i have had an aversion to Instagram lately, only because i find it hard that it is the go-to for everything now a days. where did you find that? oh i saw it on Instagram. did you hear about this amazing new place? yeah I saw it on Instagram. i…

please enjoy these very serene mountainous landscapes by Taiwanese artist Chih-Hung Kuo. you can read more about his work here – he is represented by Aki Gallery in Taipei.

my friend Lar and her husband Craig moved from Cape Town to the north coast of KZN a few years back (you may remember that i posted about her beautiful ballet photography, and i also designed her website many moons ago!) they bought a plot of land a few minutes…
