A couple of years ago, while we were road-tripping through South Africa for 6 weeks… we stayed, for a season, at a gorgeous old house near Klaarstroom in the Karoo.   One morning, as Joah was sitting on the stoep, enjoying his morning toast… I noticed how crisp the shadows were on the wall behind him.  So, I quickly grabbed my camera and took these shots…

Random Factoids...

  • I’ve always enjoyed taking photos… but like everything else I do, I don’t have any formal training.  I just photograph what interests me… or things I find beautiful.
  • I don’t like getting hot and I don’t like being in the sun and I always thought I’d hate the Karoo (because it’s arid and it gets very hot in summer) – but staying in the Klein Karoo in early Spring was a delight.  It made me re-think all my previous assumptions about that part of the world.
