Tobias
 (43) and his wife Lynne (34) love their Iceberg white Mercedes-Benz W114 from 1975 and they drive it in and around Cape Town, South Africa, a city filled with vintage Mercedes-Benz cars. Tobias is obsessed with cycling; he is a BMX legend and he is a real entrepreneur: employing more than 40 people, he owns Fittees, a clothing factory focusing on t-shirts and raw selvedge denim, a screen-printing workshop, a BMX workshop, as well as four clothing stores called Hello Again. This dude is on a mission to conquer and more. Lynne is a vegan hippie mom looking after their children Reuben (3) and Leo (1) and she is working on becoming a childbirth educator. In addition, she is a trend forecaster and is also in charge of Hello Again’s women’s wear production, interior design and window displays. The Groenewald family lives in Vredehoek, above Cape Town city’s bowl on the slopes of Table Mountain with nice city, harbor and sea views. His one year old Mercedes-Benz W114 is Tobie’s first Mercedes-Benz. He calls it his ‘Merc’.

Tell me about your Mercedes-Benz.
Tobias: It’s a Sunday car, we drive it once a week. It’s for leisure and pleasure. We drive it to special events. During the week I drive my bakkie (pick up truck) while building and opening shops and on the weekends I’m on my bicycle and in my Merc.
Lynne: Yeah, it’s not a car for rushing around. It’s a cruiser. You gotta relax, take it easy and cruise down to town.

Where do you like to go with your Mercedes-Benz, what are your favourite spots in Cape Town?
Tobias: On Sunday mornings we drive around Table Mountain and go to Clifton beach with the whole family and the dog.
Lynne: Our son Reuben always sits in the front seat like an old man, very proud, he loves the Merc. Another spot is The Plantation, an urban park close to our house, where Tobias is busy building BMX jumps. From there you have an awesome view.

What was important for you when you bought your Mercedes-Benz?
Tobias: I wanted a vintage Merc. I saw this kind of Merc driving around in Cape Town, without head rests, that look is pretty distinctive. I looked for two years until I found this one. It’s still pretty original. My dad had a Merc like this when I was three years old. He was a car dealer, he had many Mercedes-Benz cars and he was the one who found it for me. It was hidden in a car dealership in Bloemfontein. My dad had never shared any emotions when buying cars. But when he told me about this car, he was really excited. I bought it without seeing it. I went to Kimberley, 1000 kilometers away from Cape Town, to fetch it. The first time I saw it, I immediately wanted to get back on the road – it was exactly how my dad described it.

Your Mercedes-Benz sounds like a car for good times…
Lynne: Driving along the coast at 80 km/h, windows open, a cool breeze from the ocean and listening to Rodriguez, that’s the best.

P.S. Lynne dreams of a cherry red Mercedes-Benz SL 450. “That’s what I want. It’s the most feminine and elegant car.”

{couples} The magic of the morning light – oh, how we love it. Together with Jen and Francois, we watched the moon set and the sun rise on Signal Hill, a truly magic spot in Cape Town. Have we mentioned that we love living in Cape Town? 🙂 Life is good when we do things like this. A beautiful way to start the day with beautiful people.

428i BMW shoot for BMW South Africa

{automotive} We had the opportunity to shoot the new 428i BMW for BMW South Africa. It was a big challenge to shoot this dark shiny car – everything just reflects off it!! Another challenge was the fact that we only had two shooting days. I (Des) love this car, maybe something for us one day 🙂

Geneviève and Alistair, Bo-Kaap, Cape Town & Vrede En Lust Simondium, South Africa

{wedding} Oh, what beautiful people! Gen and Al wanted to do the ‘first look’ before the wedding ceremony. What a special moment in Bo-Kaap in Cape Town. Calm before the storm. We thought we share our favorite shots of the first look plus the couple shoot later on at Vrede en Lust with you. Enjoy! Much love, dna – Desmond ‘n Antonia
P.S. At the beginning of this year, we ‘shot’ the two at the lighthouse in Kommetjie. Have a look at the pix over here.

Edward, Bo-Kaap & Devil’s Peak, Cape Town, South Africa

This is Edward from Canada. He has literally been around the world working for an airline for many years. 10 years ago he visited Cape Town, last week he was in the Mother City again and we did a little portrait shoot in Bo-Kaap and at the foot of Devil’s Peak. He’s an awesome dude with style and positive thoughts about life. Edward, we hope you love your GQ-ghetto-shoot, we had so much fun! Cheers and see ya soon, here or there..

