[Photo essay] Running in London

I didn’t have time for sightseeing but I needed to run. So, running in London became the way I saw the city during the week I was there on business. Armed with my iPhone in my trusty running belt and a bottle of water, I hit the road at 6am to get some training done before my meetings started. London in the early morning is just magic. It was light already, and the city hadn’t really woken up yet. It was quiet and peaceful… which is so unlike London. There was rain every day, but in the early morning...

[Photo essay] Wandering the streets of London

I’ve been in London over the last week on business. My days have been filled with meetings, and I lugged my heavy DSLR around with me wherever we went. I made the time to take photos while wandering the streets of London. Next time I go, I’m taking one small wide angle lens with me instead of the 24-70mm lens that I used this time. I really felt the weight of the camera and lens this week. We made the most of the trip though. We walked to lunch spots or had a spare moment in the evenings, we...

One night in the Karoo

We always have one night in the Karoo on the way home from Cape Town. Our favourite place to stay on the way home is Kuilfontein Stable Cottages outside Colesberg.

They are self-catering cottages on the same farm as the main lodge. The cottages are amazing and just perfect for the four of us. Our friends stayed in the cottage next to ours this time, and...

A few favourite photos from Cape Town

This is going to be my last post about our trip. I’m going to share my favourite photos from Cape Town. I could probably stretch this over a few posts, but I’m getting bored and I’m sure you are too. I need to archive the folders ready for photobooks and a few prints. I’ve decided to share mostly sea- and landscapes rather than photos of my family (those are on Facebook). I hope you like them… one day I’ll get my butt into gear and set up an online shop for prints. Blouberg beaches We stayed in an AirBNB...

Lunch at The Tasting Room at Stanford Hills

When we travel to Cape Town, we always drive to Hermanus for a day to see my aunt and uncle. This time, we had lunch at The Tasting Room at Stanford Hills Estate just outside Stanford. The Tasting Room is awesome! The views are magnificent from the restaurant. We loved that it was right at the vineyard and that you could see the whole valley. The only pity was the dam was being fixed when we were there, so it didn’t look as amazing as the photos on the website. Also, probably because of the drought! There was a...
