Way back when.....

Often simply written as "W/NW" - your favorite photos. Explain them, or let your photos (film or digital) speak for themselves.

Way back when.....

Post by GrahamS » Wed Jan 06, 2021 9:18 am

Way back when God was a boy, we had friends who built their own "Rondavels" on their land near Pretoria, South Africa. The "Rondavel" is a traditional African hut, with wattle and clay/manure walls and a thatch roof. Our friends used cinder bricks for a little more permanence. Eventually there were four Rondavels, all interconnected by short passages. I was about 16 years old and my camera was a Ricoh 500 f2.8. Film was Kodak motion picture stock rated at 80 ASA processed in D76.

A traditional Zulu village in the Valley of a Thousand Hills, KwaZulu, Natal, South Africa. Note the circular construction of the “Rondavel” huts, which are made from wattle and clay mixed with cow manure.

Interesting design! Those blue hills look very special.

Is that an Austin wagon? once my father had the car version!
