A city to love

I wanted to put these up at the time, to share centrally here with few of you, and then i completely forgot - here they come to life below : unpretentious, yet true to the light within images of a a city saved from the floods in Europe in June (2013), a city i cannot stop going back to .. A city to love

Last year's smell ..



Three portraits ..




Few points of departure..







Pripyat in Bulgaria ..









Journey's end ..

Andrew Wyeth on painting

"I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious."


How can i disagree with that ! Not a slightest possibility - this is the main reason why my paints are drying up in the studio - the utter satisfaction with 'seeing' the work before it is put down on the canvas ..

Whatever ..

Haïku pour le plus éloigné du Nord

à N

Vous envoler,
le Nord plus éloigné,
la planète déserte
où la neige
descend en été
et vous devez
tous les neuf vies pour survivre

vous - une recette pour une planète misogynic

Tanya Lieto

If i was a woman and not questions and absences -
i'd let her be my other half,
i'd let her cover me with breath,
i’d never unstick her from me,

stop the fingers, the lips

The Carlton

Downtown Joburg. Climbing the 50 (double height ceilings!) story Carlton Towers on foot, after a bet. Bet won in less than 25 min with short brakes twice

Like from somewhere in the 70s photo book ..

Bergsig, we love you

End of June. Another visit. Same corner of paradise ..

Keywords : piece, quiet, giraffes and kameelperd, and more giraffes ;-), buck of all sorts, warm winter, walk in the bush, warthog, birds and noises of the bush, not a soul in sight, winter fires, oxygen , and lastly - millions of stars above
















Evidently, the iPhone can shoot full res, noise free images, at virtually no light, while still preserving plenty detail (for what it is) - try the following 4 for measure




Finally, the trip won't be complete without sharing few from the also wonderful Mabalingwe and Zebula .. The former - for the setting, views / nature, the latter - mostly for the food and the game lying all over











What a better way to end it all, than at the Orient in Melrose Arch, feeding no end on hot Tom Yum, sushi and dim sum and the likes, while watching the winter outside on the streets ..
