I love the derelict because it makes for good photography, but today I found myself ashamed of the derelict, I found myself shameful of being South African.
You may think it is the politics of the last few days and you would be wrong in many ways.
I was organizing a photo-walk with a challenge, 50mm shallow depth of field, I wanted everyone to have an opportunity to get it right with little effort so the rest was up to creativity.
What a better place to do such a walk than a miniland full of historical building models?
This is a tourist attraction on the famed red bus tour after all, though I was told that it had gone down I thought of it as it need a coat of pain, was I wrong!
The place is a disgrace, it has not been maintained in so long it is literally falling apart, with an non-refundable entrance fee of R35 it is nothing short of grand theft.
Johannesburg Tourism owe to look into this and Santarama should just close it or refurbish it.
It is a petty because it is a good concept.
This is one of the better looking models.
