Knysna and Wilderness are two spots in the huge stunning Lagoon area of South Africa. They are based on the Indian ocean, half way between Cape Town and Durban.

Knysna is famous for it’s Lobster festival and yachts, and Wilderness is famous for it’s Full Moon beach parties and sort of “hippy” settlements. By Hippies I mean people who enjoyed Trance parties too much in the past, but then decided to go back to the roots and live close to the nature. They plant herbs and vegetables, take part in Saturday Food markets, play drums, etc.

One of the coolest things you can do in that area is to take a real old school Steam Train from Knysna to George. It takes almost 4 hours to cover 60 km, but you’ll enjoy every minute of this time and regret when it’s over. because the rail road goes literally through the top of the lakes, on the edge of the cliffs, by the ocean , and so on. Simply magic! How did they manage to do it more than 100 years ago???that’s the good question.
enjoy the ride! and, the Lobsters.

    Trusty Bags for Trusty Cameras

    We spend copious amounts of time stalking camera forums and researching specifications that "hunter" seems a more fitting term than "collector." And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.

    Photographic Pairs

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.

    LomoLocations: Reno, Nevada

    In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.
