Joburg: Space/Place

Joburg CBD, from Doornfontein to Newtown. A personal map I traversed end to end, by black taxi, by bus, mostly walking. What would be a sharp corner smoothly rounded, negotiating pedestrians, street vendors, traffic, in harmony with the inherent rhythm set by the people who used it.
The broad, instant scan, the noticing in-motion, heart, mind, sight open in the midst of an apparent chaos. The order, once understood, carried one as if in a stream (of consciousness if you like).
Decay, renewal, side by side seeming seamless.
