Curiosita

There is one gift that distinguishes geniuses from others… We all have it, but very few use it. It’s the gift of natural curiosity, the willingness to learn, to experiment, and to keep on pushing the limits, because we know there is more to learn.As my son looked through a window, I hoped that he would treasure this gift, finding the windows of hope always opening as he keeps on living the quest for truth, love and happiness. Godspeed, dear traveller. Feel free to

True Teachers

Let’s learn from the kids. They live in the moment… Happy or sad. They know the present is the greatest gift we have… That’s why it’s called the present… Life for kids is full of color, sepia (the past) brings great memories and the future is filled with dreams… Let’s live, dream and remember things that make us better!

When the wheels come off

I was driving through a small town called Koffiefontein. These guys were having fun, playing with their self-made push-and-go car. I took some pictures and went on a drive through the town. On my way back, I found only this guy… Yes. The wheels had come off. Suddenly he was on his own. Is that not true sometimes? When the wheels come off in the drama of life, we suddenly find ourselves feeling alone? Well, take note that it’s mostly a “feeling” and not

Hands

Two years ago my son’s pre-primary school had a Visitor’s day for grandparents. As I was taking pictures, I was drawn to the beauty of hands. Old hands and young hands were working together, painting together and being together. It reminded me… My grandma used to have hands filled with blue veins, which she used to knit and create. My mom had gentle, comforting hands. My dad had strong healing hands. When I think of these hands,

School

So it was the first day of school. And yes, there were fears, uncertainty and a fair bit of worrying. Still, they were having fun. And I thought about my life and work. I often have fears, uncertainties and worries. It doesn’t matter…. As long as I have fun. Have fun today. Every day is the first day in the school of life. Every day is the first day of the rest of your life. ( I think I heard it in a movie – but it’s only

Great Moments

A brother and sister. She tickled him. He was tired. It was late on a hot December afternoon. He could not walk properly, but she did not mind. When necessary, she carried him. The words of the song came to mind: He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother. And then it happened, I had captured the moment above, but my finger was still on the shutter, and I am glad, because the next moment they fell over… Is is not

Make your dreams soar

Where did the time go? Well, that’s probably one of the questions one also asks at your eightieth birthday. For me, suddenly there is a new year and the previous post was a month ago. Does not feel like it! Hopefully this year there will be more opportunities to share some moments. Like we had at christmas. Grandma bought my kids kites and there was a photo opportunity! I really battled to find good pictures. All the time I knew the pictures were

Playful. Reassuring.

He was playing in front of the camera. Jumping up and down, smiling and friendly. His sister was shy. Eventually she decided that it had to be fun. He just seemed to be so happy. So she joined. His hand was comforting, holding hers to reassure her. I learnt from him that if one really enjoys what one does, others cannot stay away too long. People want to share in the fun that passionate people have. I think it’s called

Enjoy hurdles

This weekend we had a photowalk in Paul Roux. The weather seemed to be heading for “rotten”, but we had to push through. What a privilege when the light eventually appeared. Some clouds acted as natural diffusers and, in general, we had a great time taking pictures of the kids who walked along. The great thing about the weather was that those who seriously wanted to be there, were there – is it not true that sometimes we have hurdles for one

Excuses.

The light was harsh. It wasn’t the perfect time for taking pictures. I could have said no. There were “thousands” of legitimate reasons not to do it. As I walked back to the car after the session, I was concerned about what the results would be. And then, when I opened the pictures on the computer, I found that sometimes we have to ignore the excuses and just do what we want to do – There will always

About War

A few years ago, I was assigned to do an article on the power of history. As I walked through a small cemetery with my family, my son kept on asking questions about war and the reason why people kill each other. This weekend, while watching the movie, Life is Beautiful again, my son asked the same question. And again, I had no answer. Wherever I travel with my camera, I want to celebrate life. And so often

So often kids play “imaginative” games.  My son sometimes believes he is a T-Rex.  He goes into the world of millions of years ago.  He is in another world.  Because he uses the biggest power available to human beings:   Imagination. As a photographer, a teacher, a trainer and a dad, I am often astounded by the power of imagination.  Kids use it so much more than adults.  Maybe we (adults) need to take some time between
