Hello and welcome!

My name is Reggie and I am a writer, blogger and photographer, based in Cape Town, South Africa – arguably one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

I regard myself as very fortunate to have been allowed behind the scenes of the Cape Town Military Tattoo since 2010, pen in hand and camera at the ready!

I have been writing for many years on my Grains of Sand blog, but unfortunately that blog has almost reached full capacity (having accumulated 3 GB worth of images with, sadly, no prospect of a space upgrade). As I have sooo many photos and stories still to share about the Tattoo, all sitting on my computer, I have decided to create a new blog that focuses specifically on the Tattoo.

I hope you will enjoy following this blog as it grows and develops.
