Africa is a hot place on so many levels. Travelling back there recently I realised what I miss about my homeland. I miss the vibrant, in your face colours you see in the clothing, in the landscape, in the people and in the art. I miss the smile the colours unwittingly bring to your mind... and I miss my symbol of home- the thorn tree. I miss the big skies and feeling of space. I miss the searing heat. This photo is my tribute to a place I used to call home.
