Tehran Night Market

This picture is from my seastar's album when she visited home in July.  I want to go to Iran and smell and taste all the wonder she captured in her pictures. She says I would love it, and I know I would. I am sure I have been there before in some other lifetime.  Now's the time to retap into my Farsi-speaking skills.

The Cape Argus Cycle Tour in Cape Town



 In just under 3 hours, womyn and men of the Cape Argus Cycle Tour completed the ride from Cape Town's city centre and back again on the most beautiful peninsula of the world.  I woke up on Sunday morning to cheers and clapping for the dedication of cyclists making their way around Boyes Drive in Muizenberg.  Just steps from our home was a refueling spot of blue energy drink and I managed to capture some young faces touring their own city's landscape on their self-powered bicycles.  It was a gorgeous Sunday of hope and positivity to watch thousands of people travel through the city.

Imported from Detroit

"This is what we do"

  Make cars?

Detroit is more than just a Motor City.  
 Imagine Metro-Detroit urban sprawl contracted back towards the center?
How would it grow?
Would we build it up with auto tire building material?
Would it become Tire city? Earthship City?  A prized example of environmental design?
Will the Motor City continue to progress by using old practices or innovating new ones?



This picture was taken July 2010: Heidelberg Project, Detroit

Detroit City has more features to build upon than Eminem, Fox Theatre and Chrysler Commercials.  There is room to define "This is what we do" and there are images from Detriot that will be shared to provoke positive questions and a redefinition of Detroit.

Graffiti Art on the Street talks back-Durban, South Africa


  We build walls, we break walls.

  We climb walls, we bomb walls.

 We stare at walls, we wonder . . . if walls could talk.

  We paint walls, so they talk back.

The EL in Chicago

I'm missing the El train.
The signs, the stops and the views above one of my favorite summer cities now covered in snow.

snoek at kalk bay

Slyvia at Kalk Bay Harbour: ‘Like you can say the best month would be if the snoek is running continuously cause that’s more in demand. The people want to hear nothing they look at all the fish down there… da da da…

“Is there any snoek? Where’s the snoek?”And they ignore all the other fish, yeah I had twenty five snoek yesterday that I got from somebody.. and all the other fish was lying down and they just picked the snoek most the times.

What it is, its um, how can I explain this now…it’s a, it can feed about the whole family and there’s leftovers.. your money can go further with that . . . more food with the snoek. Yes. It’s cheaper… it was R25 rand and some people took three some two and so there. Yeah’
