Since it's December now and summer is here I thought it would be a good time to put out these images I shot during the cold, rainy, windy winter here in cape Town.

I love shooting when it's misty outside, the mist can really emphasize your subject and eliminate a busy and unwanted background. I like the minimal feel you get shooting in the mist.  

These images top and bottom are just some random portraits shot of Andrew playing on the mountain, exploring the the cold, misty landscape.

Above is a couple of images shot in my apartment in Vredehoek and below is the iconic Lions Head, part of Table Mountain National Park. I have been up that road so many times, but it's still a magical place with an amazing view of the city and the mountain.

Ending this little series with a warm, steamy bathroom shot. Probably the best way to end a day outside in a cold and stormy Cape Town.

Expired Film / 001

On a recent road trip I was given an old, expired and rusty film. I obviously loaded the film in my camera and hoped for the best. This series is some of my favorite images from that film. 

I love the weird spots and imperfections. I mean you won't shoot a paid job on it, but just for fun they came out pretty nice. Again most of the images shot in and around Cape Town. 

The image below of the pelicans in flight is one of my favorites, almost feels like you are under water, if you use a bit of imagination. 

I really had no expectations for this roll of film, when I got the film back from the lab it had bits of emulsion missing and they didn't even want to cut the roll for me as you couldn't see where one frame stops and the next one starts.  

The first couple of images on the roll was effected the most as they where on the outside and I guess closest to the rust, etc. The film was more than 10 years old when I got it and I am pretty sure it was not kept in a cool dry place. 

I would recommend all film addicts to at least once shoot an old and expired roll of film. I have shot a couple over the years and most of them came out perfectly fine, but then when you get that weird one it really sparks a bit of creativity and you know those images can never be copied even if you tried. Truly unique. 

The image below was the first shot of the roll, I have absolutely no idea what I photographed, it doesn't really matter as it anyway got replaced with some amazing and random textures. Maybe nature just wanted to take a shot on my film and this is what happened.

Cape Town, ZA / 002

These images where shot in and around Cape Town on those perfect, calm summer nights. The ones you dream of when it's raining sideways and you have more than one blanket on your bed.

The days are longer and the whole of Cape Town comes alive and wants to spend as much time as possible outside. Soaking up all the vitamin D our bodies are deprived of over the last couple of months. 

Chilling with some friends watching the sunset and enjoying a sun downer or two after a good surf, really one of my favorite things to do. It makes you realize and appreciate the bautiful country and city we live in and so often take for granted.

Also really nice to know someone that knows someone that's got an airplane, it might be small but, it does the job. What an experience flying over the cape peninsula when the sun is setting and the sky turns all shades of orange and red. One little adventure I can reccomend to anyone visiting Cape Town.

The perfect end to the perfect day with a burger and a couple of beers at Lefty's.

So this series of images is what happens when you go to watch friends play a gig in a under lit venue and you still have a 200 ISO film in your camera. I still kind of liked the images and wanted to share them.

Cape Town, ZA / 001

Living in Cape Town sure has it's up's and down's, whether it's work or weather, nothing fun about the howling South Easter in the summer or the sideways rain in the winter but, when you have days like these it is all worth it. 100%.

Soaking up the sun on any of the beautiful beaches surrounding Cape Town not even to mention the huge variety of waves the coastline has to offer really makes for some awesome adventures. Nothing beats salty hair and sandy feet and just spending time with friends. 

I really liked the image below of the beach umbrella, the simplicity of the image just worked and on a cold, rainy winters day reminds me of the seasons to come. Going from shades of gray to more shades of blue than you can wish for.

If you feel like venturing a bit further out of Cape Town the beaches only gets better. With a car packed with friends and whatever you feel like doing on the beach you can easily change a sunny Saturday into a mini road trip. Within a 150 km radius of Cape Town the opportunities are endless. 

The coastline from Hermanus to Cape Town will always be special to me, growing up here has been an amazing privilege and I am really lucky to have friends and family that love spending time outdoors and explore the coastline with me.

Whether it's drinking sun downers and watching the sunset or chasing waves around the coast, this can easily be taken for granted, that it something I never want to do. We live in an amazing part of the world and we should always respect and enjoy what we have right here.
