This weeks Photo Challenge is SCALE. Another interesting challenge to play with. The first is a selfie titled ‘A close look’. The second and third are bracelets and rings (of the same but differently sized materials) of Yvonne de Wit Jewellery by who I am ‘hired’ to do her social media (well … I’m her husband 😉 ) The fourth picture was shot at the airport in Cape Town and it tells it’s own story followed by one of a miniature cuckoo clock in ‘The Little book Museum’ of Hemingways of Hermanus (another social media client of my). The sixth is that magical moment in an ancient forest where our hiking group felt silent, overwhelmed by the huge ‘scale’ of magic. Than 3 images of different insects. The mantis is pictured on a chair arm (4 cm wide). Than there is one of seagulls on a sculpture in the Company Gardens in Cape Town and the last one is shot at the farm restaurant of one of my latest new clients showing milk-barrels on an old Bedford milk truck.
