I am busy editing the Kottnitz Family shoot. When I saw this one I decided on the spot this is my photo of the day. Mom just finished changing baby and big brother observed… Just look at that little eyes…..
Yesterday when I looked out the window at my friends house in Britannia Bay I spotted these flowers growing between the leaves of the tree. It was a bit high and I had to stand on my toes to get these shots. While taking the photo’s the ants big ones decided to attack me.
I took this photo in my friends garden. I could not really edit it so I just converted from RAW to jpeg and sharpen a bit. My photo shop keeps telling me I installed it on to many computers. So I used PhotoScape to resize the photo.
On 9 November I had the pleasure to capture the Kottnitz family. Little Ewald was only two weeks old on the day of the shoot. I started editing their shoot today and came across this photo and it spoke to me. I took it with my Canon EOS 500D and my Canon EF 50mm 1: 1.8 lens. This is the first time that I use this lens in a studio shoot. Got a few out of focus photo’s but I was to close. I would love to get to know my 50mm lens better. I’ve heard that it is an awesome lens for portrait.
I took these photo’s on 16 June this year when we went to a poultry show in Worcester with my son’s class. I was so busy and only got to edit them last night. I wanted to give Lian’s teacher a DVD with all the photo’s on it before I got to busy again. I like this one it looks like the rooster has a big earring on.
Please note that the following collage can be disturbing for some.
On Sunday we visited a Dairy farm as you know. One of the cows had complications during the birth of her calf and her hind legs got paralyzed. So the farmer had to put her down. While we were learning all about the production of milk and the udder I found it very fascinating. The Farmer asked me if I would like to some photo’s of the udder after the cow was slaughtered. I just could not let an opportunity like this past me by so yesterday the farmer phoned and told my the udder is waiting for me.
I always thought that it was an big sack of milk until Sunday. Call me stupid but I think I am not the only one who thought that. It is made up of blood veins and glands. And the best of all the milk is in the blood of the cow. WOW that blew my mind completely. I still want to learn more about this interesting organ.
On top the udder with two pairs of mammary glands. Just below this is the other side of the udder. Beside this is the udder cut open with some milk. Note there are no blood in the milk.
Yesterday afternoon we visited a Dairy farm not far from where we live. I learned allot and took a few nice photo’s. I want to go back for another tour and with a list of questions. WOW never thought that cows and the process of milking can be so interesting. The best of all there is much to learn and yesterday I could only make mental notes. So I will write down what I could remember and just make double sure of the facts before I post the article.
This morning I had the pleasure to take photo’s of Daniël De Kock’s Breakfast at Rusticana Hospitality Estate. Here is Daniël protecting the youngest little guest’s ears from the loud noise of the speakers. I must say I had a different photo in mind for my photo of the day but, when I saw this scene I changed my mind. I just love this photo….
This afternoon I had a photo shoot with a two week little boy and his family. His little three year old brother got a bit bored because his little brother is getting all the attention. I caught this one of him while mommy was giving little brother milk.
Today I am posting early, Hubby is coming home and Lian got chosen for a six a side Cricket Tournament. Today I am splitting myself and my time in two. Support Lian one half of his tournament and the next few hours I need to support Armand at the cricket club. In between all the cricket my dear friend is bringing hubby home from the airport.
I just love this photo when I saw it this morning I instantly knew this is my photo of the day.
I must admit it is hard choosing a photo of the day while editing Theresa’s photo’s. Does not matter how she sit, stands, look, smile or don’t smile the photo’s comes out stunning. I still have about 170 photo’s of her photo shoot to work through so at least I can spoil you all with her beauty tomorrow again…
