Vote For The Photo Of The Month: August 2012

  1. It is almost impossible to choose the standard is so high!!! But if there can be only one it is
    03 – Hassner Pepler with no 1 coming a very close second. I just loved the warmth of this picture. A different way of looking at what we usually scorn. Well done to the amazing finalists.

  2. Nr 3 by Hassner Pepler gets my vote. It tells a story. The old leaking shacks, now dangerously supplied with electricity connections shows that not much else has changed for a lot of people in South Africa in the last 22 years .
