Old salts in Salt River

Happy New Year! Here’s another in the Salt River series. These two gents I think were waiting for a ride – which was going to come down a street along which the sun was nearly horizontal and in their faces. I liked the contrasty lighting, along with their facial expressions, the extremely gritty wall next to them, and the shadow behind them.
Odd thing about this area – it’s pretty much an urban wasteland, and looks fairly mean, but I don’t feel threatened there. That’s in marked contrast to other suburbs of Cape Town like Plumstead where I have felt extremely uneasy when taking street shots. Mind you I feel pretty uneasy about the original Plumstead in London, and don’t even get me started about Peckham.
