SA vs Colombia friendly game at Soccer City. This was before the game started, so the stadium was still filling up. It would eventually swell to a crowd of 75000 for this game, two weeks before the World Cup 2010 opening match at the same stadium.

Great shot. I really like the sense of movement and life that we're given by the color of the stands and the arms of the fans.

10 because this is so apt. There's no other way to describe life in SA nowadays but the WC 2010. Well done!

Cool shot. I grew up and spend the first 25 years of my life in and around Joburg. Used to live in Germiston back in the 60's 70's. I used to be a real dagga smoking Hillbrow joller over the week-ends. Things have changed somewhat.
