Flower from Monstera Deliciosa

Flower from Monstera Deliciosa

I took a stroll through the garden this afternoon and came upon this beauty! I can’t wait for it to ripen, so we can taste the delicious fruit from this beautiful plant.

  • Update.. I thought this was a delicious monster but four hours later it look like the second image!
  • I’ve read up a bit on it and if I understand it correctly, the second image is now the “flower” that needs to be fertilised.
  • If you know more about this, please drop me a line. 😉
  • Enjoy the photos!

I finally got some time to test my new Softbox!!

80 x 80cm 32 inch Quick Setup Easy Open Softbox for Bowens Type Strobe Light

The large size of the softbox makes for realy soft light that wraps beautifully around the subject. It folds up in seconds (like a windscreen reflector)  and is really a convenient size when tucked away in its pouch.

Marida Smit was the model that helped me on the shoot, and I must say I am very happy with the results. Here are a couple of my favourites from the day:

 

Hillbrow Shoot

Hillbrow Shoot

I recently had the opportunity to work on set for the new movie Dora’s Peace made by Kosta Kalarytis.

Unfortunately I can’t show you the stills I took, as the movie hasn’t been released yet. While I was on set waiting for scene changes, I had some time to do a bit of street photography and I must say it was amazing to be in Hillbrow and be able to see how much it has changed from my rears as a teen when we used to go clubbing there.

It certainly isn’t a safe environment, but the amazing thing is to see how ordinary people, very poor people, live and survive under very trying conditions where crime, drugs and prostitution is so rife.

Occasions like these really ground me and make me thankful for all the small an large blessings in my life.

Here are a couple of shots I took during my time on set.
I hope you enjoy!
