I took this photo at Capitol Theatre, a grand condemned cinema in Pretoria city. It’s one of my very favorite places and very few people know of it. This small space is the old projection room, there is still film lying on the floor and all the old switches, power boxes and meters remain. I especially enjoy the peeling paint… There are rumours of a dressing room that still has costumes, but I haven’t found it yet. I’m not superstitious but the place is certainly spooky, in that very seductive kind of way.

It’s also the very first picture I edited in Photoshop. I’ve moved on from CorelDraw and Photopaint to Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop. Although I must admit I thought after all the hype I’d enjoy Adobe more, or that it would be easier… but honestly I think it’s over-complicated and I definitely prefer Corel. But maybe I still have a lot to learn, we’ll see how it progresses. I have to hand in my Adobe exam project next month, it’s my very last exam for this year. Yay for me!
