"ngibiza igama lakho" - "I call your name" : isiZulu
(direct translation - I call name your)

This is the guy who I found looking for work on the streets. He works in my garden and is just such a delight - yup that's a bead of sweat on his left cheek. He's small and wiry and his most often used expression is "don't you worry!" ... would have been a great subject for Dichotomy if one could submit background info with the image.

This photo is standing out from the crowd of all the western portraits. Adding something extra with the black&white image.

Love the expression on his face. When you see the smile all you can think is Happiness or joy. Great B&W conversion. Nice work.

"I Call Your Name". Must be someone from Kwa-Natal! Or a Johnny Clegg fan.

I like the black and white treatment. It feels a bit like a passport photo though. Maybe a different crop?
