Soweto iPhonography

I’m interrupting my Namibia series for this important announcement: 2Summers has procured an iPhone.


There are many secrets locked inside this mysterious machine that I have yet to discover. I don’t know how to activate the 3G, or to switch the ringer on from silent. But there is one thing I can say for certain: The camera works.

A few of the Jozi Instagrammers — or IGersJozi, as the group is called — met up on Sunday afternoon to shoot pictures around the Orlando Power Station in Soweto. It was my first time taking the iPhone on an instawalk and I went batshit crazy. I took dozens and dozens of photos and haven’t even gone through them all yet. But here are my favorites so far.

Click the thumbnails to see full-sized images.

It’s taking me a while to adjust to the tiny screen. And I need to remember than an iPhone battery dies quickly when you’re shooting ten photos a minute. But still. iPhonography is rad, dude. Especially in Soweto at Golden Hour.

Back to Namibia in the next post.

    Interesting lingo, these Instagrammers! It brought be back to high school where “sick” and “dude” were the go to words for guys. When I got to college, it was “epic” and “tragic” (along with sketchy and awkward).

      Oh yes, Epic is a big instagram word too!

    Def sick photos! I always geek out over iPhone-related goodies like the fisheye lens. They even have protective cases now that let you take your iPhonography underwater. #rad
