Welcome to Strydenburg !


I don't have much to say about sleepy Strydenburg, except that on the day we were there it was very hot and dusty.  But the town is neat & clean and the people are friendly!





The people were inquisitive and many came up to me asking why I as taking photographs of their town. They usually suspect that there is going to be some sort of development, and often it takes quite a bit of convincing that I am just a photographer traveling through the Karoo doing a personal project.

I asked Kiewiet Doorse sitting with his wife Magdalena in their backyard, ( the photograph below ),  'so, whats happening in town' ? He replied 'just what you are seeing' ! ...
