Keedo gets gifts from Grandma

Dress & Bolero - Keedo -- Socks - Checkers

My daughter is lucky to have a loving grandma, who also has great taste. I must admit she buys her clothes that are prettier than the clothes I buy. They make her look like the cute girl that she is. She is gonna look like an angel in this dress.

Having a son as my first baby and having tomboy tendencies myself, really counts against her girlishness when I buy her clothes. There's nothing wrong with being a tomboy, if Shiloh Jolie-Pitt can get away with it, so can she ;)

A Dignified Xhosa Man

I couldnt keep my eyes off this man, there was just something about him that made me want to photograph him. 

Maybe it was his demeanor, it was so dignified, so self assured and confident. I think what drew me in the most was his style. 
I love the pattern on his shirt, the colours of his hand crocheted hat, the blade inspired belt buckle, the beads and off course the handkerchief and spectacles hanging out of his pocket.

As umakoti, I felt a little insecure about asking an elder for a photo, so I asked my husband to get behind the lens. I'm glad they both agreed to indulge me.
