When a picture plays a song...

There are times when you look at a picture and you can hear music tinkling in your mind.

It stirs emotion and you feel a message that is yours. Just for you. Each of us hear our own message as the beauty of the image lies in the mind of its beholder.

I never asked his name. All he wanted was for me to take his picture. At the time I was sceptical, what if he robbed me, I thought. But I complied. And for me this is one of the best pictures I’ve taken.

These are Cape Town on a cloudy day...

Colours and textures at a construction site.

For most images, I hear a background tune playing but when taking a picture all I hear is sublime silence.
