A stormy evening in Kimberley

There are very few things that leave me in wander, African sunsets are one of these rare occasions where I often forget to pickup my camera and just enjoy the moment. There is something dramatic about African sunsets before or after a storm I cannot explain, it just is what it is.

This photo was shot in the Kimberley in 2007.

Old Polariod Camera

photowalking is a great way to meet people and be a tourist in your own town at the same time but it’s also a great way to see the unseen, the little things. Here is an old Polaroid camera used by the South African military, just imagine what this camera may have snaped in it’s life? What stories it could tell us?

This photo was shot in the old Heidelburg prison in 2012.

Into the forest

Traveling South Africa is an adventure all of it’s own, our landscape are varied from the flats of the Cape to the mountains of the Drakensburg. But there seemingly is one constant, you are in Southern Africa, call it a dryness in the land. One thing that I never associated with South Africa was a lush canopy forest and yet Serenity forest is exactly that. A cool canopy forest where sunlight is rare and the air is filled with the forest smell. I was there for a short night and will return one day to have a walk in forest.

This photo was shot in the Serenity Forest Eco Reserve in 1995.
