I know im late with this post but my website was down over the new year period. So here it is!
New Years Day on Durban’s beachfront is something I look forward to and have photographed for a number of years now. It is literally one of those events I look forward to all year long, it’s awesome to see thousands of people loving life and enjoying our amazing beaches. A day on the beach on the 1st January, is part of our culture as South Africans and Durbanites. Now before you jump to all the negativity surrounding this occasion, that might I add happens once a year, think about this. For some this is the only time that they get to see the ocean the entire year, and majority of the people just want to enjoy their day and celebrate the start of a new year. Do you really have an issue with that!!
Something I noticed with last years blog was the amount of downright racist and unnecessary comments, come now guys it’s been over 20 years of the “New South Africa” but yet some people just can’t let it go. I think some need to build a bridge and get over it. So if you are thinking of posting any negative comments please dont waste your time as they will be deleted.
Each year the Durban beachfront is a swarm of activity, with people of all races and nationalities, (If you were there you would know), I am just so passionate about Durban and images like these just say one thing to me, that Durban really is making waves both locally and internationally. We have recently been voted no7 in the top 10 places to visit in 2015 and just the other day according to Mercer’s 2015 Quality of Living Rankings, Durban placed the highest in SA, if thats not saying something then I don’t know what will.
I personally spend many morning just walking along the beach soaking up that Durban magic.
Durban offers so much, we all just need to embrace it!
I challenge you to head down to the beaches next year and let’s make it 1 million people enjoying Durban, on the same day, as one.
Until next year…..
