Take a walk on the wild side. (Carnivores only)

Take a walk on the wild side of cuisine. We have been shooting, I mean photographing, venison for the special winters edition of Landbouweekblad’s Boerekos. Normally not something that is readily available in the summer months, but Checkers South Africa has a variety of Springbok cuts. So, today’s specials are Springbok Pinotage burger with rocket, blue cheese and caramelised onions on the left. On…

It brought back memories of being on my family’s farm as a child, as well as “backyard farming” growing carrots and beans. Today however, my farming is limited to a…

Street Art

Walking is good for you, so they say, so I took a walk carrying my camera. As I walked I came across these beautiful works of art on the walls facing the street. I’ll be doing some more walking to see what I can find.

My Learning Curve

It is said that you can not fill a cup that is already full. To be filled again, it must first be emptied. This is where I’ll be emptying my cup and giving back what I have learnt. So here a new journey starts. Life is a journey, enjoy the ride. NL.
