For years scientists have been battling to find a way to freeze time without success. Many have died of frost bite, others of brain freeze. Photographers on the other hand have had a bit more luck. For one day only Groupon offers you the opportunity to freeze a few family moments with the help of Memories of Africa photography for R450.
No stiff necks, funeral faces or fights over front row seats. Memories of Africa gives you and your family the opportunity to replace out-dated pictures on the passage wall with fun, quirky moments shared between loved ones. The pictures are taken in a natural setting of your choice or in the comfort of your own home – whichever is prettiest and most comfortable for you, the baby and the dog. Afterwards you will receive ten jumbo prints of your favourite moments to put up or send to granny to brag with.

Photo fact: At a recent art auction in Germany, the highest bid was placed on a photo titled ‘memories of mayonnaise’ . The picture is one in a series featuring a faded dinosaur duvet spread out on grass with half a jar of mayonnaise sitting next to it. Art enthusiasts were moved to tears, overwhelmed by the sense of loneliness so brilliantly captured in the single shot.
