Pictures in bulk by awefaul

Currently unavailable for purchase


You don’t have to wait long at these statues of South Africa’s Nobel prize laureates before some tourist will have their picture taken with them. But, although I pass that way almost every time I go to the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, I am somewhat embarrassed by the art work. The sculptor clearly missed the lecture of Art 101 about proportions. (Nelson Mandela’s head isn’t really that big) What is even more disturbing is that there wasn’t a public outcry when they were unveiled.
This particular group handled the process like a well rehearsed dance. All the children (students?) gave their cameras to the two photographers and posed patiently while they fumbled with every different make and model.

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.
