    Bathroom Renovation

    Photo 19 of 356 of the 2015 Collection

    Randomly chosen by good friend Shantal Hardy from my Blue collection.
    Walking around old buildings is always a treat for me, I tend to “see” what the apocalypse could be like.
    But I also see the rejuvenation possibilities and that always puts me in a good mood.
    This is a bathroom renovation in one of these buildings, no much use today but just imagine…

  • Desert of the Kalahari Redux

    Click image to see larger/full version
    This is the last of 3 Monochrome Panoramic of the Kalahari Desert taken on the road back from Mata Mata.
    You may have noticed that the camera has changed from a Canon EOS 300D to a 400D, we had an accident during that trip and both my Sigma 170-500mm and my 300D where damaged beyond repairs. We had to drive back to Upington where we where lucky to find a Canon EOS 400D so we could carry on for a further 4 days in the Kalahari.
    Shot with my first DSLR 7 years ago.

    The Kalahari desert, not a sand desert, at least not all of it.
    Proceeding never edited or published old photos is a lot of fun and frustrations, fun because I have learned so much in post-processing techniques, frustration because I see my mistakes and think “How can I have been so ignorant?”
