When your car feels like home.

Left in the dark of morning, returned in the dark of night.
Hours in my car. Waiting for clearances. Working without a brief. Unexpected complications.

It was a tough week.
A scout went ahead and the pictures he brought back made me cry.
I fell irresistibly in love with a fat orphan baby.

They all made my heart contract.

Again, moments unphotographed: laundry day in Khayelitsha - lines of washing as far as the eye could see, one line containing only leagues of socks, pegged from big to small. Three young men next to the road with tall staffs and a vast herd of assorted dogs. And I told myself, wishfully: next time.
