We all understand the power of positive influence. The kid in the front posed like this instantly. I was slightly troubled to say the least.

This is the beginning of a series which I have subconsciousely been photographing for years anywhere. A scene that is so much part of us that we don't notice it. I noticed these easily after returning from London, but these days it is harder.

This lady was laden on Umhlanga beach.

Nibs van der Spuy

I love music. I play a little and listen a lot. I love experiencing the process of making an album so I was buzzing when my good friend Nibs van der Spuy asked me to listen to the makings of what is now the album 'House Across the River'.

Nibs lives in a beautiful old home, the kind that kids (big ones like me too) love! It has swords and armour and paintings. It has an old world feel which I love.

We tried various locations in the house, using all manner of lights and tricks, but when we happened upon the main bedrooms window we hatched a plan. No extra lights just good old fashioned available light. The picture looked and felt so right when I made it.

The album has been playing constantly in my car for the past week, absolutely loving it! For more about Nibs please check out
