1. Mma Ramotswe had a detective agency in Africa, at the foot of Kgale Hill. These were its assets; a tiny white van, two desks, two chairs, a
telephone, and an old typewriter. Then there was a teapot, in which Mma Ramotswe - the only private lady detective in Botswana - brewed red
bush tea. And three mugs - one for herself, one for her secretary and one for the client. What else does a detective agency really nee? Detective
agencies rely on human intuition and intelligence, both of which Mma Ramotswe had in abundance.
But there was also the view, which again would appear on no inventory.

2. Nevertheless, photographs still retain some of the magical allure that the earliest daguerreotypes inspired. As objects, our photographs have
changed; they have become physically flimsier as they have become more technologically sophisticated. Daguerre produced pictures on copper
plates; today many of our photographs never become tangible thins, but instead remain filed away on computers and cameras, part of the digital
ether that envelops the modern world. At the same time, our patience for the creation of images has also eroded. Children today are used to being
tracked from birth by digital cameras and video recorders and they expect to see the results of their poses and performances instantly.
