What to do with a few “low quality” Blackberry photos of my scenic work adventures around Western Cape during early 2011…
Well, don’t be shy and give it a try, as a very good friend of mine always said.
Maybe something will grab your attention and you will soon be booking a flight to South Africa,
It was an intense time: the work I had to do was in the spotlight at a top level and I was away from home nearly every week.
I would return home on weekends and usually fly out on a Monday morning at 06:00 (this is the flight where you fall asleep shortly after take-off and awake to find that you have been (embarrassingly) snoring and dribbling out of your mouth!
The propensity of change was high: one minute returning home, the next minute flying or driving to a completely different area.
Different beds, sometimes every night. New challenges all the time.
The “hardship” had a bonus flip-side.
I got to see many different and beautiful areas of my country, that I most likely would not have seen in this lifetime had I not been employed in the position I was.
I met many different and wonderful people, and somehow got back in touch with some very important things I had “forgotten” about myself.
This was all at someone else’s expenses (although I certainly earned my keep and more).
I managed to snap away with my Blackberry (no space or time for any other camera) every so often, and below are some of my photos (the panoramic photos are from a friend).

Lovely photos, Andy. I like the way you’ve presented them, too. Very eye-catching.
Thank you Lizzie. I tend to put them in that frame when I think the quality is a bit off
Those are amazing!
Thanks Lynn – all with a little Blackberry
I want your Blackberry. Or maybe your eye for composition and light …
Next time Andrew, if you can make some time, you’re welcome to stay over and we’ll show you some unknown hots spots!!!
Limited with work but hopefully when my fiancee and I visit
