Good morning Ballito!

“What is this self inside us, this silent observer, Severe and speechless critic, who can terrorize us, And urge us on to futile activity, And in the end, judge us still more severely, For the errors into which his own reproaches drove us?” – T. S. Eliot

Prakash Bhikha and I hit the shores of Ballito Beach this morning. Afterwards it was The Coffee Guys – South Beach for the 2nd fix of the morning.

This will probably turn out to be one of my favourite shots from yesterday’s shoot.

The little crab (bottom / middle) and I shot for a while until got blown away by a blinder (doubt it – probably scurried away to duck the big wave that wet my lens and caused me to use the healing brush for 20 min in PP).

Canon 6D, 0.4 sec, ISO 100, F16. RAW, tripod.

Good Morning Durban!

I’m not a black & white photographer; probably because I think I s..k at it. I’m also not into blues (the colour as well) and love hot oranges and pinks.

However, this photo looked bland to me in colour so I gave it a B&W smack! I prefer it to the colour version that has been tossed.

Maybe it’s not the B&W I like but more so the now plain non-colourful story that the photo now tells me. It’s a human like all of us making good use of the early morning to go and exercise, and have fun for free. She also has a look of strong intent.

“Your time to POP will soon come.

Did you know that Popcorns are normally fried in the same pot, in the same oil, at the same time and under the same heat conditions, but they do not all pop at the same time.

When flood comes, fish eat ants and when the flood recedes, ants eat fish.

Only time matters.

To make soap, oil is required. But to clean oil, soap is required. This is the irony of life. Everybody needs somebody at one point in time.

Do not despise or treat anyone with scorn. There is a time for everything and for everyone. Keep trusting and waiting on God.

Your time to POP will soon come” – Unknown (via Derek Gravett on Facebook)
