Weekly Photo Challenge: On The Move

Here’s my take on this week’s photo challenge themed On The Move. They remind me so much of my childhood toy trains I used to enjoy constructing and playing.

Johannesburg Walkabout

We took a walk in the crowded and busy heart of Johannesburg and witnessed the following scene of street vendors being raided by police. Its a shame because street vendors make a living to feed their family by being in the streets. However, raidings do take place now and then and they’d probably lose that…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

Here’s my entry for this week’s photo challenge themed Letters. What does MaMa spell? The above image was taken from a moving vehicle, along the streets of Johannesburg and I was trigger-happy that afternoon. So, please excuse me for the lack of information on the building and its name. And I just can’t resist putting…

Soweto: Mandela House & Restaurant

I expected the Mandela House to be a huge mansion but instead, it is a regular sized house like where the average South Africans live in. Later, it made more sense to me because that was how he started off in those days. Please click here for more images of the house during restoration works….

Soweto: Vilakazi Street

This cute sculpture was seen in front of a church during our walk. After the Soweto Museum, we took a leisure walk to Vilakazi Street. I read and watched some travel documentaries about this street where you can get some interesting souvenirs and meet a famous souvenir vendor here, who has been featured on many of…

Soweto: Museum Visit

Our visit to this famous Soweto Museum (also known as Hector Pieterson Museum) was a long overdue one. We’ve been postponing it because some folks warned us against going there on our own and that Soweto is the most dangerous place to be if not with a tour group or without a local guide, as that’s…

“Taxis” Of South Africa

If some day you happen to be in South Africa and decided to try their public transport that is equivalent (by equivalent here I mean in terms of fare and frequency only) to buses in most parts of the world, then you would have to go loco and take their version of buses, better known…

Weekly Photo Challenge: On-Top

Here’s my submission for this week’s photo challenge, themed on-top. Top view of a stork in flight, somewhere in Norkem Park, Johannesburg.  Plenty of storks here and I’ve grown accustomed to the sound they make, which is loud and almost like that of the ducks. Top view of a nearby park, also in Norkem. You…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

Here’s my take on this week’s photo challenge, Monument. Following is just one of many statues of the late Nelson Mandela that are erected in his honour all over South Africa. Here, he is seen with two school children in a life size statue, that stands in the middle of a tall stairway, leading to…
