[column size=third position=first ]Just in case you hadn’t noticed, downtown Johannesburg has undergone something of a renaissance of late, with a burgeoning street culture reminding us that there’s more to the CBD than crime and bad parking. Rather than fearing it, many South Africans are rediscovering the heart of our most important city as somewhere that’s vibrant, interesting, full of history and strikingly photogenic.[/column] [column size=third position=middle ]Take Constitutional Hill, for example. A major landmark since it was the home of the Old Fort in 1892, the site functioned as a prison for women from 1907 and for prisoners awaiting trial from 1920. It was in use up to 1987. Today it is the home of the Constitutional Court, one of the highest courts in the land. And it’s also where we’ll be for our first PhotoComment Photowalk of 2013, and we hope you’ll join in.[/column][column size=third position=last ] Come to downtown Johannesburg on 25th May for our exclusive phototour of historic Constitutional Hill and its surroundings. We’ll be taking a tour of  the entire site and its historic environs, so you’ll learn at the same time as you take great shots of Joburg as you’ve not seen her before. And thanks to support from Epson and Sony, you’ll be able to try out the latest cameras and print your best pics of the day too. We’ll be meeting the News Cafe inside Joburg City Theatre at 9am.[/column]
