Tygerberg Photographic Society - August 2014


The August set subject was "slow shutter speed", and this was my entry for the month. The judge seemed to like the shot, but marked it down as he found the red branding on the chopsticks packet distracting. I think it helps balance out the bottom section of the photo, so still obviously have lots to learn.

My other two images entered into the "Open" category can be seen by clicking on the "TPS Entries" link on the menu bar.

Triple trouble

The three ladies who terrorized Cape Town this past week. On the left, niece Lee-Ann, her Mom and Jacqui's sister Lesley in the middle, and Jacqui on the right. So innocent-looking - butter wouldn't melt in their mouths!

A great time was had by all, and everyone is now back home safe and sound. Can't believe just how peaceful this place is right now!

My thanks for all the posing - I really enjoyed the photo sessions. Till next time...

Saturday evening gave us the mist













And we ended off the Birthday with this prelude to a beautiful hazy sunset






My sincerest thanks to all of you who have made this a very special birthday - especially my wife Jacqui, plus all the friends and family members who phoned or sent Facebook and text messages. You are all awesome!
