The local telephone man

Ben Myburgh is a humble well-mannered chap. I often see him training at the local gym. He is well-built and “sticks out”.

But Ben’s photography is far more in your face.

He is forever displaying images of  lovely landscapes, interesting portraits or beautiful bodies on Facebook and other sites.

Ben, I hear, works for a telephone company and so this begs the question: Telephone man or Hot shot photographer?

The latter for sure!

Tonight I saw that he had recently won a competition on Pixoto.

His winning image is shown below.

 

It seems that if he is not shooting “gym bodies” then he is often at the seaside.

Umhlanga lighthouse I would guess

 

Westville Camera Club outing with local fire department

 

And finally to end off: in the mountains

 

Please go and visit ben myburgh photography or outdoor photo to see more of his excellent images.

The Best of India 2009

Whilst this is essentially a “travel” post, I have also included it under “photography” as the photographs below (all taken by me during my first trip to India in December 2009) were picked out by a friend of mine (Ben).

Ben, an accomplished photographer, kindly spiced up their colour and contrast on my behalf.

Visit his site right here to see some of his stunning work. I keep telling him that he should pursue his hot passion and talent on a full time basis! (yes, he is only part-time for now).

I used a Canon PowerShot S5 IS, that has since been replaced by a Canon 550D, both of which are only used on “auto”.

Here is “The Best of India 2009” in three photographs:
