I’ve never been a big bird watcher, but sitting in a wild garden watching an assortment of birds feeding off the local fynbos is quite therapeutic. And wildly colourful.
We spent last weekend in Hermanus – a seaside town our family love to escape to as often as possible. It’s also the place we got married, and a town known for it’s incredible whale sightings.
I rented a Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM lens and enjoyed spending a few hours one evening trying to capture the coastline and starry skies. Hermanus is often misty and there was a lot of cloud cover for the most part of the weekend.

When on site we often have kids wanting to help the builders, but we’ve never seen a kid with quite the same perseverance levels as Max. He’s been doing this for hours now!
Said the foreman about our 4 year old.
Yesterday I took Max to see “Finding Dory“. It was his first cinema experience – a day I’d looked forward to for a long time. Besides spilling popcorn everywhere it went without any incidents and we both enjoyed the much anticipated Pixar sequel.
Before the movie Pixar premiered a 6 minute short film called “Piper”. A short that was three years in the making about a baby sandpiper braving the waters for the first time.
Piper has to be the best animated short film I’ve ever seen. The meticulous & groundbreaking animated detail in the feathers, sand and water make it feel more like a David Attenborough wildlife documentary.
There’s a great read on Vanity Fair about the making of the short and a teaser trailer below.
