This is the second photograph in a series of two:-

My father has been working in the motor industry since he was 18 years old. He decided to go into semi retirement just after his 88th birthday. Here he is with some of his staff in their warehouse on the first day of his semi retirement.

While photographing an ‘against animals in circuses’ protest in Centurion, Pretoria, a man came up to me and complimented us for making our voices heard. He then mentioned that he was a member of South Africa’s anti poaching unit. He then pulled up his sleeve and asked me if I would be interested in taking a photo of his tattoo. As you could imagine, I was blown away by what I saw…. Talk about putting your money where your mouth is!

If you would like to see what this gentleman looks like, you can have a look at the other photograph I took of him and posted on my John Golden Photography website.

My wife and I went to the Boeremark in Pretoria for the first time. We were blown away by our experience. The people were so friendly and we had a great time having conversations with many of the vendors and their customers. The atmosphere was more social rather than business like, even though it was as busy as can be. It is not typically “up market” and a large proportion of the vendors sell farm produce such as fruit, vegetables and dairy products while others sell crafts, fresh hot food and coffee. Others sell herbal products, art and craft works… and more.

I just had to take a photograph of this friendly vendor with her jovial hat and a beautifully finished hand woven leather carpet.

I decided to take a couple of photographs and felt that this scene with these people chilling in front of the open log fire was typical of this market’s atmosphere and captured the essence of what was going on.
