The Sea Inside Me

The sea inside me is not as dramatic as this photograph, I just liked the title - it's from a Spanish movie with Javier Bardem I saw a few years back.

On Friday I went to Gordon's Bay to help Belinda document her latest body of work, it involves bubble gum and lots of chewing and bubbles and drool and stickiness etc. All good clean filthy fun. Click on image to view bigger.

minolta 'A' 1955 - 1957

I picked up this old Minolta 'A' rangefinder at my local antique shop for the very fair sum of R110.00(us$14.50), it's in almost perfect condition except for the previous owner who left his name and a number scratched into the aluminum body. The rangefinder look fine but it's slightly out of horizontal alignment, it hopefully won't affect the focussing though. I removed a reasonably new roll of Kodak film from the film bay, and then replaced it with a new roll of Fuji 200 color. Click on an image to view bigger.

Portrait of a lady, poster of a girl.

I found this old hand colored 8x10 print of my Mother made circa the late fifties by Gibbs Studios in Stellenbosch, I guess my Mother must have been about 19 or 20 years old. I had to do about five hours of retouching to make it look pretty again because the print was never kept behind glass.
Please send me a mail if you know anything more about Gibbs Studio. Click to view bigger.
