Abstract

Standard Bank | Cape Town

standard bank

Standard Bank is a fine firm. I believe. I actually do not know. But, judging by this photograph and their exterior, I would guess so. I have the occupation of making a building’s interior or exterior (generally both) look glamorous and wonderful. Although I can’t distort reality, I can enhance […]

Cape Town – City of dreams

Upper Woodstock

This city has few equals, if any. It’s no wonder then that so many photographers choose to ply their trade here – the landscape a veritable wonderland for us all. Few cities have the dual privilege of being squeezed between the mountains and the sea, and fewer of those remain […]

Power lines on a can of Coke. Power lines through everything. They’re most beautiful when juxtaposed with nature though, somehow. I […]

Natal Photography

Woodstock Shenanigans

Photography Woodstock

Nothing like venturing out before dawn to a little viewpoint above Woodstock (Cape Town) to take some early morning shots. Thermos of tea, some food, good mate, better light (!), and this, my favourite, shot of about 30 non-deleted ones. One of the best things about photography is the way it […]
