Becuase of the nature of his work, it is temporary. Fleeting. He captures it on photographs and that is all that remains.

In her book Sonja explores the idea that people perceive things differently, also images. And even ourselves, we perceive a memory diffrently today then what we did a year ago. Memories become blurred, an overlapping of images and thoughts in our mind. Every page is beautiful.

I've always loved Design Team's range of fabrics, since seeing it at an expo in Johannesburg about 6 years ago. They've been able to do a range of fabrics showcasing local content, fauna and flora, icons and just damn great design without being kitsch. Bloody marvelous.
Again, I've got bad recollection of who was responsible for this stand, but it was out one of the best on show. Orchids hanging out of silver cocoon-like 'vases', these were simply amazing. The wooden 'latte', painted white, meticulously put together to form a canopy.
I wish I could take the whole thing home!
I feel obliged to tell you more about myself, but that will come in time.
You remember primary school, the first day. You've got all your stationary, and the most coveted is the 24 pack of Colleen colour pencils! All of them sharp, perfectly long length and in order! I loved it.
To this day I love sharp pencils. I have a 'bouquet' on top of my bookcase. Actually just a bunch of colour pencils, never been used, sitting in a little ceramic pot. It inspires me, I think of the possibilities! New ideas, sketches, drawings, shopping lists....
So to start my blogging days, just a little line drawing of some iconic buildings in my favourite area in my favourite home town... (not Cape Town for those who don't know!)
