Ominous

I took this photo a couple of weeks back whilst spending a couple of days on the family farm (my in-laws'), away from work and any kind of internet connectivity whatsoever. This obviously meant that I had to keep busy in some other way and photography is one of my

Rollercoaster

My natural instinct is to blog about "how life is a rollercoaster" or something silly like that (purely because the photo would compliment content like that), but that kinda content probably doesn't justify the photo much... Instead I'd say that I've been experiencing a kind of rollercoaster effect

Santa Monica

Jeanne & I've been chatting about visiting Santa Monica again (and perhaps living there for a while) every now and again in the last couple of weeks. When we visited LA in December last year, we spent 3 absolutely amazing days in Santa Monica and loved how much it felt

Mango Salsa

Got my beloved 24 - 105 L Series lens back from the repairman and this was one of the first photos I took. Oh, how I love you my dear. :) BTW... What you see above is a new recipe for a mango salsa of sorts: garlic, basil pesto, mixed peppers,

Beverly Hills Oasis

You can't spend 4 days in Los Angeles (Hollywood to be precise), without taking one of the city tours to see "all of the homes of the stars". What bullshit. Jeanne & I took one of these trips and proceeded to waste 2 hours of our time seeing

Still Pure

Spent an amazing day in Riebeek Kasteel, which is a "boutique" little town out in the countryside, about a hour's drive away from home. The cool thing about the day is that this isn't something I ever considered doing last year. Part of my new year's resolution was

Palazzo Photography

I'm weird as a photographer. Not arty, not expert and most definitely not abstract by any means. Yet, I absolutely love taking photos like this. Having had the opportunity to travel quite a bit in 2011, I found myself walking the streets of cities that I was completely unfamiliar with.

The O.C.

Visiting Santa Monica on our last trip to the States was most definitely the highlight of the whole trip (contrary to the relative let down of Vegas). We stayed in a sweet boutique hotel, right on the beach and Jeanne & I got to spend a blissful 3 days just

Leaving Las Vegas

So I got the opportunity to go to Vegas in December 2010 and I was so excited about seeing this (supposedly) mystical place. Yet this photo (from our very first day there) is probably my best memory from the almost 5 days we spent there... I can't bad mouth Vegas
