Rowboat Ripples

Another Restoration. Pretty straight forward:  Fix all the visible cracks and rips as well as the faded colour. This photograph was taken in 1940 or 1941 in Pennsylvania. It shows a happy moment in time, seems to have no cares, but only smiles and summer joy. To fix the visible cracks and rips was easy, […]

Cute Visitors

With many of the native flowers now in bloom, we get a lot of native birds visiting our garden. One of my favourites are these ones: Rainbow Lorikeets. Cutest little parrots. Watching them from the window they munch away on the little seeds and climb up and down all over the trees and bushes. They […]

Subtle Tulips

It was one of those things: I was getting ready for a shoot and had my head full of the right things to say and do and there they were, in a vase, on a big glass table. Many times I am drawn to strong colours, I LOVE colours, and I love strong contrasts. But […]

Dad’s Precious

A lovely shot of a newborn in Dad’s arms. For Dad’s birthday this already special photo  was meant to be printed on canvas and hung in the living-room amongst several other photos that were all black and white. So this photo of Dad’s precious had to be turned black and white as well. I felt […]
