These two women decided to scale Nelson Mandela's giant spectacles on the Promenade in Seapoint, Cape Town. I loved their childlikeness, their sense of fun, taking advantage of what is and turning it into a moment of joy. Wearing a head covering, little did they know, is now the norm, and this takes on added meaning as we look fondly at their love for life. 

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. 

There's lots a material if you ever wander down the Promenade at Seapoint. There was something very special, something hard to define in this woman's bearing, but it was appealing to me, touching my heart and reminding me that being out in the sun can bring such joy. 

I didn't manage to see her face, it was the tension in her stance as she crossed the road during a recent Argus Cycle Tour, along with the way her plait gave direction to her intended movement across a busy road. 

Two lovely gentlemen are chatting up a storm as they get into the Dalesford 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 woman was captured while she was in full flight; objecting to all the corruption and demanding the resignation of President Jacob Zuma of South Africa 

I asked them if they loved Jacob Zuma, the then President of the Republic of South Africa. They never answered me. Their faces said it all. 
He sat and glared. Did he know somehow that my grandfather was a colonist? I shrank away, feeling guilty for the stolen moment, 

This man is seated in a café in Cape Town, South Africa. He does look like he should be on that bicycle and exploring the world rather.

Felix lives on the streets of Cape Town and has done for several years. He was sent out by his tribe in North Africa to the "forests of Cape Town." It turned out that these "forests" were the people. His duty, to learn to live among them bringing peace and harmony wherever he went. He is not allowed to marry until he feels he has achieved success. I understand his predicament; I was also once part of a cult. 

Two white woman make their views known on a protest against the corruption in the ANC Government in South Africa. 

A salesman comes in different shapes and forms. This one is selling Scientology on the streets of Cape Town. 

A man watches his daughter the bride, get into her limo in the Bo-Kaap, South Africa. 

A South African woman stands in front of a poster of the Women's Liberation Movement and agrees with their sentiments. 

Looking a little like a character out of the cast of "Les Miserables" this young man takes to the streets to protest the presidency of President Jacob Zuma of South Africa. 

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.
