Mostly I post images from Jozi. It's my home and I love it. Sometimes you visit a place, a very foreign place and you feel totally comfortable and at home. The Mahabodhi Temple in Bodh Gaya was such a place for me. The place of the Buddhas enlightenment. #streetphotography #blackandwhitephotography #india #buddhism #mahabodhitemple #bihar #bodhgaya
This is Lucky's wife. She has three children one just a small baby. All living nestled between the mine dumps at the Crown Mine Interchange. No electricity. No water. They have dogs and an enormous pig. She told me it's a lovely quiet place to live, no problems. #streetphotography #jozi #shack

Meet Lucky. He is from Polokwane. For 11 years he has lived in this shack below the Crown Mine interchange nestled between some of the oldest nine dumps in Johannesburg. He breeds Greyhounds for extra money. #streetphotography #jozi

Most of the people living in Diepsloot are unemployed. The majority of the employed work in Sandton an exceptionally wealthy suburb. #streetphotography #cyclist #township #johannesburg #diepsloot
Adults are usually busy or anxious when negotiating Park Station. Children are usually thrilled by the vast space and milling people. #been2parkstationlately  #johannesburg #streetphotography
I always thought Mandela Square in Sandton was just a blatant attempt to cash in on the Mandela name. Then I noticed this scene where the great man seems to be smiling down on the children playing in the fountains. I imagine he might be happy with that as an afterlife. #johannesburg #mandela #sandton

Imagine being a homeless woman downtown Johannesburg. How would that feel? How would you feel as the day ended and the light drained from the sky? #homeless #streetphotography #jozi #johannesburg #jozigrams
Explain, if you can, why Eastgate in Johannesburg had stuffed polar bears at its Santa stand. Polar bears in Africa. Really. #johannesburg #blackandwhite #streetphotography #shoppingmalls #Xmas
I was wandering around central Joburg when this guy asked me for money for food. He looked hungry. A little down on his luck. I gave him money and asked if I could take his photo. He wasn't so happy about the trade I think. #streetphotography #johannesburg

Mr Victor Dlamini standing at the entrance to his studio and gallery in the old Fort on Constitution Hill. It is well worth visiting this fascinating man if you would like to see his collection of West African art, listen to a great selection of vinyl and view his portrait photography. Tell him I sent you.

I am getting in the spirit with this Christmas offering. Definitely children can show us how to delight in things. #been2parkstationlately  #streetphotography #xmas #xmastree #childhoodunplugged
Shopping at The Zone in Rosebank. Nice if you can afford it. #shopping #mall #johannesburg #rosebank #blackandwhite #streetphotography
I think this is the burnt out ruin of the old Dungeon Club in downtown Joburg. It was famous in the 1980's when I lived in Hillbrow. Am I correct? Who remembers this place? #blackandwhite #Jozi #gayclub #ruin #downtown
