my brother sent this to me – he explores google earth as much as i explore google street maps. it’s the most amazing scene of people in a market in tanzania looking up at whatever it was that took this aerial photograph (airplane? helicopter?) … the shot is so detailed and colourful and so very african. i love it. here is the google earth placemark if you want to have a look yourself (if you don’t have google earth on your computer – get it!)
the colour, the styling, the room – just right. photography by phil sharp.

it’s going to be spring soon! though our tricksy south african weather has been making everyone assume it’s spring already (this has probably been the mildest and most glorious winter in recent memory.) i bet we’re in for one more crazy cold front before the proper hot weather hits us though – remember when it snowed in august?

i’m sure you’ve seen pics of the rad twenties fashions at the governor’s island jazz age lawn party on the sartorialist and many other style blogs over…
i’ve been meaning to tackle this topic for a while, as the nick dewolf photo archive is the largest collection of vintage photos i’ve ever seen (so far closing in on almost 40,000 photos) – so i’m finding it pretty difficult trying to pick my favs to show you! the story behind the archive is presented by steve lundeen, who is nick de wolf’s son-in-law:
as a photographer, nick was ever ready and ever present, leaving behind many thousands of pre-digital images, dating well back into the 1950’s. he carried a camera with him at all times, usually a family of cameras. if you knew nick, you got used to this…eventually, he’d be pointing his camera at you. i am working to post nick’s images in their original sets as they are scanned and processed, somewhere in the order of 20-50 images a day. for those wondering “how much longer can this possibly go on?”, i can only answer, “the mountain is high, the journey is long.”
what an absolutely great story, it makes you realise that you simply have to carry your camera with you all the time – imagine the pictures you’d be able to show your kids one day. also this guy was shooting film, which is a thousand times more admin than our handy digital cameras… here are some of my favourites (i love the hippies)
