Street Portraits, Malealea Village, Lesotho, Southern Africa

 ' A shop owner and her daughter '

Every year in December I endeavor to travel and photograph in the rural areas of South Africa. I have done that for a couple of years now and have build up n comprehensive photographic portfolio of the people and places of our land. 

I prefer photographing in the Karoo, an arid region in the central part of South Africa, but recently the temperatures have become unbearable hot in December, which admittedly is in our hot summer season.

So this year my wife and I decided that we would visit the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho as its on a higher minimum altitude than any other country on earth and therefore hopefully a bit cooler!  It is also relatively close to where I live in Centurion near Johannesburg in South Africa
