WPC Peek: Take cover

Hiding behind the sandbank

I have the knack of getting in the way whenever my daughter is trying to capture a landscape picture. I always (try to) obey the command to “get out of the picture”, but apparently my camouflage skills leave much to be desired. Also, I get a little bit impatient waiting for her to finish the shoot and allow me to carry on with my walking exercise.

Here my daughter was sitting on top of a sandbank formed at high tide, trying to get a shot of the clear blue ocean in the back. Noticed the round boulder in the middle of the picture? …

That’s me hiding behind the sandbank, peeking out to see whether she’s done yet.

Here she was capturing a wide shot of the tidal pool at low tide. Notice the odd shape of the first pillar on the front wall? …

Me again: “Is this gonna take long?”

Me: “Can you still see me?”

*** A dolos (plural dolosse – Afrikaans with approximate pronunciation “dawl-awe-suh”) is a concrete block in a complex geometric shape weighing up to 20 tons, used in great numbers to protect harbour walls from the erosive force of ocean waves. Source: Wikipedia.

    • Haha, ek is seker die tweede meeste gefotografeerde persoon in die familie – net my kleindogter loop my voor.

  8. Gebruik jy daai kierie om die kinders in toom te hou? 😉

    • Nee, dis om mense wat hulle honde sonder halsbande op die strand laat rondloop deur die bek te klap.

      • Lekker klap… ek klap saam… veral as daai honne die hele plek bebol met stront!
