"I stand here before you not as a prophet but as a humble servant of you, the people. Your tireless and heroic sacrifices have made it possible for me to be here today. I therefore place the remaining years of my life in your hands." - First day of his release, Cape Town (11 February 1990)

Instead of testifying at the Rivonia Trial on his own behalf in 1964, Mandela decided to make a speech before his incarceration.
“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”

It’s been a long, stressful couple of weeks but here we are.

Balling / Olympus XA1 / 2013
I love finding an abandoned limo in an industrial area. Why is it there? Who’s inside? Are they waiting for a gang to exchange a bagful of cash for a tiny microchip? And most importantly, will they let me take a ride and make it rain cash on me if I ask real nice?

Kim in Leopard Print / Olympus XA1 / October, 2013
Growing up we always sang. But Kim was next level.
She’s kept me up with her antique piano vibrating through the wall late at night. She projects her voice like some kinda freak ventriloquist, sings offensive things in an opera voice to make it funnier. And most infuriatingly starts singing scales while you’re talking to her to show that what you are saying is irrelevant.
It’s been four years and now here she is: On the brink of being my own personal Kiri Te Kanawa / Final Recital tonight / Halla if you’re in the area : Baxter Concert Hall, Lower Campus, University of Cape Town, 17:45 See the event here
