My professional life came to an end 8 years ago. For 30 years I worked with development projects on the African continent, and I lived in Johannesburg for 7 years. When I retired I moved back to my childhood village that I had left 50 years ago. The landscape is familiar, and I enjoy taking photos around the house. It's amazing how the light and the surroundings change with the seasons. Familiar and strange at the same time.
