Sometimes when im taking photos, I have an audience. I love explaining to them what im doing. Every now and then though i get nasty comments from passers by. Its usually when people are in a group that they feel the need to misbehave, in a way that they wouldnt normally do. Once i was doing a timelapse near a very loud group of young people who turned out to be members of US Peace Corps. It wasn't long before they started looking at me and passing comments like "Al Qaeda" and "Isis" and "reconnaissance" and it really hurt a lot. There are many volunteers and interns in SA from all over the world from a host of organisations doing invaluable work in rural areas, hospitals, schools, and then there are those who are basically just here on a glorified paid holiday. Have you ever served as a volunteer, or intern or gap year in another country or plan to, and which country? #panning#capetown#southafrica#volunteering
