Enjoying the sun

Enjoy the sun

This is one of my favourite photos from Paul's Photowalk set. I love the facial expressions, the composition, the way these people were taking advantage of Saturday's summery weather to warm themselves up, the inclusion of the "Happy Birthday Madiba" poster to the left of the group, and the selection of photos on the wall just behind their heads.

If you're wondering about those photos on the wall (and I certainly was), Paul shot this scene just outside the offices of the Cape Argus, and presumably those are some of their recent or most popular press shots. I guess that makes this another example of meta-photography. :)

    Those photos are nominees for and winners of the “World Press Photo” award. So, meta-photography at its best. (;

    Nice picture, great blog!

    I was going to say that that’s outside the Independent Newspapers building. I used to walk past there every day.

    That is a great shot by Paul. It’s so Cape Town, too!

    @Stefan, thanks for that – it’s always great to get more background (ha ha ha ;-)) info on the photos we take. I was thinking that those photos on the wall looked pretty decent – now I know why. :)

    Glad to see that you all like this photo as much as I do!

    Thanks everyone. I’m a little shy when it comes to taking posed photos of people, but the guy second from the left *really* wanted their photo taken to a point that it would have been rude not to. :) I do dig this shot too though.
