I have the knack of getting in the way whenever my daughter is trying to capture a landscape picture. I always (try to) obey the command to “get out of the picture”, but apparently my camouflage skills leave much to be desired. Also, I get a little bit impatient waiting for her to finish the shoot and allow me to carry on with my walking exercise.

That’s me hiding behind the sandbank, peeking out to see whether she’s done yet.

Me again: “Is this gonna take long?”

*** A dolos (plural dolosse – Afrikaans with approximate pronunciation “dawl-awe-suh”) is a concrete block in a complex geometric shape weighing up to 20 tons, used in great numbers to protect harbour walls from the erosive force of ocean waves. Source: Wikipedia.
