Debating is almost a contact sport in Tibetan Buddhism. Here a group of monks go at it in the grounds of Ganden Monestary, central Tibet #blackandwhitephoto #tibet #buddhism #tibetanbuddhism #monk #debate #gandenmonestary

Meet Moosa. He is originally from Soweto but moved into this squatter camp in Booysens to be closer to work. He is a gardener in the upmarket suburb of Houghton. The daily commute from from Soweto was too expensive and he was frequently in trouble for being late. He says it is much better now. The squatter camp is unfortunately over run with rats so he is dragging this bin of cement he has salvaged from outside a nearby cement yard to try to seal off his shack. He is a devout Muslim and was a bit annoyed that moving the cement had caused him to miss morning prayers. #Jozi #streetphotography #traintracks #squattercamp #informalsettlement

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
Enjoyed the cricket yesterday. Tough job selling soft drinks all day. #johannesburg #cricket #cocacola #bullring #sacricket #streetphotography #jozi
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
