Cape Town Beach Scene

Cape Town Beach Scene Was going to crop this to my usual boring landscape type shot, purely out of habit, but decided to rather leave the focus on the people enjoying themselves on a lovely day at the beach.

Portraiture



A while ago I developed an interest in taking Portrait/Glamour Photographs. This was inspired by a few of my contacts on Flickr and I have started learning the tricks of the trade. The main problem is finding suitable models as because of my age nearly all my friends and family are a bit "Over the Hill". I was lucky enough to be invited by a friend/very distant relative to lunch the other day and his beautiful daughter and her equally beautiful cousin were there and I got to take a few shots.

West Coast Flowers 2008

The flowers were good again this year. Lovely day and nice Picnic lunch as the reastaurant in the area cannot cope with the crowds. Go Early!! http://www.flickr.com/photos/alexbondsmith/sets/72157607139776868/

Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photo Walk, Cape Town.

Walk around Bo-Kaap, down Wale Street, Adderley Street, up St Georges Mall to Greenmarket Square. Was a great event until unfortunately the rain started coming down towards the end. Link to shots taken on the walk. http://www.flickr.com/photos/alexbondsmith/sets/72157606920051660/

My Equipment

I have always been interested in Photography and went from film SLR and film P&S cameras to digital a few years back. I now own a Canon 400D camera with Sigma 17-70 macro, Sigma 50-150 2.8 HSM EX, Sigma 150-500 OS and Canon 70-300 IS lenses. I also have 2 smaller Canon P&S cameras (A720 IS and G10) for taking hiking and climbing.
