"Yellow tailed wasp" has been published on Pascal Parent Photos  More information at http://wp.me/p4WBG2-nR I have some luck with flying insects lately, I do not even have to leave the confines of my garden. I unfortunately do not have a scientific name for this beauty, if you do please leave me a note and I’ll add it. Shot in my garden.

"Macaw parrot snapshot" has been published on Pascal Parent Photos  More information at http://wp.me/p4WBG2-nw One, if not my biggest, pet peeve in the photography space is: Because you are known as a photographer, snapshots will not do! But what if I wanted to share a memory, not a portfolio image? No you cannot and will not publish that, says the masses! So I am defying the masses, here is my macaw parrot snapshot!

"Purple Rain" has been published on Pascal Parent Photos  More information at http://wp.me/p4WBG2-no The jacarandas in Johannesburg are a sight to see, the northern suburbs of the city turn purple with these majestic trees. This, from end of October the the firs few weeks of November, is the season. We call it purple rain season and you can see why. Interesting fact: The Jacaranda is not native to South Africa or Africa for that matter, even if our capital city Pretoria is

"Cape Town 180 degrees" has been published on Pascal Parent Photos  More information at http://wp.me/p4WBG2-nf This is the last image (See what I just did? I called it an image, just for the purists!), from my Cape Town trip. This image stretches from Green Point on the left to Table Mountain on the right and the City of Cape Town in the middle, clearly seen is the table cloth running down Table Mountain one of the “new” 7 wonders of nature. I had everything pla

"Ansteys Building Foyer" has been published on Pascal Parent Photos  More information at http://wp.me/p4WBG2-mD Randomly chosen by my mother Claire Parent from my Blue collection. I restarted something I stopped doing about a year ago, asking people to randomly chose the next photos I will be posting. This forces me to think each time I post a photo as they often are from different shoot and eras. This one is from a photowalk back in January 2015, we covered central Johanne

"Grass" has been published on Pascal Parent Photos  More information at http://wp.me/s4WBG2-grass Photo 10 the 2016 Collection Wide-angle photography is not easy, sure when it is a landscape or cityscape, point, frame, shoot and voila! But there is so much more to it than that, the finer details, the wide scope of life and more, much more. My wife, Geraldine, is so good at finding these, I often think she is a natural. She will deny it but she does have an eye for it.  Phot

"Voortrekker Monument at Sunset" has been published on Pascal Parent Photos  More information at http://wp.me/p4WBG2-m0 Photo 9 the 2016 Collection With the coming Pretoria wide-angle photowalkI thought it would be wise to scout the area and make sure everything was accessible, that there is enough subject matter to shoot and that we can get the sunset! It would have been nice to have clouds as clouds make for better sunsets but this image of the monument speaks for itself,

"Santarama Miniland" has been published on Pascal Parent Photos  More information at http://wp.me/p4WBG2-kO Photo 7 the 2016 Collection I love the derelict because it makes for good photography, but today I found myself ashamed of the derelict, I found myself shameful of being South African. You may think it is the politics of the last few days and you would be wrong in many ways. I was organizing a photo-walk with a challenge, 50mm shallow depth of field, I wanted everyone
