Johannesburg City (4 pages)

I did not start taking pics in and around Johannesburg until the advent of the digital camera. The beauty of them is that you can shoot tons of images at very little expense, something that was not possible using film cameras. Unfortunately many of  my images are really of the modern city as opposed to the old one that I grew up in.

The city that I knew does not exist any longer, what is left are remnants and memories, as well as a legacy of the place that was. I do not make any excuses for what I see, but often Johannesburg is its own worse enemy, and there is often a urge to portray the city in a negative light. I try to avoid it as much as possible. As usual this is an ongoing work
