This was my last photograph...we were having lunch at Wuppertal when a flock of sheep came trotting down the street...

Randomness to the max... ken die chick, sy het amper 'n ding aangehad met my roomie van Stellenbosch dae. Baie cool meisie! Sal bietjie vir hom aanstuur... hy is ook intussen getroud.

@ LSS: Ja, die meisie was baie plat op die aarde, en haar man ook! Vra bietjie vir RCerrie hoe vriendelik was hy! Maar mens kan sien hulle is die sout van die aarde! Ja, die lewe is RANDOM! Classic!

Thank you! I was just really keen on film for this trip, plus i knew the Minolta sRT100's body could take the punch without me feeling sorry for it all the time! ...it's been standing for years, so it was pretty dirty and as a result not as sharp as it should be, but i still dig the old school look & feel of them! We've become so spoilt with digital where we shoot carelessly - i've had to select my shots carefully as i've only had one colour film & one b&w...that alone makes you appreciate the images, regardless of what they look like!  ;D

Just so you guys understand this properly...MM has a very sensitive tummy and we were heading for the Pofadder ablutions, but i ran out of petrol and they were forced to pull off and assit me in my dilemma...MM could no longer control the contractions...we were in the middle of nowhere and the vast open plains offered no privacy from those big double decker tour busses, so he went for the safest option, knowing that the rains will wash away all evidence in this desert country! RC was behind the camera for documetational purposes only! ...ja, it's funny and all, but it's also reality! when you have to go, you have to go! ...and be so kind to check MM's motto...'n pee sonder 'n poep is soos 'n plaashuis sonder 'n stoep...
