As this is the only time, so far as I recall, that I’ve seen a mother warthog suckling her infants, I share this image – not as a great picture, but simply as a record. Nikon D500, 70-300mm. Processed in Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro.
Two little warthog piglets were playing a robust game of catch and head-butting when we came across them at the edge of the camp in Marakele, on our first afternoon there, at the end of a game drive on which we had seen virtually nothing. Needless to say we sat for a while and watched […]
Those of you who saw my recent FaceBook post (I’m a bit ashamed to be using FaceBook right now, given the nasty political business it’s been enabling – but on the other hand, perhaps FaceBook is appropriate, given the nastiness I’m about to mention) will know that I was – thanks, Mark, for the clarification […]
To maintain my sanity, or at least the appearance thereof, from time to time I have to take a break from what another photo blogger calls the work that pays the bills, and process an image. Here, as a foretaste of an upcoming posting, is just one image, of a pair of zebra in the […]
Here are two final images from our visit a couple of weeks ago to Cape Town and the V&A Waterfront: a young girl climbing on a metal sculpture near to the Zeitz-Museum of Contemporary Art Africa. Rob thinks the girl is lost in the image; I think the image of the girl is subtle. Decide […]
Below ground, at the Zeitz-MOCAA in Cape Town, run what they call ‘the tunnels’ – passages underneath the structure that housed the wheels and chutes that controlled the grain elevator. Spaced out at intervals along the passageways are low benches or tables, stacked high with prints of artwork, with an open invitation to everyone to […]
Here are four rather different images of the fantastic Zeitz MOCAA at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town: two are in colour, two are in black and white; three are essentially abstract, while the fourth, showing a film projected onto a wall in the Dust House, has the puzzling air of a non-sequitur or riddle. […]
Here is an image, of Cape Town harbour, looking towards the old Customs House and the red Clock Tower and the open sea beyond, that gives me pleasure. The composition is simple, conventional, but to my eye satisfying in its calm regularity. But it is the light that excites – the cloudiness in the sky, […]
We went for a walk, one evening in Cape Town, along Hout Bay Beach. The sun was flaring out behind the mountain, the sea was calm, and a pale mist enveloped the walkers. Here are two images. For those who are interested, both were shot with the Leica D-Lux.
