earthSTILLSWords and Images
I am a phorty-something, phemale, phlogger, I photograph and I blog, from the tip of Africa, somewhere near Cape Town to be more precise.
I dream about taking photographs, sometimes even during the day, when I earn my living doing very concrete tasks such as managing IT, writing specifications, manuals, procedures, planning projects, reviewing progress, reporting to management, a very mundane life…
Sometimes I am fortunate enough to have my dreams and reality meet arbitrarily, when I get asked to take a picture of something we have designed in our labs and made into a product:
But mostly, I am happy and extremely grateful to be gainfully employed, which allows me to follow my hobby passionately. When I am sad, I find solace in places that I carry with me as images, moments that gave me pleasure that I can revisit. I love music, but above all favour when words, images and music collide to create a moment of totality where your mind, spirit and senses shout that you are alive. It feels a little like this in my imagination:
My favourite quote, which is always in my mind, is from the renowned photographer Ansel Adams:
‘When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.’
