Somewhere, 12895 km from Beijing by 

A tourist, 12895 km from Beijing, 6135 km from Rio de Janeiro and 92 km from Cape Town smile for a photographer. They were probably there to see the whales before the end of the season. I went to Hermanus to watch the whale watchers and enjoy the other sights also. Just behind them is the ruins of a burnt out guest house, now for sale, so judging from the photographer’s angle the caption to their picture might be “At a burnt house somewhere in Africa”.

Digital photography is doing for photography what the piano did for keyboard music. You can still play music composed for the harpsichord on the piano but not the other way around.
