You know when you get excited because you will have good food, and it is actually nutritious and it looks amazing. Well that is Carola Ann’s Restaurant for you. Chef Corelie De Villiers Shami and her husband Samuel Shami share their passion for food in their daily creations.
The restaurant is located at the centre of Mossel Bay, just around the corner from the Tourism Information Center. It is really worth a visit. I must admit I was very hungry after this photo shoot. Here it is, some yummy soul food for you.

Meet Du Toit Family.
This happy bunch first appeared very shy in front of my camera. But few playful tasks for boys, couple of Russian words and some encouragement helped them to open up! I find it is always easier to photograph families with kids in a very playful way. We have been crossing rivers with crocodiles, jumping from one ship to another, climbing trees and just being silly. Parents love to play along and help transform common park into a real scene of action. Thank you for such fun photoshoot, so blessed!

It is always exciting to work with cute shy couples, and then, see them transform throughout the photo shoot. Meet Salome and Stephan. Both of them leave in Germany. Last month they came to South Africa on holiday to visit Salome’s parents. Oh yes, remember that moment when boyfriend meets her family for the first time! Exciting, but scary:)
With the help of photography I wanted to show them, how beautiful they are together, show them their love for each other. By the end of the shoot they opened up and helped me create memories!
Last week I joined archaeologist Peter Nilssen on his tour “Point of Human Origins” in Mossel Bay South Africa. Rainy cold day didn’t spoil the experience. It was an exciting interactive talk on our origins and present human condition combined with an archaeological walk to scenic caves.
Until year 2000 it was believed that modern human behaviour first appeared in Eurasia about 50 000 years ago. The Pinnacle Point Caves of Mossel Bay show evidence of modern human behaviour that dates between 72 000 and 162 000 years ago. The evidence suggests that Pinnacle Point of Mossel Bay has the traces of the earliest modern humans. In other words until they find something else, that is where modern humans come from, that is where we come from or have been on our journey.
The big part of the Peter Nilssen’s tour is dedicated to understanding of the human bahaviour 100 000 years ago and comparison with our behaviour today. What was driving humans behaviour back then? Are we any different today? What did modern human back then knew and practiced that we’ve lost today? Where are we going as a specie?

Meet beautiful Nicola!
I truly enjoyed our photoshoot together. It is always exciting to work with gorgeous ladies, but it is even more exciting to work with somebody, who can change their look instantly.
Boy, this girl can transform her image: from an innocent angel looking girl to a proud lady with exquisite look.
Nicola is looking for more exciting photo projects in the Garden Route, please contact me for offers and ideas.
