Did you Notice my brand swanky new website? That’s why I’ve been off line and silent for a while. Been busy updating. Not because I really wanted to but because of the need to get mobile friendly. My old site was … well … old! … and tired! … and not at all mobile friendly … and yep … now it fits on your smart phone and you can actually read it there … try it sometime.
I did like the artsy fartsy grungy look of the old one but am much happier now with the new cleaner slicker look. The downside of this update though, is that two long years worth of blog post archive has disappeared into the digital nether world … lost and gone forever never to be read again … but hey! … nothing like starting fresh from scratch I guess. Archive gone but life goes on!
Anyway … Be that all as it may … on to the important stuff …
some recent and current work:–
“The Loxton Road”
This is arguably one of the most scenic bits of road In the country (if you enjoy remote that is!). Take the NI from Beaufort West in the Three sisters direction. Drive about five K’s and turn left onto the R381 towards the Nuweveld mountains … over the incredible Molteno pass and on towards Loxton. Stunning … especially the Molteno pass … Supposedly one of the oldest in our country built by Thomas Bain around 1881!
“A Remote Place”
Another great drive is the R398 in the Eastern cape. Its a gravel road of a hundred and something K’s joining Middleberg and Richmond. It takes you through some pretty remote and lonely areas and is somewhat gnarly in places … but really beautiful … especially in ‘golden hour’ time.
“The House On The Hill”
Not really a hill … Are there really real hills around Middleberg? … just elevated ‘above the road’ I guess. This one available at Ecclectica Gallery in Cape Town
