“Motivate by your actions not your mouth” ~ Andrew Harvard
It was blowing gale force in Durban this morning an hour before sunrise. The weather looks to clear late this afternoon.
I decided to stay indoors and play with this photo.

We enjoyed our 30 year reunion this weekend and what a better way to kick it off than with a sunrise shoot with gentleman David Oppermann.
I took him to Moyo Ushaka so we could have coffee afterwards at The Coffee Guys – South Beach; a Durban photographer’s tradition of sorts started byPrakash Bhikha and Dave Nisbet I guess.
David and I later went to Glenwood High School to watch the Green Machine beat Kearsney at rugby. It was also great that our ex-headmaster (MrMichael Maher) joined us for some of the fun.
I’ve seen people groan about Moyo Pier as being the most shot pier. Yes, it is, but different days always seem to deliver a different beauty. We were blessed on this morning again.

“A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.” ~ John Grogan, Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World’s Worst Dog
This is my favourite photo of yesterday’s photo shoot with Prakash, David and Lee-Ann. There are another 140 photos but this particular one shows what most the others don’t: a bond of unconditional love. Straight after I took it I showed Prakash and grinned; my shoot was sealed.
Today most of the IG groups are meeting in and around Durban today. After last night’s Glenwood 1986 Reunion – 30 Years I’m not feeling photography fit.
