25 Jan Nick & Marshini at Rickety Bridge, Franschhoek
Hi everyone, it’s been a while 🙂 I took a bit of a break from blogging, which went on a wee bit longer than anticipated. I’m hoping to be blogging most of my weddings this year, but we will see how it goes.
Marshini and Nick had us fly over to Cape Town to photograph their Hindu wedding at the beautiful Rickety Bridge wine farm, in the Franschhoek area. I have not been to Cape Town for way too long now, and this area especially brought back many fond childhood memories. In fact, Tim and I did a little road trip with my dad (where we stayed over) the day after the wedding, and I cannot describe the joy I had swimming in a Cape mountain stream again. It must rank as one of my all time favourite things to do in this wonderful world we live in.
It was sad that Cindy could not join me, as she actually has never been to Cape Town before, and we were really looking forward to this. Speaking of which, our little one is due beginning of February, so the bags are packed and ready for action any day now. We might take a couple of days off with the arrival of the baby, so please do bear with us if we are a bit slower on the e-mails.
Other news is that I took up fly fishing, and it’s crack for my soul. I have Cindy a bit worried I think (I can see it in her eyes 🙂 ). Apparently I’m spending too much time on fly fishing forums, and contemplating mayfly and caddis nymph patterns. Heck, I’ve been dreaming about the stuff of late, and this while Cindy is about to give birth to our first child #needtogetprioritiesstraight .
Tying in with the wedding, I fell three times at this wedding, and we were warned three times that we really REALLY need to be careful of snakes, especially puff adders. So next time I’m shooting a wedding in Franschhoek, expect to see me with a wading stick, and a pair of turtle skins , (and quite possibly a 7 piece fly rod in my camera bag.
