the real field of dreams

Trying to shoot a quick short story before heading off on my next client shoot in Nigeria. Hopefully i'll have some time to post a few more images here as I go along. In the mean time here is a panoramic I shot of the field which was created as a Safe Hub for Khayelitsha kids to play soccer, learn, and grow, in a safe environment. You can check out some of the great work by Amandla Edufootball who made this field here:

Another Table Mountain Day

Still feeling jet lagged and tired from my recent work trip to Mexico I spent the day yesterday on Table Mountain with Jimbo and Clint trying to get some trad shots at the Jeopardy Wall. I think this is probably the most challenging climbing areas I have tried to photograph in terms of rigging (which Jimbo or Clint do for me) and also in terms of trying to get a shot that looks like anything half decent. The light is pretty much always difficult, and the wall itself is so textured its near impossible to get a sense of the line or steepness in a shot.

Here are a few selects from yesterdays attempts ... more time up at the ledge needed...
