On the way to Franschhoek I passed this store and decided to add it to my ongoing "Roadside" Project. What is starting to strike me in the exploration is the way that people everywhere are all trying to leave their mark somewhere, branding spaces to insure they won't be forgotten.

Continuing on from a previous post, I have started documenting roadside shops in the winelands.
This weekend I travelled around Cape Town, from Woodstock to the Northern Suburbs. I like to go out shooting on Sunday afternoons when most are enjoying a nap and the streets are empty. I find the stark emptiness of the usually hurried city I work in daily to be a calm relief and I like to highlight the beauty we drive by each day. I sometimes would sit in traffic and see spots I'd like to revisit when clear of the madness and emotion. And all that remains is the story of the buildings, leaving subtle questions rather than shouted answers.

I've spent the last weekend at a little beach-town on the west coast. Going out of the busy season is best because I had all the time in the world to explore with my camera.
