Photowalk: Troyeville and Maboneng

As I mentioned in a recent post, I went on my first photowalk a few weeks ago.  I had fun, despite forgetting to bring a back-up memory card and having to shoot in  low-quality JPEGs instead of RAW files!

We left from the Troyeville Hotel, walked through Maboneng, and ended up at Arts on Main.  Being quite a high-crime area, I found the opportunity to walk around and explore it fascinating (we figured that, as we were in a group of ~35, we were safe).

Walls were covered in beautiful grafiti…

…children played on the pavements…

…and various possessions hung out to dry on home-made clothes-lines.

The slightly-broken-down look that most of the places had was depressing, but also exactly what I adore photographing.
