We’re having a grand time in Namibia! Today, we photographed all day at Kolmanskop, the old mining town that is being buried by sand. What an amazing place. There is such an aura there, of lives lived. I challenged everyone to capture the essence of place in there pictures, to tell the story of abandonment, faded glory, etc. It wasn’t hard! Everywhere you looked there were photographs. I loved how elegant this bannister was on this staircase. At one time, this place was beautiful and new. Now, it’s beautiful and old. My only complaint is that we are now moving on to Sossusvlei Dunes – but it will be another incredible location!
Marvelous lighting !!
Thank you Nalo, for your comment.
Ever since I read Freem Pattersons book with his images of this wonderful place, it has been on my bucket list. Someday! Fantastic image Branda. Bravo.
Freeman’s book is where I first learned of the place and fell in love with his images of it, too! It was on my bucket list too and now it’s happened and it’s wonderful. You have to get here, John. You’d love it!
Lovely, Bremda. I first learned of this place from Freeman Patterson’s work, and happy that you are carrying on – the place is on my list – love to see more of your images from this adventure…!
Hi Greg – thank you for visiting and commenting here! I will be posting more when I get time to edit them! We have a super busy schedule and internet has been very spotty in some of the more remote places we’ve been so far. But stay tuned!!!
