InstaFamous

Last week we got featured on Apple’s official @instagram account! “We” actually referring to my son – I just snapped the photo. He choreographed it. It’s kind of mind bending to quantify a feature like this. The world’s largest company featuring a photo I took. On a social account they only post one photo a […]

Mataffin

Last week we celebrated the life of my grandpa on the farm where he was born and died 93 years later. Seeing the farm from high above highlights the changing landscape of Nelspruit. It’s amazing to see how the farm has shaped the city’s growth. Being on the farm brought back wonderful childhood memories of […]

Namely tyre pressure, and a pretty late start to the mission. When they say midday sun removes most dune shadows they’re telling the truth. This means for some […]

Chapman’s Peak

Side note: I’m using VSCO presets for Lightroom. Love the film color grades and flexibility you have to modify them. I’m also test driving the new Lightroom […]