Road trip: Detroit, Pennsylvania, Boston, New York City, USA

Hello!! So the final days in America were MIND-BLOWING! We left Detroit and drove into Pennsylvania to spend a night there. This state never heard of the fuel crisis in the world, that’s for sure. Once again we encountered lovely people and amazing landscapes. While we were driving, Justus said that it’s a pity we can’t really test the car’s ability on these roads. The rules are strict and we don’t want to test the cops again. I asked the GPS to look for race tracks and it pointed out a track 20 miles from us. We thought we must go have a look, maybe we are lucky and the gate is open or something. We arrived and there were two guys who own this oval track. We spoke to them and they said we can do on the track what we want, but they want to feel the car, too! After signing some paperwork the track was ours!!! We had so much fun, and to top it all, they gave us a ride in their NASCAR! Now THAT’S power. Here is a short clip I took while in the car. The next day we drove off to Boston to do some sightseeing. What a lovely city – Harvard was interesting. Its was enrollment day and the town was full of young nervous first years and their parents, haha. After that it was time for the Big Apple again, New York City! I don’t even know where to begin, I walked the city flat (I still have a blister on my right foot the size of a R5 coin!). Interesting, weird, well groomed – random people; David Blaine walked past carrying a small alligator (promise). I was just like ‘nothing surprises me anymore, that’s so normal right now’. Like all my trips this one was way too short. NYC, I will be back, promise. You are astonishing!

Driving a Dodge Charger in Detroit, USA

We arrived in Detroit! At first I was shocked of the state of this city and all the suburbs. So many beautiful houses stand empty and are falling into pieces, it’s crazy. The city is turning into one giant ghost city, but it’s very charming I must say. The people here are super friendly, I can feel there is still a good vibe here. I got up early to take a shot of the Dodge Charger (Dodge Charger SRT8, 6.4 liter engine, a remake of an old muscle car in the 60’s and 70’s) in front of an old house. I was setting my lights to take a shot of the car and this dude walked up to me, his name is Glory Hoggz (check him out on youtube!) and he is a rapper from Detroit. I asked if I can take a few shots of him and said “Sure thing man, let’s do this shit!”.
We worked a bit in a coffee shop, then we had a long shoot with the Dodge Charger in an old Packard factory. This place was massive!!! So after we found a place to enter the building with the car we drove around in the building from one room to another to find cool shooting locations, it was soooo rad! I must still work on the pictures (and I want to save them for the publication) but I have one pic of the rear that I quickly edited :). After this we went to a jazz festival in downtown Detroit with loads of happy people, I took some pics and Justus interviewed people. After this we went to a local brewery and had the most awesome beer. We were looking for a spot to cross the river next to Detroit so that we can stand on the other side of the water and take a picture of the car with the city skyline. We drove over this bridge and on the other side there was a huge Canadian flag. We were like ‘WTF’! So we arrived at the Canada border control and told them we didn’t realize we are actually entering Canada by crossing this bridge, they thought we are the biggest idiots alive and after some paperwork we could leave again for Detroit. So the Canadian border control thinks all South Africans are stupid, sorry about that! We had to go to this little island to get a shot with the same feeling, I love this photo! Detroit was cool, I will be back! Today we must travel 700km, so we better hit the road!

Skating through New York City, USA

So I arrived in New York. The heat was high, very high, but I love it! On my arrival I quickly had a shower and took my skateboard and skated down Broadway, I always wanted to do this and it rocked. I also went to High Level Park and chilled in Central Park. All in all a good and exhausting day. I took some photos while skating, hope you like it 🙂 Tomorrow I will go to Detroit to meet up with Justus from InRat to pick up the V8. We will take some photos in the dark alleys of Detroit, can’t wait!!!! Watch this space, I will try to blog at least every second day.

Conny, Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin, Germany

Conny is one of my (Antonia) favourite people in Germany. We met during university-times in Germany and have ever since stayed in touch. During our five-week-stay in Berlin we met up every couple of days for Pimm’s, other drinks and dinners and actions (with our husbands 🙂 and caught up properly. How amazing staying in the same city for a while. Conny is a graphic designer and will have a kick-ass website up and running very soon, so we took a few shots to show who she is. Love, love, love my Conny-girl – you have the best heart in the world! We miss you guys already, dna – Desmond ‘n Antonia

Katja, Mike and Levi, Berlin, Germany

Now they’re three. Katja and Mike got married in early 2011 in Kommetjie at the beach, close to Cape Town.
Last week we met up in Berlin and got to know their little baby boy Levi. We walked along Oderberger Strasse and Mauerpark for a couple of shots. Berlin is full of pregnant women and babies, Levi must be one of the cutest – so chilled and happy. What a beautiful family! Lovely meeting you again on the other side of the world.
Much love, dna – Desmond ‘n Antonia
