2016 Wavescape Fish Fry

The Wavescape Festival has been running over the past few weeks with a number of events including the Film Festival, Artboard Charity Auction and the Fish Fry. The Fish Fry was centred around a celebrity fish braai, but included food trucks, Jack Black Beer (Being the host venue) and a photo contest.

So, I had entered a few photos into the photo contest in the name of good fun/ just because.

I had some dark moody images in there, but it’s always funny when an image like the one below, which is so far off my personality, takes precedence over what I would expect to be my best work. The image is close up, happy, colourful, and totes not my usual vibe. But, I can see the appeal in a happy-go-lucky, warm hearted kind of vibe, if you must.

On the inside, you usually want to win, but i’d often prefer not to. Part sore loser ( I could have a little cry), massive part social anxiety. I battle to involve myself in social occasions, never mind being the centre of attention. Un/fortunately, having taken 3rd place, with local photo legends Sacha Specker and Morne Laubscher taking 2nd and 1st place respectively, I had to force myself to show face.

Good people, good vibe.

Special thanks to Wavescape, my work crew for the support, and the prize sponsors RVCAFippers and Granadilla!
