Card Tricks

Cds IMG 3978

When I was doing a photoshoot at the Cape Town Magic Club a few weeks ago, I met Greg Gelb, a “deception artist” who does amazing sleight of hand magic tricks. We got talking, and he he ended up booking me for a photoshoot.

Not only did I get paid to do a really fun photoshoot, I also got a free magic show thrown it. Greg does some amazing stuff! If you’re looking for a magician for your function, give Greg a call (and no this is not a paid post – Greg is really very good).

He performs at The Thirsty Scarecrow in Stellenbosch every second Sunday from 1-4pm (I’ll be there on Sun 3rd), so if you want to check his magic out and have an entertaining afternoon, pop on down.

Here are two more pics from the shoot.

I’m not sure if I would play a game of Poker with Greg

Interesting photo of a dandelion

What do you think of this pictures? It is just a weed growing on the side of the road, but the pic came out quite well. I quite like the contrast between the background and foreground.

Just a simple dandelion growing out of the pavement.

Ducks on Vergenoegd Wine Estate

Yesterday we celebrated Lois’ dad’s 70th birthday party at the Pomegranate restaurant at Vergenoegd wine estate. They have turned the old manor house into the restaurant.

While having lunch, I saw the most strange thing – a duck parade! The farm has about 300 Indian runner ducks living on the farm. These ducks run through the vinyards, looking for snails and small insects to eat. This novel solution to pest control keeps the vineyards pest-free in an environmentally friendly manner.

So, in the middle of lunch, about 100 ducks came marching through the outside of the restaurnant, much like a class of school children out on a school outing.

They marched onto the lawns, ate everything in site (at least all the snails), and left. Thinking about it, it sounds more like varsity students than school kids.

Although they are both noisy and smelly, it is kind-of cute to watch. And I was really glad that I had decided to order the fish and not the duck that was on the lunch menu!

If you get the opportunity to go to the farm, do so. It is not something that you will see everyday!
