Alfred
Met Alfred this morning and we were both so happy to see each other after two weeks. We sat on the side walk of the main street just talking while Riaan went in to the shop. Laughing and talking. Alfred has no birth certificate and neither has he any ID documentation. This will now be my mission to use my contacts to get Alfred the necessary documentation so that he will be able to get an old age grant every month that will better his life.
When I returned to the car Riaan asked me “you really love old Alfred, don’t you?” I smiled at him and replied “very much”

Portrait of Mrs Annie
My journey with Annie began back in 2009 in the little informal Zulu settlement on the outskirts of town. All love her there, old and young and her chickens, dog and cat sleep inside her mud-hut every single night. This portrait of her was taken back in 2015. She was showing me how good her tomato crops was back in that early summer season of 2015.
She is one very funny and special character.

Have a lovely weekend all! :)

Boy and his cat.

One of my photos taken back in 2013. This young boy does not have the best of circumstances in his home and found great delight in this little fury ball of love. I returned the following week to drop a bag of cat food when the boy - crying uncontrollably managed to tell me that the kitten was gone. I could really feel my heart sinking into my feet as this appeared to be his only friend. In the weeks that followed I would drive by and find him sitting alone on the sidewalk. Until one day when there was another young boy helping him look for his cat.
They have since became great friends. Friendship comes in many different shapes and sizes :) Btw. this is how I met one of my best friends.......her cat went missing. We never found her cat either (:

But we did find friendship :)

Mr Whisky #2
My mom and I visited the town of Machadodorp one day back in 2012 when we saw him sitting at one of the trading posts enjoying a cool-drink. It was here with Mr Whisky that my portraits of the Distinguished Gentleman began. Its been one of the most enriching journeys of my life :)
