On Sunday 23 March 2014 we gathered in Kliptown, Soweto for the #KliptownMeet, organised by @LeboLukeWarm.

It was my second visit to Kliptown, and being a Sunday afternoon, the township was bustling with activity, and filled with kids. This was in sharp contrast to my previous visit, which happened midday on a Saturday, when the township was much quieter.

I found it a bit frenetic, to be honest. The kids were all over us, positively bubbling with enthusiasm, loving having their pictures taken and seeing them instantly on our phones and camera bodies.

I also felt a tad isolated, and envious of my compatriots familiar with the custom, and able to converse with the many interesting faces. I also kicked myself for not bringing my SLR along – many photo opportunities were missed.

There was a great turnout and everyone seemed to enjoy it. I can’t wait to go back.

My shots from the day below:
