’s a photographer’s paradise with ever changing light colours. The discovery of the real South Africa begins 100 kilometer beyond Cape Town.

Prime location

This is the house of Willemine; an eighty year old woman who wants to spend the last years of her life with her daughter in the UK. It’s in my village (Napier, Western Cape, South Africa); one of those many rural villages in South Africa where there is less crime than in the average European little town (just to get some misunderstandings about South Africa out of the way) and where the municipality prides itself in excellent service delivery. Anyway the house is comfortable and offers magnificent views. In case somebody is interested: Real Estate agency Chass Everitt (with a local office in the village) is bringing it on the market. And Willemine wanted me to make the pictures. 😉
