From the Temple of Heaven Beijing. I like to take photos of people taking photos. Originally posted in Black and white I decided I prefer this colour version. #china #beijing #girl #parenting #modeling

This is a serious mountain. Shot last year in the middle of summer. Never seen so much snow in my life. The incomparable Mt Everest from the Tibetan side. #mteverest #everest #landscapephotography #landscape #mountain #tibet #himalayas
A barbershop owner I met in  Malvern Johannesburg. Trying a new way to process images. #streetphotography #streetstyle #barber #barbershop #socialdocumentary
Taking photographs this morning in Troyeville, the suburb adjoining my suburb, and came across this man cleaning up around his home. #streetphotography #socialdocumentary #cleaning #sweeping.
Proud home owner I met cleaning the pavement outside her lovely house. She is from Newcastle KZN, and so am I. #zulu #zuluwoman #homeowner #streetphotography #socialdocumentary #cleaning #sweeping #homedecor #houseproud
Pilgrims at 5600m on the three day trek around Mt Kailash in Tibet. What was amazing with this pair was the older lady is totally bling and a grandchild is leading her and directing the placement of every step. A lesson in patience, compassion, dedication and determination. #kora #compassion #blind #prayerflags #pilgrims #buddhism #tibet #kailash

Very old mine dump in Booysens Joburg. This pit is from the informal/illegal miners we call Zama Zamas that operate all over the gold fields of the Witwatersrand. A deadly occupation these men fight vicious territorial wars and face a highly toxic and dangerous working environment. We run into them on occasion and so far have had no trouble with them. #minedump #tailingsdam #mining #enviromentaldisaster #goldmining

This is not something I would normally shoot. I’m not font of abstractions but this alley in Braamfontein caught my eye and it was such an obvious image I couldn’t say no. #urbanphotography #wall #abstractart

Went camping last weekend. For four days. It rained for the first two days, really rained. South Africans don’t do well in the rain. We are unused to it and we tend to hide indoors when ever the weather gets bad. That’s not an option when camping. In desperation I shot this image of the rain splashing into the farm dam. It sums up the mood of the day I think. Then the sun came out and it was glorious. #rain #lake #water #rainyweather #raindrops #gloomy

A cultural experience in South Africa, rugby. The first game of the season at Emirates Park, old Ellis Park. The Lions vs the The Sharks. So hot we prayed for the sun to go down. A terrific evening.  #rugby #superrugby #suoerrugby2018 #sharksrugby #lionsrugby #ellispark #rugbytime
As a working photographer I have photographed many chairs. Thousands of chairs actually and that is not an exaggeration. This chair is definitely the strangest. Made from the root bole of a large tree the only way I can think to describe it is intimidatingly ugly. It took a forklift to move it. #chair #ugly #factory #abandoned #abandonedplaces

From the old factory in Booysens. I was fascinated by the marks left by workers laying gone. Lives were spent in this space. #pinupgirl #factory #abandoned

Shot this afternoon on my iPhone. Not the way I usually work. A derelict old brewery in Booysens. It has been shuttered for 18 years. Full of bird shit. I am going back tomorrow with the Sony to shoot it properly. #documentary #urbandecay #urbanexploration #brewery #abandonedplaces
I am looking to photograph more of these roadside memorials in South Africa. I would appreciate any information regarding location and background on these sad reminders. #roadsidememorials #memorials #roadsafety #documentaryphotography
Who doesn’t love a pretty sunrise now and again? Well apparently me so here is a sunrise over a mine dump south of Joburg. #mining #sunrise #blackandwhite #landscape #jozigrams
