"I was on a photo walk through the streets of Cape Town when a lorry pulled up at a red traffic light. Workmen sitting on the back of the lorry noticed me and my camera; they began whistling, calling and singing. "Take our photo, we are cool men!" they shouted. That certainly made me laugh and as I raised my camera to my eye to snap the shot they all raised their hands with pride. One thing I miss about home is sharing a uniquely South African smile with fellow citizens."
