Photography and Passion

Photography has been a living passion in the lives of many. A sheer driving force in the backbone of those always striving for perfection in bringing a reproduction of something existing or created to life in the form of a visual art piece. An ever evolving art form and a rapidly expanding medium ensures the serious enthusiast and professional a growing and endless array of knowledge and expertise to create images that have the potential to evoke emotion which in turn makes the art limitless. Just as this art form evolves and recreates itself, so does CWPhotography.

Maponya Mall - Soweto - Copyright - Maponya Mall - Chris Wessles




















Maponya Mall lies in the heart of Soweto about 10 kms from the Baragwanath hospital on the Old Potch road. If you are ever in South Africa (or if you are here already) and ever around the Jo'burg area, I suggest you take a tour through Soweto and visit this mall, It is truly beautiful and interesting. Here you will be entertained and find real nicely priced goods as well. If you are into ethnic and cultural dress, there are a few gems to find here also. The people who frequent these corridors are very friendly and true to the warm African nature of making you feel welcome. Nice places to eat or stop for ice-cream or coffee and even something with a bit of a kick for the social occasion.
The surrounding Soweto suburbs also have allot to offer. It is very safe if you travel with someone who knows the area. I travel in and out of Soweto by myself often, I love the vibe and it is a very interesting place with loads of history!

The Penguins morning meditation - Copyright - Chris Wessels


After a chilly evening, with Falsebay gailforce winds in true fair Cape fashion adding to a misrable evening, I found these penguins warming up to the first rays of sunlight as if paying tribute to the sun gods.
