Suburbs After Dark

One of the big differences between our typically White suburbs in South Africa, and our townships, is that White suburbs are deserted after dark. In the townships, there are children playing in the street, animals roaming free, couples walking hand in hand. Long after dark there is play and laughter and music. The time stamp on this photo is 8:33 pm. It is the township of Mountain View, next to Kareedouw in the Eastern Cape. That is mast lighting in the background, and a spaza shop on the right. In the townships which I visit, the streets are mostly untarred.
