Vote For The Photo Of The Month: September 2013

  1. 05 P Van Schalkwyk. The Face expresses a profound beauty that brings me back to my fonder childhood years. I can remember now skipping through the crisp green grass in my front yard, frollicking in the mud in my birthday suit, not a care in the world. Can’t help tearing up. Love you xxx

    1. Thanks so much Michael, I had a scroll through your flickr stream yesterday, and it was mindblasting, I love your style. Your image here is really spectacular and in my opinion deserves to win. Great B&W work! I hope too see more of your work soon. All the best.

  2. Nr 4. Michael Groenewald. Such a powerfull photograph, must have been a tough hike to get to that spot.The B&W proccessing here is superb, and the light and weather played it’s part . Congrats on capturing it so well and sharing it with us.
