The Boys

'John Ross House is burning down!' That got me up, cameras ready. I looked for smoke and flames on my way into town. Maybe this is old news? And then I see it. A pretty small fire considering the number of people on the pavement who have been evacuated.

There are parents with small kids in blankets. There are suspicious twenty something girls who duck every time I put my camera to my eye. It happens to me a lot these days...

Out of the corner of my eye I see a child who should be in bed at this hour doing the moonwalk. After a brief chat they insisted I make a photograph of them and this is the result.

Tree Hugging Soccer Fans

It is a common site at soccer games to see spectators watching from unusual positions. Even a club games is beyond the financial reach of certain fans. During the Confederations Cup I got to know a little about security. There will be no fans in trees! They will have not got past the multi level security checks.

No Swimming

While looking through my archive for a client request I stumbled on this image which I made last year. Not sure why exactly but it makes me feel good. Leaves me thinking about stuff which I have not thought of for a long time, probably when I was a teenager. And I like it just for that.

Learning to Surf

Walking on the Durban beach front recently the weather turned. From sunshine to mist in a matter of minutes giving the skyline an interesting feel.
