I got shot…
Calm down. Not me – but stay with me and read on…. and you’ll find out something I bet you did not know about some people who were shot in a project called I got shot (in Johannesburg) ! (You can see some of them in the video at the bottom !)
Street Photography. I absolutely love it. And you?
If you are in Hong Kong and you love it too, you can consider going on a Walk with a Group who shares the same passion and while being on the walk, take some great street shots of alleys and buildings from days gone by. There is one this coming Saturday and you can find the details here.
But here is the other super cool project that I wanted to tell you about !! This one is pretty exciting and based in South Africa – for A SUPER CAUSE !!
It is STREET PHOTOGRAPHY taken to a different level !!
It’s called i got shot in johannesburg.
In 2009, street children were given disposable cameras to shoot some images in the area in and around Hillbrow, Johannesburg. These images were used to teach these kids skills and to generate some income to provide them a platform to be saved from their situations ! But I don’t want to spoil it for you.
Do go visit their website, called iwasshot in johannesburg, and you will see what this amazing and exciting project is all about ! Such a great initiative and we need to spread awareness to support them and help these kids to a better future by supporting their online stores and merchandise that resulted from this as it evolved over the past few years.
What do you think about it? Pretty cool, right ?
Well, it’s Friday and that means one thing – WEEKEND !!!! Have some happiness and a double dose of dessert this weekend.
From me to you. XIlze
