The catalogue and picture galleries for my #NAF18 exhibition ‘Metamorphosis’ are now online. They’re in my new store and website: https://roddythefox.co.za/ You’re most welcome to visit and see what’s going to be on offer!
I’ve also uploading some Iceland landscapes to showcase the types of image galleries that will be appearing there in the next few weeks.

As #NAF18 draws closer the 1820 Settlers National Monument gets busier and busier. So I took a chance yesterday that there would still be some peace to make a photo essay of my favourite part of the building – the Fountain Court. It’s quite a challenge being a central atrium that’s several stories deep. There’s natural light spilling in from two sides and down from the top but artificial light on the other two sides. I settled on my tiny 9mm fisheye body cap lens to pull in as much of the space as possible. The rectangular shapes of the famous yellowwood scaffolding sculpture, the many long pillars and banner-like Skotnes murals all help make dramatic shots. The fisheye lens does a great job of curving them round the Millstone Fountain and sunburst roof decoration. There’s a nice selection of my Grahamstown pictures over at roddythefox.co.za.
