Recross way

Nabbed going 80 kmh through Cape Town, this man is climbing a staircase to a bridge that goes back over the highway. You can purchase naming rights of the bridge if you like, which seems very American to me, and I was surprised to see this sort of money-grab in South Africa.

When I returned to the USA I met a man from Togo at a wedding. Upon asking where he was from and explaining where I’d returned from, he was quick to point out while simultaneously gesturing to the beautiful room in which were were standing, “This business. America business.” He said it with a massive smile, with this calm body language that suggested it was why he was here. “Africa,” he said with an even bigger smile, “Africa, life.” He held his head cocked sideways to allow me to let it sink in, but I was already thinking the same way.

The boxer

Lots of boxes. I’m seeing boxes all over the place. People in boxes, looking into boxes, boxing their days around little events written into box-like calendars likely made out of recycled cardboard boxes. This man stood in a box inside of other boxes and stared into his little box and even wore an identification card that kept all his info nice and square for whomever had to let him into a box-like building to work. Even his shirt is nothing but a series of boxes.

Sometimes homeless people sleep in that doorway at night. The window is always decorated in a way to entice a business to set up shop, but it never comes. Photography is all boxes. Thankfully, the street is angled.
