i was interested in photographing a wreck of a couple of years in Blouberg – line of sight from cape town. light was interesting, but not that interesting and a bank of clouds hid table mountain. so i missed the opportunity to use this landmark as a backdrop.
i have never found a surfer strolling to the sea, they are always running, or at least walking at pace, looking with expectation towards the sea – as if not to miss the perfect wave…
only to drag themselves out, catch breath, turn around and to look for what was missed.
probably the same can be said for a reasonably new phenomenon – for me at least. stand up paddle boards provided a hint of interest against the rigidness of the wreck – the blurry bit in the photograph of the wreck – shutter was open for 20 seconds to smooth the sea.
met a couple enjoying an early morning stroll with their dog. with frisbee in hand the owner delighted the dog with a game of fetch. when the playing was done, it was clear why a dog is called ‘man’s best friend’
