And …………….me !!
It was a terrific morning spent with lovely like minded people, lots of photography chat and lots of laughter. We just had a real good time. Here is a few photographs, please remember I “don’t shoot people” so these pics was just for the memories.
RatManDude – Patrick. This is what you call CONCENTRATION !!
Jan De Beer- We can not wait to see the results of this one!!
Tugela- Jim seems like he is praying to get those camera setting correct.
Barbara – Jim’s lovely and very sweet wife
The “wildlife’ just would not behave. The did not want to sit still for us to get a photograph so Patrick was kind enough to catch one and hold it in his hand until all of us had taken a snap of it.
The Paparazzi hard at work
It seemed like this was a call Taschja just HAD to take !!
Nooooo Jim, forget it, we are NOT going up there !!
Sorry Jim the girls do not want to climb that mountain
Ooooh dam than I will just get a shot from down here
Exchanging some serious information and advice
There is no better way to enjoy lunch and a lovely Cappuccino in the company of some great photographers and lovely friends
+Special Note to JIM, BARBARA and TASCHJA +: See what happens when you leave early or walk off in another direction ……………………….you miss all the action!!
It was the first time in my life that I have EVER heard a tortoise making noises or should I say grunts! I was fascinated by this strange sound that he was making. It sounded like something between pleasure and pain LOL
