bridesmaids

a friend of mine is getting married this year, so i’ve been helping her find inspiration for her wedding (another great excuse to peruse wedding sites, i suppose). came across this wedding on once wed (probably my favourite wedding blog) where the bridesmaids all wore different dresses, but still adhered to a particular style (in this case, short and leggy!)

it’s probably the best example of “unique” bridesmaid dresses i’ve seen, and exactly what i would want if i ever get hitched one day. i’ve never really understood the need for the bridesmaids all to be decked out in the same colour / identical dresses, but maybe that’s just me.

that’s a good lookin’ bunch of bridesmaids, too. okay, i can’t resist featuring the rest of the wedding, as it’s just gorgeous:

i didn’t take a lot of photos this holiday because i was either eating, reading, drinking, eating, lying in the sun, snoozing, eating, drinking, walking on the beach, riding my bike, eating, napping etc etc. you know? but i did wander onto the beach one evening before sunset to take these shots. the sky really was all pink & blue! maaagical.

In Daniel Naudé’s first solo show, he presents a world that appears to be a fairy tale, or a fictional place: We see a donkey with the grace of a race horse. Next to an impossibly beautiful rainbow, a white mule almost turns into a unicorn. The hills and veld that Naudé invites us to traverse are filled with wonderful creatures, each more proud, perfect, and present than the next.

really wish i could go to Daniel’s first solo show African Scenery & Animals at Brodie/Stevenson, showing from 26 Jan-13 Feb. if you’re in Joburg, be sure to go have a looksee.

morran

hey, happy new year!

one of my resolutions is to go out and see more stuff – even if it’s just “in my own backyard”, so to speak. there’s so much i haven’t seen that’s probably only in a 10-50km radius of my house, and i don’t want to keep putting things off till i have enough money to go travelling again. why do i need to get on a plane to see stuff, right?

that being said, i think morran the dog has seen more of the world than i have.

From 1959 to 1963 my father took photos of ordinary people in Cape Town.

found these amazing vintage shots by liberty littlebasil‘s dad from the beaches & pools of cape town in the memory bane pool group over on flickr. there’s lots more – go have a look.
