South African lady, maybe of interest to some.

Thanks for the link, Riaan.

She had a good eye, which makes me regret she didn't do her shots on a Rollei tlr. The "dumb" effects can always be done post, but at least the good negs are available for different uses that might arise later on.

But then I learned that the hard way, and stopped using the cellphone because of it. Yes, I know it was a temporary camera, but still...

Some of her pix remind me of my own current trend for darkness as device to focus interest.

Interesting photographs but a truly dreadful web site design. Unless I'm missing something (or it's unique to Safari on my Mac), if you click on one of the images to enlarge it, there's no way of moving to another: you have to go back to the thumbnails. Bizarre.
