  1. While having my morning tea (well, coffee and rusks) and watching YouTube, this video popped up on my suggested screen. It's quite an interesting look at a local surfing spot and the people who ride it. It'll give you some idea of the city where I live and the kind of people I grew up around. There's some talk of photography and also you'll get to see the famous Durban "Bunny Chow". Enjoy.
  2. Last week I was pretty busy with photographing Real Estate listings. I think I ended up doing 8 for the week. Some were great, some were just awful, so I am thinking of changing my official title from “Property Photographer” to “Turd Polisher”, because that is a very appropriate description of what I am doing when editing some of my work. Anyway, today I didn’t have anything on, so to get out of the house for a little while I took a drive down to the beachfront. For those of you who don’t know, May is the very best time of the year to visit Durban. The weather is quite stunning ne

    The Encroaching Ocean

    I had to get out of the house for a little while this morning. The weather has been very wet this entire month, which is seasonal but the temperatures are definitely not the norm for this time of year (19C high today). In years gone by we’d already be complaining about the humidity and discomfort levels, but things are not quite there yet. Anyway, while I was down there I noticed that there have been some very high seas and subsequent damage to the promenade. It’s been an ongoing issue my entire life, but I think that the ocean has taken off the gloves and no matter what measures

    My City At Dusk

    I did a shoot at a hotel up on the Ridge of Durban last night. This is 4 shots taken at dusk, handheld with the old Olympus E-M1, minor edits in Lightroom to boost shadows and reduce the noise. I reckon with a tripod and more time I could have had a lot of fun and likely a much better outcome. This is probably the best view of the entire city bowl I have seen. Click for larger view.
  7. Yesterday morning at about 9am I looked out my window and noticed what I thought were some very low lying black clouds. We have been expecting a weather event this weekend, so I didn't think too much of them. A few hours later I looked outside again and thought to myself, hang on a bit, those aren't clouds. I went out to the top of the road and there was just this massive plume of black smoke coming from somewhere South of where we live. I got out the camera and took a few shots. From the top of my driveway it looked like my neighbour's house was going up in smoke (ye

  9. By chance I caught this show on National Geographic as I was flipping through channels this morning. It's a National Geographic documentary made by a journalist who visited both Durban and Cape Town and how he saw the two cities. It's quite fascinating as it shows me a view of my city as seen from an outsider's perspective. Enjoy!
  10. Unfortunately not my images, but a very nice pictorial series of the city where I was born and have lived for most of my life. It's still a beautiful piece of geography, but unfortunately local government ineptitude has seen it slowly turn into a place I'd sooner leave than stick around for much longer. Failure of service deliveries, dirty streets in places, increasing vagrancy. The Central Business District isn't a safe place to be. Nobody I know goes into the city centre anymore. We tend to stick to the beachfront, shopping malls and other known areas. http://www.grantpitcher.co.za/arch
