Mother goat with new-born baby, South Africa

I became interested in looking back at photos I have taken in small towns in South Africa after reading an article in the Daily Maverick by Julienne Du Toit, co-author with Chris Marais of a recent book Moving to the Platteland: Life in Small Town South Africa (see Her article, Decoding the Platteland – the Social Magic of a South African Dorp, discusses the sense of community and proximity to nature that can be found in small towns.
