Spectacled Langur

Had a great trip to Monkeyland near Plettenburg bay with my family a while back where we got to walk in an enclosure with a variety of different monkey species. 

I just loved this little guy. I knew if I waited long enough I would find the perfect shot to capture his beautiful face and personality :)

Paarl Rock

Was recently on holiday in the Western Cape... sooooo many pictures to go through ! ...this is the first one I've managed to edit.

The pic here shows the chains going up Paarl Rock in the town of Paarl in the Western Cape. Literally, a massive rock, or batholith (actually group of massive batholiths). The walk up is less strenuous than first appears and definitely worth it!

'The Wild North-East'

The Northern reaches of the North Eastern Cape always reminds me of old Western films... I was in the region for business over the last few days and was treated to some amazing sights. Unfortunately I was in a rush so was unable to stop to take more photos... I did manage to pull over to catch this scene. The previous night the first rains came to the area after the long hot summer... Very lucky to be there at the right time.

"Timeless Nahoon"

Took this snapshot while walking along the beach on an absolutley gorgeous Summers day. No massive hotels, restaurants or any other beach-front developments to be seen... This pic could easily have been taken in the 1970's ...hence the film look :)

Gone Fishing

A not too common site in South Africa. I came across a group of young men tending to their nets in a river in a near the agricultural town of Patensie in the Eastern Province. For the best part of the last decade this river has been near drying out completely due to persistent drought... thankfully heavy rains experienced this year have put an end to the drought, and given these men back a means of providing for their families.

"Long Walk Home"

A lil snapshot taken across a field while on business trip last week in the North Eastern Cape. Poor kid has to walk miles across open grassland to and from school everyday.

Rorschach Earth

Eventually got around to following my idea through to the finish... 

Here is presented an image of the Earth presented as a classic Rorschach test card. If you still can't see it...tilt your head to the left ;) 

Like most of my recent stuff (Most of which is still incomplete and unseen by anyone but myself) it is best seen as a large print, but I hope you all like it anyway :)

A Gun ?

My take on one one of Andy Warhol's 'Gun' artworks ... Going up on my wall at home. 

I find it quite thought provoking... I'll play the artist and not say what it makes me think/feel ... but leave it up to the viewer :)

Thoughts ? Feelings ? Opinions ?

Been looong time since taken pics...went on a trip into the country yesterday with my parents... Thought I'd try and practice my processing skills on this old Ford I came across before tackling what will hopefully be the best images from the trip ! :)
