I tend to get tired of the colour of my bike quickly. She was overdue for a makeover and this is what happened. It is one of those paintjobs where I can't decide if I love it or hate it, we'll see how long it lasts.

This weekend was a long weekend mixed with much emotion. My computer crashed on Saturday morning so I did this update using the laptop. I didn't realise how much I used my computer until it was gone, Photoshop is sorely missed, I made the borders and conversions on these pics using http://www.picnik.com/, a fun and entertaining site.
Last night was an Indie explosion. Howard Roark and New Loud Rockets Unleashed some mighty good tunes on an appreciative crowd at the Waiting Room. Thanks to the guy who picked up my flash and batteries off the floor after it fell (from very high) off the speaker.
Check it Out:

My wallet was stolen out of my room the other day with all my cards. I got the cards replaced for free but was shocked to see how much a wallet costs. I spent about 20-30 min. and made one out of duct tape and some Speak the Silence stickers (I'm a tweaker). It's dialled - "If it's free it's for me". I just watched a segment on Identity theft on Carte Blanche hence the un-needed paranoid blur.

A few friends and I went riding in Paarl. It was super hot especially considering all the cold weather we have been having lately. Not too much riding went down, but there are some really awesome buildings in Paarl and radical Skies, I happen to like both.
Clemi Pulled this perfectly. He literally did the entire rail My friend Adriaan Inherited a rad TLR Medium Format Camera recently. I know this has been done a million times before but I always wanted to try it. Jacques hurt himself before he stuck this clean, he came really close though

Here are a few pics of a 4x4 trip my dad and I did last year up to Botswana and Zambia. It was amazing, everything from the remote locations to wildlife to the local people. The people in Botswana and Zambia are extremely friendly despite having very little. A trip up there really humbles one, and makes you grateful for what you have.
This picture is of a guy called 'Salt'. He's a legend and really fits the phrase "Salt of the earth".
I woke up early the one morning to be greeted by this sunrise. It was a little nerve-racking being all alone while taking this with wild animals around.
The Road in Moremi. From the Gate of the park to camp was 42Km, it took us just under 8hours to get there.
I took this shot at UCT last night. It is nothing really, I was just helping a friend with a project. It was a 30 second exposure and came out pretty clean considering the D200 is supposed to be noisy during long exposures.
Not too much I can really say about this pic other than I really like my fisheye lens and cows are weird animals.
I am a sucker for the sun behind the clouds. The mirror shot was taken while I was driving because I was in a rush to get home and there was nowhere to pull the car over. I am pretty happy how it turned out anyway.
Here are some pics I took the other day in the Canola Fields. It was pretty much my first time taking photo's of people. I brought some friends along, Kristen for the beauty and Phil for ... well he brought some Frank along. The whole thing was super relaxed and all the shots were spontaneous, the day was fun and can pretty much be summed up in this first pic.
They say you can judge a person by the friends they keep.
This pic doesn't say much for me.

I worked on this old shot today, it was my first time stitching a sequence together. I am not generally a big fan of sequence shots, but every now and again they can look alright. Look at my dumb luck on this shot, everything timed where it should be, Lucky days. Also notice the Moiré Phenomenon, weird.
