Check out that FJ
After the 964 Porsches, these have by far my favorite silhouettes.
When was the last time you found a quiet place to disconnect? The kind of quiet that puts you in a daze and time seems to stand still. Gah! I feel like I caught this guy in the middle of one of those perfectly peaceful moments. I love witnessing people create little segments of quiet in their daily lives. I came across this surfer in his Land Cruiser atop a cliff in Hartland Quay. He was lost in his own world looking for the perfect set of waves. When the waves started to pick up, he drove his FJ down the side of this cliff, changed into his wetsuit and ran down to the water with his board.
I had exactly 3 frames left on a roll and here are all of them.
Also, these first two photos are available for print if you click on the shopping cart icon to the right of the images.
This was the vantage point from atop the cliff.
I am always looking to capture fleeting interactions between people—the little things we all notice, but forget almost just as quickly. Those passing moments make up most of our lives. This is why photographs are so exciting; they keep us connected to our surroundings, past and present.
This photo captures one of those moments. I was walking around Chicago and saw three friends enjoying cigars. I reached into my bag and got my film camera ready for a shot. As I was focusing the lens, the guy in the middle threw me a peace sign. I took the shot, put my camera in my bag, waved back, and continued on. I didn’t realize the guy was Steve Harvey until the scans came back from the film lab. In fact, if I had known it was him, I probably would have left him alone and given him a break from being in the public eye.
Steve Harvey, if this post somehow makes it across your screen, thanks for being so cool about letting me take your photo, and sorry for interrupting your cigar break. It looks like you had great company.
This is a glimpse of Cape Town’s Skyline.
I woke up around sunrise and went for the longest walk around Cape Town. These are photos from an epic day-long walk around the city. I hope I was able to capture a glimpse into the beautiful of such a heavenly city. Cape Town is the perfect mixture of natural beauty and an urban landscape. Oh and there is always a sea breeze off the Atlantic. As I look back at this trip, I have spent long periods staring at the photo above. Every time I see that panorama, it takes me back to this walk.
As I was walking down the street, I saw some people out by the water. One of the guys out there was swimming in the water and his blue trunks juxtaposed against the water drew me in.
Isn’t this the most perfect way to start your day: “I will be right back, I am going to go for a quick swim in the Atlantic Ocean.”
You know how I like lines.
… and a few more.
I have a bunch of pictures of these little German cars. I couldn’t get enough of them.
After I got done taking this photo I realized that there were a bunch of people waiting on the sidewalk for me to take my picture.
A street of color
This is one of the first photos I took when I got to Bo Kaap. I was seriously overwhelmed by the color. Wouldn’t you love to wake up and walk out to a street like this?
Cape Town has so much to offer but the idea of visiting a the Muslim quarter with every house painted in a different pastel color was the most intriguing. Bo Kaap
was the first place I visited when I got to the city.
This might be my favorite photo from the set. I need to come up with a hashtag for photos that are worthy of hanging on my wall.
People leaving their homes to head to work early in the morning.
