For a change, and long time coming, we actually did what we love doing, pack our camper and go where the nose points to. Last weekend it happened to be the Kalahari, where we parked off on a dune and roamed the area. Interestingly, and yet again, I took the big bag, tripod and entire […]

On a farm in the south of Namibia, a car and an acacia tree exist in tranquil harmony. By the looks of it for decades and more to come. So long Tommy

Burnt House #1

It was a while ago when we spent a weekend at Gross Barmen, a Hot Springs Resort on the banks of the Swakop River, 100kms from Windhoek. “We”, that would be a friendly and fun bunch of graphic designers and my humble self, who got together informally, took some pictures, exchanged ideas and later looked […]

… which isn’t actually a Macro shot, or at least not taken with a Macro lens as such. This is a close-up of a pocket dictionary the size of a cigarette box, taken with the Canon 50mm f1.4, which is probably one of the best lenses little money can buy. This lens is sharp, it’s […]

Which gives me plenty of time, as for months to come we will go through yet more skin crackling drought, tons of dust and harsh, cold winds … only to gradually be replaced by scorching heat before it eventually and hopefully  starts to rain.

More Candid Camera

It’s interesting, how you shoot more pictures of the first born – me at least. The boys’ granddad even mentioned to me that in his case child photography decreased gradually from number one to number four.
