Well the State of the Nation address started with a lot of controversy in parliament yesterday. First we had the objections about the jamming of cell phones and the the removing of the EFF. They did cause a long delay but JZ was asked months ago to reply and hasn`t done so yet.

When you don`t want to put your photo online there are several ways to do this. They may be photos but do not show detail and only people that know you in person would recognize.

This was taken with the cartoon setting on the camera and does not show fine detail.

You can also have fun with Sunrises if they look a bit tame.

If you are into photshop or similar there is always other options which are good for a bit of humor.

My last blog seems to have caused a lot of irate emails to be sent to me. It seem that not many people like to discuss matters of our rainbow nation being polarized.

first cameras

I have tried with all the digital cameras that I have to try and get some night photo`s with very limited success. While I was watching the constellation of Orion move across my field of vision I started to think of some of my early photographic memories. My first thought was of the Ensign full View that I got in 1950, it took a 120 Kodak film which was 21/4″ square. Latter I got a twin lense reflex which had a lot more settings. They took very good photo`s but in those days there was only black and white . It was quite late in the 50`s when they got colour films and they were expensive. In the 60`s I got a 35 mm SLR Miranda Sensorex which I still have. With this camera I took a lot of photo`s with time exposures some were quite weird and started my investigation into UFO`s. I don`t believe in little green men in flying saucers but I love experiment and investigate unusual things in the sky. A lot of my photos have been used by UFOSA for lectures and I think they were misrepresented. Most of these were taken in the mid 70`s and I would like some comments on them. Most were sent to NICAP in the USA and they can`t give me a good reply. This is of of them and were taken around the Southern Cross with a time exposure of 10 minutes.

These are some time delay shots of the night sky. The straight one is a shooting star the other has not yet been explained. These were taken in Cape Town many years ago on black and white film which was rated at 1500 ASA. I was taking pictures around the Southern Cross with exposures of a few minutes.You can see the effect of the Earths spin by the elongated star tracks.

This next one was sent to NICAP in the USA who do research into Aerial Phenomena. With this comparison you can see it was traveling faster than the spin of the Earth. I sent a copy to the newspapers but they contacted CSIR and they said it could not be published. At that time there was a UFO reported landing in Beaufort West and it was fired on by the SAP, so they were sensitive times.

We had an airshow at our local airport today. The only calamity was when the scaffolding fell on the Deputy Mayor and broke his leg. There are two seats up there but no guide wires or supports so it wasn`t surprising that it fell over.

These were some of the planes that did the fly bye’s and acrobatics.

Many of these photo`s were taken with a cell phone so are not really sharp.

The Fire Fighters were there with the Helicopter and water bucket.

Other aircraft were some very large flying models.

Not a flier but still interesting was the Hovercraft on a trailer.

Also there was a stand with some helicopters that could fly and use both still and video cameras.

There were some model jet aircraft flying but they were so fast that I couldn`t photograph them from the farm as they seemed so small.

There was a demonstation of a small fighter jet that buzzed the airport at a very low level but he was also too quick. It looked like one of the old Imparla jets used in the 90`s.

This morning I woke at 4 and decided to go down to the lookout point at the end of my road. The trouble with taking the sunrise from my garden now is that there are a lot of obstacles in the way as the sunrise is now over the sea. The lookout area has quite a few interesting bits of equipment around it which I will show later. Every morning this year I have been promising to come down here to photograph the sunrise but have been too lazy so early in the morning. I was a bit late for the crack of dawn as I had a coffee first and took some photo`s from the garden.

The peninsular on the right is Robberg Nature Reserve where I got my photo of the Caracul near the Seal Sanctuary.

There are some interesting walks there and some Bushman caves to be explored.

Thebuilding towards the left is the Beacon Isle Hotel. There used to be a Whaling Sation there before.

At the bottom right of the hotel is the desalination plant which was built last year.

This used to be a storm warning beacon for the Whaling ships and fishing boats which are no longer here.

There is a cellphone mast and large satellite dish here on the right.

On the right of the tank there is the siren that is used by the Sea Rescue Service.

This goes off every Friday at 12 O`clock as a test, it`s like the gun in Cape Town, you can set your clock by it. We have some cell phone masts that are disguised as palm trees which I will put on another blog.
