Faces On The Donkin Reserve

Spotting quirky street art is something I love to do at home, and away, and South Africa was no exception. My last day in Port Elizabeth before hitting the road for the rest of my roadtrip included a wander over Donkin Reserve, after spotting the space on the way to the cricket the previous few days.

Here on a public space on the hill, overlooking Mandela Bay, was an area reserved with historical and political importance. A huge national flag floats above it, a stateu of Nelson Mandela is prominent, there is a lighthouse, and then there is a sprinkling of art around. It is a revamped space in the city, a result of the FIFA World Cup across the country a few years ago.

These faces caught my eye as a piece of humanity and sassy, as you wander through the reserve. Each showing the strong personalities of the Rainbow Nation, unique, different, and intriguing.
