Have any of you heard of Coursera? It was brought to my attention by Andrea Bernstein, a follower of “The Way I See It” and an old friend of Sheila and me currenly living on the West Coast, USA.
Coursera is a collection of internet degrees and courses under the auspices of London University and other prestigious insitutions as well. As part of its repertoire a number are offered free for non-degree and non-credit purposes. My initial plunge is into “The Camera Never Lies – ”an introduction to the use of photographs as historical evidence in the twentieth century, issues of authenticity and manipulation, and the place of film and historical adoptions as public history. “
I’m looking forward to it to fill the time after my second cataract operation coming up this Wednesday.
Rosemary and I are starting to put some photos out in public as a possible means of funding our expensive addiction. Hopefully it will pay dividents and one of our first ventures is to place some canvas mounted pictures in a local coffee bar/deli, for a couple of months. I include some of the photos below.
The second is the creation of a business card: cover photo shown here…..
We had a delightful Father’s Day breakfast at the Foodbarn in Noordhoek followed by a stroll through the suburb in glorious morning winter sunlight. Sorry no camera!!
But here are two of the images on display in Simon’s Town.
Till next time.
