The face of COVID-19 in the harbour at Hout Bay. No ones really knows how people who struggle to survive on the streets are faring with the increased pressure of life in the pandemic. At first the whole community was mobilised to provide food for these impoverished people. Understandably, exhaustion has now set in with the result that people like this are at huge risk.
Two lovely gentlemen are chatting up a storm as they get into the Daylebrook Tidal Pool near Kalk Bay, South Africa. They come early, sometimes before the sun is up, and get their exercise for the day. Is this Street Photography? I think it falls within the parameters.
Little Keagan in the time of COVID-19. I loved the fragility of a little man looking up at his grandfather. The aberrations of the body and hands are intended to show how fragile we all are as humans and how we can never take life for granted.
This was one of the marshals at one of the organised runs through the City of Cape Town. I love reading faces, as I am sure you do. The look at pride to be doing this job touched my heart, and I celebrated the joy of life seen in the faces of humans in Cape Town.

Felix Chughuda from Dar es Salaam in Tanzania has been living in the Cape Town Gardens for years. He is on assignment from his elders to live with the people of Cape Town and to make friends, before he can return and get married.
He is still there in the Gardens after a decade, and my heart reaches out to him.
The sadness shines through.
