I have always loved birds. I’m not a binoculars and book kind of guy but their busy happiness always lifts my spirits. Photographing birds is another story. It is very difficult and I lack the equipment, patience and skills to be a good bird photographer. I photographed this bird as an antidote to endless oversaturated crappy boring head in the sand sunsets I see if Joburg. This is also Joburg I’m afraid. It is what we have done to our environment for over 100 years as we ripped gold from the ground. Shot on one of the remnants of a very old mine dump. Toxic and ugly. #downtown #birds #socialdocumentary #environment #mining #goldmine #minedump
