Go All Night

Every time I've gone out with my friends, I've always noticed all these really beautiful aesthetically cohesive moments and wished I'd had the strength to carry my camera around all the time. Things like the way pink, red and purple lights fall of everyone's faces, girls with giant hair shouting the words to Ashanti and Ja Rule's Always On Time and overdressed Joburg stylistas pigging out on McDonald's or Burger King.

This is Kelicia running away because a creepy old man was watching me take photos of her and Kate and not having the most kosher of things to say at that.
"Khensani, you look so mad."
"This is the only face I have!"
All the people working at the gas station took the time out of their busy 19h45 schedule to watch us take photos of each other. It was so incredibly uncomfortable.
Kelicia making arrangements for the night.
"MY ANACONDA DON'T want none of this car any longer, on the real though.""

Any crazy nights you ever wanted to capture?

  1. This is perfect. The other night I was trawling ROOKIE archives and read all the Out All Night posts (some for the third or fourth time) and they made me want to leave my bed. Go out into the night and meet brilliant strangers in the haze of Jozi's night-time. Or maybe just sit in front of a plate of chips and watch everyone.

    Also, who's your chauffeur? You know how to live, girl.

    1. Rookie's Out All Night posts actually inspired my need to take photos like this. You really should explore Jozi's night-time, the people can be such a sight sometimes. I'm usually the type to sit in a corner, imagining myself as one of them.

  2. OMG I love love love this post! I identify with this so much. Whenever I'm out I always wish I had my camera with me to capture the dozens of photo-worthy moments. Also, can we discuss Kelela for a moment? Love her, she is seriously perfect <3 These photographs go so well with the overall sound of this song, it's insane

  4. Such a perfect post Khensani. I love the carefree, spontaneous vibes you get on nights like these. Anything could happen, you're not in control but it's nice. I always feel like I'm living in some sort of time-lapse. I never have any camera of some sort to capture these moments though. :(
