Shopping for the Game – Flickr pic of the day
Asiye says, “The photo was taken on Youth Day, a public holiday in South Africa, in Greenmarket Square as I was walking back from the Fan Fest. Lots of the shops were closed, but there was a wonderful vibe on the square. Everybody was in a relaxed and festive mood.
“I love how soccer memorabilia has taken over African ones and how the vendors themselves clearly enjoy displaying and wearing their goods. I was trying to capture this very friendly and passionate spirit which makes this World Cup, in my opinion, really special.
“I have been taking all my photos around the World Cup and its festivities in B&W because I feel that the vibrant array of colours distracts from the joy and camaraderie the people have been feeling here.”
