Master Thomas B. Tjasink, Esq.

We are back from our week away in the Natal Midlands and the Drakensberg – got home last weekend, in fact. I have since been down in Cape Town on business, and because Wednesday was a holiday, was able to take my mom out to a rather fabulous lunch at Cucina Labia in Muizenberg, the former residence of Mussolini’s envoy to South Africa and now a place of faded grandeur and fine cuisine. So there are tales to be told and photos to be processed and displayed.

First call goes, however, to the grandchildren – in this case, Master Thomas B. Tjasink, Esq., who kindly posed for the camera before we left on holiday.

The images, for those of you who are interested in these things, were all taken with the Nikon D500, 35mm f1.8 lens, and processed in Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro.

    Esq? In the U.S., this is a suffix used to identify those members of the legal profession. We in the former colonies still share Shakespeare’s view: “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.” We also consider three lawyers at the bottom of the ocean to be a good start!

    Given your well-justified pride in Master Thomas, I assume you did not intend disparagement.

    Your less than humble servant,

    1. Obviously, you don’t speak real English in Trumpistan. In England, which is where English comes from, Esq. indicates a gentleman, not a robed scoundrel.
