My parents both owned a number of VW Beetles when I was a child. As a young adult I inherited my mom’s 1972 VW Fun Bug Beetle. So I have love for them and always point them out to friends or family when I see one.

I was a passenger in a car and happened to have my camera handy when we passed one on the road; so I managed to capture this photograph of it.

I’ve removed all colour besides red and orange from the photograph to help create a more captivating image than the original photograph. This car was very dirty and peppered with bird droppings. I have removed most of them and by removing the blue colours from the photo I have managed to create an image that is quite appealing.

While walking past this beautiful little dam in Pecanwood Estate I saw an adult man with two young boys getting ready to fish. I found it amusing when the geese started to become curious at what these guys were doing… Maybe they thought they might get a free tidbit to eat. :-)

This is the third in a sequence of 3 photographs.

I decided to experiment with wrapping text over the contours of a face in Photoshop… This is the result of reworking a photo that I posted in September this year. I decided to have his eyes and mouth stand out more by removing the text that was over them. I also brightened up the image to give an overall brighter and lighter image.

I love it that, depending upon the mood that I want to create, I can produce different versions version of the same image.

Protesters preparing a banner for the March Against Monsanto in Johannesburg, South Africa, on the 24th of May, 2014. The petition that was signed by the protesters, which ran into several pages, was later handed to government.

Police that were standing by to monitor the situation were very pleased with the positive behavior and attitudes of everyone involved. They were very happy with the way in which everyone cooperated with all their requests and the all round friendly attitudes.

There were live music performances and there was a DJ at the event who provided the crowd with great music for hours on end.
