Photo 46 of 356 of the 2015 Collection
Randomly chosen by editor extraordinaire Axel Bührmann from my Blue collection.

Short of telling you it was manufactured in the United States of America and it was shot in the Franschhoek Motor Museum, I can’t say much.
Except, I would not mind driving around with it on a leisurely Sunday by the beach…

Randomly chosen by fellow photography enthusiast Cliff Featherstone from my Blue collection.

Yet another hangar at the Franschhoek Motor Museum, each time I look at these photos I get nostalgic.
Then again it might just be the music.

Randomly chosen by marketing wizard Roxanne Coetzer from my Blue collection.

I published a shot of the Deneysville motorbike museum before, here is a better view of the “back” part of the informal museum.

Photo 24 of 356 of the 2015 Collection
Randomly chosen by a great travel photographer Bianca Preusker from my Blue collection.

Shameless plug: Bianca also works as a tourist guide and can often be seen gallivanting with Cape Town Photo Tours around the Mother City, not only is she not half bad with a camera but she ain’t half bad as a guide either. If you are in Cape Town and wanting to do some alternative touring with a guide, she is your gal. They will even loan you a camera should you fail to have one with you (true story).
Disclaimer: I have no ties with Cape Town Photo Tours except that Bianca took Geraldine and I for a great day out.

This photo however was not shot on that day and is yet another part of the Franschhoek Motor Museum’s collection, would not mind the 3rd one on the right.

Huguenot Monument

Huguenot Monument

Photo 22 of 356 of the 2015 Collection
Randomly chosen by old friend and now another UK connection Elaine Young from my Blue collection.

You can find more information about the Huguenot Monument in Franschhoek here.
Speaking of the Huguenots, did you know that, to my knowledge, there are only 2 languages in the world with a double negative?
French and Afrikaans, they will say (literally): Must not do it not! for example.
 
On a post processing note, Google NIK Sharpener Pro is incredible.
