Its been a busy couple of months. With a shoot almost every weekday and often on the weekends, plus all the photo editing that goes with it, things have been frenetic. I am not complaining, but I have reached the point where I am overjoyed at the opportunity to put the Nikon away and turn the Mac off for a few hours. A few years back I was a complete photo nerd, using every available moment after work to rush out and shoot whatever crossed my path, never allowing a aesthetically pleasing moment to squirm away without being shot to death.
Now however, in my old age, when one of these wonderful “in between moments” appears, I will do something cathartic and simple. Like head into the garden with a watering can and a spade and wave at my neighbours while pretending I have a horticultural plan or reason for being there. Most times after 30 minutes or so, my daughter the beautiful pale garden troll/mud diviner will come looking for me, leaving a trail of green and brown destruction in her wake. I normally use her visit as an excuse to collect up a few handfuls of what I hope are weeds that I have pulled, nod with a satisfied “right that should do it for now” look on my face, and head back towards the house for a congratulatory beer.
Below are a few of the photos that I have either shot or been editing in the last few weeks. As always.. diverse collection: fashion, stock, product, industrial, architectural and a beautiful wedding in Umhlali.
Have a great week!
